Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

  13. Celebration
  14. Y.M.C.A.
  15. Another One Bites the Dust
  16. Rock This Town
  17. Hot Hot Hot
  18. Mickey

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None, but I'm reminded of how these party mix CDs were a necessity in 1999 because of the current technology. Now, streaming playlists have rendered them obsolete, but that doesn't mean much around these parts - we still gonna spin these discs.
