There’s a Paul Simon cover of 50 ways to leave your lover? What’s wrong with Ray Charles?

Huh, I thought it was written by Paul Simon. Guess I'll have to listen to some Ray Charles.

It was written by Paul Simon, unless I am crazy - oddly Wikipedia doesn't even list a Ray Charles cover.

@farleyslundgren: This probably sounds super sketchy, but if you browse to you get asked to log in to spotify & accept that this 'managemymusic' acccount checks your account for top artists, top songs etc. That's what i used for my list here. Sadly, it doesn't seem to showcase the all-time most listened to songs, but it did show me my fav artists overall & a bunch of recent activity. Spotify.me has a page that shows you some stats as well, but doesn't give you a list of your fav songs neither.

  1. Radiohead
  2. The Smiths
  3. Spiritualized
  4. Gorillaz
  5. The Strokes
  6. Arctic Monkeys
  7. M.I.A.
  8. Muse
  9. Interpol
  10. Ariel Pink

If i have to make an educated guess on which songs i listened to the most it would probably be

1. Karma Police

2. There's a light that never goes out

3. The Straight & Narrow

4. Stylo

5. Hard To Explain

6. Brianstorm

7. Jimmy

8. Map of the Problematique

9. The Heinrich Maneuver

10. Round & Round

Since I started listening to music, I've used too many different programs for listening to music and reset that number too many times to give you an accurate number.

...but I'll see if Google Play keeps up with this.

Black Crown Initiate's Selves We Cannot Forgive has been a staple of mine for a little while now and I listened to Polyphia's Renaissance until I was sick of it.

In reality, I've probably listened to Opeth's Blackwater Park (the whole album, not just the song) way more times than anything in that list, August Burns Red's Messengers has been in and out of my listening rotation since high school, there's a lot of Death in there somewhere, I love Ne Obliviscaris's Portal of I album and parts of Citadel are amazing too. Alter Bridge's Blackbird has also been a staple since high school.

Basically I like a lot of hard rock and prog metal.

EDIT: So what I posted above doesn't seem to keep track of what I listen to on my phone, which is a shame because I'm sure that list would be very different. It's not that I'm ashamed of the list or anything, just that it isn't representative of my listening habits, not since a few years ago at least.

I’m not aware of a way to do this on Amazon Music, but I’d guess I’d see a lot of:

David Bowie

Nick Cave

Dirty Three

Gogol Bordello

Tom Waits

Mariachi El Bronx

Diego’s Umbrella

Man Man

William Elliott Whitmore

I still use MP3's so i don't have a ready made list, but i can guess what tracks i've listened to the most (not necessarily my favourite songs of all time).

Tool - Right in Two
Injected - Bullet
Mudvayne - Nothing to Gein
Toska - Chalk Teeth (this list should probably be mostly tracks from Toska)
Rammstein - Du Riechst So Gut
Audioslave - Show Me How to Live
Alice in Chains - Low Ceiling
Frank Klepacki - Hell March
Sevendust - Shine
Skindred - Living a Lie

I never consistently listen to the same media player so I don't have a good record. But here's my best guess as to my top listens. I don't know about individual tracks, so I'll put albums.

  1. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
  2. Andrew Bird - The Mysterious Production of Eggs
  3. Regina Spektor - Far
  4. The Kinks - Something Else By The Kinks
  5. Paul Simon - Graceland
  6. Radiohead - Kid A
  7. Modest Mouse - The Lonesome Crowded West
  8. Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
  9. DJ Shadow - Endtroducing
  10. Inside Llewyn Davis OST

Edit: Forgot Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs. That has to be on there somewhere...

12 Most Played of 2018:

  2. Danny Elfman - The Grand Finale
  3. Bobby Womack - Across 110th Street
  4. Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge - Enemies All Around Me
  5. Bjork - All is Full of Love

  7. Janelle Monae - Sir Greendown
  8. Moses Sumney - Don't Bother Calling
