Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'

Don't feel old. Pretty much no-one, regardless of age, would know most of that list. I'm pretty eclectic.

Re: top 20 Most played songs in your music collection.

Hmm I have exactly 4 albums in my top 25 songs played on iTunes... But this is also my 87th install of iTunes, so I think it's a bit skewed. I abstain from this for a while longer :P

Re: top 20 Most played songs in your music collection.

Gosh, for the last 12 months, it's been Grouper all the way, according to last.fm. So I'll share the top 20 artists from the last month rather than top 12 songs because then I'll just tell you it's most of the songs from Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill and The Man Who Died In His Boat. (I listen to Grouper before I go to sleep and whenever I am sad/stressed).

Grouper
Bjørn Lynne
Mogwai
Maurice Ravel
Anúna
Tiny Vipers
Deerhunter
Sting
Arthur Grumiaux (playing Bach's Violin Cantatas and Partitas, I have the double-album)
Noirin Ni Riain
Fleet Foxes
Emilie Autumn
Grizzly Bear
Björk
Vampire Weekend
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Dirty Projectors
David Sylvian
Fiona Apple
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

my last fm, for more precise stats

Re: top 20 Most played songs in your music collection.

That is one of my favourite Ärzte songs EVER. Much better than it chartbreaker counterpart Junge!

Re: top 20 Most played songs in your music collection.

Ooh, I seem to have missed this thread back when it was first posted. My play stats sadly got wiped several years ago, so this isn't a good "all time" reflection, but going through the list, I guess it does give a good indication on what I've played purposefully most frequently these last couple of years, more than on what comes up through weighted random shuffle:

Eivør - Where Are the Angels
Brooke Fraser - Something in the Water
Maria Mena - Habits
Hayley Westenra - Dark Waltz
Dar Williams - Buzzer
Ane Brun - Oh Love
Linnea Olsson - Dinosaur
Ane Brun - Big in Japan
Elin Sigvardsson - Boredom
Sarah MacLachlan - Ordinary Miracle
Melissa McClelland - Solitary Life
Linnea Olsson - The Ocean
Ane Brun - One
Ane Brun - The Treehouse Song
Ragnheiður Gröndal - Bella
Hayley Westenra - Who Painted the Moon Black?
Ane Brun - Raise My Head
Jane Siberry - Calling All Angels
Kristinn Hoffmann - Mary
Bic Runga - Blue Blue Heart

Yep, I do seem to have a thing for female Scandinavian singer-songwriters with gorgeous voices, with the kiwis not far behind... :)

20 internet points for anyone who has heard of more than three of these artists.

Re: top 20 Most played songs in your music collection.

Uh, points for me! (Barely, though, maybe I shoud check out the rest!)
I especially love the Dark Waltz, that is one voice of glass!

Woo! :)
Which ones besides Hayley? At a guess I'd suspect at least Maria Mena and Sarah McLachlan. And yeah, if you like several of these, then all the others are very much worth checking out. Some are more folksy, others more ethereal, and others a bit more poppy, but they do all have the gorgeous voices in common. :)

Right! And Brooke Fraser, though from another context. :)
