Music Records Quotes By Bruce Springsteen

All the music I loved as a child, people thought it was junk. People were unaware of the subtext in so many of those records, but if you were a kid, you were just completely tuned in, even though you didn't always say - you wouldn't dare say it was beautiful. — Bruce Springsteen

Music Records Quotes By Kevin Shields

Oftentimes, when people cut a record from analog tape to vinyl, they digitize the music first; I did a little investigating and discovered that most vinyl records that I've ever heard were digitized before they were put onto vinyl. — Kevin Shields

Music Records Quotes By Ralph Stanley

Well, I don't let anyone record with me that is not a fan of mine or believe in my music. Everybody that records for me, from Bob Dylan on down to George Jones, everybody loves me and my music, and I knew they would do their best that they could do, and they did. I didn't doubt them a bit. There's some country people that I wouldn't want, which didn't record with me. — Ralph Stanley

Music Records Quotes By David Byrne

I've made money, and I've been ripped off. I've had creative freedom, and I've been pressured to make hits. I have dealt with diva behavior from crazy musicians, and I have seen genius records by wonderful artists get completely ignored. I love music. I always will. — David Byrne

Music Records Quotes By Lenny Breau

My folks were country music performers. They made records and even did a few tours with the Grand Ole Opry. There always were a lot of guitarists around. — Lenny Breau

Music Records Quotes By Ann Wilson

Back when we were first making records, you didn't just make the music, you put a great deal of energy into the way it looked, and every word that was written on the whole thing. — Ann Wilson

Music Records Quotes By Danger Mouse

I have no shame in making music that maybe, if you listen to it long enough, you'll realize you've heard this or that part of it before. I'm still very excited by an amazingly written song, so that's really the thing that I work on when I make records with people. — Danger Mouse

Music Records Quotes By Ice-T

I think what's happenin' is that, with the overflow of music, it's been diluted. There was a time when people would go search out underground records. Now, underground means free, and people don't really care for it. So now artists tend to go more pop and look for the radio. — Ice-T

Music Records Quotes By Dr. Dre

I've looked at pictures that my mom has of me, from when I was four years old at the turntable. I'm there, reaching up to play the records. I feel like I was bred to do what I do. I've been into music, and listening to music and critiquing it, my whole life. — Dr. Dre

Music Records Quotes By Grieves

It takes a lot of money to make music and get it to people. It takes a lot of time to make a record sound good. — Grieves

Music Records Quotes By Tom Bailey

Twelve years ago me and Allanah became really sick of writing pop songs, ... Eventually we dug a grave for the Thompson Twins, pushed them in there, and then moved to New Zealand. Before that I'd lived for a long time in south London where reggae was the music of the streets around me. You'd hear it booming out of people's windows and shops, and you could buy great old reggae singles for 50p (NZ1.30) in second hand shops. I'd always loved that sound, so soon after we got here I started making electronic dub records with my mate Rakai Karaitiana as International Observer. — Tom Bailey

Music Records Quotes By Chris Hillman

It's different now but I enjoy it more than I did then. I think I appreciate it more now and I love playing acoustically. This is the way I started. Herb and I met each other forty years ago when we were both eighteen years old, playing bluegrass, and that's what drew me into music, and I enjoyed every particular part of my career. But now I enjoy it because it's the twilight of my career, where I can play what I want and I can play when I want and where I want. And that's the greatest part it all. So it's sort of a right that I've earned. I can record records the way I want to. — Chris Hillman

Music Records Quotes By Shanice

You don't have to wait for a record company to tell you that you're good or to sign you. You can put your music out on itunes, youtube, soundcloud, so it's kind of a plus, I think. — Shanice

Music Records Quotes By Mike Gordon

As long as we keep learning new music and getting better musically, there's a good chance that the record deal won't change anything. — Mike Gordon

Music Records Quotes By Matthew Sweet

More labels should be like that. Instead of putting these records out myself, I should have just signed with them, but they probably don't like my music (laughs). — Matthew Sweet

