This week will have a significantly increased level of StoneSoup activity, and what better way to start it than with an Ask the Audience. I tried tweeting this week’s question out. (Late at night. On a weekend.) and (un)surprisingly, got little response, but the one response I did get (from Andrew W.) turned me on to a cool new song and band (Kites by Geographer), so I figured I’d give the question a try to a broader forum:
What’s your most-played iTunes song*?
I hope people will like this question not only because it should help get cool recommendations for music, but also for what it says about your taste in music and what stuff you tend to really like.
For the record, my current top-played song is Florence and the Machine’s “Howl”, with 41 plays. The Ratatat remix of Biggie’s “Party and Bullshit” comes in a close second, with 40 plays, and Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies)” is number three, with 39. Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Mgmt take up two slots each in my top ten (though the Strokes rhythm guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr. also has the song “In Transit (Obstinate)” in there as well).
*In case this isn’t obvious, you can find out by clicking on the top-right “Plays” tab on iTunes
Listen to four of my top ten after the jump.
