06:00 am: cop-out post: iTunes meme
Tagged by LA Daddy, in an anonymous reader kind o' way.

I started to do this with everything in our iTunes, but the extremes are quite often Peter's or Teddy's stuff. So I did mine instead. (Teddy's playlist, with 79 songs, is too short for this meme. I gotta rip some more of his music.)

I have virtually no jazz and no classical at all on iTunes, though they dominate my CD collection. They're not as good for working out, which is the ostensible reason for my buying the iPod. And yes, my Chillin' playlist is my longest, and Dancin' is right up there, and classical and jazz would be perfect for those, but it's a Nano, fer pete's sake.

With all that bluster, here's the meme:
