The Overall Top Five
Paradise – Coldplay
This song is phenomenal. It’s not Sleepyhead by any stretch of the imagination (for any of you just tuning into my blog, Sleepyhead is the greatest song in existence in my opinion), but I really, really, like this one. I can’t explain why, I just do.

Good Life – OneRepublic
This song is very closely tied with my moving to Ontario to start a new beginning. We all saw how well that worked out, but Good Life is still tied into that part of my brain that houses the little ounce of hope I have left.

Corrente – Karl Jenkins
I can’t remember what led to my finding this song…all I know is that within five hours of downloading it I had played it the maximum number of times it could be replayed in five hours. It’s very uplifting and makes me want to do art.

Without You – David Guetta feat. Usher
The fact that it is impossible not to get up and dance/jump/groove to the chorus makes this song a winning one in my eyes.

Check It Out – & Nicki Minaj
I DO NOT KNOW why I like this song so much; it’s totally not my usually preferred style of music. I think I might like it ’cause of its awesome bass during the chorus.

And now some tasty, tasty pie charts. First is the breakdown of the total 365 songs by genre, second is the percent of total plays by genre.

So looking at my numbers, it appears that I listened to songs purchased in 2011 a total of 7,977 times. The mean length of song is almost exactly 4:00, so that means I listened to a total of 1,914,480 seconds of music (31,908 minutes, 532 hours, or about 22 days).


ALSO: I realized I promised y’all some comparative stats with this year’s and last year’s music. I ultimately decided to save that data and use it for one (or more) of the tests I’ll be featuring on my new secondary blog StatsWeekly. Did I mention a secondary blog ever? Well, now I did, so there. I’ll probably use the data on here sometime, too. Can’t let it go to waste, you know. Reduce, Reuse, Regression.

Go to the “365 Songs” tab and check out the bottom for this year’s list.
