I’m still messing with playlists. If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll note that I mentioned that one of the fine-tuning problems with my continuous mix of music was the ‘resting’ issue – particularly of Gold tracks.
In other words – if I hear a classic song that I haven’t heard for AGES and I love it, then that’s usually an indicator of a good mix. If I hear the same song again the next day, then the whole mix will strike me as repetitive, even if that was the only song I heard again.
The phenomenon seems directly proportional to the degree to which I notice that the song is playing. Yesterday, it happened to me with Joan Armitrading’s ‘Me, Myself, I’. What a great song. Haven’t heard it in such a long time. Except… it came on again today.
