Speaking of the top pop songs of all time, I've finally updated my version of iTunes to a version that tells me how many times I've played a particular song on my iPod. I'm not sure how far back the rankings go, but the results are pretty surprising. Way, way ahead of any other song is "Dry the Rain" by The Beta Band, at an amazing 250 listens. The rest of the top five: "You Were Right" by Badly Drawn Boy (180), "Caring is Creepy" by The Shins (160, and that's only since I got the Garden State soundtrack), "Left and Leaving" by The Weakerthans (112), and "I'm Not Sorry" by Morrissey (106). In ten years, I'll probably find that list fascinating or disturbing, or both.

Great songs, though.
