I've been planning to do my own riff on Music Monday for a while, and when I saw about the death of HMV on twitter it spurred me into posting.

When I was a wee thing, my godmother gave me a Jason Donovan album for either Christmas or my birthday. It was a reasonable guess, given the fashions of the time and my age, but she didn't know my musical tastes very well. Luckily she also had the foresight to include the receipt. So I toddled in to HMV in Bradford with a Jason Donovan album and a receipt and swapped it for two of the Iron Maiden First Ten Years double 12"ers. This song was on one of them:



You can also get it on Spotify and last.fm.

I spent much happy time in HMV Bradford, although as the years went by I spent less time buying music and more on peripheries. My two most recent purchases there were a set of headphones and an Iron Maiden T-shirt. Both times I looked at the CDs, and both times I thought "bloody hell, I'm not paying that." And therein lies the reason they're gone. I'm sad, but it's kind of inevitable.

RIP HMV.
