YouTube is still a popular place to go to listen to music, as well as watch the official videos

YouTube is celebrating its tenth birthday this weekend. Created by three former PayPal colleagues, YouTube has become more than just a social website. It has created celebrities, humiliated public figures, reminded us of 1980’s TV intros, been used as a means of propaganda, and, inevitably, it has been a potent tool of war.

But through all this, it seems that YouTube has been used primarily to watch music videos. As part of a five-part series, we here at Guides have listed the 50 most-watched music videos over the last 10 years.
