...how you think you have so much music on your i-tunes, yet it seems like you always hear the same songs?

it's because itunes has a fairly poor shuffle algorithm

I thought that could be it, cus some songs seems to sound more often than others, but there's problably an "I listen to itunes all the time and I'm just that used to all of the songs that even tho it seems like there's alot of them my musical memory is much larger than I would think" kind of thing going on

maybe he's crazy but a friend of mine has actually tried different software with different digital shuffling methods and he swears itunes is the shittiest. it "clumps" certain songs like all the time.
I dunno, that's what he says. He's talked me into believing it, though.

It's true. ITunes has the shittiest shuffle ever. There's no adjustment for it, either. With Winamp you can adjust how varied the shuffle is, like if have it on full shuffle and try to go back a song it won't go back to the same song it just played.

that's so wierd, from a computer programming perspective it doesn't seem like it would be that hard to do a true random shuffle

Is it weird that I dont EVER shuffle? I usually pick an artist based on my mood or the time of day and go from there. I don't really make playlists either.

I don't shuffle either.
The ONLY way I listen to music (except radio)is by picking an album and listening from start to finish.

Fuck, I want to program my own shuffle algorithm that clumps rock songs together that are in the same album (like track 5,6,7).  MY prob is I listen to classical and rock, what ends up happening is I don't want to listen to one classical album all the way through cus I want to hear a different composer, but when it comes to rock I am always disapointed that I don't get to hear the song that comes after it, plus alot of classical peices are longer than rock songs.

I don't get it. Computers can simulate randomness fine. If you assign a number to each song, it only takes likes like 2 lines of code to randomly pick one. They must be trying to make them "flow" into each other or something.
