mirrors truth is an awesome songStill 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...
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.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.
Or you could just make a smart playlist with the following parameters: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.
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.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.
