Yet another one of these iTunes memes, stolen (as usual) from Keith R.A. Decandido:

Most recently played: "She Sang Angels to Rest" by Richard Thompson, from Sweet Warrior

Sort by song title
First Song: "A.C. Cover" by Camper Van Beethoven, off Camper Vantiquities

Sort by time
Shortest Song: "Kangaroo - SFX" by Carl Stalling and the Warner Brothers Orchestra

(Hey, it missed Sort by Artist, so I'll throw that in, too --
First: 1996 Broadway Cast (Chicago soundtrack)
Last: Aaron Neville
No, wait. Strike that -- reverse it.)

Sort by album
First album: Abacab
Last album: 90125

First song that comes up on Shuffle: "Happy Jack" by The Who, from Live at Leeds

Search the following and state how many songs come up:

Hate - 52
You - 1465
Sex - 75

Damn, did you accidentally add a one in front of your song totals? If not, you've got 11,000 *more* songs than me?

John Joseph: That's right -- 16 thousand songs, a month and a half of music.

I have a lot of CDs stacked away in boxes.
