Keep iPod songs organized in the right albums Video Transcript
-Have you tried listening to a complete album on your iPad only to realize that some of the tracks are missing. For some reason, the are not grouped with the rest of the album. Hi, I'm Richard Peterson, and today I'm going to show you how to make sure all the songs on your iPad stay grouped in the album they belong. Now, this is a common problem with the compilation albums like movie sound tract or the songs of the 70s [unk] commercial, but this also happens when the artist have songs on an album that feature another artist. For example, I have Britney Spears' Femme Fatale album on my friend's iPad Touch that I borrowed. When I look here on what seems to be the entire album, you will notice the track 6 and 8 are missing. Where are they, well, they were categorized under a different artist. Here's track 6 which is Britney featuring Sabi and here's track 8, which features Will I Am. Right now, we're looking at artist view even if we look at the album view, the same problem exist. The iPad thinks there 3 separate albums. One of them with the majority of the song and the other 2 are the 2 separate songs with featured artist. Another example is this movie sound track, which has a different artist for almost every song. It has sorted the songs into separate albums. This can be really annoying when if you want to listen to the entire album from beginning to end. To fix this, we need to go into iTunes. Click up here to sort your music by album and then locate the album you want. I'll start with the sound track. Select all the songs in the album, right click, and then click on get info. Click yes when ask if you are sure you want to edit multiple items. Now, from here, click on the options tab and then check the box that says part of a compilation and then yes, and now I have to re-sync our iPad and sort by album. All of the songs we selected will be grouped together into one album. If you sort by artist, however, they will still be separated. This should be fine for the sound track album because all the songs really are by different artist, but for the Britney album, it's all essentially the same artist with just a couple of songs that have a featured guest, so I'd rather just have them all categorized under Britney instead of separated as multiple artist. To fix this, select all the songs in the album and go back to the edit multiple item window like we did before. Now, you'll see a filled called album artist. You can type in the name of the artist here, but this will only help you sort your music in iTunes. It won't solve the problem we have in the iPad because iPads including iPhones currently won't sort by album artist. Possibly, the easiest solution is to just change the artist field, so all the selected songs have the same artist. This of course gets of rid of the featuring artist altogether. So, if you want Will I Am credit for reaching his goal collaborating with every recording artist in the world, you can just add his name in parenthesis next to the song title. Now, the next time we sync our device iTunes, we can find all our music organized by artist and in the right they were meant to be. I'm Richard Peterson with CNET.com.

Many of the gods, goddesses, angels, demons and elementals of the universe have conspired to send messages from beyond through the Red Hot Chili Peppers for the current civilization. After a year and a half of channeling and organization these messages have taken the materialized form of the double album "Stadium Arcadium." Silence has curled up next to the band and taught them her song. If you let go and let this music take you by the hand it will take you flying through skies of sound. It will zoom you up well above outer space and it will show you around planes of existence that do not share the laws and conditions of this reality. And when it brings you down to earth it will dig deep into that shit. It will also teach you to fall back without landing on your ass and to fall forward without falling on your face. Let go and you can be two places at once, you can be as big as the whole universe and as small as an atom simultaneously. You can experience time forwards, backwards and sideways. You can unite with a star or a plant. You are everything you see around you and the ideas in this music may get you to start realizing what a great power that can be. The Red Hot Chili Peppers are learning all these things with whoever wants to come along. They are letting the invisible glorious kingdom of music give them shelter. They have crawled inside the body of music and they are inviting you inside. All is illusion which gives us all the wonderful opportunity to play with everything in existence. In the words of one of the supreme gods of funk, "Nothing is good unless you play with it." The Red Hot Chili Peppers have twisted up nature into a decidedly psychedelic form. They have made music that can drive you to a place where nothingness is motion and movement and stillness are one. They have played with light, darkness, sound, silence, form, air, and space to make music that plays with the listener. Born four separate people, they have successfully become one. Their music is proof that four minds can become one, which prompts the question, why not a billion minds? They recommend that you shut off your mind and let "Stadium Arcadium" fly you away to place where everything and nothingness are one. They recommend that you let the music take you away to a place where everything is OK. The Red Hot Chili Peppers and their holy guru Rick Rubin have put together music that can take you out of your body, so come inside the great outdoors. Breathe the water. Drink the air. Sleep on a cloud. Run up the beam of light from a star.
Natalie Walker. Urban Angel. Biography. Born and raised in Indiana, vocalist Natalie Walker is an artist whose lilting, melodic voice and lyrical reveries reflect a life journey of determination and self-discovery. With musical influences ranging from Alison Krauss to Portishead, Jewel to Lauryn Hill, Beth Orton to Bjork, the former lead singer of downtempo electronic group Daughter Darling now delivers her own unique, haunting sonic landscape that is at once organic, ethereal, elegant and entrancing. ?Creating music is my outlet,? says Natalie. ?I was born to sing. When I don?t, I feel empty. When I do, I feel fulfilled. It?s that simple.? Urban Angel, her solo album debut, was co-written by Natalie and two-man production team Stuhr. ?I worked with two really great producers out of Brooklyn, Dan Chen and Nate Greenberg. They?d send me the rough copy of a song and the music would just evoke emotion,? she explains. ?Its like fitting pieces of a puzzle together. When you?re in the studio recording its all very raw and real. I try to make a song new each time I sing it. I want it to be unforgettable. My producers are amazing. They forced me to develop my real voice. I?ve improved my vibrato and my tone. Stuhr delivered exactly what I asked of them. It couldn?t have happened more perfectly.?
