iTunes uPdate.

About two years ago, I posted my iTunes Library statistics. I’ve decided to update, now that I’ve acquired 650 more albums. Here are the details:

Albums: 1950 (+48%)
Songs: 22,349 (+45%)

I bought a lot of jazz albums with only a few tracks per disc (The Norman Granz Box Set is 7 discs, 11 tracks), but it seems like a lot of the Hip Hop I bought evened that out.

Top Five Songs Genres (same, though Blues at 1621)
Alternative: 5708 (+37%)
Rock/Pop: 5622 (+41%)
Hip Hop: 2157 (+46%)
Jazz: 1917 (+39%)
R&B: 1683 (+20% )

Top Five Albums Genres:
Alternative: 627
Rock/Pop: 464
Jazz: 184
Hip Hop: 180
R&B: 130

Here are some recent acquisitions:

-Queen, 19 albums

I can't believe Queen made 19 albums. I mean how many covers of 'we are the champions' can they do?
