how much of your music collection have you actually listened to?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just curious - some of you have collections in the 10,000s of songs - have you actually listened to all of the songs?  I have about 8000 songs in my collection and honestly only have actually played about 2/3 of the songs.

I have my music split into Classical and Considerably Not Classical libraries (the actual names of the playlists). Between the two I have almost 2,000 tracks. My method of populating each library is different. For classical I'll just rip the entire disc, whether I routinely listen to everything on it or not. For the not-classical library I'm much more selective, picking and choosing songs I like. There are some artists where I like entire albums, but they're the exception and not the rule.

 

The reason I do it differently in each place is because, while I'm picky about non-classical music, I can listen to almost anything classical (apart from opera--can't stand it) and find something to like about it. So there are no songs in my non-classical library that I haven't heard, whereas there are dozens of songs in my classical library that I haven't gotten around to yet. I just added a bunch of new music recently, so that's why there's so many untried tracks. Most likely within a month I'll have heard everything at least once.

I have listened to every song from the thousands of albums I legally own, excluding a few dozen free digital albums.
