Well please do !

I put my player on shuffle all the time now and i think that Apple should use the strap line for the ipod .... the player for song you forgot you had. My reason being is that I put all my albums on it and then forget what songs are on what albums as i rarely listen to cd's on the hi fi these days and I'll hear a song and it willcaptivate me so I have to stop what i'm doing and look to see who it is by hence the strap line.

Of course you can cheat Azjh77 it's any player that has a shuffle on it or utube playlist. If it's not a wind up about the ipod it's a portable music player that can hold many 1000's of different music tracks, pictures, videos etc. http://www.apple.com/itunes/ . I'm in the middle of reloading my cd's and music collection back on the computer and as such the ipod but still way short. I currently have 11547 songs on the computer with another 600 odd cd's to go then there is the live stuff to do.... i'll get there in the end.

I had one of those new fangly music thingies in my greasy mitts for all of about 3 nano seconds before my about to become a teen daughter descended and conviscated it from me :( , on the basis that I would never get round to putting any music on it as I enjoy the sound of my big stereo across the garden (and I'm am completely convinced that my geriatric neighbours and their cows share my taste in music :oops: :oops: ) far too much.

So I dread to think what the first 10 songs lined up on it are but I am sure they feature Pink (born George), and Avril the Whinge, and some other silly songs about chasing girls with chapsticks.

One day I may get to keep one of my birthday pressies just for me and no-one else!!

I still have the records too, but not so easy to take with you in the car, out in the garden, while doing the washing up, etc, etc,etc. For me records are for listening to and/or dancing to with Shortie in the livingroom :blob4: she loves Elvis, The Beatles and Simon and Garfunkle :mrgreen:
