Now Playing Tracks

Counting Genesis by the Song

Just for hahas, I decided to take a look at my last.fm charts to see how the albums of my favorite band fell in line after having their plays tallied from May of 2005 when I started keeping track. There are some surprises in how things have played out, and this list is not to be interpreted as how they stack up in terms of my most favorite to my least favorite; it is merely which ones are played from the most. (Case in point: my favorite album Wind & Wuthering came in tenth.) This also only counts what I listen to while sitting at my computer; what I listen to on my home stereo (or in my car) is not a part of this tally.

I am a fan of Genesis in all of its configurations and I don’t play favorites to any particular “era”, so some may find this list perplexing at best or offensive at worst.

This list is not complete plays of albums, but which albums individual songs are played from the most, and is not equal to how I would rate them from most to least favorite.

My Most Played From Genesis Studio Albums: May 2005 - October 2014

  1. The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
  2. We Can’t Dance
  3. Invisible Touch
  4. A Trick of the Tail
  5. …and then there were three…
  6. Trespass
  7. Abacab
  8. Nursery Cryme
  9. Genesis
  10. Wind & Wuthering
  11. …Calling All Stations…
  12. Selling England by the Pound
  13. From Genesis to Revelation
  14. Foxtrot
  15. Duke

…and have I mentioned that this is not a favorites ranking? Just to make it clear. It’s purely objective play counts, mostly from how often the songs appear during shuffle play of my entire music library.

"Balamb Garden"
Nobuo Uematsu
Final Fantasy VIII

From the only Final Fantasy game (of those I have played) I’ve started but haven’t been able to finish (blasted Junction system and getting stuck in one of the final stages!) comes this fantastic piece of music. In fact, much of the music from this game is quite good. I just haven’t been able to fully crack the battle and leveling system even after two attempts… -_-
