I always used to appreciate the offerings of iTunes’ Just For You service, which aims to pick songs you may like based upon your previous purchases. Recently, however, it has started to become slightly erratic and, in some cases, completely outrageous.
The problem is, every “novelty” song you purchase, every musical “theme” you purchase, every song you think “Ah, it’s only 79p” before purchasing, is logged by Just For You and it’ll never let you forget it.
Here’s what I was confronted with this week:
Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice
What Would You Do – City High
Lonely This Christmas – Mud
U Can’t Touch This – MC Hammer
No thank you, Just For You.
My advice: Click “See All” on the Just For You section of the iTunes Store Music page and regularly tell Just For You the music you don’t like and already own. Hopefully this will stave off suggestions like Hanson’s MmmBop and Sabrina’s Boys.
