The best gift I got this season of IPOD. What an amazing little device. Aside from the device itself, the nice thing is to delve into the existing music collection to choose what to put on it. I have over 300 CDs, and that barely fills my little flat cube. Right now, I am downloading onto it, and am reliving some amazing experiences and songs.

Playing right now on ITunes: A live version of "Easy" by the Commodores. You are forced to relive some amaizng songs. "Easy" is probably one of the greatest songs of all time. "Why in the world would anyone put chains on me/I've paid my dues to make it/Everyone wants me to be what they want me to be/I'm not happy when I try to fake it/That's why I'm easy/ Easy like Sunday morning." Poetry.

Morcheeba, "Part of the Process." "It's all part of the process/we all love looking down/ All we want is some success/ But it's never around."

Curtis Mayfield, "Kung Fu." Greatest Mayfield song of all time despite the mundane title. "My momma brought me in a ghetto/ There was no mattress for my head/ She couldn't call me Jesus/ I wasn't white enough she said." Deep.

De La Soul, "Three Feet High And Rising." In particular, "Buddy." "Menemeneme/ Say what/Menenenememe/ Say what?/....Ms. Crabtree/ I hope that you're not mad at me/ 'Cause I told you it was your buddy/ That was makin' me ever so horny...." or "Jenifer's Taught Me" "Jenifer oh Jenny/Lost her favorite penny/ So I gave her a dolla/ She kissed me and I holla-ed."

Archie Bell & The Drells, "Tighten Up." "I'm Archie Bell with the Drells/ From Houston Texas/ We can not only sing but we can dance just the same/ This is a song we call Tighten Up/ Here is the sound we Tighten Up to/ First, the drums..." Incredible instrumental follows up.

Man, the sounds can be your friend...
