• A journey of musical discovery

    If your eyes are windows into the soul then surely your iTunes is is a guided tour of who you are. Back in the 80's and 90's you could learn alot about a person by looking at his or her music collection. You could go as far as you wanted, down to the finest point. How it was presented. How it was ordered and organised, alphabetically? chronologically? Autobiographically? (Thankyou Nick Hornby).

    Those were the days of mix tapes and mix CD's. It was one thing to see what a person had in their collection but another thing to see what they thought what you would like. I could never stop there though. Being the voyeur that I am I always wanted to hear what people played for themselves so I'd compare a mix tape or cd that they would give to me and a mixtape they made for themselves. Every now and then you would find an anomaly. It could be an indescrestion of musical taste or a clash of interests. but in any case you got a little closer to knowing this person.
