I have an ancient MP3 player. The Creative Zen Nomad Xtra from 2003. Mine is a 40GB model which has been modified with a replacement 120GB hard drive. I have over 17,000 tracks on it. I use it almost exclusively in shuffle mode.

Oftentimes it will play a tune, and then follow it up with a track that is so crazy opposite of the previous that I dub this situation "aesthetic whiplash". For example, the segue from Infected Mushroom to The Ventures - which did actually happen, and was the direct inspiration for the mix.

Do you recognize the cover art? It's from the picture sleeve of the 45rpm single of "Can't Stand Losing You" by the Police.
