The music of Dolly Parton is centre stage in London's West End as new musical 9 To 5 based on the Queen of Country's signature songs has opened in the capital.
Dolly now joins the likes of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Tina Turner to have a musical based around her iconic classics, connecting her 50 years of hits with a new generation of music lovers.
With a back catalogue as dazzling as the rhinestones on her cowboy boots, we look back at the songs that have connected most in the modern streaming era. Before we reveal Dolly Parton's Top 20 most streamed songs in the UK, some highlights:
9 To 5
It should come as no surprise that the song Dolly's musical is named after is her most played song in the UK, but it may surprise you to know that the song has never reached the Official Singles Chart Top 40. #JusticeForDolly
9 To 5 has been streamed 33.4 million times in the UK since 2014 when Official Charts Company tracking began. Streaming royalties - what a way to make a livin'.
Jolene is Dolly's joint-highest charting single in the UK, peaking at Number 7 in 1974. Following her Glastonbury Legends slot performance in 2014, the song returned to the Top 100 to Number 52. Overall, Dolly's plea to the woman who caught the attention of her man has achieved 29.5 million listens.
Islands In The Stream
Rounding out the Top 3 is Islands in the Stream, Dolly's legendary duet with fellow country icon Kenny Rogers. It was tough paddling up the Official Chart stream for the duo back in 1983, where the song dropped anchor at Number 7.
A cover of the song has since gone to Number 1 on the Top 40; a reworked version for Comic Relief in 2009 saw Sir Tom Jones team up with Robin Gibb and actors Rob Brydon and Ruth Jones from the sitcom Gavin & Stacey.
