Pointless Statistics

One of the consequences of ripping all my music to MP3 and playing it in winamp is that winamp keeps track of each play of each song, and can generate and export a list of most played songs. I happened to glance over this list today, and am not entirely sure whether I should be embarressed or just confused. This is over the last 18 months or so since I last reinstalled winamp, every song played more than 10 times (playcount in brackets):

Green Day – Holiday (21)
Duran Duran – what happends tomorrow (21)
Bon Jovi – Blaze of Glory (20)
Coldplay – White Shadows (19)
Green Day – Boulevard Of Broken Dreams (18)
REM – Aftermath (17)
Bebel Gilberto – Aganjú (17)
Snow Patrol – Run (17)
Green Day – American Idiot (16)
The Rasmus – In The Shadows (14)
U2 – City Of Blinding Lights (13)
Simply Red – Fairground (13)
The Killers – Somebody Told Me (13)
Foo Fighters – DOA (13)
Pulp – Common People (13)China Crisis – Wishful thinking (13)
Blind Melon – No Rain (13)
The Killers – Midnight Show (12)
The Killers – Mr Brightside (12)
Bon Jovi – In These Arms (12)
Franz Ferdinand – This Boy (12)
Alice Cooper – Poison (12)
Oasis – Little By Llittle (12)
The Wonder Stuff – The Size of a Cow (11)
Tears for Fears – Mad World (11
Franz Ferdinand – The Fallen (11)
Robbie Williams – Let Love Be Your Energy (11)
The Farm – All Together Now-Original Version (11)
Queen – Living on My Own (Freddie Mercury) (11)
INXS – Beautiful Girl (11)
Keane – Somewhere Only We Know (11)
Electric Light Orchestra – Hold On Tight (11)
Bellamy Brothers – Let Your Love Flow (11)

(33 songs)

I did once try to compile a list of my top 20 or so favourite songs, but gave up. I don’t think, though, that I’d include any of the above songs. So maybe I don’t know myself as well as I thought?

Anyway, I’m blogging this to have something to refer people to next time I find myself unable to give a succint answer to the question “what sort of music do you listen to?”.

A Week in Music

I'm stealing this idea from Prole Art Threat, because it's fun. No, really, it is fun.

A week in music:

The Bangles – Manic Monday
The Boomtown Rats – I Don't Like Mondays
The Mamas and the Papas – Monday Monday
New Order – Blue Monday

Melanie – Ruby Tuesday
Yazoo – Tuesday
(God knows why I've got some of these songs on the computer – I've never once listened to them)

Tori Amos – Wednesday
Elvis Costello And The Attractions – Wednesday Week
Simon and Garfunkel – Wednesday morning 3 AM
(There must be better ones than this, but I can't find any…)

I don't have any for Thursday – so I cheated and googled it. That produced:
The icicle works – Sweet thursday

The Cure – It's Friday I'm in Love

Bon Jovi – Someday I'll be Saturday Night
The Drifters – Saturday night at the movies
Kaiser Chiefs – Saturday Night
Whigfield – Saturday Night

Blondie – Sunday Girl
U2 – Sunday Bloody Sunday
The Small Faces – Lazy Sunday

Actually Sunday is a popular day. The full list, including all the album tracks, also has:

The Bolshoi – Sunday Morning
The Dude – Sunday 3AM
Elvis Costello And The Attractions – Sunday's Best
Etta James – A Sunday Kind of Love
The Flaming Lips – One Million Billionth of a Millisecond on a Sunday Morning
The Libertines – Lazy Sunday
Maroon 5 – Sunday Morning
Moby – Sunday(The Day Before My Birthday)
Oasis – Sunday Morning Call
Orchestral Manoeuvers In The Dark – Sunday Morning
Paul Simon – Sunday Afternoon
Scorpions – Loving You Sunday Morning
The Shirelles – I Met Him on a Sunday
Stereophonics – Watch Them Fly Sundays
The Velvet Underground – Sunday Morning
