"Alexa, what's that song?"

We all know that feeling. You've got a tune in your head and a few patchy lyrics, but can't for the life of you remember the artist or the name.

For many, this is where Amazon's Alexa bot comes in the most useful. With just a quick query through one of the Alexa devices, you can get rid of that nagging feeling (or win that argument).

In fact, it's such a comment occurrence that Amazon have recently released a list of the song lyrics that are the most frequently asked about through their Alexa systems, and the results might surprise you:

1. “...I can make your hands clap” — Fitz and the Tantrums, "HandClap"
2. "...head out on the highway" — Steppenwolf, "Born To Be Wild"
3. “...I got this feeling inside my bones” — Justin Timberlake, "Can't Stop the Feeling!"
4. “...I came in like a wrecking ball” — Miley Cyrus, "Wrecking Ball"
5. “...true love won't desert you” — Journey, "Separate Ways”
6. “...once, I was seven years old” — Lukas Graham, "7 Years”
7. “...I'm a rebel just for kicks” — Portugal. The Man, "Feel It Still”
8."...swish swish bish" — Katy Perry, "Swish Swish"
9. “...I got sunshine in my pocket” — Justin Timberlake, "Can't Stop the Feeling!"
10. “...standing in the hall of fame” — The Script feat., "Hall of Fame”

"The most requested lyrics don't always correspond with the title or chorus of each song," the company noted in a release, explaining the double appearance of a Justin Timberlake song on its list.

A real mix of songs from a range of eras, these are the songs that have confounded Alexa owners the most.
