    Default What's playing on your iTunes & iPod?

    Since this topic is "The Jukebox", I am sure several of us have Apple's iTunes and iPod music player and software. The software and the player are probably the ultimate consumer jukebox to have around these days.

    After reading Blaine's iTunes list I was wondering what collection of songs do you play on your iTunes, iPod or other similar type of software player and hardware.

    I have maintained a page that I occasionally update of the songs that I play on my 2 Macs that have iTunes and my recently acquired iPod. My latest list is always posted at this URL:

    http://macpro.freeshell.org/music/iTunes.html

    It's a standard html table of the day's playlist that I cut out from iTunes, paste in Excel and then export as an html table to place in my template. My musical tastes are probably not as eccentric as most of you, though I do have a lot of music (mostly burned from my CDs) with a little more than 5,700 songs currently on my main iTunes hard drive (and most in my iPod).

    What I really like about iTunes is that I can create dozens (actually I think I have close to 100+) of playlists with various mixes of the songs that I have in iTunes. Since I grew up mostly with Top 40 AM radio of the past, most of my lists tend to skew towards oldies of the 60s and 70s, though sometimes I mix other stuff up.

    Perhaps we can use this forum to share our playlists and whatever it is that catches our fancy on those new digital players... iPod, Rio, Sony Digital Walkmans or whatevers.
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Great idea. I was just looking at some automated solutions that can take your iPod "Recently Played" list and post it on the web. I soon realized that maybe my taste in music might be a bit embarassing, however. Besides, half the listening I do on my iPod is to podcasts, now. The other half is music ('cause I'm at the gym and it's hard to work out to geek talk).

    The music ranges from techno (a must for cardio training!) to Hawaiian (of course) to movie themes and music used in TV commercials (I went through a phase). According to iTunes, the most frequently played songs are:


    • "Delicate" by Damien Rice (featured in an episode of "Lost")
    • "Break Your Heart (Live)" by Barenaked Ladies (one of my favorite songs ever)
    • "Bananas and Rice" by Akamai Brain Collective (discovered when working on a podcast)
    • "Gotta Get Up from Here" by Ellie Lawson (would you believe it was a iTunes freebie of the week?)
    • "Holei" by Dennis Pavao (a classic and one my kids ask to hear)
    • "21 Things" by Alanis Morissette (hmm... unexpected)
    • "Lux Aeterna" from Requiem for a Dream Soundtrack (makes me want to make movies... or become a vampire)
    As for podcasts? Geek News Central, On The Media (one of my favorite NPR shows anyway), Coverville, and despite myself, Adam Curry.

    Hi folks,

    Great thread idea! Here's where I get my iTunes toys:

    http://www.macupdate.com/search.php?...15&button.y=12

    This one exports iTunes lists to Delicious Library
    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17091

    You don't know about Delicious Library??? Aaagh!
    http://www.delicious-monster.com/

    These export your iTunes lists to an HTML file:
    http://www.macupdate.com/search.php?...15&button.y=12

    This is the one I used to make my iTunes page:
    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14800

    This one automatically shows what's playing in your iTunes on the web:
    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/15358
    But it looks like he's taken the product offline. I found another link that still works, but grab it quick!

    Here are the most recent selections pulled off my iTunes playlist for today:

    Jerk It Out - Caesars
    Out of Reach - Cities of Foam
    One Evening - Feist
    Gov. Lingle on Rick Hamada 4-6-05 - Rick Hamada with Governor Lingle +
    Tiny Bubbles - Don Ho & The Aliis
    Blue Hawaiian Moonlight - Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian Band
    Malia My Tita - Buddy Fo & The Invitations

    Remember Mary - Sweet Marie

    You Are The Sunshine of My Life - Stevie Wonder
    Stuck in the Middle With You - Stealer's Wheel
    Things We Said Today - The Beatles

    + That Governor Lingle thing could pass for a podcast as it is in a library of MP3 files that you can download off the Gov's website under the heading "Radio Show" where an archive going back to last year is maintained. I renamed the file after downloading it so that it fit the format of my iTunes listings.