Music Records Quotes By Jay Watson

I am a big Brian Eno fan - the first few Brian Eno records are just absolute gibberish and he came up with a lot of lyrics by writing down loads and loads of random sentences and streams, and I find meaning in that music, even though he'd probably say it's absolute gibberish. — Jay Watson

Music Records Quotes By Steve Earle

You make decisions, and that's what separates art from some other pop music. It doesn't mean that you can't make an embarrassing amount of money, for a borderline Marxist, doing something that you love, but it does mean that this huge pool of money that was out there when I started making records in the '80s is gone. — Steve Earle

Music Records Quotes By Lyle Lovett

My music has always been sort of in between categories. Sometimes record stores - back when there were record stores - they'd put my records in the country music section, but other record stores would put my records in the pop or even the rock section. As long as it's in the store somewhere, I'm OK with it. — Lyle Lovett

Music Records Quotes By Allan Kozinn

New Amsterdam Records, a new label run by composers, has begun documenting this hybrid music, with invigorating discs by the band itsnotyouitsme and the composers Corey Dargel and William Brittelle. — Allan Kozinn

Music Records Quotes By Jenny Lewis

I didn't know anything about music when I started a band. I barely knew how to play a guitar. I didn't know how to produce records. I learned how to play bass guitar and keyboards in Rilo Kiley. I picked up a lot from my collaborators. — Jenny Lewis

Music Records Quotes By Bill Maher

Stop saying drug use makes people lazy. Jimi Hendrix did a lot of drugs, even though he's been dead for forty years, he's still making new records. Suck on that, Partnership for a Drug-Free America! — Bill Maher

Music Records Quotes By Diplo

As a DJ, it's my job to break new music. And instead of it just being the stuff that's coming from the major labels or the big pop records, I've always gravitated to something that's just different, you know? — Diplo

Music Records Quotes By Elliott Carter

Well when I was young, when I was very young, when I was a little boy I don't remember the music I heard, but there was an article in the Brooklyn Daily written by my Aunt about how I could choose phonograph records. — Elliott Carter

Music Records Quotes By Amos Lee

I grew up working at a record store and listening to vinyl. Even if it's side A and B, there's always this continuity that really turned me on about music. — Amos Lee

Music Records Quotes By Herb Alpert

Selfishly, I make music for me. I like to make music. I like looking for songs. I like working with interesting musicians. I like producing records. It's something I will always do. — Herb Alpert

Music Records Quotes By Skrillex

Throughout my years in From First to Last, I was always dabbling and making electronic music on my own time. The first records I ever owned were crossover electronic rock, like Prodigy, Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails. — Skrillex

Music Records Quotes By Joaquin Phoenix

My music is going to be true. I'm not out to sell records. I'm experiencing something, and it's what I feel. — Joaquin Phoenix

Music Records Quotes By Aretha Franklin

I remember singing around the house to records that were playing. All kinds of music. And the great James Cleveland was often in our house, and I grew up with his sound as well. — Aretha Franklin

Music Records Quotes By Henry Jackman

There's a whole gamut of things to do with film music that don't apply when you're making a record or if you're writing a concert piece or something. — Henry Jackman

Music Records Quotes By Sylvie Simmons

Everybody was in tears. You turned on the radio or the television, and it was nothing but Gainsbourg. With typical British music journalist disdain, I just figured it was a testament to how poor French pop was if there was this much fuss about a guy who had one hit record, 'Je T'Aime (Moi Non Plus)'. — Sylvie Simmons

Music Records Quotes By Juliana Hatfield

What does it mean to a person whose identity is very wrapped up in the music she makes, if her worth is measured by how many records she sells? — Juliana Hatfield

Music Records Quotes By Haruki Murakami

Reading was like an addiction; I read while I ate, on the train, in bed until late at night, in school, where I'd keep the book hidden so I could read during class. Before long I bought a small stereo and spent all my time in my room, listening to jazz records. But I had almost no desire to talk to anyone about the experience I gained through books and music. I felt happy just being me and no one else. In that sense I could be called a stack-up loner. — Haruki Murakami

