Question: What 1981 song was recently named the “biggest song of all time?”

Answer: Journey – “Don’t Stop Believin’”: As of January 2024, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) quietly certified Journey’s 1981 single “Don’t Stop Believin’” as 18 times platinum. This means the song has sold a certified equivalent of 18 million units, via both physical copies and digital streaming, across its 42-year history. And, mind you, this is a United States ranking – meaning that the worldwide sales are even greater. Thus, Forbes Magazine has officially given “Don’t Stop Believin’” the title of the Biggest Song Of All Time.
