E is for Eclectic

A to Z Challenge: E

E is for Eclectic… which pretty much describes me and the things I like. I’m known for stumping suggestion algorithms — both Blockbuster (are they even still around) and Netflix have given up. I think Hulu is almost there too.

I don’t mean to be difficult but many things appeal to me and not all those things mesh.

And that’s just this month. Ever so often, I put all my play counts back to zero and start the most played list all over again. I just did it recently. The most played song on this list has only been played 35 times. Before my last clean slate, the most played song (title I can’t remember) had been played well over 150 times.

When I do it again, about 5 (maybe 6) of the above songs will remain. The rest will be something different. With 3900+ songs in my playlist, my most played changes a LOT. It all depends on my mood when I’m listening to music and what new songs I’ve downloaded that need to be listened to at least ten times in a row. 😛
