    How do you use it, if you do?

    For example, a country song must be really good to get more than three stars. A Grateful Dead song must have something wrong to get less than four, and five is default.

    I tried doing a little of that in iTunes during one of my organizational frenzies. The problem is, a song's rating often depends on my mood. It's too subjective.

    BTW, I'm as much of a Dead fan as anyone else, but even they had some mediocre songs.

    Part of what made a GD song was being there. Listening to a recording is kind of inert compared to them live. Since it's no longer possible to see them live, I'd have to lower GD a star across the board for that.

    I am the same way. I tried to orginize my music, but its just not possible. I for one like to listen to the whole album as a package. There is a reason I bought the album in the first place. So trying to grade individual songs is pointless; because as you say diffrent moods alter how enjotable a song is.
