This is pretty much semi-scientific at best, but has anyone given much thought to what the most popular CD songs are?

In my head, they were always stuff like Better, Street of Dreams, CD itself, and Madagascar (having been played at the VMAs), plus maybe TWAT, being probably the most Illusion-esque track of the album.

I'm not much of a streaming service guy when it comes to music (no Amazon Music or Spotify here), but on YT I noticed This I Love has 11M views and Better 7.5M for the audio tracks. Given there's no video for those songs and TIL was never a single, I was kind of surprised. For those of you on Spotify, are the results similar? Are guns even on Amazon Music? I'm assuming they are, but I've never used it...

Anyway I've seen TIL dragged by a number of "old" fans, the usual anti-ballad crowd but I guess the general public was more open to it.

This I Love is the most streamed on Spotify. Over 65 million. Better has over 34 million. The title track has over 29 million.

Wow
Had no idea that Spotify would have that much more traffic than YouTube.
Seems like TIL is the clear winner

It's the biggest music streaming service.

It is interesting how that track is the most streamed on Spotify, Youtube. Like you said, there was no video, nor was it a single.

So, how did people find it....

This I Love is maybe one of the most beautiful tracks ever released under the GNR banner.
My wife loves it, my kids love it. I have other songs on CD I like better,!but I get why TIL gets so many plays.

I think the success of This I Love is due to word of mouth.
at the time of the release of CD I remember it's the one song I shared with people who weren't specially GNR fans and they loved it.

there is something universal about it and no one can deny its emotional charge

Can you provide the songs ranked by # of streams/listens--if it is not too much trouble?  I don't use Spotify.  My favorite is Sorry.
