Sometimes a List is Just a List

MP3sEvery once in a while I get an email from someone wondering how they can download the MP3s listed here. Arnaz just asked that question so I thought I'd spell it out for everyone.

For fun, I maintain a list of the 1600+ albums in my personal MP3 collection. As you'll see, you can drill down and see the individual tracks in each album. It's merely a collection of the song titles sorted by album and artist. I'm not actually hosting my collection on the web so there's no way for you to download the songs.

Back in the day when I used to have the guest blog form I received this rather angry guest blog from Bob who was pretty pissed that I'd list songs without hosting the MP3 files for anyone to grab. Here's how I responded back then and the same applies today, except now my collection is 130+ GB.

Bob, Bob, Bob. Don't you realize you'll catch more flies with honey than you will with vinegar? If you had nicely written me and told me what you were looking for, I would have been happy to help you any way I can. Instead, you chose to ball me out because I'm not hosting 30+ GB of copywritten files so ungrateful wastes of time like yourself can drain all of my bandwidth while pleasuring yourselves in the fruits of my labour.

Sometimes a list is just a list.

Good response! I have a similar list on my website & get requests for them from the few readers all the time, especially from local guys or South America and the odd guy in France (to whom I have e-mailed 20 mp3s :)).

Hi Mike. Nice CD list. Can I trouble you for the John Williams, Greatest Hits CDs 1 & 2, Jurassic Park and Star Wars? If that is too large a request, I am really wanting the greatest hits CDs. Thanks :)
