No, I didn't get tired of it. The discovery that I made was that I can't have music videos mixed up with non-videos. In fact, it's probably best if no videos are used at all in the making of a playlist. Because then I feel obligated to watch the darn things and sometimes start them over. Darn videos anyway.
When I first started creating playlists, I'd burn them to CD - but no one makes CD players anymore, especially not the kind you can take along on walks with you. So I switched to using my iPod Nano a few years ago. Then, two years ago, my husband bought an iPod Touch for me for Valentine's Day. Open the heavens, the angels were singing on that day. A device I could use to Skype, text, play games *and* listen to music? Wow, color me impressed.
I have music, music videos, even movies on my iPod now, and before this round of revisions I'd never noticed that, in my playlists, the videos always distract me. Always. I hook it into my radio, a video comes on and whammo! Eyes are dragged to the iPod, not my computer. Take a walk and I find myself tripping over sidewalk cracks because if a video is playing I'm not watching where I'm going.
Not sure what this says about me, but no more videos in my playlists. Even if I have a buy a song twice to get a 'just' song and 'with video' song on my playlists.
