Thank You for the Music...Now Get Out of Here!

Compact discs, the grandchild of the vinyl long-play platter, is holding its own against the iPods and other inventions that enable us to hear our music without utilizing a separate contraption. We’ve gone from room size stereo systems that were once the neighbor's envy in the Mad Men era, to tiny players with the accompanying ear buds. Honestly, I thought CDs would be long gone by now.

So, to hasten its demise and drive the last nails into its coffin, here are my suggestions for albums which should do the trick:

1. The Puppini Sisters Sing Abba’s Greatest Hits

2. Derbies and Mallets: The Return of the Nairobi Trio*

3. Newt Gingrich’s Greatest Press Releases, as performed by John Lithgow

4. Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, as read by Percy Dovetonsils**

5. Live from The Improv: Michele Bachmann Teaches America’s Greatest History Lessons

6. Crying Time Again: Greatest Songs of Tears as performed by John Boehner and the House Republican Caucus

7. Faithful: A Collection of Devotional Songs for Long Term Relationships by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Anthony Weiner

8. The Wiggles Sing Mack The Knife and Other Selections by Brecht and Weill

9. Glenn Beck Reads Selections from “Mein Kampf”
