ok, so i’m sitting here at work, and i should probably be working. but instead of in addition to working i am making a list of some of the 5-star songs on my itunes. so if I were stuck on a desert island, would i want a disc of all these songs? Well i looked at the play counts of some of these songs, and they are less than many of the lower rated songs. I guess I just don’t want to wear them out.
