Just a few years ago, Jason Derulo stopped by our offices to celebrate receiving the 10 billionth thumb on Pandora. Today, I am proud to share that we have passed 50 billion thumbs. 50 billion. That’s roughly seven thumbs for every person on Earth.

As milestones go, this one is particularly meaningful. Our entire mission is to give listeners the ability to personalize their experience. Thumbs give each listener the power to make Pandora personal to them. Every thumb up and thumb down has not only made your stations better, but helped us make better song choices for every listener. This is a serious group effort – so, thanks!

As you can imagine, it took a lot of songs to hit 50 billion thumbs. While we can’t share every single one, we did want to highlight some of the more momentous thumb recipients along the way.

    you have what I wished for before the internet was ever available. now people can pick the kinds of music that we cherished in our growing years of those lessons in life. music is an important part of nearly every being on this planet in one form or another. I adore my hours on the net doing research on my novels all the while listening to what I played on the stage for over 40 years. I want to thank you for having this great option and the choices are magnificent. many happy days come back to me with each song, each artist and each word or the songs we each can relate to. these songs are the highlight of my daily hours. from the heart, harmonica player from 1973-2015. planning on returning to the stage. my passion back to happiest days past by.

    Wow a lot of great songs thumbs up, I like all the favorite picked but I would not have chosen them as the best of all times. It is very difficult to choose one as the best there are so many wonderful songs, comedians, and all.
