Music identification service Shazam has just released a list of the most-commonly requested songs by Australians in 2013. In other words: these are the songs which we hear incessantly but don't find quite distinctive enough to remember in their own right.

Here's the full list, which covers the calendar year to date:
- Passenger, "Let Her Go"
- Avicii, "Wake Me Up"
- Robin Thicke, "Blurred Lines"
- Lorde, "Royals"
- Bastille, "Pompeii"
- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, "Can't Hold Us"
- OneRepublic, "Counting Stars"
- Pink, "Just Give Me a Reason"
- Vance Joy, "Riptide"
- Naughty Boy, "La La La"
If you can accurately identify all these songs, chances are good you'll be able to impress your friends by identifying songs faster than Shazam (or, indeed, SoundHound).
