iTunes is gonna break me.

These bastids have come up with the brilliant idea to do recommendations based on what you've already purchased.
Because they seem to be about 60% accurate in their predictions of what I'll like.
Sixty. Percent.
I just bought, like, $20 worth of songs I didn't realize I needed until just now.
Oh hell. I must never hit up iTunes again. Because this is what I've bought from iTunes in the last few months or so:

Good lord woman! That looks like music that I'd own. As a matter of fact, I've got some of those songs. Connected is the shit -- I love listening to that as I'm driving and the Fugees rule.

That's quite a collection. A modern convenience though so I can definitely relate.

That's a good list! Mixtape time! I understand the iTunes obsession, I have to space out my purchases for everytime I accomplish something important, treat myself -- like Scooby Snacks.

Oh, wow; I love your list!!

In particular, it includes three songs that I absolutely adore: Cool Like That, Express Yourself and Brown Eyed Girl.
