We have collected the best Record Quotes by famous authors including Martin Garrix, Louis Sullivan, Hugh Laurie, James Frain, Tory Lanez and many others, we hope that among them you will find the right thought.
When I come up with a melody in my head, it could be anywhere: in the shower, on the plane, in bed – often when I’m on the go. I’ll record it on my phone with my own voice, humming. When I get to the studio, I check which melodies work.
It is the mass dream of inverted self, populous with fears overt and secret, that forms the continuous but gossamer thread upon which are strung as phantom beads all civilizations from the remotest past of record to that of the present day and hour.
It’s easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to make a blues record.
I don’t keep a record of the parts I’ve played, and I don’t compare characters, but maybe I should? I could construct a graphic that grades badness and madness levels? Interesting idea.
I just freestyle. I don’t actually write the words on paper. It’s just whatever comes into my mind. I’ll record three or four lines at a time, get a good take, and do three or four more. It may be whatever comes into my mind. But I care about my craft a lot more than a lot of other people.
I get like a melody that comes up and I try to write it down or record it. Hum it into a tape recorder or write it down on some manuscript paper. It could happen at any time, on the road or off the road, but mostly, you know, at home.
Oh, Michael Jackson is Michael Jackson. And no matter if he sold 40 million records off of one record and sold 15 off his last or whatever the counts may be, Michael Jackson will be Michael Jackson.
I did write a letter to the archdiocese who’d banned the song, Only the Good Die Young, asking them to ban my next record.
I guess I set a world record for errors. I had a pretty good arm, see, but I didn’t have much control.
Nuclear energy, in terms of an overall safety record, is better than other energy.
What is there to be afraid of? The worst thing that can happen is you fail. So what? I failed at a lot of things. My first record was horrible.
I gave away ‘Life in Hell’ when it was a little ‘zine, and sold it at record stores for $1, and I knew from the time that I first did it that I would continue to do it, because it was fun.
I can’t tell you how many things I’ve worked on where I sat on it for a few years, and then somebody else did something very similar. Whether it’s some weird vocal effect you hear on another record, or a drum beat, or even a song title, a subject matter, or a mixture of different kinds of music.
From the first place of liquid darkness, within the second place of air and light, I set down the following record with its mixture of fact and truths and memories of truths and its direction toward the Third Place, where the starting point is myth.
Poetry is the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I never made beats to make beats; I only made them when there was a record to make them for. That’s one of the things that has changed in hip-hop that’s made me like it less. It feels much more like it’s a producer-driven medium, where there are all these tracks that are completely interchangeable.
We were number one most added at radio, when the single came out and that’s much different. It took like eight months for any radio to happen on the first record, so a lot more support has happened right out of the box.
I have no desire at all to become the winningest coach at Notre Dame. The record belongs to Knute Rockne or some other coach in the future.
The hippocampus helps record both types of memories initially, and it helps retain them for the medium term. The hippocampus also helps us access old personal memories in long-term storage in other parts of the brain.
Don’t give up, be positive and if you know someone who knows someone at a record company don’t stop beating down their door till you get heard. Don’t ever say it’ll never happen or it’ll never happen.
Mary J. Blige
Somewhere around the fifth, sixth album, we got this little formula together where we knew how to record Too $hort songs. You need the bassline, a good drum pattern, call in the keyboard, the guitars – it’s just a way we mixed it all together.
Every record we do, we do one song we didn’t write.
Our record number of teenagers must become our record number of high school and college graduates and our record number of teachers, scientists, doctors, lawyers, and skilled professionals.
Even though the popularity and the fanbase is much much greater, and more people have heard about me through things like the Grammys and the Ivors and touring and word of mouth, it doesn’t reflect in the sales of the record and doesn’t go into my pocket.
We are a business, and you do a little of what you think’s right, pay your bills, and attract… a single record attracts attention to your concerts and your albums.
There are weapons that are simply thoughts. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy.
I’m a numbers guy, and I think numbers sometimes tell stories and sometimes they don’t. When you look at the NBA, when teams shoot 45% or better from the floor, what is their record? And if they shoot under that what is their record?
I think we need one recognized, respected public figure to make a tough, blunt statement on just what Reagan’s record is and what he might do to the country, let alone the Republican Party before Christmas.
DWYCK’ was only intended to be a B-side of ‘Take It Personal,’ because we had done a record with Nice & Smooth for their album, Ain’t a Damn Thing Changed, called ‘Down The Line.’ They were returning the favor with ‘DWYCK,’ being that we let them borrow the ‘Manifest’ instrumental.
It’s an album that is a little bit different and probably isn’t easy to get out. It’s not likely that a major label would have picked it up and said that they had a smash hit record.
I created ‘You Can’t Stop Me’ without trying. There was nothing premeditated about that record.
Blackheart Records being 25 years old represents staying power and the fact that we weren’t able to get a record out through conventional means, so we had to create this record company to put out our records if we wanted to be a band that had records to give out to their fans.
Never mind what others do; do better than yourself, beat your own record from day to day, and you are a success.
William J. H. Boetcker
The music that I chose during my life, it wasn’t arbitrary. It was all in my family home when I was growing up. I never tried to record anything I hadn’t heard before the age of 10. Otherwise, I couldn’t do it authentically.
It was a world that I wanted to record because it was such a miracle visitation to me.
I get bored easily, so I need to do a lot. I’ve started a record label, so I get to nurture new talent and talk about music, which is a passion of mine. I’ve written another book. And I get to come to work and do the TV show, which is always really fun.
My home studio is my private instrument for me only. It’s not intended to record anyone but me.
I have been blessed with some incredible compositions to record and perform and all of my songs have had the ability to grow as I and those who have supported this career of mine for these 50 years have.
I think most paintings are a record of the decisions that the artist made. I just perhaps make them a little clearer than some people have.
But I don’t have a very good track record with royalty. My dress fell off in front of Prince Charles at the Prince’s Trust, so I’m just living up to my reputation.
Leaving Def Jam was kind of a blessing in disguise because we can make whatever record we want.
So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear. That there is no alternative way, so far discovered, of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.
Musicians are there in front of you, and the spectators sense their tension, which is not the case when you’re listening to a record. Your attention is more relaxed. The emotional aspect is more important in live music.
You can’t come out on a record dissing the system and be on a label that’s connected to the system.
I made a dollar a day sweeping a laundry out. Then we made a record that was number two in Los Angeles. We got so excited hearing it on the radio that Carl threw up.
I love working with producers, like doing the record with Laidback Luke on ‘Turbulence’ and working with Afrojack on ‘No Beef.’
I know when ‘California Dreamin’ was first released, we heard it on KFWB or KHJ or something, and it was so exciting to hear the record come on the radio.
My audience is the baby-boomers, the bulk of the population. This is also a group that is being ignored by most record companies because they’re not the Top 40 hit singles market. They forget these people still listen to music.
When I was a kid and I bought a record, I ripped that thing open, I wanted to know who was playing what, what studio it was cut at, who was the string arranger, who was the engineer.
That’s the nice thing about being a live act. I can get the audience, but it’s for the moment. It’s like, ‘Can I do it tonight?’ And you can see when people like you. But on record – and with the pen – it’s almost for all time. Really, a lot more thought has to go into it.
I think we are coming to a new era where people will record much faster.
Hanson has rapid female fans, which I’m completely proud of, but a lot of fans are a contingent that have grown up with us really – our peers. There’s younger fans. More and more guys are Hanson fans, musicians or kind of guys who were into a Beatles record.
‘Karnan’ ran for 100 days each at three theatres in Chennai alone. That is a record, since no movie runs for more than 100 days. My hope is that I don’t ruin the original if it is remade.
Composers today get a TV script on Friday and have to record on Tuesday. It’s just dreadful to impose on gifted talent and expect decent music under these conditions.
I did a pop album, ‘Sogno,’ in 1999. I think it’s important to record another pop album because many people love pop music. By this kind of repertoire, some people can later discover classical music.
I thought I would be governor of Massachusetts. I stood on a pile of my old albums and said, ‘I’m the only one with a record to stand on.’
PETA has a proven track record of success. Each victory PETA wins for the animals is a stepping stone upon which we build a more compassionate world for all beings – and we will never give up our fight until all animals are treated with respect and kindness.
I think we really almost burnt ourselves out on one record.
I wanna record these girls individually. And then, I wanna cut a blues album on me. But all of it, original stuff, you know. When I listen to the blues today, it’s like they all sounds similar. I wanna do something different, to try to add to the blues flavor.
To come in and win three races already this year and maybe set a record by winning four is pretty unique. But guys like Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace and these guys are not wanting that to happen.
