The latest end-of-the-decade list comes courtesy of the UK Official Singles Chart, which has revealed the 100 biggest songs of the decade. Of course being UK exclusive, Ed Sheeran tops the list with ease, snagging three of the top ten spots, and nearly four, also taking #11 with “Castle On The Hill.” Also, being the UK, dance music is far more represented as it regularly plays on the radio, much more so than in the US.
To that end, sixteen dance music songs are featured in the top 100 (a few more if you count Clean Bandit as “EDM,” though they’re ostensibly crossover). Calvin Harris receives the most recognition with four songs included in the list: “One Kiss,” “We Found Love,” “This Is What You Came For,” and “How Deep Is Your Love.”
The rest of the dance music on the list features names like Major Lazer, Swedish House Mafia, Mr Probz, and The Chainsmokers. But, the highest on the list, coming in at #13, is Avicii with “Wake Me Up.”
