Ok, i have a problem.
My iTunes library has 1200 songs in it, not a massive number i know, But the thing is all this music is spread over so many genres and many time periods.
Personally i think the way we view music is appalling, iTunes looks like a spreadsheet, my playlists are alphabetical and i cant reorganise them. Its a very boring system and for a creative person its almost impossible to find, group and remember what i like and what i want to listen to.
Anyway i cant change that. So my problem is as i have grown up I’ve been through a number of phases. I used to like rock then heavy metal, briefly pop, then rock and now for the last two years I’ve been very big on electronic. I love everything about this genre and its grown massively since i have grown up. Now I only like a few of the old rock songs.
Its really annoying trying to navigate this library, since all my music is mixed up.
- Do i go through my library and keep all my favorite songs, deleting everything else ?
Do I keep all the music I don’t listen to and invest alot of time into constantly managing the playlists, and never use shuffle ?
How do you manage your music, and do you listen to one genre or multiple ?
Hopefully soon someone will design a visual, personal way of listening to music, because i’m not an accountant, and my music isn’t financial data…
Anyone have any good ideas ?
