I’m not sure about you, but I spend an unreasonable amount of time trying to take a picture on my phone, finding out that my storage is full, and quickly deleting whatever I can out of frustration. Because of this I’ve never been big on putting music on my phone, which means that I’m generally at the mercy of listening to whatever is playing on my car radio.
A few weeks ago I had the genius (and completely unoriginal) idea of stopping at a thrift store to check out what CDs were available. I was really excited to find a Beyonce and (lol) All American Rejects. After listening to Love on Top and Countdown on the Beyonce CD 30 times in a one-week period, I decided to stop at another thrift store to see what else was available.
It’s only been a few weeks but I have already found some great music. I was particularly psyched to find the Toploader album as they sing the most beautiful version of Dancing in the Moonlight, and it reminds me of Corinne over at http://skinnedcartree.com whenever I hear it. I’m also in love with the Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Beatles album, as A Day in the Life is the sound of my soul.
While I realize it’s a bit of a risk to purchase a used CD with no option for return, the cost is so little ($1 or $2) that it shouldn’t worry you too much. I have purchased 7 CDs now and only one track has skipped – and it was easily fixed with a quick t-shirt wipe down. Annnd now I can enjoy some of my favorite songs while driving when there is absolutely nothing else available.
What CDs would you have your eye out for at the thrift shop?