I’ve recorded 25 or 30 albums. I know that sometimes when you work with producers who are kinda dictators, it doesn’t help you make a better record.
A lot of people are trying to get me to go solo. It’s just a thing I have to deal with a lot. Record labels are always trying to get me to go solo.
It’s a trip to have a Greatest Hits record. It’s a trip.
When I lost my decathlon world record I took it like a man. I only cried for ten hours.
I belonged to the Columbia Record Club, and that’s where my records came from. For some reason, I was in the ‘jazz’ category. I got Benny Goodman records and Miles Davis, J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding, and that kind of stuff. I really was not a jazz guy at all, but I knew some of those names.
If the music in a groove fits with what you’re playing, then play it; if not, then you can play it backwards. If that doesn’t work, you try it at a different speed. If it really doesn’t work you just break it. The whole ritual to put a record on a turntable just to listen to it, I don’t do that too often.
Da Pak was a group out of Chicago. It was a put-together group. We actually met for the first time at this showcase. They were like ‘Yo, you should do a song together.’ So we did. It just so happened that the name of the song was ‘Wolf Pak.’ They said, ‘Y’all should be a group called Da Pak, and here’s a record deal.’
David Dinkins was a financial disaster personally – and as an administrator. That is what the record shows.
My favorite Bob Dylan record is the very first one where he sings one Bob Dylan song and the rest of them are his interpretations of the Dust Bowl-era folk songs, or even going back as far as the mass influx of people coming into the U.S. during the gold rush. His interpretations of those songs are incredible.
My first record was about childhood. There were a lot of nursery rhyme and fairytale references; it was all about being naive.
I don’t listen to music. I very rarely listen to music. I only listen for information. I listen when a friend sends me a song or a new record.
My father’s record collection was full of New Orleans music of all kinds. I used to listen to the radio in New York, and all there was on it at the time was Madonna and Michael Jackson, so it sort of passed me by.
I tried hard not to think about the scope or scale of making a record that would be heard by millions and millions of people. I did a pretty good job of tuning that out.
After that initial success, every chance we got we’d hire that remote recording truck and just record stuff at the Whisky because it was so inexpensive.
Fifty years from now I’ll be just three inches of type in a record book.
My younger brother ended up the British chess champion 10 times, a record.
I am just going to try to run my personal best. If it comes as a world record, I would appreciate it. But I would treat it as a personal best.
When I create a song, I immediately think about what I’m going to wear when I perform that song. I think about the music video treatment and about how I’m going to look on stage when I perform the record. The connection is so obvious that it’s a single package. An outfit, to me, is almost a tool to express the music.
Nowadays you can record on your laptop with Pro Tools, which I do quite often.
When grandpa was ill and could’ve died, I would have swapped all my record sales so he could get well. He is the reason I am a singer. He was my best friend growing up.
It’s really important to be free and be open and honest about the things you want to do. Just ’cause you want to make a solo record or another record with another band, it doesn’t have to be an insult or a slight to the band you’ve been with for a long time.
Capitalism – for the record – has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system in the world.
You know you’re a hopeless record nerd when your time travel fantasies always come around to how cool it would be to go back to 1973 and buy all the great funk and jazz and salsa records that came out that year on tiny obscure labels and are now really rare and expensive.
I was involved in the color correction and the digital color correction. In an odd way, you end up making a film many times-the DVD, the archival record of a high-definition master, and so on.
We’ve got great fans that rock and roll won’t have, because you can have a one-hit record and country music used to, not so much anymore and you have a fan forever.
I have learned not to overlook the advantages of being me. From when I was a softball player, and I held the stolen bases record. I would slide into second with my prostheses, and the girl on the base could either step aside or meet two wooden sticks.
Its very sort of spontaneous and organic, not a preconceived sort of jamming. Now we record everything, cause sometimes you’ll forget, you know, ‘what was that thing again?’ So we record everything.
I love loud music. I listen loud, and that’s part of how I’ve learned how to do this. Record softly and play back loud and a whole other thing happens.
T Bone Burnett
When I was making my first record, I think I felt slightly trapped by my mind and my genre. I think in one way, that archaic language I was using came from a kind of mild obsession with the devil.
Music is my main goal, but I’m not going to rush a record out. There are so many actors who have come out with albums these days. I don’t want to do it because it’s the thing to do. I want to wait until the time is right.
When my record company rejected ‘Full Moon Fever’, I was hurt so bad. I was pretty far along in my career at that point. I’d never had anything rejected; I’d never really even had a comment. So when that happened, it was really just a board to the forehead. But then, finally, I picked myself up.
I’ve always had just enough success to buy me some more tour dates and another record.
Republicans and blacks had an unlikely alliance around ‘max black’ after the 1990 census. By concentrating black voters in some districts, the strategy elected a record number of black congressmen in 1992. But the remaining ‘bleached’ districts were more likely to elect white Republicans.
A little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues.
I never thought of myself as capable of stirring up – generating – the actual drumroll for a record, you know, all the press.
Even though we didn’t actually record it as the Move I had already written a song called ‘Dear Elaine’, which I subsequently put on the Boulders album. I thought at the time that was probably the best song I’d written.
I am a record executive and I shall be right there in your face with my records.
Even if I don’t release it myself, somebody else might hear it and want to record it. When you write a song, it gives it that potential.
I’m a record producer and songwriter; I’m a problem-solver.
I should be the one to say what I do. It’s just not done that way anymore in Nashville, and I can’t do it the other way. That’s how our record label came about.
The lowest and vilest alleys of London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.
Arthur Conan Doyle
A good record transports you to another place.
History will record not only the transformational changes President Obama brought about, but also that in 2008, he was elected president with 69 million votes – the largest popular vote for any one person in the history of this country, based on a campaign of hope and inspiration.
We have spent so much time worrying about a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor,” the attack that takes out the power grid, that we have focused far too little on the subtle manipulation of data that can mean that no election, medical record, or self-driving car can be truly trusted.
David E. Sanger
And the thing that I always tried to do with important singers when I met them was to sit down and record everything they knew, give them a first real run-through of their art.
It can get a little costly if you try and leave it until then to write songs. But you’re writing all the time. You’re collecting songs. I’ve had songs that have been collected over a two-year period for my next record.
Someone asked me the other day what my favourite record shop was, and I said YouTube.
I always had a standard of, back when I was doing the country music I always told people I would never record a song that I wouldn’t sit down and sing in front of my mom and dad.
To me, the whole thing with the roots of rap music was when the DJ had to supply all the music for the group with two turntables. And the whole criteria of what that DJ would use had nothing to do with what type of band made a record.
Just as our brains fill in the details of an image our eyes record only roughly, so, too, do our brains employ tricks we are unaware of to fill in details about people we don’t know intimately.
You don’t need a record company to turn you into anything.
I think I’ll take my record of 13 goals to the grave.
Regarding Jose Mourinho, I hope I can learn a lot from him – he is a coach with a fantastic record.
I done paid Gunna to write my songs. I never put the songs out but like when I first started rapping I used to pay him like $100 like ‘I’ma give you a $100 write something for me so I can try to learn to go in and record it.’
People are interested in writing, and often there’s an unjustifiable sense of people to believe my talking to them for the book is going to accord them any sort of fame. Which it won’t. At the same time, they can be more circumspect if they know they’re on the record.
I value being able to go into a record shop and people leaving me alone.
Contrary to popular assumptions, the Bible is not a record of the blessed good, but rather the blessed bad. That’s not a typo. The Bible is a record of the blessed bad. The Bible is not a witness to the best people making it up to God; it’s a witness to God making it down to the worst people.
I think the good thing about the Internet is to give something away and to sell something else. Get a business model like that because the old brick and mortar record stores are falling apart, and the big record companies are collapsing under their own weight.
I really just tried to make a record full of great songs, which is the goal I always have.
I have a lot of memories, but I don’t go into capitalizing on that. Something’s got to be my own. I’m not doing the record to sit here and broadcast my memories of my father.
Lisa Marie Presley
That first record, I wrote before I had a record deal.
My first record I ever got was ‘Full Moon Fever.’ My dad gave me a copy when I was maybe nine years old or something. And I listened to the heck out of that record. I loved that record.
Laura Jane Grace
If anybody wants to beat me, let them run a world record.
Well, I was making a record, and I had to choose a name, because they said, you know, you can’t make a record under the name of Reg Dwight, because it’s never going to – you know, it’s not attractive enough.
When you are in your 20’s and 30’s, you just want a hit record and you don’t really care how it happens.
