iTunes by the Numbers

Recently saw this done on another blog, thought it’d be interesting to do myself…

Top Five Most Played Songs
(Unfortunately, this is skewed since we recently moved our files from the PC to the Mac, and I couldn’t figure out how to move my 4 years of play data with it. Really, only four or five months of data is showing here, and the wife and I have obviously been wearing the newest Okkervil River album out).

» “Our Life is Not A Movie Or Maybe” – Okkervil River – The Stage Names (22)
» “A Girl in Port” – Okkervil River – The Stage Names (15)
» “You Can’t Hold the Hand of a Rock and Roll Man” – Okkervil River – The Stage Names (15)
» “Unless It’s Kicks” – Okkervil River – The Stage Names (14)
» “A Hold to Take Hold of the Scene” – Okkervil River – The Stage Names (12)

Search for the following words. How many songs show up?
» Sex: 72
» Death: 85
» Love: 716

First five songs that come up on Party Shuffle
» “Greatdayindamorning’/Booty” – D’Angelo – Voodoo

» “K Hole” – Silver Jews – Tanglewood Numbers

One thought on “iTunes by the Numbers”

  1. I admit to contributing to the Okkervil River skewing.

    If we had all of our old data, the top five slots would probably be at least 60% Neko.
