What were your most-played songs of 2006?

Posted on


1673__beyonce_l_1December is the month of top 10 lists — the best of this, the worst of that — and to be honest, I tend to gobble ’em up like McDonald’s fries the morning after a particularly rowdy bender. (Ba-dah-dah-dah-dah, I’m lovin’ it.) Anyhow, today, RuPaul’s blog has a post called “Albums I Listened to Most in 2006,” which got me thinking about that nifty “Top 25 Most Played” songs feature on my iPod. And then I thought, “OK, I’m going to post mine on PopWatch,” quickly followed by a paranoid fit of “They’re all gonna laugh at you,” and then just as quickly by, “How would that differ from any of your other music-related items?” And so, it is in that spirit that I present my 10 Most-Listened-To Songs of 2006. I’m not saying they’re the best, or the coolest, and certainly not the deepest, but they made my daily commute a lot more bearable, and helped me perfect my signature walk. Now mind you, I’ve only had my iPod since August, so it’s really a second-half of 2006 list for me, but… oh I’m just going to shut up and start the diva-heavy countdown.

10. “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’,” Scissor Sisters
9. “Like a Feather,” Nikka Costa
8. “SexyBack,” Justin Timberlake
7. “Free,” Mya
6. “Train,” Goldfrapp
5. “Bed of Roses,” Jody Watley featuring 4Hero
4. “My Fix,” Lina
3. “London Bridge,” Fergie
2. “Suga Mama,” Beyoncé
1. “Freakum Dress,” Beyoncé

OK, PopWatchers, now it’s your turn: What were your most-played songs of 2006?
