The Top 25 Playlist (Part 1, 25–17)

I created a Smart playlist in iTunes, of the top 25 highest-rated tunes, and this is what came up. I should add that this is only the top 25 in this particular iTunes library on this particular Mac, so it’s a mere snapshot of recent-ish activity. I think some on-device plays might have updated the count, but I’m not sure. Definitely the #3 is not put there by my plays alone.

What’s clear is that my favourite records can be condensed down to a very few artists and albums. Give me Tim McGraw, Tift Merritt, Jackson Browne*, Little Big Town, and Frank Sinatra, and I’m good to go.

The all out winner is the song, “I Won’t Dance”, which has over 140 plays over two different versions, both equally good.

*A couple of the songs come from that Jackson Browne tribute album.

25. Fire Away – Chris Stapleton (62 plays)

 

24. Diamond Rings and Old Barstools – Tim McGraw (63)

23. I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Sinatra/Basie live at the Sands (65)

19= Shut Up Train – Little Big Town (66)

19= That’s Life – Frank Sinatra (66)

19= Evil Woman (Stripped Down Mix) – ELO (66)

19= Onto Something Good – Ashley Monroe (66)

17= Tupelo Honey – Jim Horn with Vince Gill (70)

17= Your Bright Baby Blues – Jackson Browne (70)
