Well, personally, I'm going to make it a goal to convince my computer that I've listened to everything within one year from now. Maybe shorter. If I listen to 100 "never played" tracks per week, that'll be about 24 weeks. But I know I add lots of new songs all the time too. So a year should be totally doable.

0 / 10,774 = 0%

Done. I did it in less than six months. I added 1,360 songs to my iTunes library in that time period (roughly 100 albums).

What a strange thing this did to my thinking. Had to "get through" all that music.

I wonder what I'll listen to on my commute tomorrow... Anything I want, I suppose!

Now you have to go entirely through your "Once Played" playlist.

now you can root for me on my journey, jake!

(currently at 5420/11570 or 46.8% never played)

i'm not adding at nearly the clip you were (i think my total # may have actually gone DOWN since starting this) but i'm making good progress and enjoying the ride, even putting together a little playlist of my favorite "discoveries" along the way.

if the zune has a never played list i probably should try and go through it. the problem is more than half on what is on my zune has never been played. not even once. in the heat of the moment and all the excitement i was adding like crazy and really didn't think too much into it. the real sad thing is most of what would be on a never played list is on a rarely played list in terms of the cd. i have so many that i rarely play. most of music never gets played much. i keep adding too much to my collection and thus keeping myself from being able or wanting to listen to much of my back catalog.

Been a year since anybody other than Chris G has updated. How you all doing?

Zero, my man. I got through everything a year ago. And I've been listening to stuff as I add it now. I've got a crazy complex Smart Playlist that combines any unplayed stuff + recently added stuff + stuff that hasn't been played in a while + underplayed, highly ranked stuff + random stuff. A very careful amount of each. Ends up being around 350 songs, and I update it daily, so it's constantly refreshed. It's essentially my personal radio station deejayed by the Maggot Brain.
