2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Good Morning, Starshine
May 19, 2011
I'll let you in on a little secret. Only two people in my life know this so far. The reason I listen to the "On Broadway" satellite channel so often if that I'm collecting songs for a future cabaret act.
I'm not really all that knowledgeable about Broadway musicals, especially the modern ones. So whenever I hear something I like, I snap a picture with my phone's camera so that I can look it up later. Then I download it and search for lyrics and sheet music. Along with a friend of mine from my acting school days, I'm planning a musical act that will hopefully take place next year in New York City. One night only unless we get boffo reviews. Then who knows?
All of our fleet cars have different ways of displaying information about what song is playing. I like the Mitsubishi setup best. It provides the most information. Not just the song name but also the show, year of the show (so I know if it's the original or a revival), and the artist who is singing. This isn't necessary for every channel, of course, which is probably why most systems don't go this far. If you're listening to the Indie rock station, you really only need to know the band name and song title. Some systems don't even give you that much.
It mixes up the categories somewhat. "Artist" gives you the show title, "Composer" shows the singer, but you get the gist of it. It's more than any of our other cars offer. For research purposes, the Mitsubishi wins for me. It makes it very easy to find the song again later on iTunes or Sh-K-Boom or wherever.
