8. Hallelujah. The word is of Hebrew origin and is translated as Praise Ye. We do not believe that any one artists’ singles prevails over the others in popularity. The religious song itself outweighs any recorded performance.
7. Let Her Go as performed by music artist Passenger. The song was released in July 2012. The song is a mega-hit love song as it sat atop the Billboard Hot 100.
6. The Star-Spangled Banner It does not surprise me that this is in the top most searched songs. The song is commonly sung in schools to start the school day. With the Super Bowl being this weekend, many people want to verify all of the song’s words to know if Idina Menzel will sing the song perfectly. This is a common proposition bet in Las Vegas sports books.
5. Shake It Off as performed by Taylor Swift. The album 1989 was released in August 2014 and transitioned Taylor from a Country emphasis to Pop. Of course the song reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
