Tuesday Throwback: Remember When Compilation CDs Advertised On TV?

When was the last time you bought a CD? Chances are that it’s been a while. For me, it was shortly before I left for college in August 2004. But there was a time when direct-response compilation CDs advertised all over the airwaves. I haven’t seen one of these in about 10 years, though my viewing habits have also changed. For this post, I’ve chosen a few that I remember the best. We’ve got the new-agey Pure Moods, the hyper-current Top 40 NOW series (they still make these and they’re up to NOW 74 in the US), and the poppy alt-rock Buzz.

Tuesday Throwback: Those Buzz Albums

Remember CDs? I last bought one in 2004. I wonder if these commercials for the Buzz Series are still played on late night TV. The funny thing is that I still love a lot of these alt-rockish songs from the late ’90s and early 2000s (I totally listened to Lit’s “My Own Worst Enemy” today). Some technically aren’t great, but nostalgia is an amazing thing.
