I have so, so many on iTunes.
Sometimes, I wonder why.
It’s actually a lot easier today in a lot of ways to just use Spotify or something on your mobile devices.
It’s probably why a lot of young people aren’t buying CDs at all.
Which makes me sad in some ways.
I grew up in the 80s during a time when young people, especially young men bought a ton of stuff. CDs, books, LPs, stuff.
I feel like in the digital age of Kindle and Spotify, it’s probably a lot easier to move.
All those books and music and comics and … really adds up.
But, although I liked my Samsung CD burner it wasn’t very durable. Died after a couple years. And I’m not burning nearly as many CDs these days.
I got a new one today and burned the American Idiot Broadway soundtrack and a Bruce Springsteen bonus record from Born to Run. Also the last 2 CDs from a Bo Diddley compilation that was the last thing my old CD burner got through before stopping working at all.
Interestingly, the one in my old laptop was very durable.
But, internal CD-Rs aren’t even part of computers anymore in the cloud age.
And, I feel like I could use a little CD player. If nothing else to play along with for the bass and guitar lessons in my Hal Leonard books.
Do you still burn and buy CDs?
