Your iTunes PSB Top Ten

#1 Post by Effen Vida » Sat 11 Aug 2012, 8:40 pm

For the first time in a long time I decided to take a look where PSB songs rank in my iTunes most played and it was quite a surprise.

My top ten most played PSB songs are:

1. This Used to be The Future (!!) - 39 plays
2. Being Boring - 31 plays
3. Casanova in Hell - 30 plays
4. Love etc. - 30 plays
5. Only the Wind - 26 plays
6. Integral - 26 plays
7. You Choose - 26 plays
8. All Over the World (New Version) - 25 plays
9. The Way it Used to Be - 25 plays
10. Up Against It - 25 plays

Plays from my iPod won't have been added as I haven't synched it for a long, long time. I'm stunned Left to my own devices isn't in there - though there are quite a few notables missing. Obviously, they appear further down the list, but still...

So, how does your top ten look (discounting other artists) ? - my *actual* top ten only features ONE PSB song (another surprise) but they do feature much more than any other artist.

And before I get blasted by the Apple haters, it doesn't have to be iTunes, obviously...

Without aggregating mixes or anything like that......

1. Love Etc. (51)
2. Pandemonium (48)
3. King Of Rome (44)
4. All Over The World (41)
5. Did You See Me Coming? (35)
6= Beautiful People (33)
6= More Than A Dream (33)
8= Building A Wall (32)
8= The Way It Used To Be (32)
10= This Used To Be The Future (28)
10= Vulnerable (28)

As you can see, it's basically Yes... which is the first PSB album I got to know more through my iPod Shuffle than through the physical disc.

This is fascinating - certainly not what I would have thought I most played in iTunes:

1. Love comes quickly - 134 plays
2. Happiness is an option - 64
3. Winner - 64
4. This used to the future - 51
5. More than a dream (Magical Dub) - 48
6. Pandemonium (The Stars and the Sun Dub) - 47
7. You only tell me you love me when you're drunk - 47
8. Closer to heaven - 45
9. Radiophonic - 44
10. I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more - 43

And honourable mentions for:

Performance of my life - 265 plays - written by the Boys for Shirley Bassey
Disappointed (2006 Remastered 7 inch single mix) - 89 plays
It's all true - Tracey Thorn - 68 - discovered her from reading about her cover of Kings Cross on this forum
... Che Guevara and Debussy to a disco beat ...

2. More Than A Dream (Magical Dub) - 17
3. Luna Park - 14
4. The Way Is Used To Be (Left Of Love Dub) - 13
5. Bright Young Things - 13
6. Building A Wall - 13
7. The Way It Used To Be - 13
8. For All Of Us (Demo) - 12

Top 10 since I started using Itunes in early 2009. I have been tracking pretty much everything I've listened to since then:

1. The Way It Used To Be - 80 plays (this is #2 of all songs, behing Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance")
2. All Over The World - 78 plays (cheated a bit here, since I've combined the album version and single version)
3. King Of Rome - 52 plays
4. This Used To Be The Future - 46 plays
5. More Than A Dream - 36 plays
6. Did You See Me Coming? - 31 plays
7. Together - 29 plays
8. Love Etc - 27 plays
9. More Than A Dream (Magical dub) - 26 plays
10. Vulnerable/Building A Wall/Pandemonium - 25 plays

So it's basically Yes with Together added. As for tracks released before 2009:

1. I'm Not Scared - 19 plays
2. Two Divided By Zero - 18 plays
3. Casanova In Hell/Fugitive - 13 plays

1. One More Chance - 27 plays
2. Hit and Miss - 20 plays
3. DJ Culture - 19 plays
4. Paninaro (Italian Mix) - 15 plays
4. The Sodom and Gmorroah Show - 15 plays
6. Domino Dancing (Alternative version) - 14 plays
7. A Red Letter Day (Expanded single version) - 11 plays
8. Birthday Boy - 9 plays
8. New York City Boy (The Almighty Definitive Mix) 9 plays
10. You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk 7 plays

My iPod is nearly always on random play so these tracks don't reflect my personal taste in Pet Shop Boys music, just was has come up most.
