What were your most-played songs of 2006?

1673__beyonce_l_1December is the month of top 10 lists — the best of this, the worst of that — and to be honest, I tend to gobble ‘em up like McDonald’s fries the morning after a particularly rowdy bender. (Ba-dah-dah-dah-dah, I’m lovin’ it.) Anyhow, today, RuPaul’s blog has a post called "Albums I Listened to Most in 2006," which got me thinking about that nifty "Top 25 Most Played" songs feature on my iPod. And then I thought, "OK, I’m going to post mine on PopWatch," quickly followed by a paranoid fit of "They’re all gonna laugh at you," and then just as quickly by, "How would that differ from any of your other music-related items?" And so, it is in that spirit that I present my 10 Most-Listened-To Songs of 2006. I’m not saying they’re the best, or the coolest, and certainly not the deepest, but they made my daily commute a lot more bearable, and helped me perfect my signature walk. Now mind you, I’ve only had my iPod since August, so it’s really a second-half of 2006 list for me, but… oh I’m just going to shut up and start the diva-heavy countdown.

10. "I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’," Scissor Sisters
9. "Like a Feather," Nikka Costa
8. "SexyBack," Justin Timberlake
7. "Free," Mya
6. "Train," Goldfrapp
5. "Bed of Roses," Jody Watley featuring 4Hero
4. "My Fix," Lina
3. "London Bridge," Fergie
2. "Suga Mama," Beyoncé
1. "Freakum Dress," Beyoncé

OK, PopWatchers, now it’s your turn: What were your most-played songs of 2006?

    I got really into MF Doom’s “herbs and Spices” collection, the Danger Doom Album (Talib Kwali’s “Old School” is top notch stuff), the second Gorillaz album, Pharrell’s “Beautiful”, the Goldigger song, some old punk tunes (Black Flag’s “Tv Party”, and “Do you want to Touch me” by Joan Jett). Of course, “Crazy” by Gnarl’s Barkeley. The Chrome Children album’s totally blown me away as well in the last few days. Lord help me I am loving beats these days!
    Ugly Betty got me into Maxine Nightingales “get it right back to where it started from”

    Does it make me officially obsessed with B that my top 25 includes six songs from B-Day (including both “Get Me Bodied” and “Get Me Bodied (Extended Version)”
    How many days until Dreamgirls??

  • brandonk

    I tend to stick a CD in my car CD player and listen to it for a month or more. The ones I recall doing that with this year are:
    Scissor Sisters, “Ta-Dah”
    Madonna, “Confessions on a Dance Floor”
    Christina Aguilera, “Back to Basics”
    Bette Midler, “Cool Yule”

    I was just saying how I’ve had only a few albums on repeat this whole year! They are:
    Scissor Sisters “Ta Dah”
    Christina Aguilera “Back to Basics”
    Madonna “Confessions on a Dance Floor”
    Justin Timberlake “FutureSex/LoveSounds”
    Pink “I’m Not Dead”
    Nelly Furtado “Loose”
    Dixie Chicks “Taking the Long Way”
    We might as well add Gwen Stefani’s “The Sweet Escape” to that list, because I’ve been listening to it on repeat for a week now.
    I never got into Ms. Beyonce’s new album. Sorry Mike!
