    For mature audiences only

    Determined to be the last person in America to buy an Ipod, I just purchased a Sandisc Sansa Rhapsody MP3 player. I put all that I usually listen to on it and still have tons of space. Who is listening to what these days? Suggestions like Barry Manilow will be dealt with harshly.

    I won an iPod Nano in a contest last December. I've used it three times since then.

    In fact, it is still running on its initial battery charge.

    I have an iPod that hubby gave me for my 50th birthday. I tried to charge the battery one night when I had only a few minutes, then gave up and put it away.... and forgot where I put it for several months. (I think that officially qualifies me for the 50+ forum. ) I finally found it when I looked in one spot for the 3rd time. I have favorite tunes on it which I downloaded from iTunes or ripped from CD.

    I have a 2 GB Creative Zen mp3 player. I have CSN, CSNY, Led Zep, Beatles, Hendrix, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Moody Blues..... and on. Quite a range, actually. You get an explorer program that will let you add/remove tracks

    I was filled with incredulity when confronted with a post called "For mature audiences only" authored by the one and only TWL. Until that shock wears off, I cannot respond to the actual question.

    Your comments, DG, beg the question ...

    TWL started the thread, but is he allowed to post any further replies?

    Excellent question, Tom. I think as time moves forward, the shock will wear off, which would mean he could post any replies he wants. I'm disappointed, of course, that he doesn't share a love of the man who IS the music -- the man who writes the songs:

    Iíve been alive forever,
    And I wrote the very first song.
    I put the words and the melodies together,
    I am music,
    And I write the songs.

    I write the songs that make the whole world sing.
    I write the songs of love and special thing s.
    I write the songs that make the young girls cry.
    I write the songs, I write the songs.

    My home lies deep within you,
    And Iíve got my own place in your sole.
    Now, when I look out through your eyes,
    Iím youíg again, even though Iím very old.

    Chorus

    Oh my music makes you dance
    And gives your spirit to take a chance,
    And I wrote some rock íní roll so you can move.
    Music fills your heart,
    Well, thatís a real fine place to start.
    Itís from me itís for you,
    Itís from you, itís from me,
    Itís a world wide symphony.

    LOL... I had a Shuffle that I was given as an 'attaboy' from my employer. The audio quality is not so good in my opinion... poor dynamic range, background hiss, distortion, etc. I gave it to my son and went back to my CD player.

    I'm using a Creative Nomad MUV 256k player for over a year now. I think I have about 1 1/2 hour of music, which is enough that when it repeats I'm not aware. I ride with a spare battery, as there is no warning, player just stops when battery is dead. Today it died 5 minutes into ride but couldn't find my spare. Found it on the roof of the car when I returned from ride. Didn't do me any good there. Playing mostly 1970 and 1980 music. With faster beats to speed up my pedaling. O' I wish it were that easy. Although the Theme from Miami Vice TV show does perk me up.

    That's a nice little mp3 player. Easy to load and use. I like that it will play wma files as well since I have a ton of them on my computer. I am one of those weird folks who still buy CD's instead of downloading individual tunes from the web.

    Anyhow, I would like to recommend anything by Jerry Douglas. My favorite three albums are: Lookout For Hope, Slide Rule and Restless On the Farm.

    We got a free iPod in the mail last year. Turned out to be a gift from our bank for opening a new account. It's still in its squeaky clean little hard plastic box in a drawer around here somewhere. I have no idea what to do with it. When I want to listen to music, I turn on the car or home sound system (i.e., "radio", "CD player"). To me it's like bottled water: I know people who must have it, but to me its use is still largely a mystery...

    First thing I loaded on my unused iPod was about 50 Bob Dylan songs. Which is consistent with my signature.

    The twins get shuttled off to school in two weeks. That means I again will be able to enter "The Den"
    where our home computer resides. Imagine, accessing the internet from home instead of at work.
    I've seen my kid's IPODS so I do know what they look like, but I'll just be thrilled to be able to use
    my radio, CD player and Phono (YES PHONO) again. I think all that stuff is still in there too. The house is gonna rock 70's rock, jazz, blues, 50's and 60's oldies. Joplin, Outlaws, Cream, The Band...oh
    the list just goes on and on. Vanilla Fudge, Santana, Stones, Doors...I wonder if they would object
    to arriving at school a week early. Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Procol Harum.......

    TWL,
    Perhaps you could give us some additional direction other than vague threats of bodily harm for suggesting Barry Manilow! What kind of music can you see yourself listening to while riding??

    I, for one, LOVE my iPod. I have the video kind, and in airports or on planes it's great for watching Comedy Central podcasts.

    I have 2,000 songs on it; the only trouble I seem to have is it likes to play the same things too frequently when it's in the shuffle mode. Fortunately, I heard about creating a playlist of songs that haven't been played in a certain time (say thirty days) and this seems to cure this problem.

    But anyway, unlike a bunch of you above, I LOVE my iPod!

    I used to have a cheapo Medion MP3 player from Lidl, it had the same charger as my Nokia phone and meant I only had to carry one charging cable on tours.

    I preferred to "rip" full albums from my CD collection:-

    Fleetwood Mac---Rumours
    Bob Marley-------Exodus
    Vivladi's Four Seasons
    Led Zepplin.....

    were among many other, very eclectic, albums on there.
    songs I could belt out at the top of my voice in the middle of nowhere, brilliant.

    Status Quo- John Lee hooker-Great number of Various Blues and Queen. Not a fan of queen but great for cadence up hills.

    Goes on most rides with me and I have the old basic No thrills one bought cheap last year- just as the new version was about to come out.

    Me, too! I have a fairly old iPod mini. I mostly use it when walking for exercise--I have a 45 minute upbeat playlist on it--and on airplanes to drown out children, and back before I commuted by bike, on the metro to drown out the cell phone talkers. I've got a Christmas playlist I listen to while decorating the house and on the plane ride home every year.

    Jimmy Buffett, Rod Stewart, the Eagles, Boz Scaggs, Eddy Grant, Jimmy Cliff, Eric Clapton, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, John Denver, Leon Redbone, Louie Armstrong, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Seals & Crofts, Simon & Garfunkel, and yes, Barry Manilow...lots of 70's music by male singers .

    One of my all time favorites is the Doobie Brothers album, Stampede. And of course, just about any Dixie Dregs material.

    I bought a Creative Zen this spring so I could ride my exercise bike in the garage without dying of boredom. This mp3 player lets you record directly from a CD player instead of fooling around with a computer. Sounds great, easy to use. Have Italian lessons, Laura Pausini & Nelly Furtado on it so far. Would put some Barry Manilow on but only have cassettes of him!!

    Don't use it to ride out on the road because I like to hear birds singing, tires hissing, etc.
