9 Gangnam Style; Baby Shark; Macarena; YMCA; Saturday Night? Best-selling dance routine music one hit wonders? Macarena is - I found that out the other day on Sporcle.

10 Karolinska Institute; Swedish Academy; Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences? These are the Swedish institutions that award the Nobel Prizes, apart from the Peace Prize which is awarded by the Norwegian Storting.
