OK Computer, you take it from here

Well, this is intriguing.

After the Bells, it seems I'm not quite in control of the order of play. I had AC/DC set up first, as previously explained, but once I loaded up the first big chunk of folders on the USB, something went a little wonky.  Either the computer, or the USB, or the car, or all three in collusion, decided that pure alphabetical order is not cool.

What should have played after AC/DC (which in itself is the best example of how my life, times, and music collections, have changed) is 1 Girl Nation, a Christian-Girl Power group that was a CD gifted to my daughter, and ended up on the hard drive as well. Quick note for those that will tell me my alphabetical order must already be screwed up with A coming before 1: yes, but that's because I named the AC/DC folder 001ACDC so that nothing would ever come before it.

Anyway, instead of 1GN, I went into a folder of 1990s music.  At least the whole folder itself is intact, so it's not like I'm going to listen to chunks of the collection on random.  Though that's an intriguing idea...

After 1990, I'm not sure what will be next. I decided immediately, in any case, not to try and manipulate the order given to me other than the start.  Had I known this, in fact, I would have been happy to play only Hell's Bells and then let AC/DC come up whenever the computer felt it was time.

This is a digital blitz, after all, so I will defer to the digital DJ.
