Is play count watching a step too far: 1 year on

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-11176202-2’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

A year ago (give or take a few days) I collated my iTunes top 10 most played. For the full list you can click here but my most played songs were a tie between Beyonce’s Diva, Cheryl Cole’s Fight For This Love and Lady Gaga’s Poker Face. One look at the list seen in the picture above (click it to make it larger) proves that while all three of these songs have remained in the top 10, songs from 2010 have gone on to be played a ridiculous amount of time on my iTunes in the past year.

Rihanna rules the roost, as Rude Boy has been fighting off GaGa’s Alejandro for the top spot for months. Both songs have crossed over 200 plays now too, the first songs in my collection to do so.

Looking at the latest tallys, it’s strange to think that this time last year I hadn’t even heard songs like Dancing on My Own and Dynamite yet, and they’ve reached so high in my list so quickly. Robyn marks the first act to have an album track make it into my Top 25 Most Played Playlist, Fembot never truly being released as a single. Another figure to note is the increase in songs that have reached the 100 play milestone, the latest Who’s That Chick by David Guetta Feat. Rihanna being the 46th in the tally. The amount this time last year was just 18, amazing considering the amount of new songs to have crossed that play barrier.

Hopefully in February of 2012, I’ll be able to do another of these posts, as everyone knows how much play counts mean to me.
