Bauer’s Greatest Hits Radio is this week counting down the Top 300 Most Streamed Songs from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. In fact, I’m reliably informed that Mark Goodier fella has already started the countdown.

The radio firm has worked with the Official Charts Company to work out which 300 songs that originally charted in the UK in those three decades has been streamed the most.

Apparently we can expect “a host of interesting revelations about the cultural moments that have propelled some of these artists and songs into our very special official chart”. Although it won’t be that much of a revelation to learn why Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ is presumably in this Top 300.

Says Goodier: “I cannot wait to kick off the UK’s Official Top 300 Most Streamed Songs of the 70s, 80s and 90s – there are some absolute classics in this chart as well as a few more unexpected tunes”.

“I’ve spent many hours of my career hosting countdowns but this one even threw up a few surprises for me!”, he adds. “What’s wonderful is that so many of these iconic hits are the soundtrack of our lives yet feel just as current now as they’re reinvented for films, TV shows and social media”.

“It’s a fascinating insight into not only what were the greatest hits then”, he reckons of the chart, “but what are the greatest hits now”.
