Runner Up (not included on Top 20 list): Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke; various Julie Ann San Jose singles such as I’ll Be There, Bakit Ngayon, and For Everything on some variety FM radio stations such as Barangay LS and Energy FM (due to a shorter play count on regular airing in spite of numerous request); various songs exclusively aired on DWRR-FM “MOR” such as Oha! (Kaya Mo Ba ‘To) by Enrique Gil; Nasa Iyo Na Ang Lahat by Daniel Padilla (due to a shorter play count on regular airing in spite of numerous request); various foreign pop songs featured only on pop music FM radio stations.
Sources: My own partial fabricated results closely based on recent results of various FM radio program specials from Energy FM, Pinas FM, Monster Radio RX, RT FM, Magic FM, Home Radio, and DWRR FM. FM Radio stations such as Big Radio, Win Radio, Love Radio, YES FM, iFM, Barangay LS, and Star FM may not have FM radio program specials of year-end countdown.
