...and I'm half way there!! This has been a really fun on-going project. Over the last two years I've been working on listening to every single song I own. Albums, singles, box sets, Deluxe Edition bonus tracks, EPs, digital-only store exclusives, concerts on CD, etc etc. Of course, most of these titles got played a lot when I first bought them, but others are purchased and sat around and didn't get much love. So I decided to start fresh and hear everything at least once. And not just as background music, but listening and focusing on the music. In fact, I've been rating every single song as I go (I then add a metadata tag when I've heard and rated that title so I can easily sort out heard/unheard titles). I'm exactly half way through as of today! I've attentively listened to 1,675 titles and have 1,675 titles to go. === Because I'm listening in JRiver and make extensive use of tags and categories, let's look at some numbers! How many songs have I heard so far? 17,601 songs totaling 53.2 days of uninterrupted listening (took me about 700 days, or roughly two hours per day on average) What do I mean by 1,675 titles? I consider any individual release a title. Whether it's an album, single, EP, or box set... it's one title. So let's look at a break down of titles... 897 Albums (includes box sets but I should go through and tag those separately) 490 Singles/EPs (the line is so thin I just lumped singles, maxi-singles, and EPs together) 79 Concert Albums (MTV Unplugged, Live at the..., you get the idea) 76 Greatest Hits Comps 75 Album Bonus Discs (for example, the second disc in a 2-disc Deluxe Edition, I break these out from the main album) 25 Soundtracks (usually for exclusive non-album tracks) 18 Remix Albums (The Cure's Mixed Up, NIN's Further Down the Spiral, etc) 12 Various Artists Comps (Hard to Find 45s on CD, MTV Party to Go...) 11 Bootlegs (not a big bootleg guy, but I have a couple, these are all concerts and are also counted in the Concert Albums above) 3 Tribute Albums (Nativity in Black, For the Masses...) Am I a vinyl or CD or download guy? Overwhelmingly CD... CD - 1,322 titles - 14,842 songs (every single one ripped by me in dbPoweramp with AccurateRip) Download - 285 titles - 2,242 songs (mostly hi-res from HDTracks/Pono/7digital, etc, only 140 Lossy songs (or less than 1% of all songs), usually iTunes or AmazonMP3 store exclusives) BluRay Pure Audio/DVD-A/SACD - 39 titles - 441 songs (ripped by me) Vinyl - 11 titles - 26 songs (needledropped by Deep Sky Audio, awesome service, these are all 7" and 12" singles that have not been released on CD/digital yet) Cassette - 3 titles - 50 songs (I indexed the Radiohead OKNOTOK cassette, so that throws off the average song count here) Most owned artists? None of these discographies are complete yet, but ranked by total number of hours of each artist owned... Pink Floyd - 74 titles - 841 songs - 67.2 hours of music - 25.1 GBs of data The Smashing Pumpkins - 49 titles - 628 songs - 44.8 hours of music - 19.7 GBs of data Tori Amos - 58 titles - 555 songs - 40.5 hours of music - 13.2 GBs of data (no hi-res here cuts down on data) Prince - 44 titles - 502 songs - 40.0 hours of music - 20.0 GBs of data David Bowie - 40 titles - 484 songs - 35.1 hours of music - 13.5 GBs of data (just started getting into Bowie over the last month, but bought both of the recent box sets, a bunch of CD singles, and a few individual albums, really loving the vast majority of it! why did I wait so long on Bowie?!) Honorable mention here (based on the most played time overall): Michael Jackson - 46 titles (many CD single variations during Dangerous and HIStory) - 362 songs - 30.7 hours of music - 13.5 GBs of data === So that's it for now, I have a ton of other stats, including releases per year, genre, special collections like MoFi and Audio Fidelity releases, etc etc, but this is already too long. I wanted to record these numbers so I can come back when I finish and update/compare. Of course I'm only half way at this exact moment, that'll change the next time I check the mail box, I have a dozen pre-orders in for new stuff being released this year, and I'm still picking up used discs like they're going out of style. Have you heard every song in your collection? If not, do you have any desire to?
