OK, winamp’s shuffle feature is

July 29, 2003

OK, winamp‘s shuffle feature is notoriously nonrandom — some songs get played much more often than others. Spinal Tap’s “Back From the Dead” gets played much more frequently than their other songs, for example, and plenty of worthwhile songs never get the nod from those fickle shufflegnomes. I can deal with that, I suppose; I know where the ‘j‘ key is on my keyboard, and I can often pick a song I’d like to hear at the moment. No biggie.

But then winamp goes and does something like play “Grimly Fiendish” by the Damned 6 times in a week. With roughly 6900 songs in my playlist to pick from, you’d think it would mix it up a bit more. Not that “Grimly Fiendish” is a bad song, or anything, but this is very strange nonetheless.
