    Check your "Top 25 Most Played" playlist.

    Turns out mine is Brendan Benson's "Tiny Spark." I truly never would have guessed that. :idea: Great tune, though.

    I'll attempt to remember to let you know if I ever purchase an iTune.

    95% of my iTunes selections are my own CDs I've imported into iTunes. Were you not aware of that possibility?

    Dirty Deeds

    "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" (AC/DC).

    My 2-yr old asks me to play this song every time we get in the car. As soon as it ends, he asks for my second most played song in iTunes; "Cheap Sunglasses". I have serious questions about what this means about his future or rather my future as his father. I mean, he's 2!

    On my home computer, though, it's "Get Back" from Let It Be.

    iTunes isn't very accurate. I've played other songs way more.

    I've got a tie between "Help I'm Alive" by Metric and "I've Been Down" by Sweatshop Union. I certainly enjoy both of these, but I don't think my computer's iTunes is a very accurate representation of what I listen to as I haven't listened to music on it in a while.

    My top 25 is largely a list of what songs/albums I've put on repeat while studying for exams in the past.

    Right now it's Masquito by Duke Levine. I play it when I wake up and a couple times a day.

    I hadn't been checking but a song by Thousand Foot Krutch is exactly tied with Lenny by the one and only SRV.

    How does iTunes work this out?!
    I can see the 'obvious' method it might use, but something is not right

    Apparently mine is Shooting Star by Bob Dylan.
    Not sure about that in reality, but at least it is possible - it is a definite favourite.

    But if I order the tunes by play count, the next ones below that in 'play count' are clearly way, way wrong - I know for sure. - as we all would.
    We know what we listen to most, whatever iTunes apparently 'thinks'.

    So, I have no idea what algorithm iTunes thinks it uses best to interpret this, but I know - for sure - that it gets it way wrong if it thinks it 'knows' what I listen to most. Way. Wrong. !

    The dang count gets reset every time I have to uninstall and reinstall Itunes because it gets messed up from some auto update. So, currently the most played songs are by some new band "Pierce the Veil", obviously some of my 15yr old daughter's excuses for music. Of course, it's gonna take forever for something of mine to take the top spot, with over 15k songs to choose from. It'll probably be some thing by AC/DC because it's at the top of the list and also it's my housecleaning music.

    "Riga Girls" by the Weepies.
    It's odd, since I am so guitar-centric.
    Reminds me of my "long ago".
