I currently have 23,249 songs. Okay I know I am just a little obsessed. That is why my new purse addiction is so dangerous. I have 37,897 songs on my hard drive but I can't fit any more on my Ipod. I use my Ipod everyday. I listen to it at work and in my car. I just leave it on shuffle so it is just like listening to the radio but only better. No commercials and no crappy music.
