Top Five On Friday - 9/28/07

Today's Top Five topic was created by me!

Top 5 CDs That You Bought Used

1) Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. It's a classic, it's a must-own album, and I bought it on the cheap!

2) Green Linnet Records: 25 Years of Celtic Music. This compilation seemed just the thing to buy. It's full of good songs and good artists. Also, it's a two-disc set, and it was selling for the price of a regular used CD (they're usually around $7.95)! That's a deal I couldn't pass up.

3) Adore and Pisces Iscariot by Smashing Pumpkins. I bought both of these at a big used sale at CD World. The margin of victory by the UO football team was the percent taken off the regular used price. The victory margin was 45, so I bought these CDs for nearly half the original used price!

Interestingly, most of the Smashing Pumpkins CDs I own have been used. Only Siamese Dream, Mellon Collie and Zeitgeist were bought new.

4) Santiago by The Chieftains. I had been wanting to purchase this CD for ages, so I was excited when I saw it used for a little over $5. I didn't even buy it the first time I saw it for that price, but when I went back again a week later, it was still there. I snatched it up quick, not making the same mistake again.

5) 1 by The Beatles. Three of my Beatles albums have been used, and this is one of them. I didn't buy it in a store; rather, I bought it from my friend Jessica when she wanted to give away all her CDs. That counts as used, and this used disc is one of my favorites.

The thought of giving away any of my CDs makes me quake in fear!
