Here at Concert Hotels HQ we've been reminiscing about the good old days when our music collections were tangible. We remember spending many happy hours flipping through 12 inch vinyl stacks at our local record store.
Not that we're anti-progress you understand, but since we shifted over to digital music - iTunes, Spotify et al our days of rummaging through flea markets for hidden gems are long since passed, and we rarely buy music in a format that you have to lug around.
Our lugging days are no more - an iPod Classic weighs just a third of a pound and holds up to 40,000 songs.
That's a LOT of vinyl.
In fact it's 3,180 albums.
3,180 is kind of a big number, so just for fun we decided to visualize what an iPod's worth of albums looks like - click the image below to launch.
It's a long old scroll down that page, so rather than making you do the work we've elected to save your scrolling finger (and your sanity), just click the arrow to scroll automatically to the bottom of the stack.
Please note - if you're something of a delicate little flower, be warned, the crazy long scroll on this graphic might make you feel a little dizzy. If you feel funny put your head between your knees and take deep breaths; or maybe consult a physician. We aren't doctors and this does not constitute medical advice.
Everyone else - enjoy!
