This came from my mate Mike, as a profound quote from his mate Dave.
Women do not understand mans need to accumulate music, they seem to think it has something to do with a desire to listen to it.
This got me thinking about one element of my musical OCDness.There's a really really annoying song on the otherwise excellent Vampire Weekend album Contra. The annoying song has that autotune vocal mangling so popular with the kiddies' shitty pop music these days, and is really out of place from such an intelligent band and so long after the studio technique has been used, abused and discarded by serious musicians.
Anyway, all my music sits on a server at home and so it's just files in a directory. I could delete this track in a millisecond and never have to endure the annoying track again. But then I wouldn't have the whole album. There's just some part of me that, regardless of the fact I never want to hear the song again, can't delete the track. So instead I scramble for the remote whenever the track comes on to fast forward it. Holly laughs every time.
