iTunes and the iPod have a built-in playlist named “Top 25 Most Played”. I thought it would be fun to post it and you can see the full list below.
There are a few things on the list that were a surprise. While I love the album “The Medicine” by John Mark McMillan, the fact the entire album is on the list is a surprise. I’m not surprised the song “Out of the Ground” made the list, though. “A Salty Dog” being on the list was also a surprise. I like it and it’s an interesting song as it has Mike Portnoy singing lead vocals.
There are a few tracks that I’m surprised aren’t in the list. The first is “As I Am” by Dream Theater. That song gets my blood flowing and tend to play it when I need a little energy or want to get “in the zone” for some development. The song “12” from the Neal Morse “?” album is one of my favorite tracks and it surprised me other tracks from the album were one the list but that one wasn’t. The song starts slow and just builds into this awesome jam until it quiets down and leads into the next song, “Entrance”.
The song “Darkside of Aquarius” is obviously one of my favorites, but I really didn’t care for the “Accident of Birth” album.
Lastly, this is probably not entirely correct, as I sometimes use my Windows Phone HTC 8X for listening to music and that obviously won’t affect to the play counts.
Here’s the complete list. I’d be curious to know what others have on their Top 25 Most Played lists.
