Usually, I listen to a variety of artists. Not for me the album — I’m more a Pandora-type person, except that would cede too much control to some computer that I don’t even know where it is. No, I’m the person that iTunes was invented for: I never (or almost never) buy albums, only single songs, and I never sort my playlists by artist. *
Right now, though, I’m listening to a bunch of Adele. I wonder what my brain is trying to tell me.
*I also never sort them by title, since I often have multiple versions of a song, a trend which has ramped up since I started listening to The Voice. No, I sort them by time, which almost always gives me a random assortment. I could just use the iTunes “random” setting, but then I’d be giving up too much control again.
