One thing I've discovered about the iPod, it really does help me discover the songs that've been buried in the depths of my collection, brought them to light. I was sceptical about that effect - after all, I do have all the songs already on my computer - but I suppose having 40GB of music around you is very different from carrying 1GB as I used to do.
Unearthed songs that I've rediscovered the joys of:
- Ryan Adam "La Cienaga Just Smiled". (Ryan Adams is great walking-around-town music: always has the ring of late 90s/early 00s East village music to me, and that always has special memories...)
- Tapes N' Tapes "50s Parking"
- Gomez "Get Myself Arrested" - If I recall correctly, I wrote a review of the album when it first came out. Still like it.
- Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels "Devil With a Blue Dress On / Good Golly Miss Molly". Listening to this made me think, I want to DJ again. On a mid-week night, with my choice of music. And one night I'll just do garage-band music. (And on another night I'll do bizarre cover songs, but that's another subject for another day.)