Music Records Quotes By B.B. King

I liked blues from the time my mother used to take me to church. I started to listen to gospel music, so I liked that. But I had an aunt at that time, my mother's aunt who bought records by people like Lonnie Johnson, Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and a few others. — B.B. King

Music Records Quotes By Ice-T

I'm in a very good place to make records. Needing to make money off music is very dangerous. — Ice-T

Music Records Quotes By John Lennon

It's just natural, it's not a great disaster. People keep talking about it like it's The End of The Earth. It's only a rock group that split up, it's nothing important. You know, you have all the old records there if you want to reminisce. — John Lennon

Music Records Quotes By Chuck Klosterman

Record sales don't matter when the people who bought the records are dead and gone. — Chuck Klosterman

Music Records Quotes By Chuck Berry

Music is an important part of our culture and record stores play a vital part in keeping the power of music alive — Chuck Berry

Music Records Quotes By Suzanne Ciani

When I first tried to get a record deal for my original music, labels didn't understand what these instruments were meant to be doing — Suzanne Ciani

Music Records Quotes By Luther Allison

I look in music magazines now and see things on Luther Allison, and my name's getting out there more, thanks to all the good people at Alligator Records and at my management company. — Luther Allison

Music Records Quotes By Shawn Mullins

If it weren't for Criminal Records, Wax-n-facts and other indie record stores I could have only sold my CD's at my shows and by mail order as an independent artist. The greatest stores that have character and include a much wider range of music of music are all independent, mom and pop stores. — Shawn Mullins

Music Records Quotes By Wayne Coyne

It really is no different in the way that we make records and shoot music videos. I don't think of the movie as being a great leap out of my current profession. — Wayne Coyne

Music Records Quotes By Jonathan Leaf

Take just one well-known event: The Beatles' 1964 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. This has been depicted with astonishing regularity as a pivotal cultural moment; in fact an entire movie -- I Wanna Hold Your Hand -- was built around it. And that Sullivan episode was indeed a major event in popular culture. But did you know that in 1961, 26 million people watched a CBS live broadcast of the first performance of a new symphony by classical composer Aaron Copland? Moreover, with all the attention that sixties rock groups receive, it may come as a surprise to learn that My Fair Lady was Columbia Records' biggest-selling album before the 1970s, beating out those of sixties icons Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and The Byrds. — Jonathan Leaf

Music Records Quotes By Beck

Most of my early records were not cohesive at all, just collections of demos recorded in different years. 'Odelay' was the first time I actually got to go in the studio and record a piece of music in a continuous linear fashion, although that was written over a year. — Beck

Music Records Quotes By Linda Barnes

Record company execs eat their young, I swear to God. — Linda Barnes

Music Records Quotes By Regina Spektor

I'd always wanted to work in the studio and experiment with sounds. Things that I'm really influenced by and that I love are like The Beatles and Radiohead, and all those records by bands whose music is really involved. — Regina Spektor

Music Records Quotes By Imelda May

Everybody told me that if I insisted on doing rockabilly music, I'd never have a chance of selling any records. In fact, I lost count of how many people told me to ditch it all together, in favour, I guess, of sounding like everybody else. — Imelda May

Music Records Quotes By Snoop Dogg

I love making music and I'm falling in love with making records, so it's like having two girlfriends. But I can handle it. — Snoop Dogg

Music Records Quotes By Lisa Loeb

A friend of mine once told me that I can't screw up when I play my own music. I also take voice lessons, play other peoples' songs out of music books, and occasionally figure out how to play other people's music from records. This keeps my ears, fingers, and mind working. — Lisa Loeb

Music Records Quotes By Mikal Cronin

I realize that people won't even download the entire album and might just download a song or two and put it in a playlist for a workout or in the background while people do dishes. That's fine and I can't dictate how people listen to my music, but I structure records the way I listen to records. — Mikal Cronin

Music Records Quotes By Girl Talk

I don't think my record collection or musical knowledge is vast. I just listen to the radio all the time - I'm a pop music enthusiast. — Girl Talk

Music Records Quotes By Joan Jett

I plan to stay in music. I plan to keep making records. — Joan Jett

Music Records Quotes By Francois Truffaut

Three films a day, three books a week and records of great music would be enough to make me happy to the day I die. — Francois Truffaut

