    Just like I've heard it said, the best way to drink whiskey is how ever you freekin' like it. Same can be said for how you like to listen to music, no?

    We typically listen to a shuffled playlist. Unless it's vinyl because getting up every 3.5 mins gets lame very fast.

    hifi fans were much more fit in those days!
    (jumpin' up to change rekkids after every song -- 'specially in the New Wave days, when 2 minute long songs came back with a vengeance!)

    As part of a misspent youth,
    The 1st guy who could stand up
    Had to swap the record and grab
    A round of brews.
    Sometimes it was a few minutes
    for that to happen.
    At some point nobody could stand up.
    Party over. I'm not sure what the modern
    Protocol is.

    Funny. I'm listening to Celine Dion right now. Started out listening to Aldo Nova but found out he co-wrote and produced some of her early stuff so had to follow that trail.

    Turning this thread from poetry (which was funny) back to the off topic subject of how we listen to our music.

    A few people have said they listen to the entire album, some have said they mostly listen to an entire album, but will skip a few songs they don’t like, others have said that they only listen to to “good songs” on an album, and others have said they randomly skip from song to song. I probably do a little of each of these, but tonight I realized something else that I wonder if other people experience. I have some albums that don’t even know the songs on. I can’t skip to the “good songs” because I don’t even know which songs are the good songs, I just know I like the album. I came to this realization tonight listening to Norah Jones. I love her as an artist and listen to her about as much as I listen to any other artist, but I know very few of her songs by name. I just put her music on and listen...and the enjoyment level has gone up since I got her SACD box set.

    I understand what you are saying about Nora Jones. I have these albums, and listen start to finish.

    I have the same issue with Pink Floyd. Most of the handful of PF songs that I like are on either Momentary Lapse of Reason or Division Bell, but the rest are buried in the other albums, and I don’t know their names...

    ...There are very few artists that are capable of putting out an entire album where each song sounds totally different and engaging and not just filler for the one or two hits that are on it.

    Precisely -

    I’ll use the example of Steely Dan’s Aja - as much as I really enjoy several tracks on this album (Peg, Black Cow, Josie, Home At Last), there are a couple (Aja, I Got the News), that I just don’t care for. I’ve heard the ones that I don’t like (many times), and I know I don’t like them - so why would I listen to them on my play list, or listen to them as part of an end-to-end album listening session?

    I know, many of you probably have many albums that you enjoy every song on, and in that case, more power to you - listen start to finish, and enjoy! As I said early on, my own listening time is too valuable to me, to listen to songs I don’t care for:-)
