Oops! Sorry, I posted it in the wrong part of the forum :/ Can a mod move it to [Australia - non ARIA] please?
Thanks for posting! Very interesting to see an Australia-specific list.

Compared to *worldwide* Spotify plays, the biggest songs I see that don't appear here are Sublime - Santeria (which ranks probably #35-ish on Spotify, so all the absolute biggest ones are here), The Offspring - The Kids Aren't Alright, Incubus - Drive and Haddaway - What Is Love.

Surprised at the numerous Alan Jackson songs.
The whole top 20 doesn't surprise me much, with the exception of "All I Want For Christmas Is You", 'cause that only really gets streamed in the lead up to Christmas time. Sure, the Christmas period means that it does get streamed a lot, but enough to be #8 overall for songs from the 1990s... I'm a bit sceptical about that fact

A bunch of classics in the top 200! Happy with the amount of entries 2Pac, Bon Jovi, and Dr Dre have
Disappointed that "Sandstorm" isn't higher than #86 though
I am not surprised to see Backstreet Boys make it but I am surprised to see them come in at #2. Feels a bit odd as that being the 2nd biggest song from the 90's. Otherwise not many surprises at all. Did I miss Wilson Phillips? They always seem to feature in the ITunes chart every now and then.
@theogsean I definitely believe it. On Spotify worldwide it's the 3rd-most-played '90s song:

PlaysSong
667,807,823Wonderwall
542,498,943Smells Like Teen Spirit
493,187,129All I Want For Christmas Is You

391,300,508Still D.R.E.
383,866,386I Want It That Way
367,639,601Creep

The thing is just that its November/December plays are so big that they make up for the rest of the year. For example from records of mine, during 2017, these are how many plays those top 5 songs got each month:

AIWFCIY was only doing about 5% as much as SLTS in the middle of the year, but then the plays it got in December were as much as SLTS had done in 9 months.

Of course, Spotify is different to Apple Music, and worldwide is different to Australia, but the patterns should be similar. Also, naturally, AIWFCIY would slip down the list over the course of the year and then rebound sharply in November/December, so how high it places would depend if the list is published in January or September
I'd love Apple Music to do similar lists for the 70s, 80s and 00s.

Thanks to the mod who moved the topic to the right part of the forum btw.

you didn't even need to ask me
Thank you then lol
Wow very interesting read. Is Madonna not on Apple Music?
Elsewhere, happy to see Mariah in the top ten (even if it is the seasonal hit) and other surprises for me is the frequency of 2Pac tracks (including one I've never heard of at #52), and only one Spice Girls track making the top 200!
Madonna isn't strong on streaming services, so it's not surprising not to see her on this list.
I never thought she would be particularly strong, but I thought at least Vogue or Ray of Light would sneak in.
Vogue ew
