The top 75 most played songs on my iPhone

In response to a request by @MrsdelCampo on twitter, here’s the top 75 most played songs on my iPhone & iTunes.  The count began in June of 2009, so the list is a combination of temporary obsessions from the past year and “tried and true” favorites. I suspect the songs on this list will be dramatically different in another twelve month’s time.
