If that don't get it, you can catch it on the b-side

Agreed - on all accounts

Jim, I'm right there with you. Skipping is the new listening. And not the kind of skipping those old CDwalkmans used to do! Again they are fine songs, hell any other day I might even repeat it once because it's a good tune and fits my mood, but today...bu-bye.

Also I have had similar times with my iPod related to its musical selections. I think it is telling me it (or maybe Steve Jobs, since he monitors all we do as "research") wants to hear that song. I believe a read a while back that there was a correlation between what Apple sells/promotes most in the iTunes store and what it selects on shuffle, but that might have been internet rumor.

I was trying out a new internet radio station the other day and some emo-pop crap (possibly Fireflies by Owl City, or maybe I just really hate that song and attribute all crappy music right now to that song - I've finally moved on from "Red, Red Wine" [still one of the worst song ever]) came on and Meg said "why are you not skipping that?" and I realized that I could not and it annoyed me. I have yet to return to that station and return to Pandora/general collection.

So in closing I agree.
