Some days I feel that I have listened to everything on my iTunes playlist as many times as is possible and that I do not have nearly enough music. On such days, I need a wake-up call like this iTunes list meme: a brief tour of my music library should be enough to remind me that I have lots and lots and lots of music ready to play.

Julie, you are a true child of the 80s.
I like that question of “artist with the most songs.” Mine turns out to be Tom Waits. I wish there were a quick way to count songs by artist.
I hope that the Julie above is my wife of the same name — otherwise there are two Julies running around out there with the same taste in music.
i played along on my blog – thanks :)
Just stumbled on your site, and I love this idea! Being a dedicated, full time music obsessive, I found this a lot fun. Check it out on my blog. Thank You!
Thanks for checking out my list and for your comment! Yeah, I figure if I am ever stranded on a desert island, it will be a while before I have to hear a repeat :)
