Stuck in my head – Faker

I have a CD collection. I was given my first CD when I was 12 (Tina Arena – Chains) and since then I’ve accumulated many more.

There are all sorts of CDs in there. Some I play more than others. Some are only there because I hate throwing things away, particularly if I paid good money for them at one point (even more so if I was young and $30 meant a lot more back when I was at school).

I still buy CDs mostly because I really like the album format. I’ll buy a cd, sit down with the album artwork, listen to the music and hear it start to finish.
Plus I like my money were I can see it- on my walls and in my stash.

(It’s metallic silver paint and Ikea CD/DVD racks. One of my favourite things in my apartment)


My Bloke’s CD collection is also quite impressive. Although we haven’t merged the two, we have decided that we’re committed enough to not both buy the same CD. It has been 5 years.

I organise mine alphabetically by artist name then album name (ignoring any ‘the’ prefixes).
My Bloke organises his alphabetically by artist and then in order of album release date earliest to latest.
This argument is expected to last until we’re in retirement.

So my song for this week is my go-to song for whenever I’m tired and at work. After 4 days in bed watching 30 Rock, I am out of my pajamas and a sleepwalking member of society once again.

  1. Nice collection! I’m gonna have to agree with your man about the organisation method, sorry. Mine are alphabetical by artist then chronological by release date too.

    1. Where do re-releases fit? In the original release year or the year the cd was printed?
      What about best ofs?
      There can be no disputes with the alphabet.

      1. Fair point. I have my own weird little rules and exceptions to combat this though.
        Best Ofs go straight to the end of chronology regardless of release date, and compilations go to the end of the whole collection. Honestly I don’t have many Best Ofs or compilations so it doesn’t matter too much for me.

      2. See I put compilations in by their title. Eg Triple J hottest 100 goes in the T section.
        I don’t have many best ofs either. If I like a band or want to get into a band I’ll buy a highest rated album before a best of.
        I am a little anal about my filing systems. More so than he is. He jokes that one day he’ll move one CD out of place and not tell me just to see if I’ll notice. The look of horror on my face is the whole point of the suggestion apparently.

      3. Haha yeah I can see the appeal in torturing someone like that – but I can also imagine I wouldn’t react well being on the recieving end either.

Thanks for stopping by!
