Sometime years ago (at least 8 years, probably more like 10) I dumpster-dived an old, old MP3 player. It's a Samsung YEPP, and it's so old it has a parallel port connection and uses SmartMedia cards. It was loaded with songs, but I never hooked it up until now. Now I have a list of the tracks in its 64MB memory (32 internal, 32 on a SmartMedia card).

They give a snapshot of somebody's state of mind, of the music they liked, and of a time somewhere around 2000ish. (I haven't figured out the latest song on it, but it's after 1998 at least.) Here they are:

-- internal memory --
God - Tori Amos
Across The Universe - Fiona Apple
Smells Like Teen Spirit - Tori Amos
Absence of Fear - Jewel
Imagine - John Lennon
I Know - Fiona Apple
Nightswimming - R.E.M.
Knight Rider theme
-- SM card --
Adia - Sarah McLachlan
Lightning Crashes - Live
Hanging By A Moment - Lifehouse
The Dolphin's Cry - Live
I Alone - Live
Bad Days - Fuel
Beautiful - Creed
With or Without You - U2

I am so there on the Fiona Apple/REM/Sarah McLachlah/Live thing. Especially Live.

I think I would want to be friends with the original owner of it.

Yeah, but the Fiona Apple "across the universe" came out in 1998.
