Songs iTunes Hates

Out of 14905 mostly-random plays of about 3000 songs (the at-work rotation), iTunes refuses to queue these sad eleven:

Eminence Front - The Who
Goin' Out West - Tom Waits
Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad - Tammy Wynette
Beat The Retreat - Richard Thompson
Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Queen
Small Parts Isolated And Destroyed - Nomeansno
Fire on the Bayou - The Meters
What's Golden - Jurassic 5
Nothin' for Christmas - Eartha Kitt
You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch - Thurl Ravenscroft
Rehab - Amy Winehouse

Eminence Front - The Who

This video was one of the things that drew me to the Telecaster, and he's not even playing one!

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch - Thurl Ravenscroft

iTunes refusal here is an outrage.

Fuckin iTunes- I'd ask how it works, but apparently, it doesn't.

Thurl Ravenscroft had the best name, and voice, ever. I think he became a wingnut, and it pains me to think that, were he still alive, he'd probably be writing for Big Hollywood.

iTunes forgets
The spray flies as the speedboat glides

Forgets it's playing

"mostly random" = "I will play this song again when your resistance is at its nadir"

Rough Boys?

Rough Boys?

Yeah, definitely that one, but back then I couldn't distinguish a Blackguard from a Shecter clone.

Keith Richards too, of course.

Just for the halibut, you should clear the ID3 tags and re enter them, or maybe leave 'em blank and see what happens. I'd just be curious what it was about those tracks...

I'm sure it's just the nature of luck. Some never get chosen to play on the team and... 'Scuse me, must go cry.

Crap, I'd pay extra for an app that would block any & all Queen tunes. Needn't be limited to my iTunes, either.

As WV sez: preemp the bastards.
