Robin Thicke's insufferable "Blurred Lines" is is a certified hit and is the most streamed track via Spotify in the US and the UK. I'm going to quickly move past that because I'm shocked, mortified, and dying of laughter that Miley Cyrus checks in at #2 with "We Can't Stop." I thought for sure the recycled Britney Spears thing would have her relegated to TMZ only... until she wound up on some B-list reality show. I still suspect that's where she ends up and I hope that's as bad as it gets for her, provided she stops recording. I'm not unreasonable. So why are you people listening to her? The remainder of the US list is devoted to Daft Punk, Bruno Mars, and the knuckehead duo of Macklemore & Lewis. 

The UK list isn't much more interesting with the exception being that some segment of the British pop audience is still listening to the overhyped Arctic Monkeys. Don't misunderstand me, kids: I like the Monkeys. They're good. They had the (mis)fortune of having a preposterously overhyped album. It paid the bills but no one was ever going to live up to that. Ever. Still, they continue to make those records and good on them for it.
