I wonder which minor mode/scale is more commonly used in minor key songs.

    Might well be genre biased. – Tim Jan 15 at 16:59

    You don’t mention a genre so that makes this question way too broad and will likely be closed. Unless someone were to analyze millions of pieces of music in hundreds of styles there is no accurate answer to this question. If you are asking from a composer’s standpoint, use whichever type of scale fits the sound and mood you are going for. For that matter there’s nothing preventing you from using more than one scale in a piece. – John Belzaguy Jan 15 at 18:14

    The OP mentioned "minor key". Key not minor mode, minor-ish. In that case there is no "minor scale" in minor key music. It's just another re-wording of the many questions mixing up various minor scales and minor key harmony. – Michael Curtis Jan 15 at 22:13
