The songs you keep playing

    I'd say most of us have iTunes or a comparable program that keeps track of how many times you play through your songs and such. The 'Fergie...' thread got me thinking of songs we like, which should be good, unlike the garbage that's played on most radio stations.
    So, what do you keep playing over and over again on your iPod or mp3 player?

    For me:
    Top 5 (In no particular order):
    "Here I Come" The Roots
    "Can I Kick it" A Tribe Called Quest
    "Surf Song", Jack Johnson and G-Love
    "Buddy Holly" Weezer
    "Root Down" Beastie Boys

    I was actually really surprised by my iTunes Top 5 the other day:

    Anna Nalick "In The Rough"
    Mr. Mister "Kyrie"
    Depeche Mode "Precious"
    A Perfect Circle "3 Libras"
    House of Pain "Top o' the Morning"

    If you asked me, none of these groups would be among my all-time favorites, yet there's a huge gap between my 20 most-played songs and everything else in my library. Strange how it happens.

    Dammit, I so wish I wasn't out of town this weekend. I'll try to remember to dig this up once I get back home to my iTunes.

    I'm a looser and don't do iTunes, iPods or MP3 players of anysort.

    But if I did, I'm pretty sure The Killers -- All the Things I Have Done, in particular -- would be all over my list.

    Sadly, I have a sneeky suspicion I'm going to be a little disappointed by Aaron Flowers the and boys when Sams Town comes out in a month.
