2. PJ Harvey - 75 songs
3. Smashing Pumpkins - 43 songs
4. The Breeders - 36 songs

yep, I listen to way too much music without a fancy phone! AND, I don't have to pay for the fancy phone service.

Never got into digital music but i guess i do have SOI on my phone and Invisible.  I do have my amazon streaming app which is just from CDs and Vinyl i've bought from Amazon which came with free streaming.  Lost of music on there that was gifts for family members who have less than stellar tastes in music.

I will just give figures for my entire iTunes library because my devices only give a small snapshot so aren't really representative. Couldn't help myself, did a top 10.

1. U2 - 374 (includes a ridiculous collection of remixes and 116 non album studio tracks. Strictly not counting live stuff either.)
2. Radiohead - 77
=3 David Bowie - 71
=3 PJ Harvey - 71
5. James - 70
6. Bob Dylan - 64
7. Blondie - 59
8. Arcade Fire - 50
9. Badly Drawn Boy - 49
=10. Brian Eno - 46
=10. Doves - 46

They have 22 studio albums and multiple live/compilation/fan club albums. My collection only accounts for about 3/4 of their output, as I don't really pay much attention their children's albums. They're very prolific and still going strong.

My iPod has 8,631 songs and that's not accounting for all my music. When added up it would apparently take about a month to listen to my collection from start finish. I think I may have a problem.

That's why I still love having an iPod. My phone can't store all my music and I like being have to have everything readily available. I know dedicated MP3 players are antiquated in 2020 but I just can't let mine go.

I have a 256GB microSD card in my phone.

I rarely keep any more than 10% of it filled at any given time.

No need to with Spotify on my phone.
