As opposed to our favorite songs, or songs we'd like to think define our listening habits, taking a look at what a person actually listens to can be far more revealing. With that in mind, we've decided to ask a few folks to take a look at the most-played songs in their iTunes libraries and share with us the results. (See lists from Maynard James Keenan and Tim Robbins). We do this on the honor system, and we ask our subjects to share a few words about each song.

Seattle ex-pat Reggie Watts (y'all remember Hit Explosion, right?!?!?) has been making quite a name for himself in his new home of NYC, and got a big shot in the arm last year when Conan O'Brien hitched him along to his "Prohibited From Being Funny on Television" tour. Before the musician/comedian returns to town for a homecoming set, Sunday at the Neptune, we caught up with him -- as we've been known to do -- to take a look at the 10 most-played songs in his iTunes library. Here's what we got:

10. "Hands Off She's Mine," English Beat

9. "Guilty," Barbra Streisand & Barry Gibb

8. "I Can't Go For That," Hall & Oates

7. "Last Days of Disco," Yo La Tengo

6. "Bad Moon Rising," Creedence Clearwater Revival

5. "Sleep Get Your Ghosts," Buke & Gass

4. "Silly Love Songs," Paul McCartney/Wings

3. "Control I'm Here," Nitzer Ebb

2. "Martha My Dear," The Beatles

1. "The Reeling," Passion Pit
