Gawd…  I just finished saying goodnight to my kids and sat down and turned on the TV and what was on…?

I'm just curious if the target audience (14-25 and generally stupid people) are even aware of that autotune sound?  The nonstop artificial pitch correction is like nails on a chalkboard to me.

I am as well, as I am producing an episode with the Glee music and would seriously reconsider if I could, but I already promised I'd do it and a local kindergarten teacher and Fab Files fan is excited about the episode, so I kinda have to do it. Still… after listening to that stuff, Yoko's music is almost like mother's milk compared to the Glee album.

I guess the best fallout from this is that maybe we'll see a bump of new fans.  Maybe when kids download this album (do teenagers still buy CDs…?  I doubt it…) a good number of their parents and relatives will harangue them enough to sample the real deal and by the time they become moody young adults the appreciation will have taken hold.

We should a guide for parents that gives the the best "how to" tips on getting their teens and pre-teens to listen to the real deal. Tip #1. Play the music quietly at breakfast time, just where it is barely audible so it soaks into their subconscious. As the guide grows we can have spotlight section with interview with parents who have been successful in getting their kids into the Beatles.

That's sort of the approach I'm taking here; maybe once they hear the sanitized (and auto-tuned) version, the kiddies will be curious enough to seek out the real thing. Like they say in the nicotine business: hook em young, hook em good.

It depends if the parents like that music. While there are younger Beatle fans, most parents who are raising these teens might have not grown up on The Beatles. However, I do have some indication that a lot Gleeks like The Beatles. Last night on Glee's facebook they asked what is your favorite song off the White Album? Here are the results: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151897180707044&set=a.161933097043.117976.55482772043&type=1&theater

Also remember reading on Glee's and Glee The Music's facebook page comment sections that people mad at Glee covering The Beatles, both songs and pictures. You might not find them quite away, but they are in there.

A lot of them like autotune and a lot of them are attach to the character/storyline where the song comes from in the show.

Is the target audience really 14-25 y/0s? That surprises me.

Isn't it strange that CD's are now the ''old'' way to listen to music? What does that make people who listen to vinyl now? :) Most people my age I've spoken to about this don't even know what a vinyl record is.

Surely the best way would be playing it while you're pregnant and have their easy listening songs as nursery music

Record collecting is coming back in style somewhat. Artists are putting music out on vinyl more now, than they did in a in the past few years. I remember when you couldn't even find a record player stores, but now I can go to Target and buy one (which is where I bought mine). 

This might sound strange, but I rather have vinyl and my mp3 over a cd. I can have the physical version of the album with vinyl and it will sound better than a cd. If I am traveling on the road, it is much easier to carry my phone with, which I am already carrying, then it is to carry a bunch of cds and the get distracted every time I need to switch to the next album.

^ Yeah, I have heard record-buying is on the rise. Don't know if that's good or not for me. Don't want the prices to go up too much on old vinyl if a lot of people are getting interested. Unless they wouldn't really look at that, just the artists they would usually buy in another format.

I'm the same as you, Sky. I have my IPod for listening to when I exercise, in bed, in class… and vinyl for when I want to sit down with it. Don't actually go in the car anywhere much so I don't have the problem of what to listen to there. I think I might own 3-5 CDs in total.

Own a couple of records, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Abba (shudders) and Revolver. I have a bigger CD collection though about 30ish CDs, not that mad on MP3, nice for portability but I prefer a hard copy.

Don't have an iPod though, only an mp3 player and a phone with about 800 songs between then

Vinyl prices..it depends on the shop, the band, and the condition.

There is always Amazon, which I have never bought one there. Just expect to pay a little more money than you would for the cd version or least thats how it is over here in the US.

There's a few vinyl shops near me (my favourite one has been ran by the same guy since the 60s), and he has some really good prices. Condition varies between ok and good. The most wear-and-tear seems to be in the covers, rather than with the record itself. For an old record in very good condition, you obviously have to pay for it. I think Amazon can be quite expensive, though. Prices between vinyl and cd can be quite steep in some places. I'd rather see if I could find the new record in a local shop, though that's not always easy.

Yeah I mainly stick to my local record shop, which is the only record shop around here until New Orleans or maybe Mobile (haven't checked Mobile). There are places like Wal mart Target that sell cds, but over the years they have become limited. Plus, depending upon what band you are getting, you are more likely to find the radio edited versions there. Anyways..my local record shop sells mostly used vinyl (and cds), but they are in really good condition. I don't think I have walked away from there with a really crappy vinyl. I like buying used ones anyways because I feel they have more history to them.

Yeah, me too. I do have a really good original copy of 'With The Beatles', which is good because the sound is good, but I get the feeling someone bought it and it just sat in a box in the loft or something. I like to think that my records belonged to someone experiencing and enjoying it at the time, even if that means something has been cut out or their name is on it, or whatever…

For all UK/Ireland biblers, the Glee episode is on tonight at 8pm on Sky 1, most likely to be repeated during the week on Sky 2

Watch…if you dare!

Its a very bland episode. They had to pull a Carrie (bucket of blood falling on someone) to make it somewhat entertaining.a-hard-days-night-paul-4
