    Nah, I usually have something I want to hear. Random play usually loses my interest quickly.

    I shuffle my iPod every once in a while, but I usually skip songs I don't like

    I usually listen to shuffle, unless of course I'm in the mood for something particular. But the way I am I don't like listening to the same song too often, so that works for me pretty well.

    Why would you put songs you don't like on your iPod?

    And unless I have something very specific I want to listen to, I'm on shuffle 99.9% of the time.

    Sometimes I'm in the mood to listen to some songs but other times I don't. Besides, I only have 200 songs on a 16GB iPod Touch, I'm too lazy to clean it out right now

    i can't really shuffle or play random- i have a few concept albums i listen to and the order has to be kept- helps me with my thought process/writing.

    I often shuffle tracks in iTunes. Its hilarious to hear Erasure followed by Dethklok.

    Shuffle can be cool sometimes. It's like putting on the radio only you shouldn't hear any song you hate, since you picked them all.

    I have my music on shuffle 99% of the time. I like to hear such random orderings as Kreator -> Flogging Molly -> Blood Duster -> Richard Thompson -> Die Krupps etc etc etc etc

    I always shuffle my music. I prefer that to hearing every single song from 1 band. Variety FTW!

    Always random for me - there's nothing quite like Lene Marlin leading in to In Flames for a bit of juxtaposing.

    Hardly ever shuffle. I make my own playlists if I want to mix it up, so I know one of my fave songs are coming up every time.

    Yep, but most of the time I follow up by hitting 'next, next, next, next, aaahhh there we go"


    One of my favorite shuffle moments is playing on xlive with the music playing.
    A popular song is ending, then a grenade lands next too you.
    You dive out of the way, stand up, and next thing you hear is heavy guitars slowly crunching in , matching your revenge plan.

    In my case, that rarely happens. Usually one of the gf's cheesy songs start playing, and I start killing to 'true colors'

    I shuffle my music all the time, baby. But it sucks, especially when you're listening to your ipod, and you keep having to press for the next song until you find something you like.

    Usually shuffle for me unless I'm in a mood for something specific.
