One of Reid's favorite things to do is to find youtube videos of songs he loves and keep track of the views...he's always so excited to find ones 'in the billions'. So I can tell you two although I have no idea which dates they correspond to. Uptown Funk, Marc Ronson ft Bruno Mars and Shake It Off, Taylor Swift. He's at school but I bet he could tell you the others.

Ilyssa - Well, this is clearly the perfect homework assignment for Reid! So far, you're 2 for 2.

Uptown Funk is #9 while Shake It Off is #6.

He (we) also found Katy Perry Roar and Dark Horse. And a friend directed us to Gangnam Style. That's all we've got so far...:)

He just added Baby by Justin Bieber.

Sean said...

Nicely done! Gangham Style is #1 while Baby is #2. Katy Perry's Dark Horse is #4 and Roar is #5.

Might as well finish it off.

#3 Taylor Swift's Blank Space
#8 Bailando by Enrique Iglesias
#9 All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor

No idea how #8 & #9 have 1 billion views.
