My music: I really don’t know what to say

Look, some of my best friends are gay, etc etc…

So I tried out this little app called iTunes Statistician (found via the Tunequest blog) and it tells you what the most listened-to artists are in your iTunes library. Not that it would be difficult in my case, for ‘t’would be Half Man Half Biscuit, naturally.

Except not.

OK, look, it takes confidence in your heterosexuality to be able to publish the chart above. And I can explain, really I can, that amongst our family’s increasing fleet of iPods, one plays poptastic stuff for hours on end down in the kitchen – and when I plug it into the Mac to update, it increments the play count here on iTunes. So that explains four of the top five (and actually also Lee Ritenour, from our “dinner party” playlist. Mmm, nice).

Then again, whilst the last few gigs I’ve attended have been respectable enough to discuss down the pub, I see the next two lots of tickets on my pinboard are Girls Aloud and Kylie. “It was the missus made me do it!”, he screamed, as the style police dragged him away…

iTunes stats Mr Shadrach? It’s a very big place. You could lose yourself in iTunes stats. Lose yourself. Loooose yourself. LOSE YOURSELF IN iTUNES STATS!

Sorry, couldn’t help it.

You realise what the next step is, don’t you? Personalised iTunes counts. I’ve now got people moaning at me because they’ve found out Bob the Builder and Barney the Purple Dinosaur are their favourite acts.
