how iPod is changing the way I listen to my music
I got an iPod a few months back. It has changed that way I listen to music. Amazing things happen when you can load up 1200 songs and put it in "random play" mode. I realize that I do, in fact, have the greatest CD collection.
I am listening to long-forgotten tracks from lost CDs that would remain in my CD drawer without the iPod. I can listen to one song and compare it to another (tempo, key, same beginning?). I can play the identify the song in 2 measures or less. I look forward to long drives and I now count songs instead of time or miles.
