Oh my...that's almost embarassing. I can explain Nos. 1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 14 and 18...they're all songs i learned to play on the ukulele, therefore the repeated listenings are understandable -- although following that logic, i don't know why Just A Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody and/or I Wanna Be Like You by Louis Prima don't show up.

But discounting the ukulele songs, the real #1 on the list isn't Before They Make Me Run, but Sour Milk Sea because it's on there twice (duplicate songs) and their total listenings is 29 while the Keith Richard composition's total is 23.

Regardless of any "cool" gained by repeated Velvets, early Who and Link listenings i guess you can tell i have a soft spot for The Beatles. And what's up with #4?!
