The Top 10 Most-Played Songs of May 2004

May was certainly a "goofy" month by all standards. With classes ending at the end of April here in London, May began with that now infamous journey to Italy, in what was supposed to be my last hurrah in Europe before my scheduled flight home on May 6th. Things changed at the last minute, however, and the next thing I knew, I was back in London, left with more time to get myself into even more mischief and mishap. I started my internship at the Institute of Quality Assurance, and spent the rest of the month wondering what the hell it was that the company stood for. No matter, however, I am doing a good job there, doing whatever it is that I'm supposed to be working on. :-)

So, without further ado, here's my top 10 list of the past month.

10. "Seguroski" by Daddy Yankee, off the "El Cangri" album (new)

9. "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face" by Coldplay, off the "A Rush of Cold Blood to the Head" album (last month, #10)

8. "Secret" by Maroon 5, off the "Songs About Jane" album (new)

7. "Powerless" by Nelly Furtado, off the "Folklore" album (new)

6. "Hello" by Lionel Richie, off the "My Great Ones" album (new)

5. "Everytime" by Britney Spears, off the "In the Zone" album (last month, #1)

4. "No Te Detengas" by Yoskar Sarante, off the "Llora Alma Mia" album (new)

3. "Make Me Whole" by Amel Larrieux, off the "Infinite Possibilities" album (new)

2. "Not Myself" by John Mayer, off the "Room for Squares" album (last month, unranked)

1. "Try" by Nelly Furtado, off the "Folklore" album (new)

As you can see, a lot of these songs are new to the Top-10. Nelly Furtado's "Try," claimed the top spot this month by a large margin. It's just one of them tunes that you can just zone out on and contemplate on your life. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of the songs on this playlist are like that, barring, of course, "Seguroski," which is holding down the rear of the top-10. I'm sure as hell going to be bumping that track, full blast, in whatever car I drive when I get back to the States. Lionel Richie's "Hello" was played so many damn times this month by both Michelle and I on our respective listening devices. It all started off as a joke earlier on in the semester, but has since become a cult favorite between the two of us. So, if you see Michelle and I screaming, "Hello!!! Is it me you're looking for?!!", don't worry about it. We're just crazy.

John Mayer came back this month with one track I just felt like listening to a lot, "Not Myself." We'll see if he can stay on next month. On the John Mayer note, I'm happy to report that I got Michelle and Giselle on the John Mayer "Bandwagon of Self-Reflection." You want to jump on board? Start off by listening to "Comfortable" from his "Inside Wants Out" album, and work your way out. If you're in one of them moods where you feel like looking back on the past a lot, John Mayer is the fucking man.

Oh, I'm adding another award every month on this section of the Musings...

"The Song So Stupid, You Just Can't Help But Laugh" award, which goes to...

"Papi Dijo" by Aventura, off the sub-par, "Love and Hate" album.

"Papi, you baaaaadddd!"

Before I forget, everyone should take advantage of iTMS' new "Download of the Week" feature. Every Tuesday, Apple releases a song that is free for all to download. These songs are usually the kind that you really don't hear a lot on the radio, but, nonetheless, they're actually pretty good. "Try" for example, was one of those, and it's now my number 1 for the month. So, take advantage of the free, and LEGAL downloads!

By the way...5 out of the top-10 are iTMS...I'm trying!

So, until next time, take care, ya'll and remember...

Don't Steal Music. :-D
