Apple’s making me sick…

iTunes changing music tagged Soundtrack to Filmmusik, another thread and guess what, i experienced the same feature.

I really like some of the “i take care of your problems stuff” like don’t thinking in mp3 files anymore but in a collection but this is nuts. I choose soundtrack as a genre intentionally and nothing else.

I really do like Apples iTunes but thats way over the top. Why not randomly rename the songs instead? And please nobody tell me i have a problem with id3tags. I tagged every single file with id3tag v2.3 after encoding them with lame, the tags are correct. Bah, i think i’m gonna puke.
