Thanks to everyone for voting on which song was my most played after 3 weeks on the road. I was surprised to see Bob Marley's “Three Little Birds” come from behind recently to list as #1 with 12 votes, thus overtaking “Free” by Phish.
Of course neither came close to “Snow” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It held a 10-play lead after 3 weeks, and still holds a commanding lead after 5 weeks. Overall, my music selection has been mostly chill stuff, with some faster/harder/louder music for the Tongariro Crossing.
Picking an mp3 player which allows me to make playlists on the fly was a great move. I'm naming the playlists to match my experience or emotion at the time, and so I almost relive past experiences when I go back and listen to them. For example, I made a “bye bye” playlist for my departure from the USA, a “chill” playlist for early in my trip when I was feeling anxious, and a NYE 08 playlist for my recovery.
