In the 90s, when people had parties would they just throw on a CD?

We’d burn mixtapes which is just like making a playlist
A lot of folks had CD changers and the nice ones allowed you to swap out discs while one was still playing (3+1 or 6+1). Then you set it to random and had several hours of music.
Five cd carousel on random.
By the late 90s, if you were tech savvy enough, you would have winamp and a bunch of mp3s you downloaded from Napster
Usually one person would get control of the CD player and choose music for the rest of the night.
two turntables and a microphone
Early to mid-90s it’d be a mix tape or CD. By the late 90s we’d have Winamp on a laptop fed into a stereo
Everyone had a case with like 50albums in it, usually in their car.
we used to take a blank CD and we’d “burn it” meaning we’d put songs on it that we’d bootleg
But honestly, those “teen/American Pie” movies where all these incredibly hot people are dancing and grooving to the beat are largely bullshit.
Maybe I was just a loser, but every “party” I went to as a teen was just us sitting around sullenly doing drugs and watching some head-trip movie.
We had proper decks and played vinyl.
Lmao, well we’re old now.
I remember just putting on the radio in the eighties.
In the nineties, it was CDs. If you were throwing a bigger party, you might have a DJ.
Yes, or a multidisc player.
Can attest. I was there.
Don’t ask us about the mix tapes we recorded off the radio in the 80s
The elite would also burn DVD’s with rentals from blockbuster to keep their own copies instead of buying the movie but for legal purposes I have no idea how that’s even possible
Now That’s What I Call Music and similar compilations were popular. Many of us remember TV commercials including one of 60s hits that had one burnout ask the other: ‘hey, man, is that Freedom Rock?! Turn it up!’ All your favorite hits in one cool collection
Edit: here’s the Freedom Rock commercial, man! I totally wanted that tape. https://youtu.be/2eGWW8KOQio
In turkmenistan we had no music in our 90s parties
Usually yeah. The best ones would be made for the party and burned after downloading music from Napster or Limewire
Yeah, we dinosaurs did that.
A few times we’d put on a VHS tape of the Wizard of Oz, mute it, then put the CD of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon on, starting at the third lion roar.
It is fascinating to watch, the lyrics of the songs absolutely do too match, exactingly, the movements in the film. Pink Floyd can deny it all they want, I don’t believe it for a single second. That’s way too big of a coincidence.
Tech 12s and plenty of vinyl at every party I went to in the 90s. Those were the times!
Radio was often employed. On Saturday nights when I was in high school in the mid 90’s the local small town radio rock station played a lot of good music without many ads from 8-12. It was great.
You were the shit if you had one of those 5-disc or those mega 400-disc changers.
