    ◎串流媒體目前在音樂領域已經穩固地建立起來,佔英國音樂消費的一半以上,不僅是新歌會有數百萬的播放量,許多經典歌曲現在也在尋找數量龐大的受眾群。儘管2017年播放量前十名的歌曲全部都是在當年發行的,但2016年之前發行的歌曲佔到2017年音樂串流量的55%。◎聖誕經典歌曲的季節性吸引力是串流媒體上的流行舊歌曲目的明顯選擇,去年Wham的〈Last Christmas〉成為在串流媒體上最受歡迎的80年代發行歌曲,2017年串流播放了2400萬次,其次是The Pogues和Kirsty MacColl合作的〈Fairytale Of New York〉,有2050萬次。緊接著因節慶而受歡迎的歌曲之後,不意外的是Toto的〈Africa〉,去年在英國有將近1800萬次的串流播放;這首1982年發行的軟式搖滾經典,在串流媒體時代找到了新的觀眾,部分原因是懷舊的千禧世代重溫了這首歌,以及在網路上有無數的關於這首歌的爆紅哏和散文。同樣的狀況也發生在Earth Wind & Fire的〈September〉,這首歌出現在熱門電影《魔髮精靈》中,並且是去年最受歡迎的70年代歌曲,有1750萬次的串流。

    ◎比較令人驚訝的是Train的〈Hey Soul Sister〉,這是在串流媒體上最受歡迎的2009年發行的曲目,有1170萬次串流;這首流行民謠在當時是一首廣播電台熱播歌曲,但在英國排行榜上的成績一般,2010年時在英國金榜單曲榜最高只到第18名,在年度暢銷榜上為第84名。而去年在串流媒體上最受歡迎的90年代歌曲是Oasis在1995年推出的〈Wonderwall〉,串流播放量超過2700萬次,以少許差距擊敗Mariah Carey於1994年發行的聖誕歌曲〈All I Want For Christmas Is You〉,這首歌有2600萬次串流。

    ◎The Killers在2003年的〈Mr Brightside〉的持久魅力使其成為2000至2010這10年間最受歡迎的歌曲,僅在2017年就有4200萬次串流。而The Jackson 5於1969年的單曲〈I Want You Back〉是去年在串流媒體上最受歡迎的60年代歌曲。

    With streaming now firmly established in music – accounting for over half of music consumption in the UK – it’s not just new songs that are racking up millions of plays, many classics are now finding a sizeable audience. Tracks released before 2016 (what can loosely be defined as ‘catalogue’ songs) made up 55% of music streaming in 2017, despite the Top 10 most played tracks of the year all being released in 2017. The seasonal appeal of Christmas classics are the obvious choice for popular catalogue songs on streaming, and last year saw Wham’s Last Christmas become the most popular song on streaming released in the 1980s with 24 million plays in 2017, closely followed by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale Of New York on 20.5m. Behind the festive favourites, not completely unsurprisingly, is Toto’s Africa, which notched up just under 18m plays in the UK last year. The soft rock classic, released in 1982, has found a new audience in the streaming era thanks in part to nostalgic Millennials revisiting the song as well as countless memes and essays about the song online. The same goes for Earth Wind & Fire's September, which also featured in the hit film Trolls and was the most popular single of the 1970s last year with 17.5m streams. More surprising is Train’s Hey Soul Sister, which was the most streamed track of 2017 released in 2009, with 11.7 million plays. The folk-pop number was a huge radio hit but only a moderate UK chart success at the time, peaking at Number 18 on the Official Singles Chart in 2010 and finishing as the 84th best-seller of that year. Meanwhile, the most streamed track of the 1990s last year was Oasis’ 1995 hit Wonderwall with just over 27m plays, narrowly beating Mariah Carey’s 1994 yuletide favourite All I Want For Christmas Is You with 26m streams. Elsewhere, the enduring appeal of The Killers’ Mr Brightside makes 2003 the golden song of the Noughties, acquiring 42m plays in 2017 alone, while The Jackson 5’s 1969 single I Want You Back was the most popular track of the 1960s last year. Take a look at the complete list of the most streamed songs of 2017 by year of release below, compiled by the BPI using Official Charts Company data
