A very respectable playlist indeed - I just got into DeVotchKa recently and think they are great - I love their version of "The Last Beat of My Heart".

My "smart playlists" have gradually evolved - sort of moronic at first (lots of repeats) though they have moved to "above average intelligence" and have resulted in some more interesting mixes.

Hello Mr. Walker,

I suspect DeVotchKa will figure prominently on a lot of persons Year End Lists this year. The band has released a very solid record that is infinitely listenable. But to truly appreciate their powers one must see them live. A true spectacle as it were.

As soon as I can work out some kind of smart playlist meme I will post it on here. I would like to see how iTunes would handle a shared playlist project. The results could be interesting. Stay tuned.

That genius is actually pretty smart. I may just have to give it w whirl some day.
