iTunes shuffle observation

Since I got my Mac, one of the first things I did was put all of my (entirely legally obtained) music into iTunes. It's interesting to see how my musical tastes have changed over the years. I haven't listened to much of my own music since I decommissioned my old desktop about two years ago. Naturally, my tastes have drifted towards the sort of music I've been exposed to, which is Jenny's: short and loud. Consequently, I have trouble listening to some of my old music, which tends to be longer and more involved (Pink Floyd, Tool, Smashing Pumpkins for example). So I find myself skipping through the list quite a bit.

But, interestingly, I feel like I can get a sense for a old song after just a few seconds. Before I skip it to go on to the next one, I enjoy a five second burst of nostalgia.
