This post has no knitting content


I am completely addicted to the Genius feature on iTunes. I.Love.It. I have a lot of music on my computer but I'm often listening to the same songs over and over again. Lately I've been choosing my favourite songs on iTunes and generating playlists with Genius and I absolutely love the results. The one I'm listening to right now is based on Sometime Around Midnight from The Airborne Toxic Event (I love the song) and here's what Genius gave me:

1. Sometime Around Midnight (The Airborne Toxic Event)
2. Troublemaker (Weezer)
3. Oxford Comma (Vampire Weekend)
4. Ulysses (Franz Ferdinand)
5. Rebellion (Lies) (The Arcade Fire)
6. Gamma Ray (Beck)
7. I Still Remember (Bloc Party)
8. The Heinrich Maneuver (Interpol)
9. Middle of Nowhere (Hot Hot Heat)
10. Hammerhead (The Offspring)
11. Flathead (The Fratellis)
12. Last Nite (The Strokes)
13. All the Same (Sick Puppies)
14. Lost Cause (Beck)
15. Time is Running Out (Muse)

Ok the list actually has 50 songs in it so I'll stop here but you get the idea. I just wish I could get the feature on my iPod (I have an iPod classic, 5th generation and it doesn't support Genius, unfortunately). But I can save the playlists and drag them into my iPod so all is good.

What are you guys listening to these days?

I'm listening to the new Florent Vollant (the lead singer of Kashtin - remember them?). Like, over and over and over. It's amazing.

I'll have to check out some of those songs.

I'm currently addicted to Jason Mraz's cd.

I've been a bit worried about using Genius because I don't want it scanning my computer, but if it just uses my iTunes I'm okay. I'm listening to White Lies, Craig Wedren, and The Whip right now.
