What Songs Have the Most “Thumbs Up” Ratings This Year?

As we approach the end of the year, it’s time for a deluge of lists about music. Take this one from Pandora, the Internet radio service. If you’ve never used it (and because it’s not available in Canada, you probably haven’t), it uses a thumbs-up/thumbs-down approach in order to learn the preferences and tastes of users.

Digital Music News has a list of the songs receiving the most thumbs-up ratings by Pandora’s users so far this year.

1 Earned It The Weeknd
2 See You Again (Feat. Charlie Puth) Wiz Khalifa
3 Uptown Funk (Feat. Bruno Mars) Mark Ronson
4 Thinking Out Loud Ed Sheeran
5 Only (Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown) Nicki Minaj
6 Blank Space Taylor Swift


Trap Queen Fetty Wap
8 The Hills The Weeknd
9 I Don’t F**k With You (Feat. E-40) Big Sean
10 Love Me Like You Do Ellie Goulding

For the full list, go here. I wonder what songs received the most thumbs-down ratings?

  • Wow. Remind me not to hang out with Pandora fans. Their taste in music is sad.
