Things I found while "cleaning" iTunes

I had to replace the hard drive on my laptop ("The Precious") because the original was dying (oh, and the Geek Squad wanted to "run more diagnostics" to make sure it wasn't infected - considering that it was both overheating and trying to jump across the desk due to a broken arm I'd say the Geek Squad gets a "fail").  So I was really smart and backed everything up (twice) then replaced the hard drive and upgraded the OS to Windows 7 (pretty sweet).

So I had to re-install iTunes and import all my music/podcasts - something got messed up because almost everything is duplicated.

So I've spent the last few days deleting the duplicate import files (I played a few playlists to see which files were updating information before I started) and I noticed a few things:
  1. I have some really random music tracks from Paste downloads; not that the music is bad it's just really random as to genre and sound
  2. I listen to a lot of christmas music
  3. I have really embarassing taste in the pop music that I listen to at the gym (like Ke$ha)
  4. None of the Janet Jackson or Michael Jackson imported CD tracks duplicated (only tracks from iTunes downloads of their music duplicated) - obviously that says the Jacksons are gods
  5. Glee seems to like songs with titles that begin with "Don't" - "Don't Stop Believin' ", "Don't Rain on My Parade", "Don't Make Me Over", etc.
  6. Lady Gaga got copied three times....scary
  7. Every, single Madonna song/CD I have in iTunes got duplicated in random amounts - I guess Madge really can "reinvent" herself
  8. I am finally able to buy and download music from iTunes without worrying my hard drive will crap out before I get a chance to back-up new purchases; 1st purchase: Katy Perry's "California Gurls", 2nd purchase: Muse's "Uprising" (don't judge)
  9. My iTunes gift card is almost out of money so I have to buy a new one before I do anymore buying

    I heart you for number 3. Man do I have some seriously embarrassing disco remixes which I take to the treadmill. Ain't no shame in Tik Tok though ;)
