YouTube TOP-20 CLASSICAL

QUICK SUMMARY

So far, music videos are accounted for the lion share of the YouTube Top-200 list with astronomical popularity ratings in Gigaviews range (yes, Giga prefix stands for Billion!). The "Gangnam Style" by PSY has been the absolute champion since the year of inception now closing to 3 Gigaviews. To put into perspective, the mankind spent more than 20k man-years listening to that "Gangnam Style".

FIRST IN GIGA-RANGE

Historically, the first video item to break the gigaview mark was "Baby" by Justing Bieber. Relevant to mention, that this items has the lowest 'likability' (42% based on Like/Dislike ratio) in this top-league.

SIC TRANSIT...

Another interesting observation: neither Madonna, nor Michael Jackson made it to this top list (not even close). Well, sic transit gloria mundi, indeed...

BEYOND MUSIC VIDS

Going beyond the music videos genre, in the general video category the absolute leader is Russian speaking short animated film "Masha and The Bear" accounted for astronomical 1.8+ gigaviews with most cumulative vie time exceeding 24k years.

Classical music is mostly represented by the titans of the past: Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven (crossing the important 100 Megaviews milestone).


Cumulative View Time

As of now, mankind spent more than 21 thousand man-years listening to 'Gangnam Style' by PSY (the leader in views count category). But the Russian-made animation "Masha and The Bear" is the one that mankind time spent most time watching - more than 24 kilo-years cumulatively. Just amazing!
