The most searched songs of all time on Shazam

Founded in 2002, Shazam is a popular service that offers customers the ability to recognise a song by using the microphone built into the mobile phone.

Shazam is a great tool when we don't know a song, especially when the song is by an emerging or little-known artist.

In December 2017, Apple announced the acquisition of the company and today a playlist called 'Top 100 Shazams of All Time' is available on Apple Music. Here, as certified by Apple Music, are the most 'shazammed' songs of all time.

7. Take Me to Church - Hozier
A song that caused much discussion, not for its unquestionable beauty, but for its contents in open polemic with the Church. Despite this, 'Take Me to Church' achieved worldwide success, being the most listened to song on Spotify in 2014.

6. Perfect - Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran has stated that he wrote 'Perfect' with the goal of making his best love song ever: and the goal has most likely been achieved, given the incredible fame this single has achieved.

5. Roses (Imanbek Remix) - SAINt JHN
"Roses" was originally released in July 2016, but the most successful version is the one remixed by Kazakh producer Imanbek in 2019: this new version won the Grammy Award for best remixed recording. If you don't know the song, try searching for it: you will realise that you have probably heard it at least once, even if you didn't know its title.
