Playing on the iPod, part II

As much as I thrive in the semi-chaos called my life I really do not like to have a lot of *unnecessary* music on the iPod. Songs I once adored may not still be something I keenly listen to very often. Hence the term "unnecessary" for these space requiring songs. Besides, it does disturb the flow when one has to (oh the difficult tasks in life) skip songs when one just need good, want-to-listen-to-whatever-mood-songs most of the time.

When one can't seem to sort out all the majorly important things in life, one can at least erase and cleanse the iPod. But the more one download-upload (which way is up and which way is down, that is the question) the more tiresome it gets to actually try and decide which ones should stay which should go, which ones should be swept away in much needed spring cleaning and which ones sit safe. Especially if that "one" that's in charge of the music library has a middle name spelled Procrastinator.

In awaiting of actual musical spring cleaning mood - admittedly I've been quite good at cleansing my bookshelves as lately, leaving room for new and improved books I actually like, love and adore and want at this time in life as opposed to what I read 10-20 years ago... - these are the artists - as songs would be too many to write blog about, some artists have loads of songs while others appear only once in a special song, hence the "1" - sharing the iPod space at the moment (as this will be a longish list, downsized is the text);

As this list may have hinted my (of course indeed very refined) taste in music, any artists/songs you think I should give a go? Any of the artists/songs above you love, any you're not too keen on?

For my most-listen-to-list, have a look here

I love that you have The Soggy Bottom Boys and Otis Redding.

From time to time, I listen to songs I skip over frequently and if I find myself reaching for the forward button I toss it.

Just the name alone makes SBB a must on the iPod, Heather! I want every song to be like meeting an old friend I do appreciate and enjoy spending time with, since I don't take the iPod with me all that often that's kind of important to me. It of course being a strictly I-country problem...