When I’m writing a record, I kind of don’t listen to much music. Just because I want to be inspired solely on the emotion; just based on how it feels.
If someone wants to sticker a record for whatever reason, that’s fine. But once it affects someone’s opportunity to, you know, get that record, then I have a problem with it.
Paul has more, I think, of a feel for the stage. Whereas I have it more for the notes themselves. I love record making and mixing, arranging, producing. That I love. I love to make beautiful things, but I don’t like to perform.
Walking into the studio making ‘Scared Hearts Club,’ it was important for us as artists to write a joyful record, but using joy as a weapon because joy is the best weapon against oppression; it’s the best weapon against depression.
There is some sampling on my records and a lot of what I call replays, where I’d have musicians come in the studio and replay the sample from the original record. But mainly, we’d come up with our own music.
The Bible interprets life from its particular perspective; it does not record in a factual way the human journey through history.
John Shelby Spong
The way to develop self-confidence is to do the thing you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you.
William Jennings Bryan
I made the record that my life had me make. Each one is like a diary.
As early as I can remember, I would put on plays with my cousin and make my dad record them. In kindergarten, I started doing the school plays, and it just continued.
I will say this, – though: If it is true that fusion will put unlimited amounts of energy into our hands, then I’m worried. Our record on this score is extremely poor.
David R. Brower
No, if it was up to me every record would be brand new studio material but Atlantic records asked me to put out a full live record because my tour really did do well last year.
I got to realizing that I wanted to record, I wanted to experiment. And doing those same old songs the same old way – I said, ‘I think it’s time for me to have some fun.’
I don’t think the label cares about an album… People just want their number-one record.
There are no calculations in the records I make. I record as many songs as I can. Songs that I think are my best.
Terence Trent D’Arby
If you break an individual record, it’s because of the greatness that comes before you.
However, the Bible is called the Word of God because the whole transcript is an inspired, faithful, and infallible record of what God determined essential for us to know about Himself, the cosmos in which we live, our spiritual allies and adversaries, and our fellow man.
If you are a superstar, or whatever you want to call yourself, a person who’s had outrageous success, and you decide to go indie and tell the record companies to screw themselves? That takes a certain amount of courage. And bullheadedness, really.
At this point I’ve got a bit of a track record. So people realize that when ‘Weird Al’ wants to go parody, it’s not meant to make them look bad… it’s meant to be a tribute.
Whenever I come out with a hit record, they’ll say, ‘Ah, that’s because of R. Kelly. Oh, it’s because of Ashanti. Oh, he’s lucky.’
I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to wait for people to do things for me, and I never want to feel stuck. Why sit around and be like, ‘I wish my label would book me some studio time,’ if I can just buy my own studio equipment and figure out how to run Pro Tools and record it myself?
We’d been noticing how much more important the internet had become – once information is out there in the world now, anyone can get it. Since that was beginning to happen with the record anyway, we figured, OK, let’s just stream it for free ourselves.
If I didn’t love it, I would not record it.
I’m finding myself really angry over spending and the deficit. I’m finding myself really angry over what’s happening in the Middle East, the decision to stay in Afghanistan indefinitely. I’m angry about cap and trade. And I’ve been on record for a long time on the failed war on drugs.
At 13 years old, I realized I could start my own band. I could write my own song, I could record my own record. I could start my own label. I could release my own record. I could book my own shows. I could write and publish my own fanzine. I could silk-screen my own T-shirt. I could do this all myself.
I didn’t feel the need for anonymous affection, for people in the dark applauding. To me, it would be like writing a novel and then getting up every night and reading your novel. Everything I did is on the record and, if you want to hear it, just listen to the record.
My best country record only sold 200,000 copies.
I now have a home recording studio, which I can operate entirely on my own, as well as a portable version of the same which allows me to record anywhere I like and simply swap out the hard drives for use in the home studio.
One comes, and one goes. Basically, what you leave behind is the record.
Asif Ali Zardari
I never race for records. The motivation to try to beat the record is not enough to continue. You have to enjoy it.
If you make a record, you should ask yourself, ‘Did it make someone cry, in a good way, not a bad way?’ There should almost be subjective emotional criteria for evaluating work, instead of just profitability.
A record company used to be a very good thing, but they ended up soul-destroyingly trapping people in the accounting department. And you couldn’t get any further, and the heads of each department were changing all the time, so you couldn’t have any permanent relationship within the corporation.
I’m continuing to produce and will start a new record soon, as well.
For the record, I’m a clinical workaholic.
You have this special connection with someone if you’re their first record or their first concert or their first poster or whatever it is.
I record my radio show, and my staff makes me a nice lunch in the kitchen, usually fish – whatever’s freshest and line-caught – and a salad. I drink water and herbal tea, a blend of catnip, elderberry, and horehound.
A few of these interviews have gone slightly awry, because every now and again there has been the odd conflict of interest between interviews because of the Iron Maiden record, and I am a bit long-winded.
When I was up in New York, the first record my parents bought me was the Terror Squad record with ‘Lean Back.’
There are a lot of stuff on the record that I am thinking is generic but actually it is just as good as everybody else who is putting stuff out at the time.
A record is just a snapshot of where you are at any time.
I’ve been doing my record label for 15 years called Dim Mak. I started my label when I was 19 in ’96. I started putting out an eclectic roster of artists. In 2003, we found a band called Bloc Party, and in 2004, we started getting remixes for Bloc Party, and at the same time I was throwing Dim Mak parties in Los Angeles.
I’ve always loved coach Brett Brown. I’ve been on record. I’ve been a fan of his for years.
The record shows that I’ve kept a very steady hand on the helm throughout some enormous challenges.
Before college, I acted in my room, to classical music, because music tells stories. I’d put on a record and proceed, silently. I’d keep putting the needle back to a certain segment because I hadn’t died well enough. I had to really, really feel dead. I’d love to do a death scene.
I do a lot of video games – I have a YouTube channel where I record me playing video games with my friends and post it. That’s a hobby I have and a lot of what I do in my off time.
The first thing which I can record concerning myself is, that I was born. These are wonderful words. This life, to which neither time nor eternity can bring diminution – this everlasting living soul, began. My mind loses itself in these depths.
I tried to have more than one emotion on the record.
I like home recordings and studio recordings just as much as each other – I don’t think one is better – but for this record I wanted to see what I could do in a real studio with real producers.
I have never taken more than two weeks to record an album throughout my career.
I wanted to play drums, and I got a set when I was 14 and just started to play in the house, to the stereo. I liked Ringo Starr, of course. And Sandy Nelson. I had his record, ‘Let There Be Drums,’ and I’d play along with it.
My office has been one of the most scrupulous in the country with regard to the protection of individual rights. I’ve been on record for years in law journals and books as championing the rights of the individual against the oppressive power of the state.
I think musicians and artists are the most philanthropic people I know. Their charity record of the music business would hold up to the work of anybody.
In a way song writing can almost be detrimental, because suddenly you find an outlet that is a kind of cheating. You don’t need to have direct communication. You can say, ‘I can’t describe it to you, but I will record it and send it to you.’
Record contracts are just like – I’m gonna say the word – slavery. I would tell any young artist… don’t sign.
I love doing third albums. A group makes its first album, and then the record company rushes them into the studio to make their second album. After that, they go, ‘Whoa, wait a second.’ They get a little more confident. They step back and say, ‘Okay, now we’re gonna do it.’
I had a record called ‘Touchdown.’ It was really bubbling in my city, and I used to go to different clubs and perform.
O. T. Genasis
What’s happened at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq is one of the grossest violations of human rights under the Geneva Conventions that we have record of. It is simply monstrous.
The U.S. State Department has a consistent record of error in the assessment of Asian situations and judging Red Chinese intentions.
You put an old Misfits record on, and it sounds like it came out yesterday.
I see through my eyes; the camera is just a machine to record it for me.
It’s not always easy to stand aside and be unable to do anything except record the sufferings around one.
When we look out into space, we’re looking back in time; the light from a galaxy a billion light-years away, for instance, will take a billion years to reach us. It’s an amazing thing. The history is there for us to see. It’s not mushed up like the geologic record of Earth. You can just see it exactly as it was.
I’m still driving along on the pop freeway of life. Thinking even further into the future, I definitely want to make an acoustic record. I want to try lots of different things.
With the Beatles, we’d been very spoiled because we had George Martin who worked for the record label we were going to be signed to. That was very fortunate, because we grew together.
To be honest, I don’t want No. 1’s anymore. Now, don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t mind the odd few, but I’d also like a record going in at eight and staying around.
