Most Downloaded Song of all Time?

Have you ever wondered what the most downloaded track of all time is? There are so many songs that would easily seem like great guesses - The Beatles perhaps, Rolling Stones maybe? Not even close.

For legal music downloads, the most downloaded song of all time, and the first song to break the 2 million download mark, is Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing'.

Perhaps the ultimate power ballad of love, loss and redemption, Journey's hit song originally only topped the charts at number 8 but has seen a huge resurgence in recent years. Released in 1981 it's modern popularity is owed mostly to TV. It has featured on popular TV shows such as Laguna Beach, and much, much more famously on the final episode of The Sopranos.

Truth be told, after the song featured on that episode of The Sopranos, iTunes sales increased by over 428% in just 3 days.

So sit back and listen....
