CD Player (an original rap about my CD collection)

This song dates back 15 years or more. My friend Geoff challenged me to write a rap about something in my apartment. This song was the result. I recorded a quick rendition but never did the full version until today. I dedicate this song to everyone who had (or has) a CD collection.

Intro - 0:00
Song - 1:06

Some things keep coming Back ! (don't no if the CD does)  i have some ,but mainly Records, Yea the DIGITale revolution Slayered a hole bunch Film,Polaroid,video,CD, you name it inmense community's are striped from there Hobby's Livestyle  as innovation moves on ! (not allways for the best) there are people who dont take it for granted and rebel against the Digital revolution ,and go back to analog, i my self believe in both worlds some needs to be done Analog  and others better Digital, but your Rap made me do it ! whe are all victoms of Cultural History and the urge of INVENTORS and the InDustrial  Capatalists!   Early Rap Bing Crosby, Shirley temple !

Thanks John. I never really thought about the ties to that old talking country but yeah... great point.

Ha, a wrap with an old country talking feeling. 

I liked it.  CW McCall and Kale Poorness.
