Last.fm Trends: Lady Gaga And Adele Face-Off In Radiohead’s Shadow
Eight of the ten most-played tracks in the last seven days are new Radiohead songs, followed at #9 by Adele’s single “Rolling In The Deep” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” at #10.
While Gaga’s play count is predictably massive (only two Radiohead tracks beat it – “Lotus Flower” and “Codex”) she’s beaten by Adele’s appeal; 1,222 more listeners played the British singer’s single last week.
Both are a long way behind Radiohead, whose least popular new track – “Morning Mr Magpie” – still has more listeners than both of the ladies combined. Just behind them Katy Perry (“Firework”) and Rihanna (“Only Girl (In The World)”) lie in wait.
