Hanson, Tay: geeks rock, Taylor Hanson

iTunes stats

Yesterday, out of curiosity, I checked out my iTunes "Top 25 Most Played" list and found it interesting. Mind you, these are only the number of times I've played these songs since I got iTunes (early this year, I think). And I'm going to post the list because it interests me, even if it reveals many of my geekinesses:

"Penny and Me" (Hanson, Underneath) -- 115 plays
"Drops of Jupiter" (Train, Drops of Jupiter) -- 55 plays
"White Flag" (Dido, Life For Rent) -- 54 plays
"Wherever You Will Go" (The Calling, Camino Palmero) -- 35
"Straight To ... Number One" (Touch and Go, Queer As Folk Soundtrack) -- 26
"A Long December" (Counting Crows, Recovering The Satelites) -- 24
"It's the End of the World As We Know It" (R.E.M., Document) -- 23
"Wo Qui Non Coin" (Aoi Tada & The Seatbelts, Cowboy Bebop Soundtrack: Blue) -- 22
"Iris" (The Goo Goo Dolls, Dizzy Up the Girl) -- 22
"Landslide" (Dixie Chicks, Home) -- 20
"Inside Out" (Eve 6, Eve 6) -- 20
"Trapped By Love" (Manu Chao, personalized CD by webmacher) -- 20
"Speed Racer Porno Mix" (DJ Keoki, mailed to be my webmacher) -- 19
"I Was Dancing At The Lesbian Bar" (Jonathan Richman, Action Packed) -- 19
"This Love" (Maroon 5, Songs About Jane) -- 19
"Breakfast at Tiffany's" (Deep Blue Something, Home) -- 18
"Losing My Religion" (R.E.M., Out of Time) -- 18
"When It's Over" (Sugar Ray, Sugar Ray) -- 16
"Michelle" (The Beatles, 1962-1966) -- 15
"Tubthumping" (Chumbawamba, Tubthumper) -- 15
"Flying" (James Newton Howard, Peter Pan Sountrack) -- 15

and there are a bunch of others at about the same number of plays:

"La Primavera" (Manu Chao, personalized CD by webmacher) -- 15
"Mi Gustas Tu" (Manu Chao, personalized CD by webmacher) -- 15
"Every Morning" (Sugar Ray, 14:59) -- 15
"Sleepy Maggie" (Ashley MacIsaac, Hi How Are You Today) -- 14
"Call and Answer" (Barenaked Ladies, All Their Greatest Hits) -- 14

and then there are tons with 13 plays.

One of the things that interested me was the number of times I've listened to "Penny and Me," because it's more than twice as much as any other song. I hadn't realized I'd been quite that obsessed with it, and I haven't even listened to it all that recently, and many of the times I listened to it was by watching the video online. I must have gone through quite a while of listening to it on infinite loop. Well, it is a good song.