My brother and I had a real love-hate relationship with my success. There was some bitterness there that I didn’t understand until recently, but I told him that if I ever did a record I wanted him to play on it.
In the studio you can auto tune vocals, and with drums, you can put them on a grid and make them perfect. I hate that sound. When someone hands me a record and the drums are perfectly gridded and the vocals are perfectly auto tuned, I throw it out the window. I have no interest in rock music being like that.
I felt like I was making a record under the radar, and that is my favorite way to do anything.
I have ambitions to do a Broadway record one of these days and get in the studio with like, a real orchestra. I’m a big musical theatre geek.
A year before I met Mark Brydon – he was the one I used to make all the music with in Moloko – I was living in Sheffield with a guy who was studying architecture. I used to go to his college and crash the lectures there. I had enrolled to do a fine art course, but then I met Mark, and we signed a record deal instead.
I have a track record of under-promising and over-delivering, whether it’s on the economy, border protection, welfare reforms.
America is a country that doesn’t know where it is going but is determined to set a speed record getting there.
Laurence J. Peter
There is a brief moment when all there is in a man’s mind and soul and spirit is reflected through his eyes, his hands, his attitude. This is the moment to record.
Of course, I want to sell this record – there’s no point making it otherwise.
I called Daley Thompson after the Games of ’84, when he won. He’d had this phenomenal decathlon for nine events – and then he went out there and jogged the 1,500 meters and missed the world record by, like, three points.
You never know what’s going to happen sometimes, or what you think’s going to happen never happens, or when you least expect it, the Santana record comes along and just blows up.
Brett Kavanaugh was a very difficult Supreme Court nominee for liberals to oppose. He had a stellar reputation, an impeccable record, and a genial disposition.
I’m 10-12 years into life as an out gay man, and I’m a different person. I think there are things about my journey that might be useful to other people, and coming up with a hit record on its own doesn’t seem to be enough anymore.
Publishers and record companies love a broken heart.
If you’re living a nice lifestyle and you have no problems, you put on our record, you won’t get it.
Some books claim I have already clocked up a century of Grands Prix, but let me put the record straight. Australia will be my 100th start, and I aim to mark the milestone with a cracking performance. It could even be celebrated with a victory.
I’m not keeping track, but the record is there for someone to break.
I think the record speaks for itself. These are two individuals who have been for the war when the headlines were good and against it when their poll ratings were bad.
Since the decline of record companies and music sales, I’ve always played live.
My favorite record label of all time is Motown. That era of music was my favorite.
The record companies don’t give you a chance, like in the old days when they went, ‘Here’s a pile of money. Go make a good record!’
‘The Black Parade’ is an epic, theatrical, orchestral, big record that is also a concept album.
My record speaks for itself.
One of the things I’m proudest of is, on my record ‘That Was the Year that Was’ in 1965, I made a joke about spending $20 billion sending some clown to the moon. I was against the manned space program then, and I’m even more against it now, that whole waste of money.
Even Disney – off the record, but on the record – knows that I have the power. They love me because of that. I don’t act like it. I’m not walking around all cocky, but the tables have turned.
I never expect those type of dudes to even listen to my music but for one of those Juggalos to come up to me like, ‘Man, that ‘All My Life’ record, man you was talking to me.’ That struck me like, ‘Damn, maybe people, you never know who’s listening and who you might be touching with your music.’
Any form of a winning record in the conference is an accomplishment.
You can write a great country record and still be angry. Who’s angrier than Toby Keith? He’s angrier than the average 10 rappers.
Sell your intellectual property based on a track record of success and innovation.
I wanted to make a reggaeton record. So I sent the record to Ozuna, and he killed it. Then I felt like I wanted to add a more female vibe but still keep some Spanish touch, so I asked Selena and Cardi, and it all came together.
The history of the Erie Railroad ever since 1901 has been a record of progress.
I thought that I held the record of most appearances on the Bob Hope Show, but I think – It’s Brooke Shields.
I didn’t live at school, I lived where I could and studied what I enjoyed studying. I took what I wanted from that education but was making my first record at the same time. I don’t know anyone from school. I was just leading a different life. I was really interested in writing and other things.
Lana Del Rey
I’ve been through a lot, both personally and professionally, and the album that I started to record two and a half years ago is a different album from the one that exists today. I even changed the album title. First it was ‘All I Want is Everything,’ and now it’s ‘Jumping Trains.’
It is a maxim among these lawyers, that whatever hath been done before, may legally be done again: and therefore they take special care to record all the decisions formerly made against common justice and the general reason of mankind.
Oscar Charleston was the Willie Mays of his day. Nobody ever played center field better than Willie Mays. Suppose they had never given Willie a chance, and we said that, would anybody believe there was a kid in Alabama who was that good? Or there was a black guy in Atlanta who might break Babe Ruth’s home run record? No.
The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
In 1996 – when, for the fifth year in a row, we had the best record among major airlines for on-time performance and for baggage handling and the fewest complaints for the number of customers carried – we dedicated an airplane to all of our 25,000 people. We put all their names on the outside of the overhead bins.
I always tell people that to be the funny person in a Steve Martin movie is like getting a call that Keith Moon wants you to play drums on his record. He should be playing drums on his record.
So, as I step out and take these first steps on this journey to do my own thing, I didn’t want to have to get anybody’s approval on anything. I didn’t want to have to ask a record label ‘Is this okay for the album cover? What time do you think I should go on tour this year?’
I know that attaching memories to books may be going out of the world, but while it lasts, it’s a strong record of your life.
Maybe some people, when they sit down to write their great novel or make their great record or paint their great painting, they have it all planned out in their head. But for me, it’s never worked that way.
So people ask, ‘But how can you work for a friend?’ I say it’s because I know that the magazine is called ‘O.’ The bottom line is somebody has to have the final word. Oprah’s not right all the time, but her record is pretty damn good. That’s not to say you can’t disagree.
‘Supermodel’ was a hard record for me; it was an emotional record to write. I was purging a lot of stuff with that album, and I think the one thing I didn’t really consider, that I’d be supporting it for two years and living in that state of mind every night.
In February 1991, I was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles to have my feet amputated. Three years earlier, I had broken the national 100 meters hurdles record while a student at UCLA and was a favourite for the event at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
I noticed that on the Beach Boys’ ‘Pet Sounds’ record they could get away with racy lyrics like that because of how they looked and the melodic way they sang the suggestive stuff. They slid it by the censors.
Bring on your tear gas, bring on your grenades, your new supplies of Mace, your state troopers and even your national guards. But let the record show we ain’t going to be turned around.
I’m recording another demo for another batch of record labels that we’ll shop it around to.
For myself, I can only say that I am astonished and somewhat terrified at the results of this evening’s experiments. Astonished at the wonderful power you have developed, and terrified at the thought that so much hideous and bad music may be put on record forever.
I’m proud of my record of reform, taking on my own party.
I’m still shocked when people say, ‘You haven’t done a studio record in 20 years.’ I try to make excuses for it, but the truth is I just wasn’t with it.
If there’s going to be another Misfits record, I’d probably have to write the stuff.
Everything around a writer, or musician in the record business, probably everything in all the United States or in all of western civilization, is about competition.
T Bone Burnett
There’s certain countries that you can’t get in if you’ve got a criminal background record. There’s certain jobs in the States that you can’t get because you’ve got a criminal background record. That follows you the rest of your life… and that’s something you have to deal with the rest of your life.
And I’m also looking for a comeback record and it has to touch a lot of people.
I must have some sort of record in failing to get into the charts.
I love music and hopefully I’ll be able to do something with it – I just have to find time to get into the studio and record a few songs.
I think I’ve been lucky to work with so many lovely people. But there’s Joshua Bell, who’s the world’s greatest violinist. We worked together live and once, for his record, but I really would want to work with him on one of my records.
In the Olympics, everything goes back to square one. The world champion or the world record holder or the ninth last year are fighting for the same medal, and you have got to go there like it was the first time.
I always wanted to make a pop record. I’m a dancer myself, so I want to make something that people listen to and just want to dance to.
No breed of cats in its proper condition can by any stretch of the imagination be thought of as even slightly ungraceful – a record against which must be pitted the depressing spectacle of impossibly flattened bulldogs, grotesquely elongated dachshunds, hideously shapeless and shaggy Airedales, and the like.
H. P. Lovecraft
I often explain it to people that if you listen to a Who record and then go see the Who live, it’s like two different bands. That’s how Humble Pie worked. We were definitely a lot more ferocious live because of the energy that the entire population of us had.
