Remember back in December when I announced that “You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger” by Beth Rowley from the soundtrack for “An Education” became the most played song on my iTunes?

Well, it has now broken another record on my iTunes.  It became the first song on any of my computers to cross the century mark – that is, 100 listens.

That’s me; what’s your most played song?  How many times have you listened to it?

About yesterday’s factoid regarding Beth Rowley and “You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger” from “An Education”: I listened to the song three times in a row so it would become the most played song on my iTunes and so I could get not just one, but two factoids out of it.

Congratulations to Beth Rowley and her song “You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger” for taking over the long-held #1 most played song on my iTunes from Alexandre Desplat’s “Postcards.”

It should come to no one’s surprise that this track came from a soundtrack.  I first heard the song in the trailer for the movie “An Education,” and the soothing voice of Beth Rowley immediately struck me.  I had to hear more, so I bought the whole song off iTunes.  Then, as I started listening to it on repeat, I became curious to know more about Rowley.  After hearing a few of her songs, I bought her whole debut album, “Little Dreamer,” which is truly amazing.  She has a voice similar to Norah Jones but much more angelic.

So I decided to use this factoid to shamelessly advertise Beth Rowley.  I implore you to listen to some of her songs that I have embedded here from YouTube – my two personal favorites from the album – and instantly fall in love with this up-and-coming artist.
