40 Years Later: Spotify Remembers Elvis Presley

August 17, 2017 Apps No Comments Email Email

August 16th marks the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. To commemorate the legacy the King of Rock N’ Roll left behind, Spotify has taken a look at the musical impact he continues to have today.

News of Elvis’s passing shocked the world in 1977, but 40 years later, listeners across the globe continue to stream the icon’s biggest hits, including ‘Jailhouse Rock’, ‘Hound Dog’ and ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’.

Elvis’s catalog of songs has been streamed well over a billion times, the equivalent of almost 4000 years of streaming. The most streamed Elvis song globally is ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’, which has been streamed more than 90m times. ‘Suspicious Minds’ is at number 2 with 69m streams worldwide, and ‘Jailhouse Rock’ rounds out the global top 3 with 68m streams. In Hong Kong, the most streamed Elvis song is also ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’, followed by ‘Blue Christmas’ and ‘Suspicious Minds’.

Surprisingly, Elvis’s home country of the US doesn’t have the biggest share of Elvis listening within a country. In fact, Sweden has the highest concentration of Elvis listening, followed by the United Kingdom, Chile, Iceland and the Netherlands.

Three out of the top five cities with the largest share of Elvis listening come from the United Kingdom, with Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham coming in at number one, three and five, respectively. Santiago, Chile takes the number two spot, and Göteborg, Sweden appears a number four.
