These Were The Most Popular Songs Of The Decade

HUNGARY-NEWYEAR-2019

Well, it's that time of year again. We start counting everything down from the year and rounding up all the "best of the year" lists. But what makes this year even more special is that with the close of 2019 comes the close of a DECADE. So instead of only looking back at the last 12 months, we're looking back on the last 10 years.

And something about it makes me very nostalgic. I mean, this decade was when I got married, got this job on the morning show, had my TWINS, and a million other things in between.

And with all those things, of course, comes the soundtrack we experienced them to: music.

So one streaming platform calculated what the most popular songs of the YEAR were... and then took things one step further and calculated the most popular songs of the decade.

First, lets take a look at the most popular songs of 2019.
