The Most-Played Karaoke Song Of 2012 Surprisingly Isn’t By Journey

Haha, don’t worry: “Don’t Stop Believin'” is #9. No, the shocking choice for the most-played karaoke song of 2012, according to Lucky Voice, isn’t that shocking at all: it’s Adele, whose “Somebody Like You” accounted for “7.4% of all plays” on the website. That’s 2% higher than runner-up “Call Me Maybe” and nearly 6% higher than Journey’s 1.7% It’s unknown how many people played Nicole Westbrook, but it’s not high enough.

1. ‘Someone Like You’ – Adele (7.4 per cent)
2. ‘Call Me Maybe’ – Carly Rae Jepsen (5.4 per cent)
3. ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ – One Direction (4.2 per cent)
4. ‘Rolling In The Deep’ – Adele (4.1 per cent)
5. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ – Queen (3.7 per cent)
6. ‘Make You Feel My Love’ – Adele (3.6 per cent)
7. ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ – Bon Jovi (2.7 per cent)
8. ‘Sexy And I Know It’ – LMFAO (2.4 per cent)
9. ‘Don’t Stop Believin” – Journey (1.7 per cent)
10. ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ – Gotye feat Kimbra (1.6 per cent) (Via)

And for the 21st year in a row, “Excursions” by A Tribe Called Quest has been denied its rightful spot in the top-10. Someday, people. (Also, pretty sure this is the only year-end popular music list that doesn’t mention “Gangnam Style.” Savor it.)
