Disjunction

Those of you with MP3 players probably discovered this some time ago; I myself only noticed when I started keeping large quantities of music on a hard disk (now an iPod)...

Sometimes, when you have it all on shuffle, you get pairs of songs that run together as if they were designed that way. For example, Steve Hackett's "Vampyre with a Healthy Appetite", from the Tokyo Tapes, just ran into Pallas' "Wilderness Years" from Beat the Drum, and I only noticed when Mr. Reed started singing and thought "hang on, is this still Hackett?"!

Of course, it happens the other way, too: my iPod has a disturbing habit of playing the Corrs between Dream Theater and Evergrey, which makes you blink.
