AMI chart shows what’s hot in juke box hire
This year, AMI Entertainment’s 2014 Jukebox Year-End Music Charts have provided direct insight into what was played most over the past 12 months.
It’s an American chart, but with the US and UK charts closely following each other, it’s still worth a look for British venues interested in juke box hire.
For instance, the hugely popular Pharrell Williams track Happy notched up nearly 600,000 plays in the US – enough for four years of continuous airplay.
Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass was another popular option with American jukebox users, while southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd racked up an astonishing number of plays – nearly seven million, or almost 40 years’ worth of playing time.
On video jukeboxes, the controversial Robin Thicke track Blurred Lines was most popular, particularly in its uncensored adult-only form, while again Pharrell’s Happy gave a strong showing.
