Most of you know how much I love music. I checked the top played songs in my iTunes library to see what they say about me. Honestly, the top two are only there because they were on my Study! playlist last summer and last fall. The third is on there because it's a newfound favorite.
Most played songs
#1 "Swansea" Bombay Bicycle Club
#2 "Twenty Two" Wakey!Wakey!
#3 "Mall and Misery" Broken Bells
Most played albums
#1 Abbey Road the Beatles
#2 Castaways and Cutouts The Decemberists
#3 Third Eye Blind Third Eye Blind
More telling are the top albums, which I chose based on the number of plays of the songs within the album. Abbey Road is a duh. I am a Beatles fan through and through. Castaways and Cutouts is the first The Decemberists album I owned and it is still my favorite of theirs. Third Eye Blind had one of the best albums of the nineties and when I write, their music placates to my nostalgia.
It's funny how I thought listing three songs could say something about me. Right under those front-runners is list of songs with over a hundred plays. They are eclectic, indie, and soothing - with the occasional happy dance song ("Time to Pretend" MGMT). Now all I want to do is lay around and listen to music all day!
