    8855, 26 days, 59.9GB.

    Never really choose a specific song to listen to do, first thing I do when I get back from lectures is shuffle the entire library.
    As the collection grows, the shuffle varies. That's how I like it.

    2,177. Why do people feel the need to brag about how much music they own?! 'I have 15,000, couldn't possibly live with less, LOLZ' Jackass'

    About 500.
    I dislike having too many artists to scroll through, and I mainly listen to podcasts on my ipod- the music section is saved for my faves

    9,488 songs (~63GB)

    And it's not like I don't listen to them - the lowest play count is 5.

    Works out that I've spent about 7 months listening to music since I got it. :music:

    I have approx. 17000 songs, but only 3000 in iTunes - I rarely like an entire album so once it becomes obvious which ones I like I cull the rest, but all my music is saved on an external HD just in case my computer ever dies or whatever.

    Hmm, I guess my aim to just be able to write a succinct post without need to overtly explain failed.

    My point is this:
    The masses of songs we have is arbitrary in that if we have these masses so that we have 'choice what we want to listen to', then where do we stop with our freedom of choice? Building a collection of say, 3000 songs that you won't ever have time to listen to, or even want to listen to to even bother in the first place, is the same as 6000, is the same as 100,000: it still ends up not being listened to, even though you have 'the freedom to'. I don't see the point of hoarding songs if they are just passing fancies. Surely you spend/waste the same amount of time downloading a song as deleting one

    It's obviously a personal thing: I have music that never tires with me, and I think that's a good thing. And personally (since you seem to have taken my post quite so), if you get bored with your music to such a level that you have thousands of songs on hand to listen to, all presumably equal in your estimation, then you need to find some real music to listen to. As someone said, quality not quantity.

    My argument has nothing to do with being able to add and expand your musical tastes, rather, questions your musical tastes in the first place. Though it would be nice if I liked as much music as you seem to. I would never have to listen to one song more than once: how freeing that would be
    I have just under 3000 songs on mine. my lastfm says that I have listened to over 7000 songs since the end of last June and this doesn't include the past 3 months I have been at uni when my lastfm has not been scrobbling songs. It is possible to have both quality and quantity. I would get bored of having the same 500 songs in my library because I listen to music alot, when I'm studying, walking to lectures, or in my room just listening to lectures, I like having the feeling of having a song that I haven't listened to for maybe a year or 2 pop up on my shuffle. It is possible to have both quality and quantity

    654. But about 70 of them are my Christmassy songs And I do have a bunch on there that I don't really listen to, the only thing stopping me deleting them is the fact that I actually bought them But at least they're there if I feel like listening to them again I s'pose.
