Re: Fun with Playlists and Play Counts

Slick
I bought a new laptop last summer, so this is the play counts from 1 year. A total of 26,040 songs. I am listing all that had at least 100 plays:


Diane, I call bullshit. 333 songs at an underestimated average of even 120 plays...

= 40,000 plays/year
= 100+ plays per day

1.3% of the library representing this many plays?

I. don't. think. so.

I see your point, so let me put this into context. For the past year I've been working out of my home office with the iPod or computer hooked into the stereo for 8-10 hours a day 3-5 days a week. Plus my car and when I exercise. My iTunes gets alot of usage with a ton of playlists depending on what I feel like listening to that day.

Re: Fun with Playlists and Play Counts

Slick


Jack Johnson - Flake (181)
Prince - Raspberry Beret (125)


Great list! "Flake" is awesome! And I love Raspberry Beret...

Saw you had several Belinda Carlisle songs...ever listen to "Summer Rain"?

Re: Fun with Playlists and Play Counts

A shameless way to refresh my unpopular thread!

What obscure song is currently tied for most played track on my iTunes with Big Star's Feel.



Raveonettes "Twilight"

You like this song? It seems to borrow some sounds from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and the 00s all in one song.
