The computer doesn't lie: Uncle Stevie counts down the most-played songs from his iTunes library
Any amateur musicologist can make a top 20 list; I did myself, not so long ago, and I'm still hearing from people who feel that putting Connie Francis' ''Stupid Cupid'' on a list of the best rock songs ever was an act of insanity. Then it occurred to me that I had a less subjective source for such a list, and that was my very own iTunes library. iTunes is really nothing but a great big computer jukebox, and like the jukes that always sat in the coffee shops and soda fountains of my misspent youth, bubbling colored lights and pumping out the beat it keeps track of every song it plays.
So here's another list, not of songs I claim I like, but ones I actu¬ally play when I'm working, pretending to work, or just goofing around. It's your Uncle Stevie's real top 20, in all its naked truth. And you may be relieved to find Connie Francis is not on it. The number in parentheses is the number of plays.
20. Rock Your Baby
George McCrae (19)
Divine falsetto, the spirit of '70s soul, and music to have sexy daydreams by.
