What Are We Listening To?

iTunes reports 7,350 songs in our catalog. I last did this survey in July. It's not a straight-across comparison. In addition to leaving off the nursery/lullabye music as it plays for hours sometimes. This is unfair to Jim Brickman, but what can you do? Also eliminated from the list - the audio clips. Since there are fewer of them and there's always some in my collection, they, too, will rise up to dominate the most listened to. Because of these changes, it's hard to compare the last update with this one, so I won't this time around.

The stuff that has been in iTunes the longest continues to hold on to the top spot. My lists avoid playing the top items too often (a bit socialist, really), it will be interesting to see if new blood does start to show up. Or if my children continue to request the same songs over and over again (like "Who Says You Can't Go Home" and "Girl You Know It's True" and "Bye Bye Bye") and keeps them at the top.
