    Too many choices - are you guys having this problem?

    Ever since I've had a PC in my car, with 1,600+ songs on it, I've noticed that:

    1) I can't listen to a single song entirely - i always skip almost one song a minute.
    2) i get confused as to what the F i wanna listen to. techno now? maybe rap? etc.

    I have an h2 with a 6-disc in-dash changer and i noticed that i never really skipped songs as frequently as on my carpc...

    most likely im obsessive compulsive (lol - some people have told me that but i dont think so...) or i have far too many options than i know what to do with...

    just wondering if anyone else has come across something similar.... are you feeling the same way? that you have too many choices and can't stick to a single song for 3 minutes?

    Yeah, that's the same problem I ran into with my MP3 collection. You keep hearing stuff you don't feel like listening to at the time.

    I currently use XM 90% of the time, and flip to MP3s when I feel the need for something specific.

    I'm a big fan of random myself.
    current system: car2pc adapter playing aux in for a sansa fuze media player. simple. cheap. effective.

    I have over 25gigs of music...the majority of which i had no idea what was there. (I stole it from ipods i have fixed in the past)

    I basically made a list of my favorite songs/cds then threw it on random and only hit next if i really wasnt in the mood, other wise it just runs...and runs...and runs

    ALL I DO is use the random feature on winamp. The playlist I most commonly use is comprised of ALL the songs I have on my hard drive (indian, rap, techno, reggaeton, r&b, etc)... I'll go through the first 2 seconds of like 60 songs then pick one only because im tired of trying to pick something... my drives consist of me picking songs or playing half of a verse and then switching to another song.....

    i may just be tired of my collecton.... =/ i dunno....

    hehe - with 100 gigs, or 25,000 songs, it's even worse

    I can't stand the SQ out of XM so I dumped it, as did my husband, it's gotten worse over the years...unfortunately..

    speaking of which, I need to start looking for some new music..lol

    l0l - wow, that's a lot of music!!!

    I constantly find myself doing the following:
    - Typing in a keyword into a music search engine like "rap" or "techno" or "indian"
    - out of the 1,000 songs that come up, i highlight and download all of them

    The cool thing is - i dont know what the F i downloaded. the even better part is - finding a song, by accident, that you really really like!

    This has happened to me a couple of times! heh.... this SORT OF makes things better but still.... i am at the point where i download hundreds of songs KNOWING that im going to delete them within the next week or two...
