- Lovely Allen by Holy Fuck – 153
- Pullin Punches by Arkells – 150
- Fresh Blood by Eels – 137
- Working Full-Time by The Constantines – 122
- Happy by The Wrens – 113
- Your Hand in Mine by Explosions in the Sky – 111
- Dance Like a Monkey by New York Dolls – 106 (this one’s skewed because I accidentally left it on repeat one day where I had a lot of meetings and I forgot to pause it – still, it’s a great song. The video is killer)
- I Play My Kazoo by Grand Analog – 102
- Soon Enough by The Constantines – 101
- Violet Light by Raised by Swans – 101
It’s funny that the bands I consider my all-time favorites don’t show up until farther down the list (Massive Attack shows up at number 13 with Paradise Circus and Morphine doesn’t show up until number 26 with Come Along). The Constantines show up a ton in the top 50, but that’s mostly because my “Best of the Constantines” playlist was a constant companion for almost a year when I had to crank out code on a deadline.
Oh well, there you go, my top 10 songs played in iTunes. I wish I could do the same in Rdio. I have a feeling it would be dominated by Library Voices.
And yes, this post is instead of writing one about my time at SxSW this year or my new job at Rails Machine that I start in a few weeks. I might write those blog posts later.
