Or, you could copy the files into a folder, rename them "Track 1," "Track 2," etc... for the order to be more apparent.

Also Tourist, your method of making one album actually makes it goofy in iTunes do to there being multiple artists. Next time, making the Album Artist "Various Artists" consolidates the searches immensely. Other lists would benefit from this; I mention yours since we're on the discussion of classification.

But really, the tracklisting provided with each list here does most of the work anyway.
Yeah, if you were sorting by artist I could see that being a problem. I generally figured people would just dump the album into a playlist and then sort by album. Comes up in perfect order on the three computers with different iterations of iTunes that I've now tried it on. Also about ten of the other lists worked this exact way for me as well.

Even by album view it's messy. Again, picking knits.

Here's what it looks like in my iTunes when sorting by album:



I don't see how that's messy. Maybe it's different on a Mac...?

A one minute audio track consisting of 'BOY OH BOY WOWEE' drowned in reverb and echo would have been amazing.

When you drop into Album view, it separates the album with its individual artists, whereas with "various artists" the album is all intact.

In basic song view it looks solid, like you posted.

Oh! Now I know what you mean. I'd forgotten that exists because I don't use it.

Yeah I don't care for it either for that reason, though for whatever reason my iTunes loves making it the default view.

The moral of the story is that iTunes is a pain in the ass.

If you mark the whole thing as a compilation it should keep it together in all views, no? At least it does for me.

Well, I have eight rankings right now. We'll see where things are at by midnight. I don't want to cut out any participants if I can possibly avoid it, but there has to be some impetus for putting the lists together.

It would be GREAT if this could get done tomorrow because I don't have any classes and can dedicate lots of time to the rankings thread. I'll be sending out reminders this afternoon to help push things along.

Sounds good. I have two more to go (plus the writeups), but should be done by then. Thanks again for the patience.

Same.

I should be done with rankings submitted this afternoon. Listening to Bonnie's list now and still have Mr. V after that.
