Top Ten Hit Songs of the 2010s by Austrian Artists

Martin_Canine
The 2010s have brought several songs by Austrian artists to national fame. Some of them even had an impact on other European countries, most notably other German language territories. However, a majority was most successful in Austria.

It is not possible to define what's a hit song. Sometimes, songs that receive massive airplay, have millions of views on YouTube and are known by everyone aren't even as high on the charts, probably because the albums they are on sell better than the single, or because people hear it everywhere anyway. Nevertheless, I decided to include songs that were in the top ten of at least one country on my initial version of the list. You can feel free to interpret that differently and add songs that you feel are hits for other reasons.

The songs should be ranked by your personal opinion on the song, not its relevance or commercial success.

The Top Ten

1 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

I love this song. Its energy, Rhythm, Lyrics, all of them are Perfect

Chart positions:

Austria: 1 (with platinum certificate)
Switzerland: 2
Netherlands: 3
Germany: 5
Denmark: 6
Spain: 8
Belgium: 8
Ireland: 10
UK: 17
Sweden: 27
France: 39

In 2014, the anthemic Eurovision-winning song by the drag queen sparked a massive boost in fight for LGBT equality, but also for equality, liberal views and tolerance in general in Austria, and Conchita Wurst was named person of the year by the Austrian press and became the nation's biggest star of her generation. Currently, her second album is in post-production. - Martin_Canine

2 Ham kummst - Seiler und Speer

Chart positions:
Austria: 1
Germany: 45

With over 30 million views on YouTube, this is one of the really big German language hits of the decade (although many don't understand the Viennese dialect), and one of the songs of the 2010s that still receive the most airplay on Austrian radio stations (it's from 2014). It will most likely be one of the most decade defining songs from the view of Austrians. - Martin_Canine
