  2. Wow! Half of the top 10 most played songs of all-time. Thats impressive. Its hard to believe that as much as we love Tim in the US, he's even more popular in England and all over the world. Keep brining the heat. Time to get all ten of those high scores. Donkey Kong style.

  3. Im from the UK and i find this very surprising

  4. The fact that these songs are all recent tracks just goes to show that radio is playing the same songs over and over at a higher and higher rate.

  5. congratulations onerepublic! i've been following them for a while and they are amazing

  6. umm how dus that work, when umbrella wa ssupposed to be te biggest or nearly the biggest jam of the summer IN THE UK?

  7. That article is actually concerns the US pop radios not UK...Apologize actually received the most spins ever on a day on pop radios (over 10330 spins)and I remember "promiscuous" having that record last year so.
