Yeah, it's true, I don't have an mp3 player. (I may get one, but if I do, it won't be an iPod; it'll be something that doesn't require iTunes.)

So I've been compiling mix discs of songs I like that I have on mp3 but not on CD, or that are from CDs that I only like a few songs from, or whatever. And I thought I'd share this list of random slices of my musical taste with you, deer reader (or whatever species you are):

Reading this list was like listening to an album commercial as one clip abruptly gave way to the next in my mind. Alas, I recognize fewer than half these titles; at Disc 14, my mental track went silent as I had to scan many to reach the next familiar number.

Some of these songs weren't done by whom I thought. I used to assume "Sex & Candy" was Beck, and someone misinformed me that "Closing Time" was Everclear.

I listened to as many unfamiliar songs from your first two discs as I could. The TMBG "Love Is Eternity" doesn't seem available on YouTube, and "Wumblehead" doesn't even get a Google hit other than yours.

Wumblehead is by Womble, a.k.a. Kwook, a.k.a. Kurrel the Raven, a.k.a. many other names; he's a friend of mine from IRC.

OOoooh, musics. Yay musics.

Pedantry: iPods-that-are-not-iPhones-in-disguise do not require iTunes for music-playing functions unless you take what Apple says at face value.

Whee! I'm definitely looking through these to fill a few holes in my own collection (to replace tunes that I've removed for whatever reason)
