Hello Hello!!

U2 play count fun @ 03:53 pm

reecord2:
I'm currently hearin: Elevation Boston DVD

Ok guys, I've been meaning to do this survey for quite a while, I dunno if it's been done before, but I thought it would be fun to see what everyone's top 10 most played U2 songs are on their iTunes and iPods. You could do a top 5, 10, 20, whatever you feel like.



iTunes

Do You Feel Loved 3
One Tree Hill 3
Gone 3
Zoo Station 3
She's Gonna Blow Your House Down (acoustic) 3
Peace on Earth 3
Mysterious Ways 2
Flower Child 2
Please (single version) 2
Walk On (Elevation Staples Center 11/19/01 2

iPod

Window In The Skies 64
Beautiful Day 16
Original of the Species 16
All Because of You (Alternate) 15
Crumbs From Your Table 15
All Because of You 14
Yaweh (Alternate Version) 13
Sometimes You Can't Make It... 13
Mysterious Ways 12
Vertigo 12
Miracle Drug 12
Last Night On Earth 12


I confess I thought my results would be more varied, lol. And Apparently I listen to the iPod alot more than the iTunes.

I've always liked U2's Paint it Black, even though everyone seems to trash it.

I recently compared my Last.FM top played tracks to my Windows Media Player top played tracks, and the differences were a little weird, considering my Last.FM goes through my WMP, but here you go:

Last.FM:

Zooropa - 56
Slow Dancing - 52
Gone - 51
Running to Stand Still - 48
So Cruel - 47
Last Night on Earth - 47
Zoo Station - 45
Salome - 43
Exit - 42

Windows Media Player:

Zooropa - 48
Slow Dancing - 45
The First Time - 38
Trip Through Your Wires - 37
Zoo Station - 35
Last Night On Earth - 34
Gone - 33
Mofo - 33
Drowning Man - 33
Levitate - 32

I dunno how I ended up with songs that aren't even in my Last.FM top ten ahead of songs that are O_o

someone likes In A Little While! I think, after 7 years, (holy sh*t I can't believe it's been that long) that song is my favorite off of ATYCLB.

Ditto. Some of Bono's best songs are about hangovers!

Yeah I love that song, and I did over play it at a certain point during college where everything was just getting to me lol. I used to just put that on and turn up the volume. Plus most of those counts are probably some of the many live versions I have too.

Damn, my play counts on iTunes (which must be counting my iPod, because I never sit around and listen to music on my laptop) blow all of you out of the water. Guess that means my computer's a lot older, or I just listen to the boys that much more.

Fast Cars 472
Gloria 413
City of Blinding Lights 380
Ultra Violet 359
Elevation (Influx remix) 334
A Sort of Homecoming (Wide Awake in America) 321
Mysterious Ways 308
A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel 293
Everlasting Love 282
Even Better Than the Real Thing 255
Whose Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses 251
With or Without You 225
Vertigo 222
The Fly 217
Pride 215
Streets 200

I'll stop there...I'm surprised about Vertigo and that One Tree Hill didn't break 200, but otherwise that seems about right. I fell in love with Fast Cars the second I heard Bono's opening wail.
