Best Record Player Quotes

  6. “I’m from a singing family, but they’re not professional singers, only gospel – my grandfather was a minister. I started to sing the music that was out then because my mother used to play it all the time. It was the end of the ’50s, the beginning of the ’60s. There was Frankie Lyman and the Teenagers, Etta James… We used to sit outside on the stoop and sing. We even used to put our radios and record players outside.” ~ Diana Ross

There is something familiar about my old vinyl. Call it nostalgia, but I don’t care for the ‘purity’ of CDs. They have no personality! The crackle and pop of the stylus on a record player as you wait for the music to begin creates an anticipation that CDs simply can’t provide.” ~ Anthony Pilla
  10. “We dance for the pure joy of it. In the kitchen to the record player. Because we’ve got it in us. All over … it’s not just in the legs. It comes from inside and runs all through you. In waves. From down below to up above. All the way to the scalp.” ~ Gunter Grass
  11. “We were poor [with my mother], and we didn’t have too much. So we sat on the floor and we had a record player, and that’s all we had in that room in the apartment. But we had whatever we had. Six records and a record player and it seemed like magic. Seven or eight years old, you know.” ~ Jon Gordon
  12. “All the way from the first thing that I can remember, like our Victrola – a wind-up record player – and my grandfather’s crystal radio, and my father’s shortwave radio.” ~ Pauline Oliveros

  13. “Traditionally, when we lived here [in Portland], we have a record player in the living room, and there’s lots of stuff playing, all different kinds of music. I don’t listen to any of those Internet radio things. I have iTunes on my thing, but I’ve never bought a single thing on it. Except for “Call Me Maybe,” for the kids or whatever. Carly Rae Jepsen.” ~ Stephen Malkmus
  14. “I listened to my first comedy album in 6th grade. It was Bill Cosby. My brother and I would play it over and over on a Fisher Price record player.

If I knew something personal about you, it would be used against you.” ~ Felipe Esparza
  15. “That’s a terrifying prospect for myself, and I’m sure many other people, as well. We leave TVs on in our house. I listen to my record player, constantly, to just hear music. I’m really intrigued by the idea of solitude. I’m excited about that.” ~ Katee Sackhoff

  17. “Early on, before rock ‘n’ roll, I listened to big band music – anything that came over the radio – and music played by bands in hotels that our parents could dance to. We had a big radio that looked like a jukebox, with a record player on the top. The radio/record player played 78rpm records. When we moved to that house, there was a record on there, with a red label. It was Bill Monroe, or maybe it was the Stanley Brothers. I’d never heard anything like that before. Ever. And it moved me away from all the conventional music that I was hearing.” ~ Bob Dylan
  18. “I don’t listen to music throughout the day very often. I don’t own a record player. I don’t really have a stereo system. Most of the music I listen to these days is on the web or on MySpace pages, stuff like that.” ~ Panda Bear
  19. “I used to play my records aloud until one night my mother was like, “This is too loud. I’m not having it,” and so I put on headphones. But the headphones didn’t stretch all the way to my bed from the record player, so I had to sleep on the floor in order to hear the records. I slept on the floor right next to the record player until I was probably 19 years old.” ~ Lauryn Hill
  20. “The kerosene record player is not a very efficient device.” ~ Frank Zappa

I loved listening to his records: The Dorsey Brothers, Duke Ellington, all the big American jazz bands, and vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, and Kitty White, a singer from the US who was a friend of Nina Simone. Nobody in America seems to know about her, but she was quite popular in South Africa.” ~ Miriam Makeba

  23. “Consider the trivial but revealing hallmarks of urban hipsterdom: faux-vintage photography, the handlebar mustache, and vinyl record players all hark back to an earlier time when people were still optimistic about the future. If everything worth doing has already been done, you may as well feign an allergy to achievement and become a barista.” ~ Peter Thiel
  24. “When I got into the Beatles, I must have only been about six or seven but old enough to take notice. We used to have an old radiogram which, for readers of a certain age, was like a big cabinet thing with a record player inside it.” ~ Paul Weller
