    And the whores hike up their skirts and fish for drug-store prophylactics
    With their mouths cut just like razor blades

    Right. Except I'll just do what I have the most scrobbled on here, since my media player's play counts got fucked up at some point. :p

    - Sugar Free Jazz: 4. (I knew that one would be pretty high.)
    - Soft Serve: 7. (Again, predictable.)
    - Disseminated: 22. (Huh. At least one is fairly less popular. :p)

    5. Beck
    - Girl: 2. (Jesus Christ.)
    - Heaven Hammer (Missing): Not even on the charts. That's what I'm talking about.
    - MTV Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack: Also not on the charts. Apparently I am a weird Beck listener. :p

    6. Aimee Mann
    - Wise Up: 2. (Oh geez.)
    - Invisible Ink: 25. (Wow, that kinda surprises me. I thought it'd be higher.)
    - Nothing Is Good Enough: 10. (Kinda saw that coming.)

    7. Stone Temple Pilots
    - Creep: 3. (Knew that one was gonna be up there.)
    - Lady Picture Show: 12. (Though that one wouldn't be as high.)
    - Interstate Love Song: 2. (Well, at least I didn't have the top song.)

    8. Imogen Heap
    - Come Here Boy: 14. (Hmm.)
    - Daylight Robbery: 9. (Wow.)
    - Hide And Seek: 1. (Seriously, though, this song is AMAZING. There's a reason it's #1.)

    9. Cat Power
    - The Greatest: 1. (Geez.)
    - Cross Bones Style: 26. (Definitely the song that hooked me on her.)
    - Willie: 11. (Yeah yeah.)

    10. Well, I don't even have any of her tracks in my top tracks, so there. :p
