Re: Most Popular Songs of AM Top Songs of the Decades (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s) (according to Spotify)

I can see why not comparing the number of streams would be useful for comparing songs from the last decade, but I feel like streams are more indicative of popularity for older songs (and would be less susceptible to fluke popularity spikes from appearances in movies and whatnot).
