Pete's Log: iTunes Top 25 (2007)

Entry #1501, Wed, August 08, 2007, 00:07 CEST (Music)
(posted when I was 29 years old.)

I did it in 2002 and again in 2006. Perhaps it'll become an annual tradition. Here are my top 25 most played songs in iTunes:

  1. Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son (57)
  2. Seeed - Aufstehn! (Featuring Cee-Lo Green) (49)
  3. Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2 (46)
  4. Reggaetones - Lo Que Paso Paso (42)
  5. Tears for Fears - Head Over Heels (42)
  6. Operation Ivy - Sound System (41)
  7. RENT Soundtrack - Finale B (37)
  8. The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go? (36)
  9. Sponge - Molly (Sixteen Candles) (36)
  10. Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag (36)
  11. Bloodhound Gang - Fire Water Burn (35)
  12. Alizee - J'en ai marre (34)
  13. Weezer - Island In The Sun (34)
  14. Steve Miller Band - The Joker (33)
  15. Sugar Ray - Abracadabra (33)
  16. MEST - Fucked Up Kid (32)
  17. Blink-182 - The Rock Show (31)
  18. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary (31)
  19. Green Day - American Idiot (31)
  20. Incubus - Drive (30)
  21. Orgy - Blue Monday (30)
  22. A Tribe Called Quest - Steve Biko (Stir It Up) (29)
  23. Love Spit Love - How Soon Is Now (29)
  24. Arthur Kay's Originals - Play My Record (28)
  25. Drop Kick Murphys - Caught In A Jar (28)

It's apparent that this past year I've been a bit addicted to pop music.

These counts are cumulative, so the play count is the number of times I've listened to the song since 2002. Sadly, I don't think there's a way to get a delta over the past year. I just exported my song list, though, so I will be able to get deltas next year.

What most amazes me is that the most-played song has only been played 57 times. But I do now have 3080 songs, or 7 days, 4 hours, 56 minutes and 32 seconds worth of music. So I guess it's hard to listen to any one song that often. And also, prior to moving to Munich, I did much of my music listening in my car, off CDs, which did not add to the playcount. Now I pretty much only listen to my music through iTunes or my iPod...

In the past year, I've bought 134 songs through iTunes, and acquired another couple dozen through other means. Here's a few of my favorites of what I got in the past year, in case you're looking for something "new":

  • Die Höhner - Viva Colonia
  • Sportfreunde Stiller - '54, '74, '90, 2010
  • Arctic Monkeys - From the Ritz to the Rubble
  • The Breeders - Saints
  • Ted Leo + Pharmacists - Me and Mia
  • The Rakes - Strasbourg
  • Gnarls Barkley - Crazy
  • Juanes - La Camisa Negra
  • The Killers - Somebody Told Me
  • Massive Attack - Angel
  • Texas Lightning - No No Never
  • Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancing
  • Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby
  • Mims - This Is Why I'm Hot
  • Wir Sind Helden - Nur Ein Wort
  • Aswefall - Between Us

P.S. iTunes crashes consistently when I try to create a smart playlist with a "Date Added" "is after" criteria. I ought to upgrade my iTunes. But first I need to upgrade my OS X...

Would music be a better supported subject in schools if we did not have music available on demand. I remember marching bands in parades, concerts by community bands in the park. Conversations or time to listen to the world on walks or in the car. Just wondering.

my top 25 list can beat up your top 25 list. I even have a screencap for proof:
