My Favorite Music (according to my Zune)

WSo, like any good modern media software, the Zune tracks the number of plays you have for each song.  As I noticed that I was approaching 25,000 total plays, I figured I’d take a look at my top artists, just for fun.  It’s one thing to say a certain band is your favorite… it’s another to add stats to it!

8 Gnarls Barkley

7 The Decemberists

6 Over the Rhine

5 Ryan Adams

4 Sufjan Stevens

3 The Killers

2 Eisley

1 Tegan and Sara


Other notables (200 or more plays from the band):

  • Nick Cave
  • They Might Be Giants
  • Meg & Dia
  • Josh Ritter
  • Jon Foreman
  • Silversun Pickups
  • Glen Hansard
  • Modest Mouse
  • The Pipettes
  • Damien Rice
  • Queen
  • The Myriad
  • Scarlet Johansson
  • Johnny Cash
  • Derek Webb
  • Vigilantes of Love
  • Belle & Sebastian
  • Griffin House
  • Tom Waits
  • Tokyo Police Club
  • Kerli
  • Ray LaMontange
  • The Frames

And, since the stats are right there for me to type in, my Top 8 albums (not sure of the order, though):

  • With Arrows, With Poise – the Myriad
  • Anywhere I Lay My Head – Scarlett Johansson
  • Orphans: Brawlers, Brawlers and Bastards – Tom Waits
  • Something Real – Meg & Dia
  • The Odd Couple – Gnarls Barkley
  • We Are the Pipettes – The Pipettes
  • Combinations – Eisley
  • Songs for Christmas Singalong – Sufjan Stevens

  1. Your list is so much cooler than mine. The stuff I listen to over and over again is research instead of life-soundtrack. Can I make a list based on what I wish I listened to the most? Somehow Greenday is in my top 25. Can’t remember listening to that record.

  2. Greenday? Just what are you researching..?

  3. I like your list man. I might have to download some Scarlett Johanson even.
