I don't think iTunes has that as an option, but in all likelyhood if it is a most played song then it probably was during this year.:)

Still don't really get it, but I guess I can assume it means top three of all time, then.

Only had this eMac for about 6 months, explaining the fairly low play counts. you should have seen the play counts on my old PC which I had for 6 years...:D

Maybe a better question to ask is:

"Most played song you bought this year....", this way you actually get to answer your current question to more accuracy.

1. Make sure the "Date Added" column is visible in the main song list. This should allow you to see when each song was added to your iTunes library.

2. Create a new playlist. Name it "2009" or something.

3. Sort the songs in your iTunes library by "Date Added". Highlight all the songs that were added in 2009, and drag them to your new playlist, "2009"

4. Make sure the "Play Count" column is visible so that you can sort by play count.

5. In your "2009" playlist, sort your songs by Play Count.



And that's why I'm so awesome.

To be fair, my number one play "song" is actually and iTunes radio station...Got Radio - "Piano Perfect". It's my study music channel :) Numbers are low too, because I listen to a lot of Pandora. I have Pandora Jam, the desktop Pandora player.

I've had the same iTunes account since 2003, so I don't think that's a very valid assumption... there are songs I listened to some 100 times in 2004 that I listen to maybe once every three months now. :p

I'm guessing I've listened to Love Story and You Belong With Me a sad number of times this year, however. :o

Or you could just make a smart playlist with the following parameters:
Date Added is after 12/31/2008
Date Added is before 01/01/2010.

It is indeed. But it's pretty much the only track I like off of that album. Old stuff was better. :p

Hmm, I listen to albums, not songs, so my top 2009 play count ends up being several songs from the same album(s) in a row. Naturally, my most listened to albums are those that were released early in the year, so the results are quite meaningless.

However, my top albums of 2009 can be found here:

Except that isn't an algorithm for the most played songs of 2009, it's one for most played song added in 2009. There's a high chance that I have listened to a song I added two years ago the most this year.

Glad to see "Roses" made the list. What a hilarious song!

My music taste depends on what I'm doing like driving or studying so playlists limit what get plays and what don't. But still a wide variety of music and genres thanks to my friends influences and concerts.

Darn. My harddrive died this year and I had to reinstall everything. Date added: All after October this year.

This is definitely not accurate, so much of my most played songs were added before 2009, in fact these are numbers: 35, 43 and 52 of the most played songs that have been played sometime in 2009.
