I love that you have a walkman. I saw OMD in concert in 1988.

Aw yeah. I love me some OMD. _Crush_ got some heavy play back in the day (and I still hit it every so often these days, too.)

I like their poppier stuff (Enola Gay, Electricity, all of _Crush_ and _Junk Culture_) but I think I've listened to _Dazzle Ships_ more than anything else they've recorded besides _Crush_.

If you like their early Factory Records stuff (the S/T album in particular), you might also dig _Architecture and Morality_.

Here you go, Bloc Bloc Bloc, from _Crush_:



Seriously, just keep going. I think I gave all my cassettes to Goodwill a couple of years ago or I could just mail you most of their discography on tape...

Add Tesla Girls and you have pretty much exhausted my knowledge of OMD songs... too poppy for me. Enola Gay is an earworm for sure, I can't get it out of my head for days whenever I hear it.

I plan on getting an older Walkman preferably a Sony TPS-L2, Primarily because it's becoming more popular by the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy

I secretly listen to my Walkman frequently while riding public transit but sometimes I take it out, and I do get some weird looks.
and not to mention I do listen to modern songs recorded onto another cassette just for kicks like Daft Punk-Around the World, Some Requiem for a Dream ost just to ruin my life since watching that depressing movie ^_^
Kavinsky-Nightcall, Chromatics-Cherry - these songs are primarily on here because I absolutely love the movie "Drive"

Check out _Dazzle Ships_, then. A couple of hit singles, but not all popsongs.

The WM-B39 was my weapon of choice.

When I gave away my cassettes, I did keep decades of mixtapes...

I like them ok, it's just too bad they wrote that one super homophobic song. But I guess it was a different time.

Oh yeah, for sure. I mean, you couldn't even get gay married yet, so how could you annul one?

One of my old work colleagues used to be part of OMD (backing singer/ stylist/ choreographer). Oddly enough I've never heard a single on of their songs. Time for a trip to YouTube

About two years ago I walked into a Salvation Army thrift shop to find the entire OMD catalog on vinyl. I paid 4.25 a record. I had Crush on cassette in Junior High School and figured why not. To be honest, I haven't given the records a listen yet.

Pfft. They SPELL it that way, but we all know it's a straight-up call for gay sex. I mean, really-- "Anal A Gay!" What ELSE could it be?

Wow, this is perhaps the stupidest thing I've ever read on here and that's saying a lot.

I was at Best Buy recently trying to find a shower radio clock (harder to find then you think, Best Buy didn't have it). They had a Walkman though. And it was way more expensive then you'd think it should be.

I also saw floppy discs at the drug store in clearance. Anyone need me to pick some up?

WHAT? Crazy. Do they even sell cassettes? Or do they just figure everyone will just go to GoodWill or raid their parents' closets or whatever?

And, heh, if you found non-HD floppy disks (that is, 720k 3.5" disks) I actually do have a home for those... I scrounged up a Yamaha SY-85 on freecycle last summer, and it only uses standard-density disks. (The magnetic technology changed a bit between SD and HD-- you can format one as the other, but it won't be very reliable.)

It was a few weeks ago now, so who knows, maybe they sold them by now. *snickers*
