    This Week's Signature Songs, State By State

    Here are the songs that defined America from Sept. 30 to Oct. 6, presented by BuzzFeed and Spotify. A state’s “signature song” is not its most popular, but its most distinctive — that is to say, the one that residents of that state streamed proportionally the most as compared with the U.S. as a whole.

    For the week ending Oct. 6, Carrie Underwood surged in Oklahoma with her spiritual new power ballad "Something In The Water," Magic! continued its 5-week grip on Nevada, solo Nick Jonas made Maryland "Jealous," and Massachusetts discovered the curly-haired Aussie balladeer Vance Joy. Next Thursday, more distinctive songs from BuzzFeed and Spotify.
