fripodding and heavy rotating: top played artists… kinda


iSaac has a new friend...

I had the idea to do a friPod post regarding Spring/Summer playlists since these past few days have been sunny, warm and just all kinds of beautiful outside. But I know for me, it takes a good while to compose a playlist of my own doing without the assistance of iTunes’ Genius feature, which, I’ll admit, is a nice feature they’ve added. I was listening to a list created a few months ago, based from the song “Mo Money, Mo Problems.” For the most part, it captured the sunny and springy mood I was in, especially while driving, but I had a few exceptions I needed to skip, so the list wasn’t perfect. I considered posting that for today’s post, but I decided against it due to the imperfections.

Instead, I decided to post the top listened to artists iSaac has been playing. Technically, it’s a list of the top songs that my iTunes library has been playing. So it’s not correct to say it’s the top artists played since the list would probably look a lot different and include artists that I regularly have on heavy rotation. But the list of artists surprised me nonetheless.

The artists and their songs are as follows and are in the order of artists and their songs… You’ll get the point.

  1. Sam Cooke [(1.)”Nearer To Thee (Live)”, (13.)”Yeah Man”, (19.)”Bring It on Home to Me (Live)”] (C’mon son, no contest.)
  2. Curtis Mayfield [(2.) “P.S. I Love You”] (It’s no secret I love this song and this artist and he would probably make the list regardless.)
  3. Parliament [(3.) “Flash Light”] (This song tends to find its way on a lot of my playlists as well as be one of my favorite songs. This is the only song I have from this group.)
  4. Kanye West [(4.) “Champion”] (Another song that’s on a number of other playlists as well as a “go-to” song when I’m feeling like a champion. But I do listen to a lot of his other songs a lot of the time.)
  5. Fall Out Boy [(5.) “America’s Suitehearts”, (8.) “She’s My Winona”, (9.) “Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On a Bad Bet”, (14.) “Coffee’s for Closers”, (16.) “The (Shipped) Gold Standard”, (17.) “Tiffany Blews”, (18.) “The Carpal Tunnel of Love”, (20.) “Bang the Doldrums”, (24.) “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes”] (Apparently I listen to a lot of this band.)
  6. Daft Punk [(6.) “Digital Love”, (10.) “Aerodynamic”, (11.) “One More Time”, (12.) “Face to Face”, (15.) “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”, (22.) “Too Long / Steam Machine”] (I actually wasn’t aware of how often I do listen to them, but I usually listen a lot when I’m working or driving.)
  7. Robin Thicke [(7.) “Magic”] (This song made the playlist because not only is it another song on many playlists, but I let it play on repeat for about an hour or so once.)
  8. Justice [(21.) “D.A.N.C.E.”] (I listen to their album just as often as I do Daft Punk also while at work or in the car.)
  9. Tim Myers [(24.) “Brand New Day”] (Really? I listened to this song that many times that it’s the 24th most played song? Wow. I like the song but this is a bit much.)
  10. Stevie Wonder [(25.) “I’m Wondering”] (As an artist, I know I listen to him a lot more, but I know this song is on a few playlists as well.)

After reviewing the list, I can already count off a number of artists that should be on this list. As in, “the top 25 Played Artists.” I’m sure Alicia Keys, The Roots, John Legend, Joss Stone, Deitrick Haddon, James Brown, Prince, Michael Jackson and Jay Z would more than likely make the list. Maybe not in that order, but who knows? In any event, we’ll see how this list changes, if it does change, around this time next year.
