I’ve been collecting vinyl for over a year now, and as my collection has recently surpassed 50 records, I thought I’d take some pictures to show you all on my blog! It took quite a while to lay them all out on my bed (and even longer to put them away), but it was totally worth it because the pictures look cool.
You can generally see most of my collection in the pictures, but generally I have a lot of Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Nirvana, Billy Idol and Dire Straits, as well as some more modern records like Halsey, Lorde, Green Day and Melanie Martinez. I’m trying to get my favourite albums from each artist/band I like (I’ve managed to get every Nirvana album though because I’m a total Kurt Cobain fangirl), examples being Goo by Sonic Youth, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac, AM by the Arctic Monkeys and Sigh No More by Mumford & Sons. I also have a couple of jazz and classical music records, which are amazing to listen to while studying. The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack is pretty cool, but I totally need to get the Star Wars one! (and Suicide Squad if they release that on vinyl – there’s some great songs in that movie).
If you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel, you’d know that I post videos showing my vinyl, but in case you haven’t seen them yet, I’ve embedded a couple below. First up is a video I uploaded today, showing the coloured / picture disc records I have, which are my favourite to collect! Below you can also watch my most recent vinyl haul, from a few weeks ago, and finally the video that started all of this off: my vinyl record collection. I uploaded that video a few months ago, so my collection has gotten a fair amount bigger since then, but it remains my most popular YouTube video, and features the majority of my records.
I still have so many records on my vinyl wishlist (I don’t have any Rolling Stones yet!!), but I’m trying to save money so I won’t be buying any soon!