The friendship I had with Elvis began to take shape in 1968 when I was recording in Memphis. I’d record during the day, and Elvis would send one of his guys over to bring me to Graceland at night. Everything you’ve heard about Graceland during Elvis’s glory days is true and then some.
Arguably, the families most at need of housing assistance are systematically denied it because they’re stamped with an eviction record. Moms and kids are bearing the brunt of those consequences.
When you hear a large symphony orchestra. for instance, in a concert hall, there’s a big, sweeping sound that just doesn’t get on to a record.
I tend to write at the piano, but usually the melody and lyrics come first. Like, I’ll be in the shower, and I’ll start singing, and the melody and the lyric will just come out. Then I’ll quickly try to finish the shower, try to remember it, record it on my phone and save it for the studio.
Altho that is so, Ireland has always denied and Ireland still denies that the Union was binding upon her either legally or morally. And here on this historic occasion we have assembled to renew our protest and to place it upon record.
John Edward Redmond
The science of politics is the one science that is deposited by the streams of history, like the grains of gold in the sand of a river; and the knowledge of the past, the record of truths revealed by experience, is eminently practical, as an instrument of action and a power that goes to making the future.
I don’t care if it’s a white millionaire kid from Oxfordshire who comes to my show, buys my record, supports me and rates me. It’s cool.
My record as a pro-life governor is not in dispute. I am completely pro-life, and I believe that we should have a culture of life. It’s informed by my faith from beginning to end. And this not just as it related to unborn babies – I did it at the end of life issues as well. This is something that goes way beyond politics.
You know, we opened a record number of stores last year.
There’s a whole bunch of unfinished stuff. Then I’ve got books of lyrics. I find it frustrating to finish a song and not be able to record it… so I don’t write a million songs.
Observe, record, tabulate, communicate. Use your five senses. Learn to see, learn to hear, learn to feel, learn to smell, and know that by practice alone you can become expert.
I think that’s what happened to the record business when ‘Napster’ came around. The industry rejected what was happening instead of accepting it as change.
I’ve never seen America as being one place, but I think the record industry people I’ve spoken to – although they will acknowledge that the cities are completely different from each other – I think they still handle it as being one territory.
I have been fortunate enough to record several singles and a whole album with Chet Atkins.
Half the time I feel like I’m appealing to the downer freaks out there. We start to play one downer record after another until I begin to get down myself. Give me something from 1960 or something; let me get up again. The music of today is for downer freaks, and I’m an upper.
What my voting record reflects is constantly looking to improve the amount of resources we having going into research, development, and prototypes we have going into renewable energy sources.
There is no more difficult art to acquire than the art of observation, and for some men it is quite as difficult to record an observation in brief and plain language.
People think when you get a record deal all your problems will go away. We know that the bigger we get, the more problems we’ll have. I guess Puff Daddy was somewhat – what’s the word? – prophetic in that respect.
I think anytime any record is compared to Tiger, it’s always going to be good.
Just having the pain of being alive without anything else, whether it’s good or bad. There’s a lot of serious songs on the record, you know. That song is just about feeling like a fish out of water, feeling like you don’t belong on the planet sometimes.
Think how weird profit margins are: We’ve got high unemployment and financial crises – and world record profit margins. People think the American market is very cheap. We don’t. The market quite incorrectly gives full credit to today’s earnings.
I thought my Beatles LPs sounded pretty good on a record player, but that was before I had heard a CD.
Examine the history of China for 2,000 years back, and then compare it with the Western history of fifty years! Does the government of these foreign countries present such a record of generosity, benevolence, loyalty, and honesty as ours?
The human face is the organic seat of beauty. It is the register of value in development, a record of Experience, whose legitimate office is to perfect the life, a legible language to those who will study it, of the majestic mistress, the soul.
Old age is just a record of one’s whole life.
It has never been my object to record my dreams, just the determination to realize them.
Looking forward, it might prove constructive to examine the true historical record of an issue prior to assuming the worst of anyone’s motive and deconstructing and questioning anyone’s Democratic bona fides. After all, we liberals got feelings.
I grew up with ‘best-of’ cassettes. My first Smiths record was ‘Hatful Of Hollow,’ and I had hits albums by Elton John and The Cars.
Records used to be documents, but now record companies want product.
I’d like to do my first record I ever made, A Church, a Courtroom, and Then Goodbye.
The record labels used to spend money on advertising, and social media has replaced that entirely – it’s putting magazines out of business. It’s put big companies into completely reinventing their strategies.
I was two and a half and my folks would put it on the record player and I would run around the house screaming, but I haven’t been that hip since.
Flawed Design’ is a song on the record and it explores why people feel a need to present themselves maybe not necessarily as what they actually are. It seems like in society, a lot of people want to be or try to be perfect.
I remember opening up my first vinyl and seeing the incredible artwork it had. There’s nothing like it. You also get that true gritty sound on vinyl that really makes a rock record sound great, which CDs can never achieve.
I have made that one of my policies never to play anything that I’ve already put on record.
I won’t say I’m not fascinated by the way advertising works. I like the sleekness. But a picture in advertising doesn’t last too long. They have to work for 30 seconds. And I’d like to reach at least two minutes. This is my goal: to break that two-minute record.
I’m not interested in gigs unless I really want to do them. I walked away from music in 1997, and then there was a greatest hits in 2002. Thank God, it didn’t do too well because the record company wouldn’t promote it.
I mean people just have a way of – y’know they’ll review your record in two sentences and put you in this little stupid box that you don’t want to be in.
I love to deer hunt and fish and drive down the back roads in my truck. All those things basically equal freedom to me – and not having to return that message or call from my record company or management. At some point, I need to recharge.
I grew up with vinyl records and remember the pleasure and the kind of buzz that I got from buying a beautiful vinyl record with the sleeve and the lyrics – all that kind of tactile experience that you could get from an old vinyl record.
Johnny Mercer started Capitol Records, and he brought in Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Nat King Cole. He just let them sing whatever they wanted, and it became the best record company in America.
It’s easy listening to a record, but a live performance is so personal and real.
I can never look at anything I do subjectively – whether it’s a Stone Sour record or a Slipknot record, I can never really have my own opinion of it, ‘cos in my opinion it’s all crap.
I have done six films with the Bhatt camp and I know that they are good at marketing, packaging the film and they are very good with music, a track record that they have proven since 25 years.
I think Bridge Over Troubled Water was a very good song. Artie sang it beautifully. The Boxer was a really nice record. But I don’t think I’ve written any great songs.
I had to get out of my record deal that I signed with my previous band and get a full solo record deal going so, with all of the paperwork that, that entails it did take a while.
I haven’t had a big hit record in America since 1987.
People don’t appreciate music any more. They don’t adore it. They don’t buy vinyl and just love it. They love their laptops like their best friend, but they don’t love a record for its sound quality and its artwork.
Every 15, 20, 25 years, a new rock and roll record needs to come out and a new rock and roll band needs to come out.
Blast my record out the windows of your Honda Accord. And if anyone gives you grief, you look them right in the eye and tell them Rick Ross told you wealth begins in the heart.
Some guys record an album with songs that are filler. I recorded this album like it was my last.
Water doesn’t hurt a vinyl record. Put it into a dishwasher and you’re fine.
I’ve given up on trying to explain myself, or trying to set the record straight, or trying to get people to understand what I’m really like as a man, outside of my acting, outside of my job.
Everything on this record is what I really wanted to say, and I’m back to being the poet I always thought I was.
And so while the great ones depart to their dinner, the secretary stays, growing thinner and thinner, racking his brain to record and report what he thinks that they think that they ought to have thought.
My mom had early rap records, like Jimmy Spicer. In the middle of the records was a turntable and a receiver – I used to scratch records on it – and on top was a reel-to-reel. In front of that wall were more stacks of records. It was either Mom’s record or Pop’s record, and they had their names on each and every one.
There’s no question that a vinyl record is a lot nicer than a CD. It’s nicer to hold in your hands, you can do more with it.
Simon Le Bon
I did frequently refer to my war record in World War II, but not in any flamboyant way.
I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experience behind him.
For the longest time, you just sound like a broken record, but you have to be consistent when teaching kids.
I’m sure I’ll go back again and record in the digital process.
Iran has a dismal record on human rights.
What I will say is that there is no governing body in strongman. There’s no federation. There’s no group of people or person that overlooks the sport, or says that this is a world record, or ‘we’ll count this as a world record.’
I would have loved to record with Paul McCartney on some of his early solo recordings, wonderful music. Playing some lovely organ, perhaps. I would have loved to record with John Lennon. He was a dear friend. I had lunch with him just two days before he died.
I thought I’d do everything on four-track, and then I’ll record every instrument myself in a studio, and then I’ll have a solo album released by spring.
