iTunes - June 2009

515 songs, 1:05:38:19 total time for the month of June! Wow! Here's what I can tell you about June: It rained. A lot. I read Robert Morgan's Boone: A Biography (reviewed over on The Bookshelf), and I had a bout with a cold at the beginning of the month and a flare at the end. June sucked, frankly. And yet, it appears that my iTunes library got its biggest workout of the year so far. iTunes Essentials account for 150 of the songs I played in June. Those are playlists prepared by iTunes that focus on a specific theme--be it an artist's discography, the hit songs of a particular year, or even just a common theme throughout the songs themselves. I got to exploring these and realized I had all 75 songs on their George Strait and Alan Jackson playlists, and so I put them together myself and gave it a whirl. Not bad, really, even if they are a tad outdated. So, what did I play in June?

*"All That I Need Is Love," "Love Me Like a River Does" and "Goodnite" are from the Worrisome Heart album. I can't account for why they were played once more than the rest of the songs.

**"Let's Get It Started" was played 3 times from Greatest Hits and twice from Let's Get It Started
