Weekly Music Thread: Edition Three

WMT's curators prefer not to apply strict scrutiny to the traditional definition of "a week".  As such, the third round of these is going up now.  This week, it can be iTunes Most Played Lists?  The previous computer contained a slightly embarrassing mix of Neutral Milk Hotel, American Football, Death Cab For Cutie and The Shins, a total significantly run up during an obviously lonely freshman year.  C'est la vie.  The new one, however, looks thus:

1)Animal Collective - Fireworks (18 plays)

2)Bon Iver - Skinny Love (15 plays)

3)Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey (11 plays)

4)Mazzy Star - Fade Into You (11 plays)

5)The Shins - The Past and Pending (11 plays)

6)Chris Knox - Not Given Lightly (9 plays)

7)The Kinks - Picture Book (9 plays)

8)Everybody's Down - No Age (9 plays)

9)Of Monteal - Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse (9 plays)

10)Of Montreal - Gronlandic Edit (9 plays)

11)Slowdive - Alison (9 plays)

12)Blondie - Hanging On The Telephone (8 plays)

13)Galaxie 500 - Blue Thunder (8 plays)

14)Magnetic Fields - Sweet Lovin' Man (8 plays)

15)Of Montreal - Cato As A Pun (8 plays)

16)Talking Heads - Psycho Killer (8 plays)

17)Black Rebel Motorcycle Gang - Fault Line (7 plays)

18)The Kinks - Do You Remember Walter (7 plays)

19)m83 - Kim and Jessie (7 plays)

20)Magnetic Fields - Nothing Matters When We're Dancing (7 plays)

21)Michael Jackson - Thriller (7 plays)

22)Michael Jackson - Beat It (7 plays)

23)Of Montreal - Suffer For Fashion (7 plays)

24)T. Rex - Jeepster (7 plays)

25)Yo La Tengo - Little Eyes (7 plays)


I'm not sure what this says about me, other than I'm in college and white.  I already knew that, I think...Anyone else care to offer themselves up for slaughter?  And of course, feel free to throw out stuff in general that's caught your ears lately, either in list form or even some files/links. And I know it's mostly an exercise in futility, but links to good music writing is always welcome.  Obviously, the usual bitching, moaning, of Kevin Barnes fun making and assorted assholery is encouraged.  Also: it turns out that Chris Getz doesn't really give that much thought to his entrance music.  I told him it was up to him to raise the standard, though.  So here's hoping.
