I try and categorize all of my songs to the place where they first appeared, even if it includes soundtracks. I don't know about you guys, but putting something under a "Greatest Hits" album hurts more than that. Oh well.

Glad to hear you're doing a more upbeat list next time, Screws, El-Mel's and mine, if it sees the light of day, is decidedly not.

And Khan, if you deduct for Beatles/Radiohead songs, I'd have to deduct for Spice Girls songs...

i was kidding anyway!

as for how i categorize songs, here's what i do. obviously if i bought it off itunes or am importing a cd, i leave the tags as is. but if it's a downloaded song then i do it off the album it was released on. like...beautiful day would be put on atyclb, not best of 90-00 obviously. i tend to shy away from greatest hits stuff, unless i just can't find out what album the song was originally on/can't find artwork for the album.

Oh crap, my computer is really glitchy right now. It's doing better than it was 30 minutes ago, but it's still seems off to me. CPU usage is consistently above 50%, and it's not taking kindly to me closing down programs.

That's fair enough. I don't like any compilation album either - maybe that's just being anal, but I like seeing b-sides represented with their single, unless I can't find it anywhere/it's exclusive to that album.

Now, since I'm on strike from American Idol, I should have some free time tonight if you want to discuss some things on AIM.
You have AIM. Epic. Swap PMs, ElMel.

Always. The only time I list a greatest hits is if it's different in time than the original. For example, Won't Get Fooled Again, which was in my list, came from a greatest hits of The Who, since I've misplaced my copy of Who's Next. But you didn't need to know that, so I wrote Who's Next.

I bought 2 new albums today, breaking my "no new music til Survivor is over" rule.

I don't get what's so wrong about making a greatest hits album? Shouldn't that have universal appeal, and thusly be good?

EDIT: I think I misunderstood. I went from someone called PFan's DI list a greatest hits album in his survivor thread to this.

If it's an altered version, however, like the New Year's Day edit on the Best of 80-90, I'd acknowledge that version. But yeah, if it's the same thing, I'd put it with the original album, too.

And the same goes for me. GH only if I don't have the original album or if it somehow differs from the original.

I just like having it be listed as the real album. I like being more direct into their past history. It's a meaningless idiosyncrasy.
