The Ferris 2009 Music Top 20

It's the end of the year, which means it time for christmas trees, overeating, and year-in-review lists. For my lists, I wanted to get an idea of what I was listening to in 2009. Unfortunately, though iTunes tracks playcounts, you can't break it down by year. Instead, I decided to look at the play counts for songs that I added in 2009 (though the song may have actually come out much earlier). Either way, it paints a pretty clear picture of what I listen to. Here's the top 20 artist + song + playcount.

1) Michele Williams - We Break the Dawn (Karmatronic Club Remix) [99]
2) DymeDef - Get Down [81]
3) Kate Havnevik - Timeless [66]
4) Passion Pit - Sleepyhead [65]
5) Cascada - Evacuate the Dancefloor [64]
6) Danger Mouse & Jemini - Ghetto Pop Life [62]
7) School of Seven Bells - Half Asleep [54]
8) Free Energy - Free Energy [51]
9) Phoenix - 1901 [50]
10) Basement Jaxx - Raindrops [49]
11) Madcon - Beggin' [46]
12) Michael Jackson - Scream [45]
13) Starfucker - Biggie Smalls [44]
14) The Unicorns - I Was Born (A Unicorn) [44]
15) KRS-One - Illegal Business [42]
16) Dirty Projectors - Stillness is the Move [40]
17) Fresh Espresso - The Lazerbeams [40]
18) Meiko - Reasons to Love You [39]
19) Q-Tip - Move [39]
20) Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling [37]

Trends: Dance music is my guilty pleasure. Michele Williams, Cascada, Basement Jaxx, Madcon, Black Eyed Peas and even a little MJ (rip). Toss in some hip-hop (DymeDef, Danger Mouse, KRS-One, Fresh Espresso, Q-Tip) and some indie-ish stuff (Passion Pit, School of Seven Bells, Free Energy, Phoenix, Starfucker, Dirty Projectors) along with everything else, and you are left with a rockin playlist. If you are a Brian Ferris that is (god help you).

Interesting. I guess it's not quite as ferris dance revolution as I expected.

My lastfm stats indicate that I've been listening to 'A milli' on repeat this year, interspersed with some bouts of the avett bros.
