The World's All-Time Best-Selling Songs

This list was originally posted 12/29/2011. Revised 11/22/2018.

This list is a compiled from a variety of sources for sales figures (see complete source list here), but they are generally estimates since there is no official agency to track worldwide sales. As such, it is highly possible that some of these sales figures have been inflated by record companies or other vested parties, but this list does at least offer some idea of the world’s best-selling songs.

If you have your doubts about some of these songs belonging on this list, you’re not alone. I realize my knowledge of music beyond U.S. shores is limited, but if songs like Thelma Aoyama’s “Soba ni lur ne”, Utada Hikaru’s “Flavor of Life”, Kiseki’s “Greeeen”, Andre Brasseur’s “Early Bird”, and Machiko Soga’s “Oba-Q Ondo” are truly that monstrous in sales, shouldn’t I have at least heard of them? Oh well. I just report the lists. I don’t make these figures up (even if someone else does).

    The Top 1000 Songs of All Time

    This is the granddaddy of song lists. It has been created by compiling hundreds of best-of song lists into this one definitive list. Other song lists have built-in biases, depending on the publication or institution behind the list. Even these lists that solicit public vote will be subjective as they are gathering votes from their own audience!

    The focus in crafting this list was to weed out the individual idiosyncrasies of those individual lists. Average enough lists together and the subjectivity is slowly erased. To this end, every attempt was made to gather lists representative of every possible genre and era. Chart figures, airplay, and sales data were also figured into the equation. The end result is that everyone should find something they like on this list. Of course, there will also be plenty to feed the haters. That’s fine. The goal is to represent as much different music as possible and truly capture those songs that best symbolize the history of recorded music.

    Songs are listed in chronological order; dates in parentheses are for the song’s first chart appearance unless noted otherwise.
