2005, The Year That Was
Posted in Honey on 01.20.06

These stats are from when we changed over to prewarblues.org in May – but really they are from around late June when I stopped deleting songs (shhh!) though I should clean the system out soon. Anyway I love stats, so hopefully this year google will hook me up with a anayltics account.

Top 10 downloads for the year 2005.

1. Billie Holiday – Don’t Explain

2. Big Mama Thornton – Yes, Baby
3. Mose Andrews – 10lb Hammer
4. Precious Bryant – You Don’t Want Me No More
5. Ozella Jones – I Been A Bad Bad Girl Prisoner Blues
6. Roosevelt Graves – I Woke Up (With My Mind On Jesus)
7. Pete Johnson – Roll ‘Em
8. Trixie Smith – You’ve Got To Beat Me To Keep Me
9. Ethel Waters – Get Up Off Your Knees
10. Bumble Bee Slim – If Blues Was Whisky

Wow, Ethel Waters is only number 9 on the list? If you were able to keep track of how many times a song was played after it’s been downloaded, it would surpass Lady Day because it feels like I’ve been playing the song non stop. I’m loving it!

Great to see Ozella Jones and Trixie Smith on that list.

You have to have a privacy policy on your site to use Google Analytics. I saw some other requirement (that I don’t remember what was) that I didn’t meet when I was considering it.

If they send me another invitation code I’ll pass it along to you.

It’s really wonderful to see the number of women blues artists on the list – I remember when I first started the blog, no one would ever download the female blues songs, now the top songs for the year were mostly ladies.

I just got my Google Analytics invitation.

As mentioned earlier, they require you to have a privacy policy. They have some other requirements here you might want to look over: http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html

At any rate, email me if you still want it and I’ll hook you up.

[…] Blind Roosevelt Graves. It’s so nice to hear a song about Jesus that doesn’t make me break out in hives. “Woke Up This Morning (with my mind on Jesus)” can be found via the excellent Pre-War Blues. […]

Congratulations, looks super cute. As for the blues. Try and do something noamrl’ that would make you feel better whether that be having a haircut (with someone holding baby of course!), having a shower, going for a 10 minute walk alone. It’s surprisingly powerful. Also, always remember that it’s the hormones doing it to you and they will equalise x
