I haven't finished populating my iPod with my 800 CDs, much less the other available material, podcasts, etc., so this may not be, Hell's bells, is not representative of my actual tastes. There's a definite shortage of Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Joe Jackson, Supertramp, and Talking Heads for this list to be taken too seriously.

P.S. I cannot fathom the Applemania surrounding the iPhone.

It is shiny and has pikchurs and costs lots of money and you can buy it in the APPLE STORE ALL BOW DOWN TO THE SHINY APPLE GOD.

So it doesn't work all that well and isn't compatible with anything. So?

I haven't heard anyone mention Aliotta, Haynes, and Jeremiah since, what, 1977. I loved LSD! The trio even played at my high school, if you can believe it. I got an autographed pic of them that night--very thrilling. Where did you find LSD for your iPod?

I'm sure I got it from the iTunes store.
