Meme: Top Ten iTunes most played

I don’t think I’ve done a meme on here before, but I just saw a good one over at Whatever and thought that I would be interested in the results, so maybe you are too.

So here is the top ten tracks in my iTunes library by play count (how many times they have been played on either iTunes or my iPod). Like John Scalzi, I have included only the most played track from each album to remove the effect of playing the whole album a lot:

  1. All Star, Smashmouth – Shrek Soundtrack
  2. The Right Place, Eddi Reader – Eddi Reader
  3. The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feeling Groovy), Simon & Garfunkel – Greatest Hits
  4. Big Time Sensuality, Bjork – Debut
  5. Caramel, Suzanne Vega – Greatest Hits, but I heard it first on the soundtrack to The Truth about Cats and Dogs
  6. Layla, Eric Clapton – Unplugged
  7. Respect, Aretha Franklin – First Lady of Soul
  8. One Week, Barenaked Ladies – Stunt
  9. Weather With You, Crowded House – Woodface
  10. Stan, Eminem – Marshall Mathers LP

Most of those I identify as upbeat songs that I play to get me in a good mood – especially All Star. They are also all songs that have featured in my CD collection for quite a long while – but I suppose that is inevitable when you count since I started using iTunes (circa 2003). If only you could count the most played tracks this year…

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
