On this morning’s broadcast of Says You, host Richard Sher asked the panel which twentieth-century pop song has been played more than any other on the radio. First guess, “White Christmas,” was not bad, but I think maybe it just seems to get more air play than any other song, especially right around the middle of December.

Next, they blew several guesses on Beatles tunes, but they didn’t get anywhere with that and finally had to ask for a hint. When the host told them it was recorded by The Righteous Brothers it didn’t take them long to get the correct answer, “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling”, which has been played on the radio 45 million times.

That doesn’t seem right, does it? I’m pretty sure our local oldies station has played “Crocodile Rock” at least 45 million times in the five years I’ve been tuning in. Even if that’s an exaggeration I’ll bet it’s not far off.

My Darling B thinks it’s got to be “Bohemian Rhapsody”, but I say if any song by Queen has a chance of being played more than any other pop song it’s got to be “We Are The Champions”, which is playing in my head right now and won’t stop for at least a week, now that I’ve thought of it.