Music Records Quotes By Jamie Foxx

Well, the album 'Intuition' is out and just went platinum officially. So I think to have the music doing what it's doing right now, man, it's the ultimate. Nobody is really selling records out there but we are at a million records and we dropped it at Christmas, so we are just trying to get that thing to like two million, you know. — Jamie Foxx

Music Records Quotes By Simon Pegg

I would often sit in the corner of the room wearing Dad's massive headphones, carefully replaying the records time after time. It was something I did frequently throughout my childhood with music, comedy and film, inspiring my own creative imagination, the headphones rendering the experience intensely personal, as though it were all happening inside my own head. — Simon Pegg

Music Records Quotes By David Toop

I remember I did quite a lot of interviews when the book and the CD came out, and I did a drivetime interview for Radio London or something. You wouldn't immediately associate the music on Ocean Of Sound with drivetime radio, but people found things that they liked, and the DJ was playing some records at 5 o'clock in the afternoon on a weekday.The man who was playing them said to me, "That Peter Brotzmann track, it's like having your head boiled in acid." — David Toop

Music Records Quotes By Martin Barre

Aqualung was a difficult and very tense album to record ... while I was playing the solo, Jimmy Page walked into the control room and started waving, I thought, should I wave back and mess up the solo or should I just grin and carry on ? ... I just grinned — Martin Barre

Music Records Quotes By Trini Lopez

Everybody recommended me to Sinatra and Don Costa, because everybody was enjoying my music. I got a big following going on. Nino (Tempo) told Don Costa "you gotta come see this guy." And that's how Don Costa heard about me, through Nino Tempo. Then, Don Costa brought me to the attention of Frank Sinatra and Reprise Records. — Trini Lopez

Music Records Quotes By Aaron Zigman

I have a huge record and cd collection of all kinds of great classical, jazz and all music but I find the internet very accessible and quick. — Aaron Zigman

Music Records Quotes By Kesha

I love country music, blues, and punk, and one day I might make those kinds of records. — Kesha

Music Records Quotes By Jam Master Jay

I remember when I was coming up, the music stores where you could get guitar strings was where I got my records from. Now the place where you get your records from is where you can get your DJ mats and your mixers. — Jam Master Jay

Music Records Quotes By Ezra Furman

I'm an amateur at music and an amateur at most things. I like the idea of offering some music and some records and a website to people who feel perplexed. — Ezra Furman

Music Records Quotes By Tyrese Gibson

It's about giving the people what they want. So many people have told me that they've made love to my records so what I've delivered this time is an album about sex. Pretty much every song has that theme. Straight no chasers, it's booty music! — Tyrese Gibson

Music Records Quotes By Jerry Garcia

You have to get past the idea that music has to be one thing. To be alive in America is to hear all kinds of music constantly: radio, records, churches, cats on the street, everywhere music. And with records, the whole history of music is open to everyone who wants to hear it. — Jerry Garcia

Music Records Quotes By Ani DiFranco

People used to make records, as in the record of an event, the event of people playing music in a room, and now everything's cross-marketing, its about sunglasses and shoes, or guns and drugs that you choose. — Ani DiFranco

Music Records Quotes By Snoop Dogg

I want to write, direct, produce, but in steps. I want to take steps. I don't want to just jump in because I sold a lot of records and just feel like I can jump into the movie world. Naw, I want to learn the movie world like I learned the music world. — Snoop Dogg

Music Records Quotes By Linda Ronstadt

I think it was a modest thing I did (Fahrenheit 9/11) ... this is an election year ... I'm not telling them how to vote. I'm saying get information about the issues ... at first there's just silence, then there's 'Yeah!' and then there's 'Boo' ... I have never seen a reaction like this, in all my years of touring ... Clear Channel can't threaten to not play my records because they are not going to play them anyway ... — Linda Ronstadt

Music Records Quotes By Lester Bangs

They're events you remember all your life, like your first real orgasm. And the whole purpose of the absurd, mechanically persistent involvement with recorded music is the pursuit of that priceless moment. So it's not exactly that records might unhinge the mind, but rather that if anything is going to drive you up the wall it might as well be a record. — Lester Bangs

