The above photo of the new line of iPod Nanos brought out this comment from Maura: “This is what happens when you’re the type of person who arranges your CDs by color.” I wondered if I could do any better, especially because the Calvin Harris selection was a particular affront.
Here is the photo in its full-size glory:
James Blunt? Someone at Apple couldn’t think of a better album with a blue cover than the debut by James Blunt? In an effort to help out whoever’s designing Apple’s next presentation, here are my selections for album covers that match the iPod Nano’s new color line. (I decided to leave out black and silver, because those should be gimmes.)
Blue: The Avalanches, Since I Left You
Green: Belle & Sebastian, The Boy With The Arab Strap
Yellow: De La Soul, 3 Feet High and Rising
Orange: Broadcast, Work And Non Work
Pink: Sunny Day Real Estate, LP2
Red: Gang of Four, Entertainment!
I give up on purple. The first Smiths album? I have no idea.
