75,000 and Counting

Post image for 75,000 and Counting

Last January my iTunes library hit the 70,000 song mark. This month I exceeded 75,000.

My latest music listening experiment has been the service provided by lala. I used their MusicMover software to match the contents of my library to songs already present in their own archives. Much to my surprise, they were able to match only half of my songs. It took an entire month to upload the remaining half to their server; now I should be able to listen to (almost) my entire library online from any computer. I say almost because 1,500 songs were not uploaded – they’re either DRMed or in a non-standard format.

From now on, if I’m near a computer, there’s no telling what tunes I’ll pull up. Trout Mask Replica, The Modern Dance, Philosophy of the World, Eskimo? Who knows?

You’ve been warned.

This is so exciting. I’ll go LaLa my library and see what happens. There’s only 14,000 songs, but it’s a start.

Apple bought out LaLa a few months ago. I don’t know what they’ll do with the service, they wanted the programming talent for the iTunes team.
