I often switch out my portable library of about 100 songs. I find em on hypem.com..great website to find new music.

I want all my stuff in lossless if possible

(did i mention i examine all my music files spectrographs, yes lossy materials are on original cds, people just care about making quick bucks so they dont try to get the original recording , they just master stuff in lossy format and make it loud)

but sometimes i cant get all my stuff in lossless because: for example i want this rap or pop song, but the album version is very explicit . so i have these options:

1) get it from itunes and amazon(lossy)

2)look for a compilation album that you know is kid friendly..like "now thats what i call music"(compilation albums usually have lossless/ lossy mixed into them)

3)see if they sell digital single at bandcamp or the artiste's original site

4)buy a promo album for the track [from http://www.discogs.com/(largest site to buy cd  and vinyl )] (but the price for the album plus shipping would be too much considering i need more clean version songs , meaning i have to buy album after album and pay shipping)

Uhh.. why clean? Doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose?

Well not really , some songs are very dirty and actually sound better clean(not clean as beep the word but replace certain words with others so it sound normal) 

for example compare:

 (dirty version)

and

(clean version)

this dirty version does sound better (the edit make the sound sound horrible)

also , it would be more presentable , meaning even a kids should be able to listen to your songs

now compare these

 (dirty)

and

(clean)

the edit version here is more acceptable (doesnt alter it much , that it sound different from the original)

 

a final example would be: take the pop sound James blunt - "your beautiful" 

(Dirty version)

in the original version there is on part where he said"you can see from my face  that is was f****g high"

now for some people it would be acceptable or they would like it , but to me its a love song and the cursing didnt fit it(but other may disagree)

the edited version replaces the the bad word with "you can see from my face that i was FLYING high" which i more acceptable

For those of you who updated to iTunes 11, how do you check how many songs you have?

 

I know how many songs I have on my iPod/iPhone, but I have 96/24 Files in iTunes that I can't sync to my iDevices, and I want to know what my complete song total is.

 

I was able to check in iTunes 10, but with the new update, I don't know how...
