    i find it interesting that last week, shenandoah was the 2nd most played song, with half as many as 1st place, irish heartbeat. however, in the last 6 months, shenandoah is 9th place with about a quarter as many plays as first place (irish heartbeat again). any guesses why? or maybe just no reason.
