I'm listening to myself cheerfully singing at the moment. I've finished working for this year. I've just started my holiday and will be back at work on 9th Jan 2012

The Mission- Serpent's Kiss-

I didnt even know there was a video for that song. Wayne Hussey (the singer) looks like someone took 'Culture Club' era Boy George and dyed his clothes black. LMAO.

Well, technically, it's a function in my .bashrc

Code:
playcd () 
{ 
    local album_dir;
    album_dir="$( find /local/music/ -type d -path "/local/music/*/*" -maxdepth 2 | shuf -n 1 )";
    find "$album_dir" -type f \( -name "*.flac" -o -name "*.ogg" \) -print | sort | ogg123 -d alsa -o dev:stmix -@ -
}
Works with a /local/music/$artist/$album/$trackno - $trackname.flac layout.


P.S. With newer versions of ogg123 it can be simplified to
ls -d /local/music/*/* | shuf -n 1 | ogg123 -@ -

The reason for all the sorts and finds was because the previous versions of ogg123 used to play tracks out of order when specifying a directory to play and I never got around to reworking my function. With vorbistools 1.4 onwards the short version works just as well.
