So here's a nifty idea. Go to your media library and find your top played song. Find out how much time it runs in seconds. Multiply it by total play count. Convert that into hours or minutes to find out how long you've spent listening to your favorite song.

For example, my top played song is Daughter of the Moon by Insomnium. It clocks in at 6 minutes and 10 seconds and has a play count of 57 (i've been using iTunes for roughly a year).

So;

- 6:10 is equal to 370 seconds.

- 370 seconds times 57 equals 21090 seconds.

- 21090 seconds divided by 60 equals 351.5 minutes, which is equal to 5.858333... hours.

So, in total, I've listened to that one song for 5 hours, 51 minutes, and 30 seconds.

How about you guys?

My most played song is "I'll Cry For You" by Europe

So lets see...

5:21 = 321 seconds

321 x 9 = 2889

2889/60 = 48.15

So is that 48.15 hours or 48.15 minutes?

EDIT: By the way, I dont use Itunes too often (just to put the songs on my Itouch)

Slayer - Raining Blood according to my last.fm profile .

254 seconds long x 92 listens = 23368 seconds
23368/60 = 389.47 = 389 minutes 28 seconds
389/60 = 6.48 = 6 hours 29 minutes 28 seconds

I rounded up a lot on the way through and I'm terrible at maths so it's probably wrong.

My most played song is "Carpe" by Russian Circles

It's been played (since I changed over computers and been tracked by Last.fm): 109 times.

"Carpe" - 9:01

9:01 = 541 seconds • 109 plays = 58,969 seconds

58,969 ÷ 60 = 982.82 minutes

982.82 = 16.38 hours

16 hours and roughly 26 minutes and some change.

A song for our fathers by Explosions in the Sky, 148 times it's 8 minutes 14 seconds.
So 8 minutes 14 seconds are 494 seconds X 148 it's 73,112/ 60 it's 1,218.53 minutes that's 20 hours and 30.8 minutes.
But I have a longer song that I have listened to 8 times less that's First breath after coma by Explosions in the Sky it's 9:33 I've listened to that 140 times that's 583 seconds X 140 times it's 75,600 seconds 1,260 seconds 21 hours exact.
