I only recognized, or rather could think of the tune, of one of the songs on Larilyn’s Top 25 Most Played list. That was “Killing Me Softly,” which I don’t even have in my iTunes library! I assume you’ll be able to do better with mine:

|Big Yellow Taxi||Counting Crows & Vanessa Carlton||219|
|Before Me And You||SHeDAISY||217|
|Here Without You||3 Doors Down||216|
|What a Beautiful Day||Chris Cagle||213|
|Hotel Paper||Michelle Branch||213|
|With You||Jessica Simpson||208|

The only real problem with iTunes counts is that all the older songs are going to dominate the list.
Surprisingly there aren’t really any songs I am too embarrassed to have on this list either, as long as you keep in mind that some of these songs have just been around for a while. Every one of these songs lists a date added of 2/12/05, which must have been the date of an update or a corrupted iTunes DB file, so no recent songs are anywhere near the list.
I wish Apple would incorporate a recent play count timer in iTunes so that you could get a list of your top 40 for the week/month. I do see they incorporated a “skip” count and a last skipped which is pretty cool! I’ve requested that a few times so that I could see what songs I was constantly skipping and remove them from playlists to eliminate the hassle of having to skip them.
I’d be interested to see if anyone else has some tastes as “old” as mine…
