A post on LifeHacker mentioned that Last.fm has released their lists of the most listened-to songs of 2008. Since their service “scrobbles” (logs) everything that their users listen to, they have a pretty massive data-set. They are UK-based, so there is quite a bit of a UK bias in the results, but they are still interesting nonetheless.
There were two somewhat-annoying things about the lists: 1) each entry is on a different page, so you have to go to 30 pages to see all of the results 2) no links to lyrics!
So we’ve taken the liberty of compiling them for you into a nice concise list of links to the lyrics-pages:
