What are your top 10 most-played songs currently?
It’s hard to say what my current top 10 is…. Current since when? But according to iTunes, these are the 10 songs I’ve listened to most—since I got an iPod back in September 2004:
1.) “Best I Ever Had,” by Gary Allan (from Tough All Over) (up one spot since I last, um, reported on this, back in September 2006);
2.) “Insensitive,” by Jann Arden (from Living Under June) (down one);
3.) “Something About What Happens When We Talk,” by Lucinda Williams (from Sweet Old World);
4.) “The First Cut Is the Deepest,” by Sheryl Crow (from The Very Best of Sheryl Crow) (and I don’t even particularly like this song!);
5.) “Headed for a Fall,” by Jimmie Dale Gilmore (from Braver Newer World) (up one);
6.) “Broken Arrow,” by Rod Stewart (from Encore: The Very Best of Rod Stewart, Vol. 2) (up one);
7.) “Coffee, Coffee, Coffee,” by Freedy Johnston (from Real: The Tom T. Hall Project) (up six!);
8.) “Let’s Stay Together,” by Al Green (from Let’s Stay Together) (up two);
9.) “What Kind of Fool,” by Gary Allan (from Tough All Over) (also up six); and
10.) “Give Me One Reason,” by Tracy Chapman (from New Beginning) (down five).
What dropped out of the top 10 since September 2006? “Letter from an Occupant,” by the New Pornographers (from Mass Romantic); and Jasper Steverlinck’s cover of “Insensitive” (from Songs of Innocence).
