Staff Writer

‘Happy’ from Pharrell was the most played song on Australian radio in 2014 (suprised right?).

AirCheck™ has released the figures showing ‘Happy’ in the top spot with 18,872 spins and Australian act Sheppard with ‘Geronimo’ in second place with Airplay of 18,015 times.

 

Keith Williams, RCS Vice President Asia Pacific said, “Nova 100 in Melbourne wins the prize for playing ‘Happy’ the most times in Australia in 2014 (972) with Nova 969 in Sydney close behind (961).

"It is great to see 3 Australian songs in the Top Ten in 2014 Sheppard (#2), Sia (#2), 5 Seconds of Summer (#6). There are a total of 20 Australian artists in the Top 100 most played songs for 2014”
