One thing I've been noticing recently with the iPod is that the song you expect to follow the song you just listened to is not the song that comes up.
For years I listened to cassette tapes and CDs, and learned what song was next. The albums were ordered and song followed song in a way that I got used to.
For example, I was just listening to "Cuddly Bear" by the Monkees. It used to always be followed by the deep bass drum beginning of "Randy Scouse Git."
No longer with Shuffle, but I'll still take my over 6,700 songs on shuffle than having to flip a cassette tape, or change the disc.
Yeah this is rambling and incoherent. Oh well.
