I was just wondering whether there is a specific formula (perhaps strategy is a better word) for determining what order songs are placed in when a new CD is put together. Often, it seems like the big, hit single goes at the beginning, but not always.
I have noticed that, on many of my CDs, my favorite song is track number 3. This does not always means that it was the biggest hit, just that it is my favorite. Hell, some of my favorite albums produced no “hits” at all.
Anyway, people’s input/experiences on this issue would be welcome.
