New York's Favorite Songs of 2014
TouchTunes provide over 500 e-jukeboxes to venues throughout New York City. The Wall Street Journal has been poring over the 2014 data captured by those jukeboxes to find out who are the most popular bands and which are the most frequently played songs in New York's bars and clubs.
A Musical Map of New York City labels each zip-code area in the city by the most popular artist on TouchTunes jukeboxes in the neighborhood. A button in the top right-hand corner of the map allows you to switch the labels to show the most played song in each zip-code. If you mouse-over the map labels you can also discover the top 10 artists and the top ten songs in the selected neighborhood.
