VAST 16 – an iPodyssey
Somehow, I’ve managed to get access to The Danielle’s entire music library. These are my musings as I navigate the largest and most amazing collection of music in the world. Enjoy!
The Danielle and I are concurring: songs sound better in shuffle mode. Why is this?? I’m always amazed how many songs I get in shuffle and I think “yeah, I love this, let’s listen to the whole album!” and then I do and not only does the album disappoint, but the actual song that got me started in that direction is kind of lame too. It’s the college radio syndrome – I love being out of control, being surprised, not knowing what to expect. Shuffle creates an openness that’s totally lacking when I put an album on. Then I’m responsible – I chose it. How many things in life are like this and we don’t realize it?
[Editor’s note: The Fratellis came up on shuffle recently, I switched to the whole LP, and I wasn’t disappointed. Exception proving the rule?]
