iTunes and the Party Shuffle algorithm

Posted on July 9, 2004

Maybe it’s just me but isn’t it just plain weird that the Party Shuffle algorithm of iTunes chooses to play the exact same song twice in a row?

And no, I don’t have multiple copies of it in my disk.

The song is rated 4 starts and I have the “Play higher rated songs more often” option turned on but I do have a lot of high-rated songs (makes sense, right? duh…) and I do have nearly 800 songs in my library at this time (after a most drastic spring cleaning).

Oh well, things will improve in time, I guess.
