In honour of the ninth anniversary of the original #TBT (Throwback Thursday), Spotify has crunched the numbers to determine the songs which remind us of our youth the most.

The streaming service reviewed more than 80,000 playlists on the service which contained the words "Throwback Thursday" or "TBT" in their titles, and identified the songs that showed up the most frequently.

The most-streamed track is entirely unsurprising given it's an absolute banger – R Kelly's Ignition. People love it so much in fact, that they've been talking about it on a 12-year long thread.

Other jams in the top 100% I am definitely liable to hijack the iPhone-speaker set-up to stick on at parties include the seminal Ms Jackson by Outkast, Yeah! By Usher and It Wasn't Me by Shaggy.
