There's some great ideas, some of which I've already got but many others I've not heard of which I will definitely check out!

Good idea about looking up local music beforehand!

You've all given me loads of inspiration and ideas, thanks everyone! :)

iTunes here I come lol!

@ Isa

Gogol Bordello is also there, although the last show I saw last year here in Madrid was a bit tame. But they are there. Mostly playting stuff from Multi Kulti Contra vs irony and Gypsy Punks. (still the best albums imo.) To list everything in my ipod would make a long list. at present 18226 songs listed : )

Into the great wide open is indeed a nice travel song and album. I have the same with Chris Rea. (Road to Hell and Auberge, to name two tracks.)

If you are filling an ipod, check the Jay and Silent bob get old, podcasts

My faith is restored, Rene. I agree with those two being the best Gogl albums too.

Excellent suggestion for the 'Jay and Silent Bob' podcasts.

I have a measly 1549 songs. But, I only have an original 10G and 8G mini - both have the same selections. The original is getting very tired. But, at least Beerman and I can both still listen to music if we're not seated together on a plane, etc. If we are, we have the earbud splitter adapter. (Hate the 'open seating' airline thing. Want two seats together? That will be $100 more. No please, no thank you.)

Had an internet provider tech out when I was having some connection issues. He saw the 10G ipod and stared at it. Finally:
Tech: "Is that an original ipod?"
Me: "Yeah, just 10 gigs."
Tech: "Wow! I've never seen one before. That's an antique. It's so BIG! Does it still work?"
Me: Speechless due to laughter then "No, I just keep it plugged in because I feel sorry for it and it's cute."

Sorry Sarah, didn't mean to highjack your thread.

I thought of a few more:

Peter Tosh (Equal Rights CD)
Rusted Root (When I Woke CD)
Ray Charles (Genius Loves Company CD - Charles doing duets with various artists)
Is It Rolling Bob?: A Reggae Tribute To Bob Dylan - Vol. 1 (Various Reggae artists doing Dylan stuff. Very unique.)
Moody Bluegrass (Nashville bluegrass versions of Moody Blues songs. Again unique but a great twist.)
Mudcrutch (Mudcrutch CD - Tom Petty's original band reunited in 2008 for this album.)

I love to play acoustic songs when I travel. Power of Two is a nice song for long car trips. I also like to play country music... makes me want to look out the window and think about the lyrics and all.
