Vodkapundit asks everyone to list their top 10 most-played songs in iTunes.

So here’s mine:

Battle of the Heroes – John Williams – Star Wars III
Descent Into Mystery – Danny Elfman – Batman
Heavy Price Paid – Bungie – Halo 2
Duel of the Fates – John Williams – Star Wars I
Peril – Bungie – Halo 2
Molossus – Hans Zimmer – Batman Begins
Impend – Bungie – Halo 2
Remembrance – Bungie – Halo 2
In Amber Clad – Bungie – Halo 2
Orbit of Glass – Bungie – Halo 2

You listen to nothing but movie and game soundtracks? Well no, absolutely not. But when I am writing my books, I listen to nothing but instrumental music that fits the mood of the book I’m writing (and the mood is fairly dark and heroic). I can’t listen to music with lyrics when I write, it messes with my focus.

Out of curiosity, I filtered out soundtracks, and this is what I got:

Where The Streets Have No Name – U2
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service – The Propellerheads
Welcome Home (Sanitarium) – Metallica
Spybreak – The Propellerheads
The Shortest Straw – Metallica
The Frayed Ends of Sanity – Metallica
The Call of Ktulu – Metallica
Distintegration – The Cure
Punk Rock Girl – The Dead Milkmen
No One Lives Forever – Oingo Boingo

Metallica features prominently because of my exercise routine, which generally involves a strong, fast beat.

And the next ten:

Breaking Up The Girl – Garbage
In My Life – The Beatles
Like a Rolling Stone (Live) – Bob Dylan
Giants And The Thunder Titan – my son’s 10 second “theme song”
Justify My Love – Madonna
Ain’t No Fun – AC/DC
Don’t Crash The Ambulance – Mark Knopfler
The Voice – The Moody Blues
Ava Adore – Smashing Pumpkins
Fortress Around Your Heart – Sting

Nothing I feel particularly “shameful” about there. I am surprised by Breaking Up The Girl, though.
