iTUNES top 25 most played.

the social networking generation loves to advertise their musical tastes. about me sections filled with favorite bands and definitions of what they claim to be ‘good’ music.  anyway, that’s what they’d have you believe.  whatever people post to their sites are what they WANT you to think they’re into.  but nothing speaks more clearly about a person’s musical tastes than their iTUNES top  25 most played.

it could be a list of your all-time favorites.  maybe the shit you bump because it’s something all your friends can agree on.  or the shit you bump when you’re alone.  those playlists with one song on them, because you don’t wanna listen to anything else that day.  or that shit you accidentally left on repeat and  fell asleep to.  accidentally?

i love going through people’s iPOD’s and dissecting their playlists.  it’s a way to get into their heads.  some people are actually as dull as they are in person.  but some store gems, bursting with psychological content, doorways into their soul.  or sometimes it’s as simple as “holy shit, this chick is cheating on her husband, has a love-child with a percussionist she met at a rave in brazil, and is ghostwriting the Twilight series.”   ok, maybe not.  sometimes, i’m just a mind-perv looking for parallels between me and you, using them as evidence to prove to myself that i’m not a total psycho.

anyway, i reset my playcount sometime after the new year so this is the shit that’s been getting bump for the past few months.  hardly a window into my soul.  i can’t be that shallow?  or i could just be saying that.

one of the kevin’s i know once told me that i was an open-book.  (and i got offended cause i always thought i was introverted.)
