iTunes Top 25

Hey Ranters!

I did something kind of revealing and interesting on my iTunes today. I took a look at my Top 25, and its diversity kind of surprised me. I think I was struck not only by the artists that were represented but by ones that didn't make the top 25. Of course, your top 25 changes all the time, so this is a fluid list. Nevertheless, I invite you to share your current top 25, either here in comments or in your own blog.

Here's mine:

1. Bloody Mary - The Panic Channel
2. Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In - The 5th Dimension
3. Someday You Will Be Loved - Death Cab for Cutie
4. Ladylike - Storm and the Balls
5. I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys
6. Black Shoes - The Films (a band I found during my short time on MySpace, they rule)
7. Juicebox - The Strokes
8. Save Me - Aimee Mann
9. Writings on the Wall - The Album Leaf
10. Time Again - Asia
11. Ave Maria + Intro - Chris Cornell and Eleven
12. Skin and Bones - Foo Fighters
13. Crazy - Gnarls Barkley
14. Handsome Devil - Jim Bianco
15. Death by 1000 Cuts - Joe Ongie
16. Firesign - Juke Kartel
17. Save Me - Juke Kartel
18. Throw It Away - Juke Kartel
19. Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair - Nina Simone
20. No One Knows - Queens of the Stone Age
21. Walking with a Ghost - Tegan and Sara
22. Mother Mother - Tracy Bonham
23. Starless - King Crimson
24. Woman - Wolfmother
25. I Hope I Die Before You Do - John Hoskinson

I usually just play my iPod on Shuffle, so they songs all play randomly - but I do have skin and bones and the QOTSA in my play list

That song Crazy by Gnarles Barkley is like crack. Its very addicting, have you heard their second single?

Your list proves you are waaaaay more culturally aware then this rock slob.

That's a pretty eclectic mix. I'll have to check out my Top 25. But seriously...Aquarius?

Both you and Pelegrim have a very interesting list.

I tend to listen obsessively to one group over and over for a couple of months and move on to another. Right now I'm very into Flogging Molly.

Prunella...I listened to a snippet of Flogging Molly on the itunes store and I immediately craved a pint of guinness.

Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In was one of my favorite songs as a kid. I remember belting this out in the car and driving my mom nuts.

Save Me - A+
Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair - A+

Wow LA I see a strong RockStar SuperNova influence here. I have LadyLike (The R rated version) on my MYSpace page as a tribute to 2006, cause 06 was all about RS/Sn wasn't it? Anyway without looking I know my top 25 would include She Wants Revenge and the Racounteurs and Coldplay.....
