I installed iTunes 10. First impression? I hate the new icon.
Second impression? Ping is pretty useless with only 14 artists available to follow.
Third impression? It's amazingly hard to distill "Music I Like" into a mere 10 songs. I finally came up with 10, but it's amazing how much of my music library is *not* represented.
I tried to pick songs that represented artists for whom I have and enjoy much of their work. No one-hit wonders.
1. Sleepwalker | For Your Entertainment | Adam Lambert
I love every song on his album. It's the highest rated album in my iTunes Library. I've only got one of his albums so far, but that's not my fault :)
2. Jigue | Try Anything Once | Alan Parsons
The Alan Parsons Project was the first band/artist that I was ever a true fan of. It was a hard decision to go with this or "The Eagle Will Rise Again", but one of APs strengths is their instrumentals so I picked this one.
3. In Pieces | Unbreakable | Backstreet Boys
Almost impossible to pick a single favorite, but I wanted one from the latest album. It's a bonus track, but I love it.
4. Affirmation | Affirmation | Savage Garden
Represents Darren Hayes as well. "I Believe"
5. Blasphemous Rumors | Catching Up with Depeche Mode | Depeche Mode
One of the few bands that I listened to between college and recently, when I got back into the pop music scene.
6. Hello | Fallen | Evanescence
"Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken"
7. Burning Times | Wytches | Inkubus Sukkubus
I was looking for artists for whom I had more than just a few songs, and I have a lot of Inkubus Sukkubus although I haven't listened to them much lately.
8. ADLIDAS | Schizophrenic | JC Chasez
He also represents all of my NSYNC songs. I would have chosen "Until Yesterday" but it's no longer available on the iTunes store. Actually, "Not Sleeping Alone" is my favorite from the unreleased album.
9. Because of You | Breakaway | Kelly Clarkson
The only song I've ever talked to my therapist about :)
10. F**k You | It's Not Me, It's You | Lily Allen
Not only is Lily Allen great, but there's a fantastic fan video out there of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuDJmVkP
