i love my lists

there’s nothing i love more than a list – except perhaps an automatically generated list.
The smarts at apple have provided me with an automatic playlist to fall back on since i got my first ipod (poodle) at 18…
Since then i’ve had to reset the play counts a couple of times due to computer failures, iTune upgrades gone wrong once or twice… But i haven’t had to do that for a good couple of years so most of the top 20 are well and truly in the 200+ plays column.
What surprised me about this list is the same artists popping up… Muse, Birds of Tokyo, Rise Against, Zero 7… I would count myself as a muse fan from way back – but zero 7 is a sunday morning / going to sleep album – Rise Against is a running album – Birds of Tokyo got hershed when i last went travelling (i had just seen them live and was reliving it over and over again)
Also there’s 5 songs that i haven’t even listened to in the last month…
I can’t see those top 2 songs getting knocked off any time soon…
