    I really wish I could know who decided what songs would be bundled with the first version of iTunes back in 2001. It's such a weird mix to listen to with everything from Wilco to Randy Newman and Boney James..

    There were a number of preloaded songs back in the day, although these were – if memory serves – only included when you bought a Mac with iTunes on.

    I had a G3 iMac which I bought around 2001, and I still have some of songs that came on it in my iTunes library. Love Shack by the B-52s is one of them, off the top of my head.

    Yeah I guess it was only if you bought a new mac that came with iTunes in 2001. Really weird mix of songs, I guess to have a little of something for everyone. I don't know why I kept most of them all this time but once I stumbled upon them the other day I was glad I had. Took me back to those early iTunes days.

    Here's the list of the ones I still have. I remember the B52's too but for some reason didn't keep that one so this isn't necessarily the complete list.

    That was a neat read, the press release I mean.

    Nice of Apple to bundle some songs with it as well...very Tim Cooky.