Music Records Quotes By Birdman

We never had a billionaire brand in music; the closest thing we had was Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson sold 750 million records. I think we're gonna set the tone for other youngsters to make more money and see that a billion dollars can be accomplished. — Birdman

Music Records Quotes By T Bone Burnett

We live in an age of music for people who don't like music. The record industry discovered some time ago that there aren't that many people who actually like music. For a lot of people, music's annoying, or at the very least they don't need it. They discovered if they could sell music to a lot of those people, they could sell a lot more records. — T Bone Burnett

Music Records Quotes By Girl Talk

The point of making records for me isn't to hear 300 songs in 50 minutes; it's to hear the 50-minute piece of music. — Girl Talk

Music Records Quotes By Steven Morrissey

The Internet has obviously wiped music off the human map - killed the record shop, and killed the patience of labels who consider debut sales of 300,000 to not be good enough. — Steven Morrissey

Music Records Quotes By John Legend

Hip-hop and R&B are especially fertile bases of collaboration. It always makes good records and good music. — John Legend

Music Records Quotes By Moshe Kasher

I got a naughty thrill out of listening to music that was that dirty, especially being that young and able to listen to it around my parents. Kids would come over to my house to listen to Too $hort records. — Moshe Kasher

Music Records Quotes By Freddie Hubbard

Man, you'd be surprised how much I'm learning - not only about myself, but about the musicians who came before me. You don't realize at first when you listen to Armstrong's records how great this man was and how hard that Hot Five music was to play. After the experience of reading and playing those parts, I have an even greater respect for Louis Armstrong than before — Freddie Hubbard

Music Records Quotes By Sam Hunt

I was a big music fan, but I never bought a bunch of records or was very educated, I guess, on who was who or what was what. — Sam Hunt

Music Records Quotes By Lindsay Lohan

Obviously, I want to sell records, but I do it because I find it therapeutic. In music I can be myself. — Lindsay Lohan

Music Records Quotes By Robbie Robertson

Think about the number of people who do film music, make records and have a Native American heritage - and I may be the only one on the list. — Robbie Robertson

Music Records Quotes By Rashod Ollison

All the men in Daddy's records sang of love with drastically imbalanced emotion. In the span of three minutes, they begged for it and kicked it to the curb. They turned to anybody, even to God, with a perpetual request: Please send me someone to love. But once they got it, love scrambled them. — Rashod Ollison

Music Records Quotes By Marilyn Manson

Music critics get their records for free so their opinions usually don't matter. — Marilyn Manson

Music Records Quotes By Ken Hensley

When we were making vinyl records we had a lot of time limitations for each record so songs were left off for a number of reasons. Now, with CDs, much more music can be included. — Ken Hensley

Music Records Quotes By Damien Rice

I'm not the guy that wants to be famous and make loads of money and sell loads of records. I don't want that. I just want to be true. I want to be ... I want to serve music. I want to be honest. — Damien Rice

Music Records Quotes By E.R. Braithwaite

Their silence was not the result of boredom or apathy, nor were they quiet because it was expected of them or through fear of consequences; but they were listening, actively, attentively listening to those records, with the same raptness they had shown in their jiving; their bodies were still, but I could feel that their minds and spirits were involved with the music. I glanced towards Miss Blanchard and as though she divined my thoughts she smiled at me and nodded in understanding ... — E.R. Braithwaite

Music Records Quotes By Robin Zander

I think Badfinger was the epitome of that type of music before the power pop term was coined. 'No Matter What is always gonna be a great song on the radio. There?s probably two or three others off their records that are as cool like 'Day After Day'. — Robin Zander

Music Records Quotes By Doug Martsch

If people like electronic music, then great - let that be the next thing. I don't think I ever really will, but there's plenty of records for me to go buy. — Doug Martsch

Music Records Quotes By Jeff Tweedy

I've been obsessed with seeing life through music. My records, my relationship with records, my relationship with rock stars, everything that surrounds it, has been really one of the only ways that I ever started to understand the world. — Jeff Tweedy

