Me and My Nano

So the other K and E turned me on to the joys of the iPod shuffle function the other day, and it has been just what I needed to break out of my David Bowie rut (although as far as ruts go, that's not a bad one). K has a theory that although iPod shuffles are supposed to be totally random, everyone's iPod has a unique personality and therefore gravitates to a certain artist or genre, playing them/it more than others. So far, mine is displaying an affinity for Elvis Costello, having selected him twice yesterday and once this morning. In an attempt to test this theory, I will be keeping a list of the songs that my iPod selects and listing them here for my dear readers to ponder. This will be a semi-regular activity so there will be plenty of opportunities to weigh in.

Do you have playlists for various occasions - or is it just a huge list of music which it cycles through?

(I need to get some new music for my mp3 player.... but switching it from my "snowboarding mix" takes way too long to be worthwhile.)
