Hey Mr DJ

The soundtrack to your life is several gigs of random songs from three crates of CDs and two Christmases worth of iTunes gift cards.

Meaning you hear the same old songs when you're working out, driving home from the office, or hosting a soiree chez vous.

Time to face the music. Song shuffle just isn't cutting it anymore.
