Compilation CDs

I came across one of those infomercials that sells a stack of CDs containing hits from certain eras. This one was selling "Golden Love Songs" and hits from the 50's and 60's. The price for the six CDs was outrageous. And it's obvious they could send all of the music on a 1GB flash drive, but I suppose people who buy CDs late at night off the TV probably aren't that technologically inclined. Once in college we watched one of these infomercials for more than an hour while I frantically wrote down every song on old mail, backs of notebooks and any scrap of loose paper I could find. Our intention was to find these songs online and listen to them without buying any of the CDs. By the time I completed the list we were to inertial on the couch to actually do anything, and then the next day no one could decipher any of my writing anyway.
