Posted something similar a year or o ago, but it has happened again.

I have a MP3 player with approximately 850 tracks on it.

the tracks are organised into Playlists - actually the albums they came off - but I leave the player on Shuffle Play, then I don't know what will come next, and it freshens up the music to hear it alongside different tracks rather than the "normal" place.

Anyway - I have 2 versions of American Woman on it - the Guess Who original and the Lenny Kravitz cover.

So what are the odds of them being played one after the other, as they just were?

Your spelling is as bad as Bels' - "hat" has only 3 letters.

Maybe you need to get out a little more? ;)