    My son and son in-law bought iPods last saturday. My son tried to show me how to use one and play a song on his list of tunes.
    Finally saw Creedence Clearwater Revival, played "Joy To The World". Sang along with my imaginary guitar like the good old days...my son then realized I was nuts!

    I'll leave iPods & iTunes to you younger generation. I'll stick with the old fashion cassettes, CD's or better yet, radio.

    Auntiiiiiieeeeeeeeee!!!! "I'll leave iPods & iTunes to you younger generation"? Auwe!!!!!!

    I know for a fact that both Mel and I are older than you! And possibly others here in this thread, too. You not old, just nuts!

    So I suggest you GO NUTS!!! Go download iTunes for your computer right now. It's free and really cool. http://www.itunes.com

    You don't have to have an iPod to use iTunes to listen to music while you post on HawaiiThreads.com! Take your favorite CDs and import the music to iTunes. Then plug in the speakers or headphones and jam!

    If you're feeling like an "out of body experience," go play some psychedelic music and click the visualizer button in iTunes. You goin' have hard time stop um!

    I posted earlier about a little app called "iTunes Watcher." Seems the developer Michael Simmons had pulled it. But I just got a note back from him saying he had put it back online, but no longer supports the app. Installation instructions and the file download are now here: http://www.thoughtanomalies.com/ituneswatcher/manual/

    I have installed it successfully and you can now see what's playing in my iTunes, LIVE: http://zztype.com/music/

    Installation is very technical, and you need to have a web server configured on the computer where your iTunes is playing (as mine is) in order for anyone else to see what's playing. It's not meant for everyone do be doing. But it's kinda cool to deploy in your office, if you've got a bunch of Macs on the network. (It has to be run on a Mac as it uses AppleScript.)

    nice thread. I've mainly got a bunch of Jack Johnson, Ted Lennon, Mason Jennings. A few songs from Weezer, Chili peppers, Strokes, and White stripes. Bob Marley is on there too. But my most played songs are those from the first three.

    My main G4 tower and iPod each have more than 5,000 songs. My iBook laptop has a small 176 song playlist. Here is a list of songs that played on my iBook today (while I was at work). It was a combination of safe oldies and later tonight some newer tracks.

    MacMade Easy had a close-out sale on 60GB and 40GB iPod Photos last month. I bought the 40GB model. Apple has since dropped it and now only offers a 30GB and another 60GB iPod Photo.

    I had been accumulating a big pile of music over the 3 years since I bought my Power Mac G4 tower in 2001. Mostly ripping and burning my CDs, downloaded a few from iTunes and converting some of my tapes and records to MP3 with Griffin Technology's iMic. (This is why you may see some old out of print music on some of my lists; they are ripped from records.)

    I figured I might as well take the plunge and buy one of these things when the price was right... so I did. I still have an issue with the battery life/life of the iPod in general. But I figure if the battery conks out (which it will eventually), I figure to just hopefully continue running it on AC power through the adapter. BTW, mine was the last one to come with the dock/cradle and both the USB and Firewire cords, iTunes 4.7 and the black carry case. I have since bought a few more accessories for it... a carrying case for both iPod and accessories, a small camera bag to tote the whole thing around in and the Griffin iTrip to play music through my cheapo car radio.

    So like I have my 5,000+ songs which represent only a small fraction of my total music collection on CD, records and tapes. I been collecting this stuff since 1969. So yes, color me old. I still have 45s, LPs, some reel to reel tapes lying around, 2 8track tapes, and several hundred cassettes of radio shows, personal stuff, family gatherings, small kid time singing and whatevers. I plan to eventually burn all these to CD... have done a few already.

    I also have a measly 51 color photos on my iPod. I don't plan to keep too many photos there... kind of use it as a digital wallet for pictures.

    And yes, I like my iPod but don't use it that much since most of the time I am either with my G4 or my iBook and both have iTunes. Also I am a bit leary of taking my iPod out and around... I will probably buy the small iPod Shuffle, which seems to be more durable and has no moving parts... I can just tote around a fraction of my playlist of songs that I want for the moment. I have a $10 credit from the Apple Store due to the fact that I had returned an item I bought from there a while back. So I plan to apply that to the 512MB Shuffle soon.

    OK.. I probably said more than I needed to about my iPod.

    Here is a picture of my iPod:
