I took Maya over to the park behind the BART station in Union City, then to the Dog Park. A fun time on a warm January day.
Here is the list of my 30 most played songs of 2013, according to iTunes play data. You can see that “Axis” was my most played song, including a total of 91 plays across all versions and remixes. The placement of Pet Shop Boys, Men without Hats, Franz Ferdinand, and Ixtahuele shouldn’t be a surprise since I blogged about all of them.
I listened to a total of 1836 songs at least once. That’s the largest total since I started tracking this statistic, and is quite a bit higher than past years 2009 (1431), 2010 (1539), 2011 (1337), and 2012 (1479).

This is obviously very skewed to the Synthesizer music that came via the new albums from Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode, and my concert attendance where Men without Hats played. I resolve to listen to more rock music in 2014, but some of that’s dependent on what new music gets released.
