music news 22/11/2019

Can you believe the decade is almost over? It certainly doesn't feel like it's been 10 years since 2010 kicked off, but alas the time has slipped away - at least we got some banger tunes out of it though.

Billboard have released the top dance/electronic songs and albums of the decade this week, so it's time to reminisce. 

Pulling in the top spot for song of the decade is a pretty recent tune, Marshmello and Bastille's 'Happier'. The song has remained at No. 1 for 60 consecutive weeks and counting since it was released in September 2018 - what an achievement. 

The Chainsmokers and Coldplay's collab was also up there with 'Something Just Like This' from 2017 pulling in at No. 2, followed by Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey's 'The Middle' from 2018 at No. 3. Avicii came in at No. 4 with Aloe Blacc with their tune 'Wake Me Up' from 2013, which made a resurgance after Avicii's death in April last year. No. 5 went to Major Lazer and DJ Snake's collab with MO 'Lean On' from 2015. 

Surprisingly, Lady Gaga's album 'The Fame' is the top performing dance/electronic album of the decade, even though it came out in 2008. The album spent a total of 108 weeks at No. 1, topping the charts for 62 of those weeks withing the past 10 years. 

The rest of the top 5 albums was rounded out by Daft Punk's Random Access Memories at No. 2, David Guetta's Nothing But the Beat at No. 3, ODESZA's In Return at No. 4 and The Chainsmokers' Collage EP at No. 5. 

What a decade it's been!