Music Records Quotes By Ted Nugent

Oh God almighty, another Detroit monster is Chad Smith of the Chili Peppers. Their music is intoxicating between Flea and Chad Smith. They're contemporary because they're still making good records, but I don't think there's anything new that has a groove and soulfulness. The Chili Peppers just stink of soul-and that's the ultimate compliment. They continue what James Brown created. — Ted Nugent

Music Records Quotes By Will Oldham

I still make music. I still write music and I record music, I just don't trust music promotion [and] distribution right now enough to record a new set of diligently worked-upon compositions. I do trust the audience and the audiences very much. — Will Oldham

Music Records Quotes By Mose Allison

[The producer told me:] "We can try one more record, and we'll see how that one does." Those records never did anything. My music never got mentioned. My color got mentioned. — Mose Allison

Music Records Quotes By Mathieu Demy

In music, we can still record analog and then do the post production in digital. In film, sooner or later, we're not even going to be able to film because they won't be able to process. The labs won't exist anymore. You'll just have to do it with digital. — Mathieu Demy

Music Records Quotes By Steve Earle

Records are only one-dimensional. Even film is only one-dimensional. That's why music and live theatre is so important, because it's not the same thing. A recording is just a record of part of the experience, but it's not the whole experience. — Steve Earle

Music Records Quotes By Norah Jones

My first two records are so simply constructed. The reason isn't because I wanted to make simple music. It's because I don't really have the chops. — Norah Jones

Music Records Quotes By Jason Molina

I believe in doing vinyl. As long as vinyl can still be made into a high-quality standard, I'm going to still make all my records as a side A and a side B because that's how I grew up listening to music. — Jason Molina

Music Records Quotes By Nathan Followill

Record stores are great because it's good to physically get your hands on the music instead of downloading. It's always better to get the artwork too. — Nathan Followill

Music Records Quotes By Matt Berninger

There are records that you just sink into. They coincide with what you're going through and become an ally. If our records do that for people, that's the greatest compliment I could ever receive. That's one of the reasons making music is so important to me, because there's a very strange emotional reach. For me - more than books or movies or other things - music is like a mainline to your heart. — Matt Berninger

Music Records Quotes By Taylor Swift

When I think about the things that cause me pain or the things that cause me trouble or frustration, it's not people asking for my autograph; it's people breaking my heart. That happens to you whether you've sold millions of records or whether you're taking classes at college. You're going to believe people when they say that they love you. I don't leave out details when I write songs about that. I try to make my songs as personal as possible because, ultimately, my music started out as just trying to turn my diary entries into something that was a piece of music. And that has never changed. — Taylor Swift

Music Records Quotes By Larry Carlton

Back in the day in my teens I was listening to Joe Pass and Wes Montgomery a lot; before that I was listening to what I would call now the more 'simple' jazz players (but still very valid), like Barney Kessell or Johnny Smith; I learnt a lot of voicings from Johnny Smith records. Now, I listen to the old blues players; that's what you'd hear in my house if there was music on. It would be Albert Collins or Albert King. — Larry Carlton

Music Records Quotes By Peggy Lee

The thing that I always notice that dates a record is the rhythm section. With a good arranger the music can be timeless. But, rhythm can change, because heaven knows, we didn't know rock was going to come in, did we? — Peggy Lee

Music Records Quotes By Noel Gallagher

Gone are the days when Virgin Records was owned by Richard Branson, a fan of music. Now they're all owned by some guy who bought it off some guy who bought it off some guy who wants a return on his investment. — Noel Gallagher

Music Records Quotes By Rivers Cuomo

At 18, I moved to L.A. with my heavy metal band Avant Garde, which was very much influenced by Metallica. At 19, I got a job at Tower Records, and everything started to change very quickly. I started listening to the Velvet Underground, Pixies, early Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and also earlier music like the Beatles. — Rivers Cuomo

Music Records Quotes By Herb Alpert

This was during a period when I was producing Brazil '66 records and got infected by Brazilian music. — Herb Alpert
