Amazon has released a new chart of the top singles requested by forgetful music fans. Gathering data from users who ask the voice-assistant device, “Alexa, play the song that goes…,” the company has compiled a list of the Top 50 Alexa Lyrics. The top slot on the list is held by a pop hit currently enjoying radio play: Fitz and the Tantrums’ “Handclap,” designated by the lyrics users often search for: “I can make your hands clap.”

The list also includes much older hits like Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild” (“head out on the highway”) and songs with lesser-known titles like The Who’s “Baba O’Reilly” (“teenage wasteland”). The top 10 lyric requests in the U.S. are listed below (click on link for full list):
