    There’s a problem with this: iPod and iTunes increment the play count every time a track starts. They also weight slightly by play count on shuffle. That means that if you’ve got a mediocre song that you often skip, it’ll still spike in the play count.

    For example Stereolab’s “Vonal Declosion” comes up at a whopping 126 in my count, while second place is Herb Alpert’s “Little Spanish Flea” with only 46.

    I think it’s pretty cool that you listen to The Shins and The White Stripes. Granted, you have some “The Big Chill” type picks there, but all in all, pretty hip! (no Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett?) I wish more law professors, particularly those that aren’t of the bow tie wearing variety, would share their music preferences with their not-that-much-younger students. Maybe then we wouldn’t think of you guys as old fogies! I think many students would be surprised to see that they have a bit more in common with their professors than they would like to think!

    Feeling Good is not an objectively weak song! It’s not as good as Wild is the Wind or I Put a Spell on You (god, I need to learn how to capitalize titles), but it’s a start. :-)
