A few years ago, I made this list of the most played songs on my iPod, but it’s been four years since then, so I thought I’d update it. Now, I’m old school – I don’t stream music, I still use an iPod (separate to my phone, as my iPod has bigger storage) filled with music I’ve downloaded or imported from CDs – yes, I still buy those! So this list is taken from the play count next to each song on iTunes when I plug it into my laptop. I’m using my iPod counts, not my iTunes library ones, as I listen to music on the iPod far more than the computer.
This list actually surprised me at first, since it’s got a lot of new music in it, but then I remembered that’s because my current iPod is only about a year and a half old. Anytime I’ve had to reset or replace an iPod, the play counts get reset, so I can’t see what are my most listened to songs ever over the years. This list is more a reflection of what I’ve listened to most in the last year or so. Some older songs were also surprising at first (4, 7, 9), but then I realised most of these feature on the particular playlist I’ve been playing on repeat over the last few months, largely chosen for summer time vibes.
