      Yeah, how about a thread on which ten drugs would be best on a desert island

        >still have a turntable!).>>

        An iPod is Apple's version of an MP3 (digital audio files) player. Other companies may well make one as good, but it's truly a fabulous piece of machinery. Imagine a small rectangle about the size of a pack of cigarettes, only smaller. And it holds 20 GIGABYTES of music (close to 5000 top-40 type songs, probably). And it has them arranged by song, by composer, by genre, by artist.

        And by creating different folders on your main computer (using Apple's iTunes) you can custom create playlists of anything you can imagine. Tell it to put every song that has "love" in its title into one folder and zap, there it is. You never view music quite the same ever again.

          OK, when this burns out we can have a thread on song(s) you actually have in your "regular play" list that you figure nobody else in the board would have in their top 500 songs.

          Gems like "Tiger Rag" by the Bonzo Dog Band, or "The Intergalactic Laxative" by Donovan.

            Some of you may have heard of this one, but does anyone else have it besides me? When I play this to students, they ALL like it. One of my 'lost treasures'.

            "Memphis Soul Stew" by Atlantic Rhythm & Blues

                My guess, gh, is that there at least one or two in the list I gave in the other thread that wouldn't be on your top 1571. A lot would be of course.

                  One problem with disallowing greatest hits collections is that some (few) songs were never released as albums, just 45s.
                  Thus Dylan's Positively 4th Street is only on his first greatest hits album and George Jackson exists only on 45 (and bootlegs). If you think messing with LPs is a pain, try finding the damn spindle for the 45.
                  The Stones' Ride on Baby was only on the Flowers album, which was kinda greatest hits.

                    Now you're getting somewhere, GH! I was thinking about a top ten of albums that sold less than 100,000 copies, but I don't know where to find the relevant sales figures. How about top ten most obscure albums in everyone's collections?

                          Lightfoot's ex-girlfriend, Cathy Smith, was the one who gave a lethal heroin hit to Belushi.

                            Not actually heroin; a speedball, which is a combination of heroin and cocaine.