I used to be with a publishing house called Roosevelt Music. A gentleman there told me he had seen Peggy Lee perform Fever in Las Vegas and I found out later she wanted to record it.
If something doesn’t work, you have to admit it. Always try to find what’s going right and what’s going wrong with your music. If you can, pool your resources and record yourself; do that frequently.
For the record, I believe in God, but I do not believe in religion, period.
I don’t, for the record, have a Tweety Bird fetish.
Hardly a name in profane history is more august than his. Hardly another character in the world’s record has made so little of its opportunities. His discovery was a blunder; his blunder was a new world; the New World is his monument.
I think its disgraceful to align that first Led Zeppelin record with heavy metal because its far, far better, but you know what Im saying: It started that genre.
Often, a serial killer has no felony record.
I believe that the great painters with their intellect as master have attempted to force this unwilling medium of paint and canvas into a record of their emotions.
It has now been over 7 years since Congress last raised the minimum wage to its current level of $5.15 per hour. Since that last increase, Congress’s failure to adjust the wage for inflation has reduced the purchasing power of the minimum wage to record low levels.
I developed the Clock Theory to help me time records; you know, spin the record back two revolutions or whatever and then play the break, spin the other one back two, play, like that.
However, the radio and national media depend much more on the hype from a good record label, and from a ‘ buzz ‘ about a band, then from just one or two good shows. There are a lot of artists that have a ton of good press going for them, and still do not make it big in the US.
We stuck the record head so it kept on recording over and over on top of itself and played keyboard notes into it to create this ghost repetition melody.
I guess we decided to make a new record 3 years ago when Nancy was done scoring for Almost Famous.

History in its broadest aspect is a record of man’s migrations from one environment to another.
I didn’t want the record to be cold and I don’t think it’s cold at all. I felt it was very people oriented.
Memory is a great artist. For every man and for every woman it makes the recollection of his or her life a work of art and an unfaithful record.
I’m definitely gonna do another solo record at some point. ‘Flamingo’ wasn’t just me dipping my toes in the water. I really loved it. It was successful, and that helps, but I love those songs, and I miss singing them.
I do not want history to record me as someone who has bequeathed to his nation the institution of despotism.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Right now we’re in the process of writing new material for a new record.
The first time I heard a Billie Holiday record, I thought, ‘What’s so great about Billie Holiday?’
I did a record with a producer, and the good producers eat up the budget, so I didn’t have any budget left to produce this record. I had to produce it myself.
Normally when we go in and write the songs we write, we think about doing a cover, but never a covers record. That would be, for us, a concept. We don’t want to have a concept!
I have a studio in a barn at home – we rehearse there, we film there and we record there. It’s fun to hang out with my guys and see what comes out next.
But to make a holiday record that involves favorite American songs and then also get to sing about Jesus birth, it just seemed like a real easy, subtle way to combine a couple of things that I love.
‘Reign’ is probably the oldest one on the record. I wrote that when I was 19. ‘The Dead They Don’t Come Back,’ which is the last song on the album, I wrote when I was 20, and ‘Harlem River’ I just wrote last year. It spans from 2007 to 2012.
I’m not only a DJ. I run my own record label and I work out of my own productions.
The pen is an instrument of discovery rather than just a recording implement. If you write a letter of resignation or something with an agenda, you’re simply using a pen to record what you have thought out.
When we finished the tour we had been writing together for a year. We moved forward from there and have just now finished our record. We’re having a new record out in the Spring.
My record shows that I have put my country first, and I follow the philosophy and traditions of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan.
The bottom line is a record of ideas. The bottom line is a plan for how to get this country back on track. It’s not about attendance – it’s about goals and opportunity to move this nation forward.
To get to record and to do things with the legends, and with the people that are your musical heroes, that’s the biggest honor as an artist.
My father was the role model I looked up to. My dad was an entertainer, too. I patterned my life after him. He wanted me to do better than he did. He never sold a record in his life, but to me, he was still a rock star.
Still, records are documents of a period of time. Most records are documents of two or three years, and I just approached it as a record I was doing over a 20-year period of time.
T Bone Burnett
I always try to do better than I have before, so I think it would be good to break the world record.
President George W. Bush’s aggressive war on Islamic terrorism produced a 100 percent perfect track record of keeping the United States safe from another attack. The result has been increased security for the American people, who, in turn, have become complacent about the true nature of the threat.
Your genome sequence will become a vital part of your medical record, thereby providing critical information about how to optimize your wellness.
My songs always sound a lot better in person than they do on the record.
Often I hear people say they do not have time to read. That’s absolute nonsense. In the one year during which I kept that kind of record, I read twenty-five books while waiting for people. In offices, applying for jobs, waiting to see a dentist, waiting in a restaurant for friends, many such places.
Vinyl is the real deal. I’ve always felt like, until you buy the vinyl record, you don’t really own the album. And it’s not just me or a little pet thing or some kind of retro romantic thing from the past. It is still alive.
Every record I do is a learning process for how I want to do the next one.
I was always looking to record, but how much I actually pursued it was another thing. The major labels weren’t that interested in me, and the smaller labels didn’t have any money to do anything.
The bottom-line message of history is that if you’re doubling and tripling your money in record time, you’re also more likely to lose it all.
I’ve always said winning’s the great deodorant, and conversely, when you have a bad record, everything stinks, and everything starts to unravel, and everything falls apart.
I struggled with depression when I was in high school, and I remember thinking that if I got a record deal and got a hit song, that it would solve all those problems for me.
There’s a Nina Simone record that I love, ‘Live at Vine Street,’ and she sings flat on it. I can imagine she might’ve told the record label, ‘Oh, God, you’re not releasing that!’ But I’m glad they did.
I didn’t record any additional dialogue for this CD, they are excerpts pulled from existing episodes.
Visible Faith is an expression of my Christian faith which must be visible to be real! I gave the name to the collection of musicians who worked with me on the record.
At midnight every night, I would methodically leave the house for a couple hours’ walk, come back in, and record. And then the sun came up. If I had done something good, then I’d be happy and go to sleep.
Being in a band is very much like a startup. You start in a garage. You hope to get interest from investors, like a major record label.
We’ve gone further on this album, where we have a Big Band song, kind of a Sinatra-type song; we have a couple songs that have electronic music on them. We’ve got a couple rock songs, maybe a little heavier than what we’ve done. So the title ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ really covers the breadth of the record.
There is no plausible theory under which the record of the Pentagon Papers can be interpreted as relating to the national defense.
The Who on record were dynamic. Roger Daltrey’s delivery allowed vulnerability without weakness; doubt and confusion, but no plea for sympathy.
You’re only as good as your last record.
I’m really lucky that my record companies have been patient with me and leave me alone and give me the time to make it right in my mind.
People weren’t buying as many records. My record company did not want me. I went through three record companies, went on tour at the wrong time. It destroyed me.
Well, especially now I come to realize – and then – I would do my schooling which was three hours with a tutor and right after that I would go to the recording studio and record, and I’d record for hours and hours until it’s time to go to sleep.
I don’t know if six picks in a draft is a record, it’s not the kind of thing I would look at, but it’s unusual.
Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.
Without Metallica, I wouldn’t be doing what I am doing. I have every Metallica record, of course, and I would spend hours on drums in my parents’ basement with the stereo behind me, cranking those records and learning Lars’ drum beats, beat by beat.
I did not want to make the widow record. I still haven’t made the widow record.
When Kenny first came to me, I think he was thinking of making a nice little folk record, but in my opinion, folk music had come to an end and I felt he needed to go to the next step, the next generation.
I am building an archive. I don’t need for anyone to tell me that I matter. I am just going to record it for myself.
Dr. Rice’s record on Iraq gives me great concern. In her public statements she clearly overstated and exaggerated the intelligence concerning Iraq before the war in order to support the President’s decision to initiate military action against Iraq.
When it comes down to the music, it’s just you and the microphone. It’s not you and the record execs.
You choose to be happy, and in life we have as many good days as bad days. I try to find and record those songs that pull you through the bad days, and keep you believing that the good days are just around the corner.
I have been skiing since I was in school, but I’m not great. I am never going to break an Olympic record, I just want to go down the hills, on red or blue runs, but not… black.
You can de-select the songs that you don’t want to have on the record, but I hope we always put something out that has a lot of songs that the majority of people will love.
I’ve been wanting to sing for a long time. I’ve been singing all my life, and I’ve tried different record companies, but it seemed like – it was such a struggle and so hard to get out there. So, I said, ‘I’m gonna go on American Idol and see how far it takes me.’
