What do you have loaded on your iPod?

Posted by ClearSkies on January 10, 2007, at 19:15:53

aka, "what music are you listening to now?"

My shiny new iPod Shuffle has
bellydance music
Loreena McKinnitt
Mo' Horizons
Bebel Gilberto
Zuco 103
Joni Mitchell from various decades

I've been in a Brazillian music frenzy for years now. I love the melodies and I sing along, having no idea what the words mean. It is absolutely therapeutic for me to make noise. I love being alone with my iPod. If someone comes into the room, I immediately pause what I'm listening to and feel slightly guilty, like I've been caught doing something naughty.

Anyone else? What are you listening to?

I do the same thing!!!!!

I haven't actually changed my music in forever. It takes so long to download things on my computer here, that by the time I've got them downloaded I don't want them anymore. Hence the same songs for the past 6 months. At least I know ALL the words ;-)

But WHEN I get one, I would put Bjork, Radiohead, Muse, and any old thing that sounds good to me. I sing with the radio in my car constantly (I've had co-workers catch me at it and tease me later). I listen to Hip Hop on the way to work and Oldies on the way home. The Hip Hop gets me going in the morning - I love Snoop Dog, Ludacris, Beyonce, 50 Cent, Chingy and many others whose names I don't know half the time. And then I listen to oldies on the way home which I sing at the top of my lungs, which seems to relieve stress. I love Classic Soul like the Supremes and Barry White, and 70's songs from the rocking to the cheesy. Of course the 80's are awesome as well, I was singing with Missing Persons on the way home tonight. And then the Cure. I love music! I couldn't imagine life without it. I so need an MP3 player.

What do I have on my iPod? Everything, hehe...

I got a G4 60gig model and only 15gig of music. But, I must say with no modesty whatsoever, I bought one just a few months after they debuted (G1, baybee, which my niece now owns) with 5gig of memory. GASP! What to do?

I decided to manage my iPod by playlist, created some normal and some smart playlists of stuff I always wanted with me. And then...

I decided that I was going to listen to every song I owned. And this is how I was going to do it.

I did not rate a song in iTunes unless I had listened to it on my iPod. Back then, working and playing in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time on the subway so I had a couple hours a day for prime listening. Anyway ... once I had listened to a song, I'd give it a rating.

Since I couldn't put all my music on my iPod, I created a smart playlist that would randomly grab 300 songs that did not have a rating and checked the "Live Update" button so when I gave a song a rating, it left the list for good.

How did I know what I listened to? Well, they do have the "Recently Played" default smart playlist, but I created my own that would include everything played in the last 3 days, so the list cleared out faster (Recently Played defaults to 2 weeks ... and I wanted to keep that as it is).

So, it was just a matter of synch the iPod, look at my "Really Recent iPodables" list and rate the unrated songs. As they received a rating, they got yanked from the "Most Unlistened To" list I created and never appeared there again.

And no, I'm still not done, what is it? 6 years now? or 5?

Every single song I own.

Now you'd think I'd be happy leaving some on my computer, but noooooo....

I just upgraded to a bigger iPod, and only mostly because I wanted my husband to have my old one because he always loves new technology but always hates it before he tries it. He can't imagine why he'd need an iPod but in a month, he won't understand how he lived without it.

I'm about to convert my old LP's that will never come out on CD to digital, so it'll be even more full with every song i own, including the kiddy ones that I'm nostalgic about.

"I'm so glad when Daddy comes home, glad as I can be. Clap my hands and shout for joy and climb up on his knee."

Or the 45 that came with my POW/MIA bracelet that I wore for the full seven years. "How do you tell a young boy"

Really don't have to be on my iPod, but you never know.

way way too much..

ITunes itself has 17Gb on it.. so to list anything would take way too long.. but my husband and I both have pretty eclectic tastes so pretty much everything but thrash / death metal (I do like singers to enunciate *l* I like to know what is being said!)

I have a huge obsession with cover versions and collect them like crazy.. Have about 200 in my cover versions playlist, and found some more good ones today *g*

My Ipod is just a 3rd gen mini.. but my husband and I also share a 4th gen 40Gb model.

60 gb of the hottest hits from the 16-19th centuries, plus some "classical" music from the 20th century (indeed the 21st century!)

Recently I listened to
Saint-SaŽns Organ Symphony
Beethoven Symphony #7

Mostly I have mine set to "shuffle" though. For whatever reason I was getting Paganini all the time last week.

(((((iPod))))))
