I have a problem with Wooden Heart, which has 2,985,944 streams from 30 # 1 hits, but 1,690,023 from G.I Blues. I think the answer is that RCA / SONY wants to be able to update 30 # 1 hits to 7 platinum (7,000,000) copies.

Are you suggesting they are fiddling the figures ?

Should I add the two figures together for my listing ?

I do not understand the word fiddling means it falsifies them. ?? Fake up???

OK, I understand. No, I don't think Spotify would agree to it, they have too much to lose on it. Their reputation would be damaged, not good for their business. I think so many people listened to the song from 30 # 1 hits and less from G.I Blues.

The two figures should be added together then ?

The full listing of 589 songs, what’s the total number streamed if you add all the streamed totals of every song together?

What year did Elvis’ music become available on Spotify to be streamed?

They are the same master recording, IMHO they should be taken together, it doesn’t matter what album they were on.

The above action has given Wooden Heart a huge leap up the listing !

It rises from No.113 to No.62 & shares some classy company:

The totals:

NB. Any 'duets' from 'Viva Elvis' appear in the 'duets' figure.


Elvis has smashed through the 1.9 billion mark !

i wonder what his most streamed original album would be, not counting compilations? Is there an easy way to tell?