When a record company looks at me I’m very hard to market, I don’t really fit anywhere, It’s hard to get me on the air, and I’m hard to demography, but! because of that I’m not subject to trends like you pointed out.
With Nine Inch Nails, it’s all Trent Reznor. So when we get a new record from Nine Inch Nails, it depends on what side of the bed Trent’s waking up on and what he’s been eating lately and what he’s been into. Because he’s preparing the whole meal.
I was trying to do the same thing that I always do which is make an interesting record.
This above all makes history useful and desirable; it unfolds before our eyes a glorious record of exemplary actions.
It’s my first record since my son is old enough to understand and I can’t even show it to him. Yes, it’s affected me, probably in the opposite of how anyone would have thought.
I hold the record now with Dixie Dean for being the only Everton player to score three Merseyside derby goals at Anfield. I still hope to better it. Things like that, the fans never forget.
Timothy F. Cahill
I think that’s the problem in a lot of music. We’ve got these record labels.
Some musicians make and record music; other musicians play in a band… I just make and record music, and I don’t feel a part of anything in any music business.
My ideal fight would be against the smallest guy with the most atrocious record in the largest venue for the most insane paycheck. I love easy fights.
The thought of someone spending $20 to come and see me and saying, ‘Oh, I prefer the record and she’s completely shattered the illusion’ really upsets me. It’s such a big deal that people come give me their time.
It was so exciting to go to the record shop and buy a piece of vinyl and hold it, read the liner notes, look at the pictures. Even the smell of the vinyl.
No stream rises higher than its source. What ever man might build could never express or reflect more than he was. He could record neither more nor less than he had learned of life when the buildings were built.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The Rockwell magazine cover was more a part of the American reality than a record of it.
Arthur C. Danto
When you have the biggest record in the country, everybody wants you; everybody needs you, and they need you now.
Biden’s first failed run for the presidency was ended by his dishonesty over his academic record and his plagiarism, including the biography and speeches of British Labor politician Neil Kinnock.
You’d be surprised. Drummers ape each other. The way every rock n’ roll record sounds like something else but not all together. Everything other drummers play, if you’re playing drums, they all hear.
What can I say? I’m just a relevant dude. It’s just natural. My hunger’s still there. I still keep my ear to the streets. I record every song like it’s my last. I just love music. I’m blessed.
Man is not logical and his intellectual history is a record of mental reserves and compromises. He hangs on to what he can in his old beliefs even when he is compelled to surrender their logical basis.
I still hold on to the idea that a record can really change the way I feel.
When it all started, record companies – and there were many of them, and this was a good thing – were run by people who loved records, people like Ahmet Ertegun, who ran Atlantic Records, who were record collectors. They got in it because they loved music.
I will never forget the pleasure and instruction I derived from working with a true master of his art, such as Edward G. Robinson was – and is. Surely his record for versatility, studied characterization – ranging from modern colloquial to the classics – and artistic integrity is unsurpassed.
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.
I had pretty much raised my kids and my first wife and I were divorced, so I began, in earnest, to start my musical career again. Going for the big record deal and all of that.
Jimmy Carl Black
Jiu jitsu is a great art for self-defense. But jiu jitsu alone won’t get you to a world championship in the UFC or even a winning record sometimes.
B. J. Penn
I felt so relaxed. It just felt very easy, and that’s why it surprised me that I had broken my world record.
I go through a thousand songs to find ten for a new record.
I don’t have to be working on an album to record a song.
There are too many leaders anointed because they have a public voice – television, radio, or record, or whatever. That even includes myself. In the past, I’d say, ‘Don’t anoint me when you can anoint yourself.’
In a record time of five-and-a-half months, we completed the prestigious Pattiseema irrigation project, linking two major rivers in the state.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
My whole life I saw everybody else get shine, I saw everybody else get money, everybody else wanted to rap. I saw them getting record deals and stuff like that. And everytime I saw that it was damn, I can’t wait until my time.
Every time we get days off, we try to go home and record five or six songs.
I have started to record some demos so hopefully in the near future I can play live.
By the time I got to record my first album, I was 26, I didn’t need pen or paper – my memory had been trained just to listen to a song, think of the words, and lay them to tape.
Look at music for what it’s worth around the world and not just America. In other countries, people are still buying CDs and going to record stores. But in America, it’s all about digital. The game is breaking down. But, look at me, you need to know how to play the game the right way.
‘If I Can Dream’ is my all-time favorite Elvis song. It was a big record, but not as big as it could have been. It was one of those records where you’d think it sold 10 billion copies, but it didn’t.
When the second record came out, they started calling it The Band. I voted to call it The Crackers. I’m no fool.
I’ve never really been able to open up and record around people.
I realized at one point that David and I had not made a record together in almost 26 years and I thought that that was absurd because, first of all it had gone so fast, I didn’t really realize, neither did David, that it had been that long.
But when I record my next studio album, of course I’ll do the lead vocals.
It’s really much more than the plastic of album covers and record sales and dollars and cents. Music is just everybody’s mother. Music is the power of you.
And you have a record company behind it, this is a key too, you need people to fight for your records, at least a little bit. So if you have a great song, it’s catchy, and you’ve got a little bit of help, I think that’s all you need. But there hasn’t been that in music.
You have to keep the recording process open. If you make too many decisions before you go in, you can lose out on those serendipitous moments that can really make a record, that I think are always required in the making of a really good record.
We’re probably doing better business than we thought we would do especially considering the disappointing way the record company has handled the album.
Veterans have had a long record of leaning towards the Republican Party. I think that’s changing. I think that President Obama has the strongest record with veterans among any president in my lifetime.
I don’t have much of a problem with interruptions. I keep a detailed record of paint and materials as a work on each painting. I can restart exactly where I left off.
To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things.
It’s when someone has an agenda of their own for the record that it doesn’t work for me.
You could have a zillion Facebook followers. Those people don’t buy records. It’s about a hundred to one…Record companies, they don’t have any money, so they see social media as the free marketing… So… ‘Billy, light yourself on fire and stand upside down, and that’ll market the record.’
When I record something, I’ll take a drive and just listen.
I was really proud of the Three Days Grace record ‘One-X.’
I don’t like being told what to do, and I don’t need to be told what my record should sound like.
Hank Williams III
The world is so caught up in the ‘American Idol’ idealistic sort of tendency in regards to just thinking that this whole thing is what everybody wants, but it doesn’t help you make a better record.
Any time you have any type of record in any record book, especially with the Lakers, it is pretty special.
My ace in the hole as a human being used to be my capacity for remembering birthdays. I worked at it. Whenever I made a new friend, I made a point of finding out his or her birthday early on, and I would record it in my Filofax calendar.
I always knew I’d be in music in some sort of capacity. I didn’t know if I’d be successful at it, but I knew I’d be doing something in it. Maybe get a job in a record store. Maybe even play in a band. I never got into this to be a star.
I put a list together. It was like: Get health insurance, get a car, get a bigger apartment, travel more, get a record deal, get a publishing deal, sell 10,000 units, be a part of a No. 1 album, make a million dollars. I got to check off 90 percent of the stuff last year. I hit some serious landmarks in 2015.
I wanted to make a record that would transcend the bad, hard feelings of a love relationship not working out, to make something that metabolized it into something useful and good.
Of course I am tough, but I am smart, too. I’m more smart than tough. People watching my record and say that this guy is tough. This is not about tough; this is about mind. You think when you fight. This is about everything.
I thought I’d be wasting my time to go to commercial record companies and make demos for them, because don’t forget, I was doing what I was doing and nobody understood what I was doing.
And it took me about 11 years to get a record deal, and I just had to work around and come to terms with the fact that what I was doing was going to be different, and I just had to wait until somebody was ready to jump on the bandwagon.
Lee Ann Womack
If you record the sound of bacon in a frying pan and play it back, it sounds like the pops and cracks on an old 33 1/3 recording. Almost exactly like that. You could substitute it for that sound.
I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch.
Everything I record, I just try to sound like me and come up with songs that suit what I do, and then just go for it.
B. B. King
No one’s promised anything. You could have the biggest record on radio and sell no records.
We can be proud of our record as an international beacon of liberty. From fostering democracies in Eastern Europe to the stabilization of Iraq and Afghanistan, we have been true to that calling and helped spread freedom to oppressed peoples everywhere.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
With me, I record so much that I just get in the zone.
All record companies want big-selling records, and my music is a little too raw for commercial success.
J. J. Cale
We just kept going down the road, we kept trying to make the next record, the right choices to get there.
My professional life has been a constant record of disillusion, and many things that seem wonderful to most men are the every-day commonplaces of my business.
