Album. What's up with Enty and his one-word response prompts? Stop restricting my freedom of speech, yo!

Bacon Ranch said...

or youtube.

Seven of Eleven said...

@Wigs, her theme song.

fancyscreenname said...

I use all of them

Uhhhh... said...

CD... and I like having the actual product because I like to look through the wordie book. Downloading and burning is too much work. Sometimes I am cheap and I just burn it from the library.

Zoe Cialite said...

CD; much easier to type.

Record. If it's a single it's a 45. HA

Steampunk Jazz said...

Dear God Seven! I had my volume on LOUD. that was Jangly.. :D

Gayeld said...

Soundtrack.

Used in a sentence:

I bought the Frozen soundtrack.

The kids are listening to the Frozen soundtrack.

The kids won't stop listening to the Frozen soundtrack.

I can recite the words to Frozen Heart from the Frozen soundtrack in my sleep.

Soundtrack.

IceQueen said...

"Music". It eliminates all the MP3 vs iTunes vs CDs&Tapes confusion.

Steampunk Jazz said...

I Still say record even though I seldom listened to them, I was an eight track baby :D
All other music is tape, on tape, whether it is from the computer or on the radio, CD or Mp3 ( that's what I call the work evaluations, which it's not, either..)
:D

Steampunk Jazz said...

Anybody else still say: "on the flip side..?"

Bacon Ranch said...

I'm sorry Gayeld but I'm laughing over here.
Soundtrack

(maybe it can meet an accidental ending? Or go off to stay at the farm where soundtracks live? I hear they get to run free)

witwritergirl said...

Showing my age....I say record.

Bacon Ranch said...

That's karma for ya, soundtrack haunts you and that stupid post decided to multiply :(

Gayeld said...

LOL! Too late for that. I foolish taught them how to rip the disc and make copies.

As in:

There are copies of the Frozen soundtrack disc playing in every room of my house.



And the car.

Gayeld said...

;-) As long as it doesn't want to build a snowman.

Sherry said...

Funny when a mom said to a little girl," You sound like a broken record." And she said," what's a record".

NaughtyNurse said...

Album, if I'm talking about somebody having a new "album dropping." CD only if I am talking about the actual disc, as in, "honey, I got a CD stuck in the changer!" Record only if I'm talking about vinyl.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

I use "Record" to refer to old-fashioned Vinyl -- the sound of which is in no way "superior" to digital sound like CDs. It's just that some people like hiss and pops and mushiness and errors.

I use "CD" to refer to Compact Discs.

An "Album" is the collection of songs released together by an artist.

Kelly said...

Album. I think it's pretentious when people use the term "record" unless they're referring to the actual black circular grooved object.

Snapdragon said...

I usually say "album" but once in a while "record" slips out, in a non-pretentious way, I swear. ;-)

Countess Eden said...

Song or playlist. I still say I'm taping a show though....

Eros said...

Uhh what is a record and why isnt mp3 a selection

MadLyb said...

I say, "vinyl" and turn my nose up at digital music because I'm a pretentious twat.

MadLyb said...

@JAS - I honestly think vinyl sounds superior to digital music. It's probably all in my mind, or that the "pops" and "crackles" make the sounds seem richer.

AKM said...

"Album." And I still buy CDs so that I can listen to 'em in my car. Hell, the car that I'm trying to sell has a cassette player, so I just dug out all the old Fleetwood Mac and Springsteen stuff on cassette. But overall it's "album" for me, yes.

hairydawg said...

"record" is simply short for recording and refers to individual tracks. Those MP3's you download are records.

Vinyl has superior sound quality to digital music because it was recorded on analog equipment. Same reason musicians prefer tube amps over transistor amps.

Alita said...

What hairydawg said. Plus an insert on CDs and other digital formats being 'lossy,' losing more of the top and bottom end. Records may be a pain compared to digital, but they technically and actually sound better. Depends what's important to you, whether you want to bother with them or not.

Alita said...

Except for the first paragraph, @hairy - language evolves, and records are big black circles with grooves on them. Well that's what I think!

shopgirl said...

I call my albums "records" and sometimes I play them on my record player. (yes, they sound scratchy and all but I'm too cheap to think of paying to replace all my David Bowie, Steely Dan and Elton John records. And don't get me started on my America album collection). I call my cds "cds" and play them on my cd player. (which is also my record player)

Steampunk Jazz said...

LOL Gayeld, I was reading from the bottom up on your post and I thought you were tossing us some Beatz on the the Eternal of Music while the tech and technique changes. (the frozen aspect for eternal sound) etc and then I realized...
while the beat is ok, you can't dance to it.
and thats not what you were saying at all... :D

Steampunk Jazz said...

How is record being used to Snoot?
Record is pulling them out of their paper sleeve, being careful not to wear the seams so they won't tear...
Record is trying to make the fat ring stay up without turning off the stereo because you want to hear the One song that made you buy the album but turned out to be the only good one on it...
Album though, is pretentious...:D

album

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

i use all of them, but not all the same way.

The one I can't stand is "vinyl." Example: "Yeah, I have the Weezer discography on vinyl."

BeckyMae said...

I prefer LP myself....

Dingle Barry said...

8-track tapes and one sided Victrola records. I'm kinda old kids.
