Hearing Holiday Hooey
I know this is nuts. I know I probably shouldn’t even be blogging this, but that’s exactly why I am blogging it:
I believe iPods are performing some sort of tomfoolery in regard to playing certain songs at certain times of the year. What I mean is, during several weeks near the Christmas holiday, I had the distinct impression that my iPod was playing more tracks that had the genre marked as Holiday than it does any other time. For the record, I tend to often hit the Shuffle mode on my iPod, accessing the entire library and not just one artist/album. I like the variety, and I just hit the skip if I don’t want to hear a particular song. But now that we’re a couple weeks out from the holidays, I’m not sensing as many holiday songs geting randomly picked. And no, I did not add any new holiday tracks to my library this year.
What do you think? Are iPods’ genre tag somehow in cahoots with the date setting?
