Having recently become a fan of Battlestar Galactica, I have developed a healthy suspicion of machines. I am worried that my iPod is thinking for itself.
I always listen to the thing in shuffle mode. Every time you upload new music or edit a playlist it resets. Now, I have 3,264 songs in my iPod, so the probability of hearing a song more than once in a short space of time is low. Yet certain songs come up with disturbing frequency, such as Pet Shop Boys' "DJ Culture," Maria Callas' first recording of the Lucia mad scene, and "Der Musensohn" sung by Bryn Terfel. Even though I've only got one Ute Lemper CD in the mix, I get an average of two Lemper songs a day.
Also my iPod apparently does not like Dolly Parton at all.
Should I be concerned?
