iTunes Registry – What ya listening to?

I was looking for an application to give me some statistic on my itunes library, there seems to be a few for the Mac, but none for the PC (I tried a few but they did not do what I wanted). But I came across this website and uploaded my library file, it should work (the dame upload is taking forever).

[Update] The site seems to have quite a bit of problem with its hardware, it took several tries before I was able to upload my library. But I like what I see now that I have got it to work. It provides many interesting statistic – the most alarming one is that only 0.1% of my songs are rated, which is identical to the site users’ average. I guess most people just like listening to the music instead of rating the songs, put it another way, we are just basically all lazy…

Here is the Genre list that I wanted (but found no easy way to parse from the itunes library):

African, Afro Cuban, Alternative, Alternative & Punk, Ambient, Avantgarde, Blues, Bossa Nova, Brazilian, Cajun, Christmas, Comedy, Dance, Darkwave, Disco, Downtempo, Drum & Bass, Dub, EBM, Electro, Electronic, Electronica, Electronica/Dance, Flamenco, Folk, Funk, Glitch, Gospel, Gothic, Hard Rock, Hip Hop/Rap, Hip-Hop, House, Industrial, Industrial Metal, Jazz, Jazz Hip-Hop, Jazz Latino, Jazz-Funk, Latin, Live, Lounge, Mashup, Metal, New Wave, Podcast, Pop, Post Punk, Psychedelic, Punk, R&B, Rai, Rap, Reggae, Rock, Rock Latino, Rumba, Salsa, Ska, Soul, Soundtrack, Synthpop, Tango, Tech House, Trance, Trip-Hop, Vocal, World.

68 of them (including sub-geres), which is quite a bit higher than the average user on the site, but then again I always knew that my taste is much more eclectic than most, so no surprise there…
