Thread: What's playing on your iTunes & iPod?

    As noted before, I have only a 1GB player - I fill it with podcasts and new CDs that I've bought, listen through 'em then delete and refill.

    I've just started listening through a 30-disc set of works by classical composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. I expect to be caught up in that for the next few weeks.

    Transferred more songs to the iPod Shuffle today, the count is at 200 songs, using up 477 Mbytes of storage on this 1G byte model. To play the entire collection will take about 8.2 hours.

    It would be interesting to see what happens when I reached the limit of 240 songs and still have usable space left over on the unit.

    I'm almost certain the number of songs is an estimate, not a limit.

    The number of songs one can store on an iPod include factors such as length of song and even the file type. If you have mostly AAC files then you probably can store more vs. MP3. On my low end 512 MB 1st gen iPod Shuffle, the advertised capacity was 120 songs.. reality sets in at about 88 to 94 songs if most of your songs are at around 4 minutes each.

    Loaded more songs into my iPod Shuffle today. Count is at 242 songs, used up 604.4 Mbytes out of 967 Mbytes and would take about 10.5 hours to play.

    Makes one kind of wonder if I had taken a 2Gbyte model instead of the 1 GByte model, the battery only last 12 hours.

    So, is this thread for iPod users only?

    Default Play Count

    With the end of 2008 fast approaching, it is soon time for me to tally up all of the songs that got the most play on my iTunes according to the "play count" column of the software. At the beginning of the year I zeroed all of my songs and tracks on iTunes and decided to keep track of the count of how many times each track was played. Of course I have hundreds of playlists and make sure that I classify each track according to genre.

    So for example after I zeroed out the play count in January, since that time the top 40 songs in the "rock" genre that got the most play are the following as of 12-30-08:

    Rank - Title - Artist - Play Count

    1 - Out Of Our Heads - Sheryl Crow - 67
    2 - Busy Being Fabulous - The Eagles - 66
    3 - All Summer Long - Kid Rock - 60
    4 - Somebody - The Eagles - 59
    5 - Gasoline - Sheryl Crow - 58
    6 - How Long - The Eagles - 52
    7 - If I Had Eyes - Jack Johnson - 50
    8 - Apologize - OneRepublic - 46
    9 - Only Fooling Myself - Kate Voegele - 43
    10 - Liverpool 8 - Ringo Starr - 41

    11 - It's Not My Time - 3 Doors Down - 41
    12 - If It's Love That You Want - Ringo Starr - 40
    13 - Love Is Free - Sheryl Crow - 40
    14 - Stop And Stare - OneRepublic - 38
    15 - Le Disko - Shiny Toy Guns - 38
    16 - Working Class Hero - Green Day - 35
    17 - Instant Karma - U2 - 35
    18 - I Do - Jewel - 33
    19 - How Far We've Come - Matchbox Twenty - 33
    20 - Shattered [Turn The Car Around] - O.A.R. - 32

    21 - Dead Sound - The Raveonettes - 30
    22 - If I Never See Your Face Again - Maroon 5 & Rihanna - 29
    23 - I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Smithereens - 29
    24 - Never Walk Away - Journey - 27
    25 - Great Day - Lindsey Buckingham - 27
    26 - Like A Sunshower - Journey - 26
    27 - Never Miss A Beat - Kaiser Chiefs - 26
    28 - Wake Up Call - Maroon 5 - 26
    29 - Rainy Monday - Shiny Toy Guns - 25
    30 - Worry Number One - Chris Singleton - 24

    31 - Accelerate - R.E.M. - 24
    32 - Black/White - The Raveonettes - 24
    33 - Underneath - Alanis Morissette - 23
    34 - Second Option - Caitlin Cary And Thad Cockrell - 21
    35 - Sleepy Tigers - Her Space Holiday - 21
    36 - Rhiannon - Fleetwood Mac - 20
    37 - The Weight Of Her - Butch Walker - 19
    38 - Come On Get Higher - Matt Nathanson - 19
    39 - Lost Highway - Bon Jovi - 18
    40 - Radio Nowhere - Bruce Springsteen - 18

    The number posted at the next to the artist name represents how many times that track got played on my iTunes and iPods. The play count is updated everytime a track is played or an iPod is synched through iTunes.

    So for 2008, my most played track in the rock genre is Sheryl Crow's "Out of Our Heads". The track was played 67 times this year.

    I have the rock genres broken into smaller categories usually by year, so that I can offer a play count list of all the rock songs that I played this year from the decade of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.

    Anyone else seriously keep track of play counts in iTunes?

    Anyone want to keep track of your play counts starting on Jan. 1, 2009?

