iTunes can list 45 songs on my 7.5 inch tall laptop display. To view my entire iTunes library as a single page at that same resolution, my display would need to be 124 yards tall!

What's a yard?
A patch of ground at the back of your house?

I realize yard is not a universal measuere of length, but I picked it in honor of footbal (American football) starting up. A football field is an easy visualization for me.

I googled the information superhighway and have determined that an American football field is 120.0 yards long which is 109.7 metres.

1/4 Empire State Buildings
1.3 Boeing 747s

When people talk about things in terms of "the length of a football field" they general mean the 100 yards (91.44 m) between the end zones. By comparision a real football pitch is similar in size, 110 yards or 100 meters or so, but of course there is no standard size, just a range.

As everyone knows 1 yard = 216 songs.
Of course if I were to get my semi-annual call to DJ, I'd only have about 12 yards available that I know well enough and have BPM'ed
Not that I don't know my collection - I mean the rest is mostly jazz not suitable for dancing.
