Macarena - Los Del Rio 8. Physical - Olivia Newton-John 9. You Light Up My Life - Debby Boone 10. Hey Jude - The Beatles

Not a very satisfying list.

Mariah Carey and Jewel made the top 20 but not the top 10:

Top selling digital singles of all time:

Kesha "Tik Tok" is number 1 with 15 million units sold. 

A more respectable list derived from lists of songs considered the best:

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" – Nirvana (6 times) "Hotel California" – Eagles (4 times) "Billie Jean" – Michael Jackson (4 times) "One" – U2 (3 times) "Imagine" – John Lennon (3 times) "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" – The Rolling Stones (3 times) "Sweet Child O' Mine" – Guns N' Roses (3 times) "Stairway to Heaven" – Led Zeppelin (3 times) "Like a Virgin" – Madonna (3 times)


Now I gotta listen to Smooth again.

#2 of all time? Really??
