On a whim I took a look at the button on our iTunes console that said “Top 25 Most Played” just to see what was there. We’ve been using iTunes for a couple years now and this combines the statistics from what’s played on our iPods plus what is played through the console itself. I found this list to be fascinating as a lesson about what where our key musical interests lie these days. Here’s the top 25 (in terms of how many times these songs have been played, it ranges from 65 for the top song down to 27 for the bottom).