    I'll probably be zeroing out my iTunes on January 1 to start the play count over again.

    Default Transfering songs

    Help please with a question that I'm asking on behalf of one of the kids. It might have been discussed in this long thread already, if so my bad.
    Anyway, is there a free way to get the songs from an IPod transfered to an IPod Touch? The kids are complaining that the "free" sites (downloadable programs) only work for a couple of songs, then the sites ask for a fee.
    Private Message me if you'd rather not post online about this.
    Thanks for helping ..... I figured some HTers would have this problem figured out already.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    If the songs are being played on one iPod, they should be transferable to another. All you have to do is authorize the 2 iPods to sync with the same computer running iTunes. This allows both iPods to share tracks from the same iTunes libraries.

    Of course the songs originally had to be uploaded to iTunes, whether you bought them from the iTunes Store, Amazon.com, or other online retailer that iTunes support.

    Also all music ripped from CDs are also supported by iTunes and should be easily transferred to your 2 different iPods.

    Caveats:

    Songs purchased from the Apple iTunes store only work with iPods authorized with iTunes for that computer... That means all video content, most audiobook content, and about 90% of the music that is labeled as "Protected AAC". About 10% of the iTunes music is DRM free, and labeled as "Purchased AAC". Those can be transferred to any computer or device supporting the AAC format. Furthermore the DRM free AAC files can be converted to MP3 which allows even better compatibility with all devices.

    Bottom line for music and audio files, MP3 is compatible with iTunes and any iPod as long as that iPod can transfer the content from the iTunes computer with the MP3s in them.

    MP3 files can also be copied and played to non-Apple audio devices such as the Sansa music player.

    Default Re: Play Count

    After spending the last 2 days compiling the play counts for my various play lists on iTunes for 2008, I finally reset the software's play count on all tracks back to zero this morning. For 15,000+ tracks on my iTunes, the reset function took only 2 minutes.

    So as of January 3, 2009 my iTunes play count is reset to zero. The first songs I played this morning are:

    All Summer Long - Kid Rock
    Sending You a Telegram - The NuRu
    Did You Miss Me - Lindsey Buckingham
    Trouble is a Friend - Lenka

    Anyone else reset their iTunes play count for 2009?

    Default Re: What's playing on your iTunes & iPod?

    I tried to think what is the worst Beatles song ever. Since I am a Beatles fan I like all of their songs. However if I had to pick one that is the worst, I have to go with the one that usually always gets skipped when I play the album... and that would be "Revolution #9". I don't know if it even qualifies as a song, but I usually avoid playing it because it is non-sensicle and long (8 min 13 sec).

    A close follow-up to that "song" is "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" which originally appeared on the B-side of 1970's "Let It Be" single. It was later issued to the "Rare Masters Vol. 2" album. Like "Revolution #9" this song is non-sense, rubbish filler... though I think the group had a fun time making it.

    I have both on my iTunes and loaded into a couple of iPods. Still I skip these more times than I play em. "I Me Mine" while not the worst song IMO, gets played a lot when I do Beatles music on the iPod.

    That's funny, Mel. I wasn't going to answer, because I don't like to call anything like that "the worst," figuring it's just something that doesn't connect with me. But...those were the first two titles that sprang to my mind anyway.

    I "get" the creative musique concrete concept that is "Revolution #9" (in fact, I own several multi-disc volumes of experimental music that are generally defined as "noise"), but if you're looking to define it as a "song" - yeah, I'd agree that it's their "worst."

  23. #148

    Default Re: What's playing on your iTunes & iPod?

    Since Revolution 9 has no singing, I wouldn't classify it as a song. So that is why it does not rate as my choice for worst song.

    You Know My Name (Look Up The Number) may be on some fans' worst Beatles song, but Paul McCartney has gone on record as calling it his personal favorite song, FWIW. Anyone who is familiar with the old Goon Show (featuring the legendary Peter Sellers) would "get" its humor.

    I Me Mine is my pick for worst Beatles song as it is George Harrison at his whiniest. (Considering all of the preachy songs that he had written throughout his career, that is really saying something.) To add insult to injury, John Lennon was totally absent from the recording session.

    Worst Beatles recording of a non-Beatle written song? That would be Mister Moonlight. Ewwww.

    Throughout the years, many of the Beatles recorded songs without some of their compadres anywhere near the studio. It's possible that Ringo was the only one who never worked entirely solo (that's speculation, mind you - I'd have to check my references to be sure).

    Animosity ran high in the group from its earliest days - you've probably read many of the books that have come out in recent years about all that. If not, may I recommend a short read and a long one?
