First Song Added to iTunes

мека мебел

I lost my music Hard Drive once in my life. It was extremely sad, I had some of the stuff on cd’s, but it wasn’t everything. So every once and awhile I will look for an album or an artist and they won’t be there, and it will make me sad. Well, I just go on iTunes and hope that they are on there and buy the CD.

So just now, I was thinking about the artist μ-Ziq, before today I had known nothing about him. Well either way thats not the point, I had some μ-Ziq in my iTunes, And I was very happy about that. Then I though, What is the oldest song in my iTunes library. Well thats what you see above. That is probably around the time that I lost my Hard Drive and was downloading music off of mp3 sites. The first four songs added to my iTunes were:
“Like Humans Do (radio edit)” By David Byrne, Added on 9/16/2006 5:20 PM
“Yours to Keep (Featuring Neneh Cherry)” By Teddybears, Added on 9/16/2006 5:21 PM
“She Can Do What She Wants” By Field Music, Added on 9/28/2006 11:22 AM
“Robo” By How I Became The Bomb, Added on 9/28/2006 11:22AM

Out of those four Bands, I only really listen to How I Became The Bomb. On 11/18/2006 is when I started to add music from my collection.

Update: “She Can Do What She Wants” By Field Music is actually “Kneel Before Zod” – How I Became The Bomb.

iTunes Date Added

I want to start adding these little mp3 iTunes facts in the future. I guess i want to make this more personal somehow. I wanted to see how much music I add to my collection every year. Especially since I just purchased a new iPod to fit my collection. I had to get the 160 gig ipod classic since my colection is now 128.62 GB.

So I had to make a new smart playlist for 2006 till 2010.  I did Date added is in the range 1/1/2006 to 12/31/2006 (since the first recorded song added was in November of 2006).

Added in 2006:  6256 items

Added in 2007:  1550 items

Added in 2008:  5965 items

Added in 2009: 9597 items

Added in 2010: 581 items

I got this my creating a smart playlist in iTunes with the rules:
Year is 2009
Limit to 10 items selected by most often played

01. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home
02. The xx – Islands
03. Cale Parks – Running Family
04. Karen O and the Kids – All Is Love (From “Where the Wild Things Are”)
05. Jay-Z – Run This Town [Ft. Kanye West & Rihanna]

Surprising for me to see that there are only three songs that I didn’t pay for on the list. And those three are mashups or the like. Cale Parks just made the list these past weeks.
