“Elvis Song Of The Year” for 2010

According to iTunes, out of 1,439 Elvis tracks, the one I played most often this year was: “Any Day Now” on 1969’s From Elvis In Memphis.

I listened to 6,749 Elvis songs using iTunes or my iPod in 2010 (including duplicates). That’s an average of 18 Elvis songs a day. Elvis is by no means the only artist I listen to, though.

Out of 2,694 non-Elvis tracks, my most played song this year was: “Halo” by Beyoncé on 2008’s I Am… Sasha Fierce.

Overall, I listened to 15,964 songs using iTunes or my iPod this year. That’s 44 songs a day. My daily average last year was 43, so at least I am consistent.

No matter how you cut the numbers, that’s a lot of music. The scary part is, that doesn’t even include my CD spins – which would probably add another 15 songs a day.

  1. Wow, what a surprise!…Any Day Now by both Chuck Jackson & Elvis ( in this sequence) are the songs I have listened to the most this year too!
    Happy new year everybody!


    • What are the odds of that happening? We’ll have to compare notes again at the end of next year.

      Chuck Jackson’s 1962 version is at least as good as the 1969 Elvis version. Have you heard Jackson’s 1967 Elvis tribute album Dedicated To The King? The highlight is probably “Don’t Be Cruel.” I found the CD version on Amazon earlier this year (paired with the album “Chuck Jackson On Tour”). Definitely worth checking out.

      Thanks for posting. Happy new year!


  2. I recently found your blog and thoroughly enjoy reading your opinions and insights on all things Elvis. Thank you so much for TCB’ing with your blog and I look forward to reading more from the “Mystery Train” blog in 2011!!
