Question Of The Day: How Many Songs Do You Have?

By Will Oliver, April 20th 2010 — with 34 comments Other

I was looking through my itunes collection and I realized that I have a lot of music. A lot of stuff that I could go without. So I deleted some, added some of the new stuff that came today, etc. I was still left with a pretty absurd number, and wanted to know your figures. So here is my question of the day: How many songs do you have on itunes? How much space does it take up? Leave a comment with your answer below.

I’ll go first: 13,263 (the sad part is that I trimmed it down earlier today), 84.03 GB, 36 days of music.

    I added a bunch today, and am terrible at getting rid of music (I always manage to convince myself that I’ll listen to it someday), but…

    15415 items, 83.94 GB, approx. 42 days of music (that includes a few music videos)

  • Jon

    I do need to do a spring cleaning, but I use Winamp to play my music and iTunes for my iPod/iPhone and they both report differently.

    iTunes – 19,820 songs | 52 Days | 140.5GB
    Winamp – 20,072 songs | 1,234 Artists | 2,017 Albums

  • Kahron

    18,527 songs…..113.78 GB…..that is just what is actually on the hard drive for this Macbook I’m using. I have another hard drive filled with stuff I don’t listen to much anymore: old Tupac, 80’s music, Wilco.

  • RaRaRadiation

    I wish it was all great music

  • robotor

    10060, (323 hours, 32 minutes) after trimming down. but it’s not the number that counts, it’s what you actually have and listen to that’s important, is what I think.

  • Jason Petersen

    I recently converted everything down to 128kps. So I have 30,676 songs, 123.84GB of music, 84.5 days.
