I rate you iTunes!

Apple iTunes rates high!

Department sent to: iTunes Appreciation Department

Hi there,

As a daily user of iTunes, I thought I'd let you know about an interesting experiment I've been working on. For the while, I've been rating every single song I own, and given that I've been buying CD's for a many years now, you can imagine that that's at least more than one hundred songs!

It's taken almost six months to do it but I finally finished rating everything last Thursday and duly bought doughnuts for everyone to celebrate, sadly there are no doughnuts left otherwise I'd send you one as well, since you wrote the application I rated them on, I think you deserve one! Actually, you DO deserve one, attached is 50p, hope that covers it!

So after rating them all, I thought I'd find out exactly how good my music collection is, and this is what's quite interesting, here are the results...

Star RatingWhat I take it to mean%
*Awful song!0
**Not very good song5
***Average song, a kind of "yeah, it's alright"43
****Marvellous song!43
*****Really marvellous song!9

Now, you may think that this isn't very interesting, however, I always thought that my music collection was really good, but this actually tells me that it's mostly average! Outrageous! Further still, apparently 5% of the stuff I own is rubbish! Seriously, and I don't even own the Spitting Image Greatest Hits!....yet.

However, I have been consoling myself with the fact that 51% of the music I own is actually fantastic! So perhaps that makes it ok. Also, I may go out and buy a few "classic albums" just to bump my percentage up, is this cheating do you think?

Anyway, I hope this is as interesting to you as it was for me, perhaps you can try the same and let me know what your percentages are? Maybe in the future, everyone's music collection will have an iTunes index associated with it! Today, Vince's music collection, tomorrow, THE WORLD!!

Cheerio!

Vince.
