I don't listen to music straight from iTunes very often, plus I had to start from scratch when my hard drive died in May, but this is what I've got.

1. X-Ray Spex - I Am A Cliche
2. The Dismemberment Plan - Girl O'Clock
3. Death Grips - Get Got
4. X-Ray Spex - Oh Bondage! Up Yours!
5. Japandroids - Fire's Highway
6. Passion Pit - Hideaway
7. Math the Band - Four to Six
8. Death Grips - The Fever (Aye Aye)
9. Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music
10. Wolf Parade - Grounds for Divorce

I just now realize how many of those are from albums that came out this summer. Huh.

I reinstalled my OS too recently for this to work with my computer, but on my old 2GB ipod it's an interesting mix of songs that have managed to avoid getting culled to clear space.

Zelda Reorchestrated - Ocarina of Time End Credits
George Harrison - Let it Down
Talking Heads - What a Day That Was
Decemberists - When the War Came
Beatles - If I Needed Someone
Flaming Lips - Do You Realize
Paranoia Agent OST - Yume no Shima Shinen Kouen
Tom Petty - Running Down a Dream
Beatles - You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

Because my total play counts get erased every time I format my OS (which happens quite a bit), I'm going to use my Google play music counts. And judging by the rest of my total play counts, I seem to only be listening to Elephant 6 music at the moment.

1. ゆず - 少年
2. Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
3. The Apples In Stereo - Please
4. The New Pornographers - The Electric Version
5. The Olivia Tremor Control - Hideway
6. They Might Be Giants - Spoiler Alert
7. Streetlight Manifesto - Point/Counterpoint
8. Bomb The Music Industry! -Bomb The Music Industry! (And Action Action) (And Refused)
9. NICO Touches The Walls - Aurora
10. Descendents - Everything Sucks

From my iTunes

1. Tegan and Sara - I Was Married
2. Tegan and Sara - The Con
3. Tegan and Sara - Knife Going In
4. Tegan and Sara - Hop a Plane
5. The Shins - It's Only Life
6. Tegan and Sara - Relief Next to Me
7. Jonathan Coulton - The World Belongs to You
8. The Shins - The Rifle's Spiral
9. The Shins - Simple Song
10. The Shins - No Way Down

EDIT: Apparently, my top ~50 are all Tegan and Sara, Jonathan Coulton and The Shins. And Coulton and The Shins are just one album each. Of course, I listen to more music on my iPod than my laptop, but still, this is probably indicative of my needing to listen to more varied music.

Same here, and apparently when I did so I disabled tracking so I don't really know what it would be anyway.

Man, pence is good people.

This is just since the start of the year, I think:

Ben Folds Five - Amelia Bright
The Lucksmiths - Transpontine
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - Roberta C.
Juusyo Hutei Musyoku - I Wanna Be Your BEATLES
Bend Over Boyfriend - The Kids Are All Gay (I think the Young Untold are the same band, or at least the same singer, but this live version isn't a patch on the one on this)
The Cannanes - Overwhelmed (couldn't find this online, so here's Frightening Thing, which is also pretty great)
Camera Obscura - The Sun On His Back
Darren Hanlon - Happiness is a Chemical (this was kind of a surprise. I like it, but it's not my favourite Dazza song)
The Lucksmiths - Frisbee
The Pastels/Tenniscoats - Song For A Friend

I have the same caveats as everyone else though, which are that I do most of my listening on a portable device and I've also lost my playcounts numerous times over the years for various reasons.

The real list would include more Neil Young and more K-pop, among other things.

I'm really happy with what my #1 listing turned out to be, though. One of my very favorite songs of the past decade.

This is funny, iTunes says that I only ever listen to two different albums. And I think it's pretty much right because I've only had iTunes for like 2 months at this point. You've probably already heard all these if you've been in TR with me, but if not, and you like some good video game music, click a few links.

1. Freon World - Shatter OST
2. Krypton Garden - Shatter OST
3. Super VVVVVVeat Boy - Big Giant Circles
4. Kinetic Harvest - Shatter OST
5. Aurora - Shatter OST
6. Flicker - Big Giant Circles + Chris Geehan
7. Chips Ahoy Mateys - Big Giant Circles
8. Katana Blaster - Big Giant Circles
9. BGC418 - Big Giant Circles + C418
10. Buzzsaw - Big Giant Circles + Zircon
