The Very Quick Play-Count Meme  
from ocarina

For this little three-question game you'll need some sort of play-count record on your mp3 library. No guessing!

1) What's the most-played track in your mp3 collection, and how many times has it been played?
"Ana Ng" by They Might Be Giants: 47

2) Divide that play count in half and round up. What's the nearest song?
"Galvanize" by The Chemical Bros feat. Q-Tip, and "Cock Mobster" by MC Paul Barman: 24

3) Divide that play count in half, and round up again.
"A Hymn to the Morning Star" by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum; "All Caps" by Madvillain; "Anthem Apocalyptica" by Machinae Supremacy; "Borg Sex", "Chords of Life", and "Oriental Melody" by Joe Satriani; "Born Too Slow" by The Crystal Method; "Eminem vs. Benny Hill" (mash-up, artist unknown); "Head Like a Hole" by Devo; "Heavy Metal" by Sammy Hagar; "In a Glass House" by Gentle Giant; "In Da Club (bhangra remix)" by DJ Sanj; "Lapdance" by NERD; "Matte Kudasai" by King Crimson; "Party Hard" by Andrew WK; "Q Samba (Sub Dub Mix)" by Arto Lindsay; "Speed Racer (Porno Remix)" by DJ Keoki; "Steady As She Goes" by The Raconteurs; "Time To Start" by Blue Man Group; "USA USA" by Blacksmoke: 12

4) Care to explain yourself?
I have a tendency to listen to my iPod on full random play a lot of the time, which spreads things around, hence the low numbers. "Ana Ng" is just an awesome song. I feel like I should make excuses for "In Da Club", because 50 Cent sucks so much, but I won't.

Results are slightly different if I go by my Last.FM stats rather than iTunes, since I've had iTunes for longer, but a lot of the same things show up. I was actually surprised that I had two results for #2 with both sources, and "Cock Mobster" is one of them for both.

Most played: Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Sonik Azure OC Remix (114X)
Halfway: Chrono Trigger Temporal Distortion OC Remix / Starfox Godspeed OC Remix (57)
Three-quarters: Way too many to list here, but the first alphabetically is Castlevania Castlemania OC Remix (29)

What can I say, I listen to a lot of videogame remixes. They aren't all I listen to, but they get the default when I'm working.

Love, love, love Ana Ng!

I, too, have a 50 cent remix that rates rather highly. Mostly because it's hilarious, but it's also good music, once remixed.

I've got another 50 Cent remix, a mashup with Queen: "We Will Rock You In Da Club". It's part of The Silence Xperiment's "Q-Unit's Greatest Hits" mashup album, and awesome.

No playcount feature, so I'll say what's played over the next few tracks: To Hell with Hip-Hop - Old Scratch, I Beg of You - Elvis Presley, Chronically Ill - Ill Engineer, Chopin's Nocturne in B-flat, an unlabeled boogie woogie piano tune, Hanging on the Telephone - Blondie, Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares) - Travis Tritt, Roll Over Beethoven - Chuck Berry, Kung Fu Is My Mom - MC Wreckshun, Fever - Ray Charles (w/Natalie Cole).

So, um...yeah. Yes, it's on random play.
