I'm at roughly 160+ gb and 27000+ songs

100000+ songs is an insane amount of but if I counted the number of times I've started from scratch I'd be scarily close.

Wow, I don't know how on earth you keep track. I'd be devastated if that all went down the swanny, touch wood that nothing goes wrong...

I'll admit it is pretty high maintenance in terms of tagging and sorting and stuff. The good thing is that my mate keeps a copy of all my music so I'm safe should anything go amiss.

I struggle to sort the names of 1718 songs But I suppose it isn't like you just woke up to having 100,000 songs. That's a pretty wise idea, especially with that amount of music. I'd be devastated if I lost that.

There're too small intervals on the larger quantities and too big intervals on the smaller.

Not much for me - 4152 songs, digitally. Physically, less than 300. I just restarted my music collection after computer problems.

Actually, when I made these, I wanted them to be comparable in a sense that you could use them in statistics. If I had done what you suggest and make the song span of the groups progressively larger, you would make the categories less comparable and actually lose a lot of information.

Dealing with the two first smaller categories is simple because you can just add them together to make one ranging from 1 to 4999 which is about the same range as any of the others (also explains why they're not f.ex from 1 to 2999 and then 3000 to 5999). Making them increasingly large in the other end wouldn't make much sense, though I can see why one might think it does The thing is we know there are some people who have way larger collections than others - we know there are statistical outliers. If we make supergroups spanning many more songs than the ones the averages fall into that we toss the outliers in, we lose a lot of information about them and they really are the most interesting.

.. But if you have any good arguments as to why you think I should do what you suggest, I'll read and consider.

I have a little more than 3,000 songs. I know a lot of people download discographies but I've never liked ALL of any one artist's music.. ever. A lot of it is made up of single songs too since Trance, Electro, and Hardstyle hardly ever come out on albums. Only vinyls and single MP3s. I delete a lot of stuff too and only keep what I really like.. which gets old after awhile and replaced by new stuff.
