...if Billboard was operating under the same formula as it did a decade ago, "Gangnam Style" would have been guaranteed the top spot. At the moment, however, their method of calculating chart points is biased toward radio airplay and "One More Night" was an absolute monster on American radio in the latter half of 2012.

The whole airplay effects chart position thing bugs me. It seems that it allows record companies to rig the list in favour of the brand new singles (even though the album has been out six months or more) they allow "hottest hits" radio stations to include in their playlists.

I don't really think Gotye will have another hit, mostly because I don't think he was ever aiming for one in the first place. If anything, he sounded really pissed dealing with Top 40 radio stations and the lovely "remixes" they made so his song would sound like everything else on the radio.

Gotye accepted an industry award with a speech that included this gem: "Sorry for those people who listen to commercial radio and had to listen to it 50 times a day at their workplace"
