U2 songs listened to most on itunes
« on: November 01, 2008, 12:19:28 AM »
I thought this would be interesting since itunes keeps track of how many times you listen to a song.  Of course it's not exact since many people may have deleted the original albums and added the remastered on some of the albums or other stuff like that.  But anyways, just post a top 10 or so:

1) Daddy's Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car (80 times)
2) Do You Feel Loved (76)
3) Zooropa (75)
4) New Year's Day (73)
4) Two Hearts Beat as One (73)
6) Your Blue Room (72)
7) Discothéque (71)
8) Zoo Station (67)
9) Beautiful Day (66)
9) Vertigo (66)
11) With or Without You (61)
12) One (59)
12) Walk On (59)
12) Bullet the Blue Sky (59)
15) The Fly (56)
16) Acrobat (53)
16) Sunday Bloody Sunday (53)
16) Stay (Faraway, So Close) (53)
19) Elevation (50)
19) The Unforgettable Fire (50)

1. Please (18)
2. Mysterious Ways (16)
3. Vertigo (16)
4. Staring At The Sun (16)
5. Even Better Than The Real Thing (15)
6. When I Look At The World (15)
7. Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own (15)
8. The Playboy Mansion (15)
9. Stay (Faraway, So Close!) [14]

I just got iTunes, that's why my play count seems so futile. Hhmmm....I just realized there's nothing from the 80's.... ???

I added together versions from the original album and the Best of the 90s. So it's skewed towards the duplicate ones.

Mysterious Ways (68)
Elevation (61)
Stuck in a Moment (56)
One (Mary J. Blige version) (54)
Until the End of the World (53)
Beautiful Day (45)
I Still Haven't Found (40)
Even Better Than the Real Thing (39)
One (39)
With or Without You (35)

The ones that got bumped off by the duplicates were The Sweetest Thing, The Saints Are Coming, and Sunday Bloody Sunday.

This is off subject...but after I downloaded the newest version of iTunes I now have a pink and purple interface. Does anyone else have this problem?

Right click on your desktop (your background picture on windows), choose properties, choose the settings tab and change your color quality from 16 bit to 32 bit to fix that problem.

If this kept track of how many times I listened to U2 tracks on my actual ipod it would skyrocket.  I listen to my ipod for about 4 hours a day and at least once a week for that four hours I just have ipod settings set to shuffle songs then just choose artist U2 and songs all and listen to that.

Last.fm does have the option to do that, but when it asks me if I want to scrobble the songs I've listen to on my ipod it seems like the list is much smaller then what I actually listened to so it's not very exact.

But here's a link to my last.fm account:
