My most played songs

Here is a combined list of my most played 21 songs from both my home PC/iPod, and work PC.

I’ve listed 21 (rather than 20) because I’m going to assume the top one is some kind of computer glitch, since there’s no way I’ve listened to that song more than a couple of times since putting it into iTunes…

Waiting for the Great Leap Forwards Billy Bragg 23
July Ocean Colour Scene 14
Black Betty (iTunes Originals Version) Spiderbait 14
Mechanical Wonder Ocean Colour Scene 12
Real Love The Beatles 11
I just need myself Ocean Colour Scene 11
The Circle Ocean Colour Scene 11
Second hand car Ocean Colour Scene 9

Honey Moby 8
The Oldest Story In The Book Paul Kelly 8
Already Gone Powderfinger 8
Don’t Wanna Be Left Out Powderfinger 8
White Trash Professor Ratbaggy 8
Exodus Bob Marley and the Wailers 7
5/4 Gorillaz 7
New Mistake Jellyfish 7
One For The Road Ocean Colour Scene 7
Good-Day Ray Powderfinger 7
Decent cup of coffee Weddings Parties Anything 6

There’s a fair bit of OCS on there, probably because when it’s too noisy in the office, I tend to turn to that to drown things out a bit. “July” in particular is good for out-louding the nearby photocopier/printer thing when it’s going full-pelt.

I might note that when I listen to complete albums around the house, I tend to still get the CD out.

  1. Sometimes I really feel the generation gap.

    ‘make sure your iTunes is synced with your iPod, then sort by Play Count, and do File / Export Song List, which you can export to a text file from which you can chop out the info you want to post.’

    Interesting eclectic list though.

  2. Hi Daniel… this is my first post from Sydney. My wife and I arrived two days ago. It is beautiful. Hope we can go to Melbourne soon… maybe we can meet each other.

  3. What? You are trying to tell us that you HAVEN’T listened to Corduroy 1.8 billion times? At say 3 minutes for the song, it would have taken you (I think) 10,792 years to listen to it that many times.. (Mind you, maths was never my strong suit…).

    That’s why I hate HATE HATE Itunes and now use Winamp… Much better.

  4. Wow… my list would be very similar.

    Billy Bragg is brilliant and Moby, PowderFinger and Gorrilaz make my list of “frequently listened to”.

    No Cure songs though… shame on you!

  5. My list is VERY different even though Daniel and I are the same vintage:

    Mike Oldfield
    George Winston
    Jan Garbarek
    Dead Can Dance
    The Whitlams
    Sting
    R.E.M.
    Sooliman E. Rogie
    Crowded House
    Angelique Kidjo

    The vintage does come through seeing how there’s nothing on the list that has been in the top forty since the early 90’s (except some relatively recent R.E.M. but definitely none of Sting’s stuff since The Soul Cages)
