    10 Apparently Wide-Held Beliefs Or Comments In Regards To Music Enjoyment That Always Baffle Me (Not That Anyone Ever Claimed My Tastes Or Beliefs Are Anything To Write Home About): :)

    1. I pay attention to the music exclusively and not the cover. Or nothing else, period.
    2. The (vintage) Billboard charts were very narrow in scope.
    3. Led Zeppelin stole most/much of their material.
    4. CD's are intrinsically better than vinyl.
    5. Vinyl is intrinsically better than CD.
    6. Only the golden years made "great music".
    7. This is the golden age of music, why dwell on "older music".
    8. Artists should ignore money, fame, their desires, or the masses desires and instead do what I want them to do. :)
    9. I don't like to physically collect the music (or items) of my favorite artists. (Although I can respect the statement. Especially if space issues are the reason).
    10. We need fewer deluxe CD's, deluxe boxes, fewer releases that celebrate albums, etc.

    10 Perfectly Legitimate Reasons Someone Might Have More Than One Copy Of An Album:

    2. You collect label variations of the album.
    3. The album came in alternate covers.
    4. You collect the album in every physical format possible.
    5. You may collect sealed copies to "invest" in or sell down the road.
    6. You were given a multiple as a gift from someone who wasn't aware you had a copy.
    7. A new "expanded version" was made and so you re-purchase the album with the additional material.
    8. You have a scratched or warped copy and want to add a better one to the collection.
    9. You have one copy framed or used in some fashion as a "collectible" and want a playing copy.

    A Happy 50th To Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Edition...

    10 Signs That You May Be Attached To This Album Beyond All Reason...

    1. You still have a scrapbook from its "20 Years Ago Today" anniversary in 1987 and now we've hit 50!
    2. You have a "Sgt Pepper" drum on your fireplace mantle.
    3. You almost had a "cloud nine" moment hearing the new 2017 remix (raising my own hand) :)
    4. You named your daughters Lucy and Rita.
    5. You haven't yet realized that the "summer of love" has come and gone.
    6. You still wear flowers in your hair, even if you don't have hair!
    7. You have sent in a petition to have "Within You, Without You" put on the ballot for the state song.
    8. You passed up seeing the Mona Lisa because you were working on an essay detailing Pepper's album cover art.
    9. Your doorbell plays the final chord of "A Day In The Life".
    10. You know the take number used for the master of every song on the album but don't know the birthdays of your family members!

    In all seriousness, happy 50th to the most celebrated pop album of the last century!
