Liner Notes
Red Guitar Pick
The FATpick Blog

This month's stats are based on elapsed clock time for all songs played in FATpick during March 2021. ("Clock time" as opposed to "media time". I.e,. playing a song at 1/2 speed accounts for twice as much clock time as playing a song the full tempo.)

Play time for all tracks are aggregated into the song total.

See last month's post for the February 2021 chart.

10 Most Played NEW Songs

FATpick's song catalog is growing steadily. Over 200 tabs were shared this month - 150% more than the previous month's total. This is probably a factor in the 70% month-over-month churn in the top 10 songs.

Here are the 10 most played songs (by clock time) that were added in March of 2021. I think you'll agree they demonstrate a pleasing diversity of genres, styles and time-periods.

Rank Artist Song Album Overall Rank
1 Highly Suspect Serotonia 5
2 Arctic Monkeys Do I Wanna Know? 10
3 Judy Garland Somewhere Over The Rainbow Wizard of OZ
4 Queen It's Late News Of The World
5 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Pure Imagination
6 John Denver Country Roads
7 The B-52s Love Shack Cosmic Thing
8 Motley Crue Shout at the Devil Decade of Decadance 81-91
9 Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit Nevermind
10 The Rolling Stones Paint It Black Aftermath

Note that we haven't pro-rated or normalized play time based on when in the month the song was first imported. A song that was shared on March 1st has had 30 days to accumulate plays, while a song shared on the 30th has only had one day.
