Shazam has released its list of 100 most searched songs of all time, with Tones and I's Dance Monkey taking the top spot.

The app, owned by Apple Inc, can identify a song when you share a sample clip.

"This new playlist is the Top 100 most Shazamed songs of all time! Tones and I's powerhouse pop single 'Dance Monkey' tops the all-time list, with over 36.6 million Shazams since its release in May 2019, followed by Lilly Wood & The Prick & Robin Schulz's 'Prayer In C (Robin Schulz Radio Edit)' and Passenger's 'Let Her Go' closing the top 3," a note on the Apple Music website reads.

Australian artist Tones and I understands the valuable role Shazam played in the success of her track.

"I didn't have a following when I released Dance Monkey, but [Shazam] gave me the opportunity to reach more people and elevate my fanbase, which has all led to creating a career for myself," she said in a statement, according to the BBC.

Other songs in the top 10 include Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, Sia's Cheap Thrills, and Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know
