- Chocolate (Edinburgh Live Version) by Snow Patrol. Several years ago, before Grey's Anatomy made Snow Patrol a household name, I bought a couple of their songs after reading a recommendation in Newsweek. I don't know what I expected to be the most played song in my iTunes library, but it wasn't this. I have added it to seven different playlists, which probably explains why it comes up in the rotation often.
- My Savior My God by Aaron Shust. I can definitely understand why this is a top-five song. I usually play songs from my "Favorites" playlist or "All Songs by Artists" and Aaron Shust is the first artist list in both playlists.
- You're Worthy of My Praise by Jeremy Camp. Before Jeremy Camp ever released his first album, he traveled to Cork, Ireland, as part of a mission trip and performed at the end of the week. I loved him! When I started hearing his songs on the radio in Lubbock, I couldn't believe he found success so quickly. I love to rock out to this song! Laugh all you want.
- Be Near by Shane and Shane. Love Shane and Shane. Thanks, Janie, for introducing them to me. B Near is from my favorite Shane and Shane album, Carry Away. It's not my favorite Shane and Shane song though.
- Lubbock or Leave It by the Dixie Chicks. My dad calls me a traitor and a communist for liking the Dixie Chicks. I will always like the Dixie Chicks. I like this song and this album, but I don't know if I would include this song in a list of my favorite Dixie Chicks songs, and yet it rotates through my iPod regularly. My favorite Dixie Chicks song, Top of the World, has played 22 fewer times than this song. Go figure
All in all, I'm a little surprised by the songs on this list. I guess this is what you get when you listen to your music on the shuffle setting constantly.
