Listmania

Posted by Nicholas Beaudrot of Electoral Math

Though I've missed out on the Meme of Seven (and the Meme of Four), I can still provide a bit of end-of-the-year frivolity. The start of the new year was as good a time as any to wipe out ratings and playcounts in iTunes. But before I eliminated them, I put together a highly embarrassing list of the 50 most played songs in the collection.

Let the mocking begin ...

Comments

Here I'll list my top 8:

1 Johnny Be Fair (Julia Ecklar)
2 Pitseleh (Elliott Smith)
3 Holland, 1945 (Neutral Milk Hotel)
4 Barrett's Privateers (Julia Ecklar)
5 Waltz #2 (Elliott Smith)
6 Sayonara (Pogues)
7 Stars and Sons (Broken Social Scene)
8 The Wake of the Medusa (Pogues)

(After that comes a bunch of stuff that mainly gets played because it's alphabetically downstream from these songs.)

I was going to give you shit, and then I get all the way down to the bottom, and you've got Mr. Cheeks. Not bad. RIP Freaky Tah!

Carl: that's sarcasm, right? I have a hard time telling ...

I am so unhip I didn't recognize most of Nicholas' groups. My top rated songs, actually groups/albums, each with 1-3 songs merged together

bettie serveert/private suit
ani difranco/little plastic castle
bob dylan/blonde on blonde
tim buckley/goodbye & hello
druid/fluid druid...obscure prog
slowdive/souvlaki
spring/st...obscure prog
the fall/nation's saving grace
ian hunter/st
dakota suite/signal hill
clem snide/favorite music
talking heads/building & food
x/los angeles
heavenly/decline and fall
red house painters/retrospective

Obviously I tend toward classical

You play "Communist Daughter" that much, pluripotentate? I see it as the weakest track on that album.

Of course, Aeroplane happens to be my favorite album of all time, so it's not like I'm dissing.

Those aren't embarassing, MY list is embarassing. Since most of my collection is still vinyl-based and a good chunk of CDs haven't yet been fed in to the system, my itunes top ten ends up looking like this:

M.Ward - Hi-Fi
The Shins - Kissing the Lipless
A.C. Newman - The Cloud Prayer
Iron & Wine - Naked as We Came
Bonnie "Prince" Billie - A Minor Place
The New Pornographers - The Laws have Changed
Rogue Wave - Love's Lost Guarantee
Andre Bird - Masterfade
The Decembrists - 16 Military Wives
Richard Davies - Cantina

What am I, in high school?!

Posted by: shingles | Jan 2, 2006 10:25:04 AM

Shingles: you may not be in high school, but based on that list you're definitely not older than thirty. Which, I think, contradicts the record player statement.

"but based on that list you're definitely not older than thirty"

Ya know, as I was disturbed by MY's et al listening habits, with exceptions like Beyerstein noted, I was trying to remember my own youth, way way back there.
In my late teens/early twenties it was mostly stuff out in the last month to 5 years old max. It wasn't til my 30's that I started exploring other genres and eras.

Posted by: bob mcmanus | Jan 2, 2006 2:19:32 PM

Actually Nicholas, I'm 37.

Sad, but true.

Posted by: shingles | Jan 2, 2006 8:24:46 PM

Shingles: right, I figured you were older, I was just saying that based on your list, one would think you were an yippie urban gentrifier.
