Like looking at someone's book shelf or dvd collection, looking into someone's music collection can be entertaining and amusing.

 

I want to have a peek. Do a random play of your mass music storage system (ipod/hd whatever) and list the first 10 tracks that come up. Reveal your pedestrian, your obsessions, fixations/fetishes and your guilty pleasures - musically speaking of course.

"Shuffle Songs" option on my old-school (seriously, it's over a decade old) iPod

 

  1. Dream Theater - Beyond this Life
  2. Judas Priest - Desert Plains (live)
  3. Yes - Picasso (I have Tormato on this thing?  WHY?!)
  4. Frank Zappa - Florentine Pogen (live)
  5. Simon and Garfunkel - Leaves that are Green
  6. Yes - Changes
  7. The Police - O My God
  8. REO Speedwagon - Wild as the Western Wind
  9. Scorpions - Winds of Change
  10. Porcupine Tree - Fear of a Blank Planet (BBC Sessions)

Pretty random to get two Yes songs (one of them good, one of them AWFUL; seriously, when did I even buy Tormato?  Oi!)


labente deinde paulatim disciplina velut desidentes primo mores sequatur animo, deinde ut magis magisque lapsi sint, tum ire coeperint praecipites, donec ad haec tempora quibus nec vitia nostra nec remedia pati possumus perventum est.

 

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Just upgraded my phone to a 200G micro-sd card last week.

 

I have 17636 tracks apparently, though some of them are from radio shows released on CD as well as music. They're on my computer as well so let's knock up a list of the tracks ..

 

fierce /data/mp3s> ls -d */*mp3 > /tmp/m
fierce /data/mp3s>

 

.. and get 10 random ones:

 

fierce /data/mp3s> for i in $(shuf -i 1-17636 -n 10); do
> sed "${i}q;d" /tmp/m
> done
murderballads/murderballads004.mp3
natelements/natelements008.mp3
whatsnext/whatsnext008.mp3
shavingpeaches/shavingpeaches013.mp3
timeandaword/timeandaword009.mp3
wholiveleeds/wholiveleeds010.mp3
kingofeverything/kingofeverything004.mp3
jordan_thecomeback/jordan_thecomeback007.mp3
romeoandjuliet/romeoandjuliet003.mp3
withthebeatles_m/withthebeatles_m014.mp3
fierce /data/mp3s>

 

Turns out these are:

 

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds : Lovely Creature

John McLaughlin : Peace Of Mind

Mahogany Rush : Mona

Terrorvision: Spanner In The Works

Yes : Dear Father [bonus]

The Who : Amazing Journey / Sparks

Jinjer : Just Another

Prefab Sprout : Jesse James Symphony

Solti & Chicago Symphony Orchestra : Tybalt Fights Mercutio

Beatles : Money

I've been ripping my CD's to MP3 on the computer, then moving them to an MP3 player that plugs into the car's sound system. This should get more interesting as I get more loaded onto the player(2.3 MB of 6.5 MB used)

Rush-Subdivisions (ASOH)
Frank Zappa-I Am the Slime
Jeff Beck-A Day in the House
King Crimson-Easy Money (Live in Toronto)
Shawdofax-The Dreams of Children
Motorhead-(We Are) The Road Crew
Rush-Vital Signs
Joe Satriani-Crazy Joey
Allman Brothers-Statesboro Blues (Live at Filmore East)
Steve Vai-For the Love of God

But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to."

I have all my stuff uploaded to Google Music, and just discovered that it has a shuffle function.

 

Here's what it came up with:

 

Scorpions : Tin Soldier (from Comeblack)

Robert Plant :  Shining In The Light (from Greatest Hits Part Two)

David Bowie : Beauty And The Beast (from Heroes)

Deaf School : Fire (from The Anthology)

Simple Minds : Sweat In Bullet (from The Best Of)

Dave Brubeck Quartet : Blue Rondo A La Turk (from Time Out)

Bob Dylan : Times They Are A-Changin' (from The Best Of)

Kendrick Lamar : Lust (from Damn)

It Bites : Once Around The World (from Once Around The World)

Marvin Gaye : Mercy Mercy Me (from What's Going On)

 

Interesting that  compilation albums came up quite a few times there.
