Why iTunes Is Evil

I load all my favorite music into iTunes. Just like everyone else does. Then I listen to it while I work.

Problem: I get far too involved in the music. It's so distracting that I can't work. It's music I love, after all.

I have to go make dinner. I have to call someone for a story. I have to take a shower. But I can't – BECAUSE I HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE END OF THIS SONG. Then the next one starts. And I have to listen to that one. And by the end of the day, I've listened to some great music and done nothing I was supposed to.

Now, I'm going to go order a pizza because I haven't made dinner. I'll just wait until the end of this song.

Even when I turn mine off the music keeps playing in my head all day, and sometimes night long. Do you think it's those blasted earphones implanting the tunes into my brain?

Crystal, me, too. I have to close all my tabs after a while.

Jan, I also have music playing in my head all the time. The most peculiar songs sometimes. But I can work OK with that.

P.S. to Jan: Right now the song is "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," by Tom Lehrer.
