I’ve seen a few posts where people list the music they’ve bought and give a little commentary on it. I find these posts pretty interesting so I thought I’d try my hand at one. Plus I was curious as to how much money I spend on music. I was hoping to make it a year before I posted this, but after six months the list it already pretty long. So here we go!
21 Nov 2014 (Amazon.com)
The Beatles – The White Album $11.31
Soundtrack – Heavy Metal 2000 $4.61
Soundtrack – The Cable Guy $4
Somewhere along the way I lost my copies of the White Album and the Heavy Metal 2000 soundtrack and it was time I replaced them. I thought I’d pick up the Cable Guy while I was at it.
It seems weird that I went 31 years without owning any Rolling Stones music. And it seems even worse that it took a BUY 2 GET 1 FREE ON USED CDs sale to get me to buy it. I still might not have any Rolling Stones music if it weren’t for the fact that FYE doesn’t have much of a selection (unless you really love Linkin Park). The copy of Pretty Hate Machine is a remastered version with the cover of Queen’s “Get Down Make Love” added. This is the second or third time I’ve bought that Ray Charles disc. My mom keeps stealing it.
I know I’ve said of Wednesday 13 that one of the things I love about his music is that I can sing along without ever having heard it before, but I’ve been wanting a disc for a while. “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” is one of my favorite Elton John songs but wasn’t in my collection until I got it here. And how could I pass up the Butthole Surfers and Blind Melon discs for those prices?

Filter – Title of Record $1.50
Ray Charles – Live at Montreux (DVD) $3
They were having some kind of deal. I gave the DVD to my mom so hopefully she wont steal the CD again.
Picked this one up the last time I saw Wednesday 13.
21 Feb 2015 (Amazon.com MP3)
Killler Be Killed $7.99
Kittie- I’ve Failed You $6.99
The Very Best of Kiss $5.99
The Last Internationale – We Will Reign $7.99
Kiss is another band I didn’t have anything by. I usually try to buy 3 or so albums at a time from Amazon.
This was a BUY 1 GET 1 HALF OFF Sale. I actually sold the Spook & Destroy disc after buying Transylvania 90210. I needed a replacement Dirt because mine was scratched to hell. I gave it to the Goodwill for someone else to enjoy, but they’ll only be able to enjoy about half of it. I had Sweet Oblivion on my Amazon wishlist, but I really made out here because I managed to get it much cheaper.
I love the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but that may just be because I find frontal male nudity hilarious.
13 May 2015 (FYE)
Faith No More 3 Disc Set (Epic & Other Hits, The Real Thing and Angel Dust) $7.49
Alice in Chains – Unplugged (CD+DVD) $23.99
I actually passed up this FNM collection a week earlier, but then I heard Sol Invictus online and decided it was definitely worth the money. I’ve had my eye on this Unplugged CD + DVD and I finally gave up on the price going down.
I ripped my copy of Madman from my mom’s old scratched to hell CD and the disc was so messed up that I could still hear skips listening to it in MP3 form. I’ve never had this happen before. So I got a replacement because I hate buying just one album from Amazon and I had to get Sol Invictus.
So those are my new additions. How do you think I made out?
