The unthinkable has happened. If reached the 40 gig limit of my second gen Ipod. (Does anyone else still even have their 2nd Gen Ipod??)
In honor of the occasion, I thought I’d go though my songs list and see which ones were repeated. I’m not holding anything back, because at this stage in my life, what’s the point?
Addicted to Love–x2 both from different 80’s compilation albums–RIP Robert!
Adia, Sarah McLachlan– x2 one from an all women compilation CD, one from Surfacing
After The Gold Rush, Neil Young.
Agony–Apparently I loaded Into the Woods on twice. I can’t get enough Sondheim. I won’t mention any more Into The Woods numbers.
All along the Watchtower–x4!! Jimi, of course, abut also Dave Matthews, Dylan & Richie Havens.
All the Way–x3 several different Sinatra CD’s– Lots of Repeated Frank, so I’ll eliminate those songs too.
America–x3 Simon & Garfunkle Bookends, Concert in the Park & Old Friends I’m overloaded in S&G. Which is fine by me. I won’t mention other songs by them that are repeated, though, ’cause there’s bound to be a ton.
Baby please don’t go–x2 Muddy Waters & Van Morrison.
Back in the USSR–x2 White Album & Love
Badlands–x2 Live 1975-1985 & Greatest Hits
OK, this is getting tedious. I’m only going to mention songs that have at least 4 versions on my IPOD:
Sway–x5 Bobby Rydell, 2x Dean Martin, Michael Buble, Peter Cincotti
The Thrill is Gone–6x All BB!
Try a Little Tenderness–x4 Otis, of course but also Michael Grimm–Don’t Judge–and the Commitments—hey, I said Don’t Judge!
White Rabbit–x4 JA, all of them. Hum, not sure how that happened. Damn compilations.
Wild is the Wind–x4 All Nina, baby.
With a little help from my Friends–x5 I don’t even want to look. Beatles, of course, and a Joe Cocker at the very least.
You belong to me–A record 7 copies! The Duprees x2, Dean Martin x3, Elvis Costello & Vonda Shepard.
What have I learned from this exercise? The number of time a song appears on the IPOD has no correlation to the number of times it is actually played!
