Vivazappa, it doesn't have to be an iPod Shuddle, if that is what you meant. Most iPod's and MP3 players have a shuffle or random feature (I think). Personally, I have an iPod and I use my computer and the iTunes DJ feature to random shuffle through all my music purchased or loaded from CD or LP that I've stored on my computer. I have enough hard drive space now and I've loaded almost all my music onto the computer. I love the DJ and Genius features since it plays only my music and it's like the perfect radio station. I especially use the shuffle when I am not sure what I am in the mood for as I eventually hit an artist that I feel like hearing more of. I know a lot of people my age (over 50) don't like digital music but I enjoy it.

Never thought I would, but I recently started buying MP3's (I'm almost 60). I don't own any sort of iPod device. I download MP3's to a flash drive which I can connect directly to the USB port on my home CD player (TEAC CD-P650) which has a shuffle feature. I'm estimating 300 songs on a 4 GB flash drive. I can also record my CD's directly from the player to the flash drive. I'm loving it. The only downside is; I need to keep track and print a list if I want to find an individual song.

What's wrong with Fogerty's "River is Waiting"? I am not familiar with it, isn't it any good?

It's good. It's been on my flash drive for weeks. Fogerty's voice sounds great, maybe better than when he was younger. He was 62 when the album "Revival" (2007) was made. I like the song.

There's a large discrepancy in the quality of the MP3 format, especially the difference in volume levels. When "River is Waiting" comes up on the rotation, it's just too loud.

I can't list them all. I have a Zune that holds 10,000 songs. I have 3000 songs and 300 podcasts.

I play my entire collection (except the podcasts) on shuffle. Mixture of classical, country, rock, pop, showtunes. I would get bored listening to one genre. In 30 min I could hear Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, Olivia Newton John, Michael Jackson, the Stones, the Beatles, Tchaikovsky, songs from Grease, and on and on...

Working man,

I would do this but.......

Everyone has their "thing" set up differently. I think it's funny and cool depending on the person, etc. Some people have every piece of technology for their music. Itunes, earphones.. i don't even know the rest of the tech names off the top of my head and don't care...

The way I have mine works for me. I have a real nice computer stereo. My regular stereo (which is tremendous) hardly ever gets turned on anymore. Lp's are stored away, Cd's never get played, we know the story with radio , so that leaves your stuff...right? So I have mine in some kind of quasi order, MP3's, about 3500 covering a huge chunk of what I want to hear these days or what I feel is worth holding on to. only thing I can't do unless i'm missing something is shuffle it. I mean I CAN shuffle when I 'm listening, I do that like you sometimes when I'm not in the mood for any particular type, just want to hear some music. But since it alphabetizes it the list of songs that appear in the window (you know, in Winamp for example, which I use) you can see 15, 20 songs. If it happens to fall on my songs starting with's going to be songs starting with SA, then whatever's next, maybe Se, then know what I mean? So there's no true shuffle that I can do where it's just mixes up songs completely and then shows me what it mixed. It shows and plays me a song that it picked randomly but that list is still alphabetized, if all that makes sense.

So now one of you guys is going to tell me some big duh moment thing and it will be something ofcourse i should have thought of. But right now with my set up, unless i'm too lazy to really think about it or i'm missing something, not really sure how to get a total shuffle, completely mixing up my songs not just picking/playing a song and then showing my that song from a list that remains alphabetized..

Alex, I don't know what you use to play your digital music, but I use iTunes mostly. It's free and you don't have to buy any mp3s from them, I am sure you can use the software on it's own. Two features I like are "iTunes DJ' which shuffles your entire music library or you can select playlists. The can even create 'smart playlists' which you can include artists, genre, or many other traits. This is great is you want to shuffle through only Heavy Metal or Prog or if you want only albums from the 60's (this one is not so good because rereleased albums don't usually use the original release date.

The other feature I like and you may need an account for this one, but accounts are free, is 'Genius'. It creates it's own playlists from your iTunes library, categories like Stoner Rock, Modern Country, Alternative, etc. You can also select a specific song and start Genius and it will create a playlist based on similar songs. I have saved a couple of those playlists because Genius did a good job. I really like iTunes, not sure if you're using Windows Media Player or Real Player and maybe you can do some cool things with them too, but iTunes has been my choice.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 18, 2011 4:10:59 PM PDT
Here's an example of an "iTunes Genius" playlist.

I chose the first song, and iTunes chose the rest. Check it out:

Hells Bells - AC/DC
La Grange - ZZ Top
Iron Man - Black Sabbath
A Hard Days Night - Beatles
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden
Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin
Pinball Wizard - The Who
Proud Mary - CCR
Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC
Sharp Dressed Man - ZZ Top
All Apologies - Nirvana
Dance the Night Away - Van Halen
Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin

Questions. I'm new to MP3's and I'm trying to learn.

Is there a code in the MP3 file that identifies the song by genre? The Beatles "A Hard Days Night" seems out of place to me on a playlist with AC/DC and Iron Maiden, unless they are all lumped together under "rock". If the first song you choose is country, jazz, blues, bluegrass, etc., is that the genre the "iTunes Genius" would use to build a playlist?

BLT, they do categorize songs by genre, sometimes it's off. Like some bands end up listed as pop, but might be rock and then some rock but are more heavy metal. So, I don't think it's an exact science, but it's usually pretty good. Often I change the genre in iTunes.

Following Rare Goat's example, here's an iTunes Genius playlist that was generated when I picked the fist song "Funky Music" by Rick Derringer. The rest of the list was

It's All Over Now - Johnny Winter
I Don't Need No Doctor - Humble Pie
Lazy - Deep Purple
Rock and Roll Fantasy/Ticket to Ride - Bad Company
Hey Baby - Ted Nugent
Blowin' Free - Wishbone Ash
Statesboro Blues - The Allman Brothers Band
Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo - Rick Derringer
Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin
Jesus Just Left Chicago (live) - ZZ Top
Rock Steady - Bad Company
Never Been Any Reason - Head East
Mississippi Queen - Mountain
30 Days in the Hole - Humble Pie
Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn
Something Inside of Me - Rick Derringer
Boom Boom Out Go the Lights (live) - Pat Travers
One Way Out - The Allman Brothers Band
Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix
Stanglehold - Ted Nugent
Gettin Tighter - Deep Purple
Rock Me Baby - Johnny Winter

Sometimes it repeats artists and sometimes it has even played the exact same song twice in a row, but when you shuffle, you can 'refresh' and it gets you another set of songs. This list above was one I enjoyed so I saved it, not sure if I played it since, but it was a good set. I had saved one other playlist, but usually I like fresh lists where I don't know what's coming next. Just like the radio.
