One side effect of transferring big chunks of your CD collection on to your iPod is that you get to see what your collection would look like if you were the sort of person who alphabeticised meticulously, but with no regard for genre, decade or anything except artist or group name. I find the juxtapositions that this throws up strangely pleasing: for example, when I look at my iPod and select Music » Artists, I find that:–
- Dido is next to Dion
- The Scissor Sisters are next to the Seekers
- Cat Stevens is next to Rachel Stevens who's next to Sufjan Stevens
I don't know why that tickles me really, but it does.
