A Whole Bunch of Boring Statistics on Favorites of 2016

Just in case, you're a big number nerd and just curious, here's a whole lot of info on my websites for 2016.


As I stated in the actual post, the songs for the podcast were picked by looking up which song - on that particular podcast - was viewed the most on the Iowa Music Showcase Songs post.

I put the most viewed non-Christmas song on the podcast, because the 9 of the top 10 songs posts were Christmas tunes. You Iowans like your Christmas music! And, quite frankly, that's totally okay with me!

But for those curious, here the closest thing I have to a top ten list...

THE TEN MOST VIEW POSTS ON IOWA MUSIC SHOWCASE SONGS
10. Ep 39 - Song 4: "Christmas Rock" by Slaughterhouse 6
9. Ep 39 - Song 7: "Happy New Year" by Austin Taft
8. Ep 37 - Song 2: "Seance" by Rhonda is a Dead Bitch
7. Ep 40 - Song 3: "Hatin on Santa" by Rachel Feldmann
6. Ep 39 - Song 2: "Hark! The Herald Angels" by Ryan Sheeler
5. Ep 38 - Song 5: "In the Bleak Midwinter" by Tina Haase Findlay
4. Ep 38 - Song 4: "Mistletoe and Magic" by Tammy Edwards
3. Ep 40 - Song 8: "Carol of the Bells" by Shikimo
2. Ep 38 - Song 3: "O Come O Come Emanuel" by Dagmar
1. Ep 38 - Song 1: "O Holy Night" by Jonny Lipford



The most viewed post - IN 2016 - came FROM 2015, the Jimi Scribner dedication, which was made when he was still battling the cancer. But last year, the cancer won.  And many people listened to the podcast I made the year before.

But if it provided them with some comfort in a troubling time, then I was glad if the podcast helped.

I must say a few things before I go.

One - Kinda disappointed that my most popular non-podcast post was one that didn't feature any Iowa music. It was all about bands that sound like they come from Iowa, but don't! But hey, if it brings people to this website, hopefully some will check out the bands featured here that do come from Iowa!

Two - You guys really like Halloween and Christmas! And that's cool, cus so do I!


Well, here's looking to Year 3 of Iowa Music Showcase. Hope to see you all at our live show Feb 4, at Lefty's Live Music in Des Moines!
