Joy of alphabetizing

Today, in moving a bunch of stuff from one section of the basement to another, my son and I stacked all our CDs on one table, where I organized them alphabetically. (One stack for A, another for B, etc.) I'm strangely intrigued and pleased by the results, especially at their uneven distribution.

C is the tallest stack (blame the Cure primarily), followed very closely by B (Beatles and Blur and Bowie...), then S and then P and then M, less closely. There's nothing under Q (I must need a best of Queen) or Z. The X pile is actually not too shabby, though, thanks to XTC, X-Files soundtracks, and all those homemade compilations that my friends labeled "Xmas mix [fill in year]".

dirae and all_timeqb may be amused to know that when my son picked up the Judybats album "Down in the Shacks Where the Satellite Dishes Grow," he said in delight, "There's a dog in a backhoe!" I pointed out that it was actually a pickup truck, but yes, true about the dog.

For Z, try Zeromancer?

My C and D piles (Cure/Cocteau Twins and Depeche Mode/Delerium) are always huge.

I'll look up some Zeromancer to sample. Must round out the alphabet. :)

D wasn't too shabby a stack for me either, thanks to Dead Can Dance and some others.

Quite. :) Incidentally, I noted I have quite the great collection of mix CD's from you. They're under K for Kimma.
