You can’t walk through the mall, turn on a radio or even escape your own thoughts without hearing one of these catchy tunes. The top 25 best-selling singles of 2011, as tallied by Chart Watch, are songs we’ve had on “repeat” all year.

Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” was the winner overall with over 5.5 million copies sold. “Party Rock Anthem” from LMFAO and “E.T.” by Katy Perry ranked in the second and third slots, and sold about 4.8 million copies each. “Give Me Everything” by Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo, and “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera rounded out the top five, each with about 3.7 million copies sold.

“Fuck You” by Cee Lo Green, “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People, “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga, “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj, and another Adele song, “Someone Like You” completed the top 10.
