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.

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"?

The reason they get so many plays is because I have them in a playlist that I listen to every day before I go to school.
