How do you organise your music?

I organise my music as so:
/(Artist) [(Album)]/(Artist) - (Album) - (Track) - (Title).mp3

Thing with this is, I have many artists and albums so when ever I open "my music", it takes a while to load.

I don't particularly like:
/(Artist)/(Album)/(Track) (Title).mp3


Anyone organise theirs in a special way?

Back in my windows days I would compulsively try to have them all titled the same and it would be:

Artist - Album Title 00 Track Title.mp3

But now I just use iTunes to do it and spend my time adding in useless details to that...

I also use iTunes and with Libra I switch between different iTunes Libraries.

Today it's iTunes, but back in my WinAmp days, it was...

Artist\Year. Album\Track Number. Artist - Title

Outside of all things digital, I keep my music in different shelves. One for all albums, one for all singles, one for compilations, one for soundtracks, and all vinyl by artist.

I just make sure all my tracks have the correct info in iTunes and then let it sort the folders.

You know, I've never used iTunes. Isn't that wild? It's because 80% of my music is in FLAC format, which silly Apple is not a big fan of apparently. :(



Winamp forever!!!
