...And just wait until you put a boook or two on your iPod or (one of my favorites) lectures on the Byzantine emperors or French lessons (okay, so I haven't started yet) or The Naked Scientist or ... the possibilities are endless. Do yourself and your ears a favor, though. Ditch the earbuds and get yourself something better. The potential accessories are endless...

Have you heard Germaine Lubin's version? It's in French, but gives me goosebumps every time.

Cornflower - we have Itunes, but I need to take the time to learn how to download to my MP3 player! I already listened to Jessye Norman this morning - thanks, it lifts the soul!

Congratulations on getting iTunes installed on your computer. Should we cut your credit cards now? ;)

I am with you about eclectic tastes. There is nothing like a diversified music library.

Itunes is great fun! I've lost many an hour browsing there myself. My husband really enjoys downloading (free) podcasts which are available on any subject you can think of.

iTunes seems like a licence to print money to me because it's so easy to buy the music and have it in the iPod within a nano-second. I'll own up right now to being an opera-loather and as soon as I hear it on the radio something grates horribly in my head and my ears and I just can't bear it, so to be made to sit through one would be a good way of torturing me.But then not everyone likes Freddy either (but I love him) so I guess it's OK to admit to these things.And yes I'm ditching the earbud headphones too.

I have yet to sit through an entire performance of Tristan. Evan a Wagnerite like me finds it rather too much to take as it is so overwhelming. The Liebestod is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever and whether it is an orchestral version or the full vocal it is stunning. Jessye Norman has a fabulous voice but do try the old recording of Birgit Nilsson. Wow!
