And the most popular song of 2012 was...
Snifter was informed today, much to his disappointment, that Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ was the top-played song across many of the nation’s jukeboxes in 2012.

Soundnet, which supplies music to over 15,000 Sound Leisure jukeboxes across the UK, put together the figures with the Canadian’s singer’s annoyingly catchy number one hit proving most popular among punters.

Nevertheless, two of Snifter’s favourites took the top two slots in the overall Artists figures, with Oasis and Rihanna edging out Flo Rida and lesser know artists Elvis Presley and the Beatles.

Commenting on jukebox predictions for 2013, Soundnet spokesperson Toby Hoyte said: “Soundnet predicts big things from Biffy Clyro, Azealia Banks, Tom Odell, Bon Jovi and Lady Gaga in the first part of the year. Pub operators should remember that as well as new material, it still pays to include handpicked tracks from the past in the jukebox library.”

The full list for 2012 is as follows:

1. Oasis
2. Rihanna
3. Flo Rida
4. Elvis Presley
5. Beatles
6. Ed Sheeran
7. Nicki Minaj
8. AC/DC
9. Carly Rae Jepsen
