It’s been many years since I noted down my 25 most played songs (in iTunes, anyway). The list has an immense amount of inertia behind it, so there’s now things in that I typically skip, but enough has changed since the last posting that I think it has meaning.
Also, I really don’t trust my collective iDevices. I don’t think they accurately record play counts to begin with, let alone once you start dealing with syncing issues and so forth. Thus I suspect a high margin of error all round, that I hope that it’s evenly distributed such that the relative play counts are still meaningful.

Compare all that with about five years ago.
