Fitz, I meant number of songs, not play count.

OnePoint, in my ITunes, if you just select an artist, it says the number of songs at the bottom. I dunno if yours is the same.

Opeth - 94
Sonata Arctica - 64

Everything that’s at/above 50:

Metallica - 147
Billy Joel - 110
Bon Jovi - 97
Pearl Jam - 93
Van Halen - 78
Allman Brothers - 74
Rammstein - 63
SRV - 60
System of a Down - 55
Hanson - 53
Collective Soul - 51
Jimi Hendrix - 49

I had to get rid of/lost a lot of my music because my old computer sucked… Most of my music comes from whatever cds we had lying around the house… I like to buy my music whenever possible, as I like to support bands I like, so I’d probably have a lot more if not for that.


#11

Beattles are my top for sure.

however if this was play count it would be a lot different. Somehow my play count got messed up and the play count on my “Tik Tok” song started exponentially increasing and not one at a time. So I have over 23,000 plays on that song alone.

play count, not number of songs, because the latter is pretty meaningless in my case

1 Bob Dylan 1532
2 The Beatles 476
3 R.E.M. 469
4 Bruce Springsteen 444
5 The Raconteurs 368
6 Bob Marley 300
7 Traveling Wilburys 236
8 Richard Thompson 178
9 Wilco 169
10 Apocalyptica 166

total play count on my itunes is 6600, just to give some perspective.