I recorded a song called, I Fall to Pieces, and I was in a car wreck. Now I’m worried because I have a brand-new record, and it’s called Crazy!
I am a great believer that you should record more than you need and then use the absolute best.
South Africa had a long record of studies in prehistory, going back to the end of the last century.
I used to not really know any other people when I was young that wanted to play music – that’s why I learned everything myself. As a result, you kind of naturally become an engineer of sorts, because you’ve got to learn how to record everything.
Any successful nominee should possess both the temperament to interpret the law and the wisdom to do so fairly. The next Supreme Court Justice should have a record of protecting individual rights and a strong willingness to put aside any political agenda.
I wish I could say I had this master plan for a career, but I always thought acting was something I’d just do until I had a hit record.
I’m one of the few that comes from this vantage point: I never tried to get a record deal.
I really didn’t have any plans to record prior to doing My Own Best Enemy.
I was forced to be an artist and a CEO from the beginning, so I was forced to be like a businessman because when I was trying to get a record deal, it was so hard to get a record deal on my own that it was either give up or create my own company.
You have to create a track record of breaking your own mold, or at least other people’s idea of that mold.
I see myself as the buffer between the band and the record company.
I enjoy those physical battles and I’ve been on record saying Virgil van Dijk is the best defender in the world.
I’ve been around for such a long time. My first hit record was over 20 years ago and the people who bought my records then are married now and they probably still play these records and their children like them.
Though just biographical record will touch the failings of the good and the eminent with tenderness.
There’s plenty of people who can sing OK that make terrific records, and I love them from afar. But when I make a record, I need great voices. That’s always my mandate.
I think if we go back and check our record, the Negro has proven beyond a doubt that we have been more than patient in seeking our rights as American citizens.
When the people’s representatives have to go on record and vote, it transforms our country. It is a full recognition that we are in a state of war.
My record of 13 goals in the World Cup finals still stands.
Though, since the first record, I’ve dramatically changed my expectations for our records.
I grew up at the very tail end of the vinyl era, and at the time, I remember, we couldn’t wait for CD to come along because vinyl was so frustrating. You would buy the record, take it home, and it would have a scratch, and you would have to take it back again.
At the end of the day I have to please myself. And I’ve made a record to please myself.
For the record: Quantum mechanics does not deny the existence of objective reality. Nor does it imply that mere thoughts can change external events. Effects still require causes, so if you want to change the universe, you need to act on it.
Lawrence M. Krauss
With The Key, it was, I had gone through a divorce and losing my father, and just kinda really reminiscing about how much I loved the traditional side of country music, so I made a record that was really traditional from start to finish.
Interested listeners have only to hear the recording to find out if those guys, who go to such pains to undervalue my work, are right. All people have to do is listen to realize it is a beautiful record.
I believe the record I was allowed to help establish by the side of the president was important.
We had a heroic attitude to artistic freedom, and we thought normal contracts were a bit vulgar – somehow not punk. But that was the whole point – we weren’t a regular record label.
I mean it shouldn’t hang you up emotionally if your record fails.
Every college coach I talk to won’t say it on record, but everyone’s thinking, ‘Should I go to the league?’ Because you don’t have the same requirements. It’s different. The hours are different.
Just want to set the record straight. I’m single and I’m not going to get married!
But as you said, there are going to be those that have no record and cannot be detected in that capacity so that is why you have to have other layers of security.
If you look at a record under a microscope, the high frequencies are short jagged edges… and the low frequencies are long swinging ones are deep bass sounds. When it cut it at half speed, you’re getting more of those on the record.
I’m not gone remix a record I don’t got no love for.
I don’t care if people like Trump or hate him, if they voted for him or not; people just want to have a good time. They don’t want to hear about immigration or whatever on a record or at a show.
I love live performance and have huge admiration for people who can really do it. It’s the same with music: I’ll play a record and think that I’m not really into country or ragga. But, if it’s live and the musicians are good, I’ll listen to pretty much anything.
If we didn’t get the record, we didn’t exist.
Once a popular Alaska governor with a modest record of accomplishment, Palin could conceivably revive her reputation in this era of short memories. But it’s hard to imagine her name atop the GOP ballot in 2016, when a cast of heavyweights who sat out 2012 will be vying for the nomination.
The only decent daily paper of record in France is the online ‘Mediapart,’ which exposes graft and corruption in high places and is feared by the establishment.
George Bush, Dick Cheney, every one of the speakers praised John Kerry’s war record. No one said he was unfit. They said he has terrible judgment, and that’s his record as a senator. Nobody questioned his military record.
Peter T. King
It’s weird. Prior to having my first record, Corey Hart was just my name.
But now it’s kind of a given that a 15-year-old would have a record deal and sell a quarter of a million records. No one’s expecting her to answer any deep theological questions. And I’ll tell you, I was asked some deep theological questions from the git-go.
We were using the record as a tool to invest money into real estate all through the South, because we were living in an era where the South was changing.
The ‘Ponyboy’ single is coming out next because it’s the other bit of the pole of the record. Sort of everything I’m interested in happens on that axis – everything I’m interested in this material happens on that axis, and so I was really excited to tour ‘It’s Okay to Cry’ and ‘Ponyboy.’
It has been a fantastic journey. I have gone to five Games, broke the Olympics record in 2004 in Athens and won a gold medal as well in Beijing. I have had a good run at the Olympics.
For the record, I don’t worship the devil. I just hate religion.
Tyler, The Creator
First of all, you needed a budget to do the video. The record companies would pick and choose who got videos.
Making every record is a process full of tough times.
I know the history of the record business so well because I followed Billie Holiday into the record studios. It was so primitive compared to the sophisticated business today.
The bottom line is music, for me, is an exhaust port for life, and if I have a chaotic year, then I’m gonna write a chaotic record, and that’s what happened with ‘Ziltoid,’ with ‘Z2.’
The tune ‘All My Friends,’ we recorded because our friend who wrote the song, Scott Boyer, passed way, and Gregg Allman had passed and he had recorded the song on his first solo record.
I think that most of my romance comes out in my music. And if you look at my track record of three ex-wives, maybe there’s something to that.
I grew up in Minnesota, where we treasure our tradition of civic engagement – and our record of having the nation’s highest voter participation.
Paris Hilton, that’s very interesting what she did. I’ve never done that. I haven’t really sort of ever got into that. As time passes, maybe I should record it and put it in a vault so that when I get a little old don’t have the energy I can remember how life used to be.
I think there’s a lot of naivete and hubris within our mix of personalities. That’s probably our worst crime. I keep wondering what a ‘mature’ record means.
I spend a lot of time working as a painter and in my studio I go from upstairs where I paint to downstairs where I play and record, so I get this thing crossing over.
Everybody who sings with me has to sing ranchero. Roberto Carlos had to sing ranchero, Vikki Carr had to record ranchero. Celia Cruz came in with a mariachi.
I started singing when I was 18 and landed my first record deal with RCA when I was 26 after a lot of grafting singing in pubs and clubs.
I suppose my Iranian identity is one of the driving forces for being a writer: I want to set the record straight about who I really am.
If we just sit and exist, and understand that, I think it will be helpful in a world that seems like a record that’s going faster and faster, we’re spinning off the edge of the universe.
I really don’t have any plan to leave Facebook. I put it so many times on the record, and I just don’t get what to do to say it as clear as possible: I’m staying in Facebook; I really love my job.
And as – funny enough, it actually became – so I’ve always wanted to be a Guinness world record holder. And believe it or not, before I made this there was not a category for world’s largest Nerf gun, but there is now.
I was really amazed when I started hearing ‘Songbird’ on the radio. I couldn’t believe that the record company promotion department had actually convinced radio music directors to play it -because there wasn’t anything like it on the radio at the time.
When somebody turned me on to a Coltrane record around seventh grade, I took up saxophone.
Every record that you do man, is sooo different in every way.
Releasing a record is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the promotion of the product, but you have to play the game if you are to have a chance of competing in the market place.
History does not record in its annals any lasting domination exercised by one people over another, of different race, of diverse usages and customs, of opposite and divergent ideals. One of the two had to yield and succumb.
The record business has been so unpleasant and so bad for so long.
Looking back on the production of ‘Nevermind,’ I’m embarrassed by it now. It’s closer to a Motley Crue record than it is a punk rock record.
Being yourself is one of the hardest things because it’s scary. You always wonder whether you’ll be accepted for who you really are. I decided to call my record ‘Inside Out’ because that’s my motto about life. I don’t think you ever succeed at trying to be anyone else but who you truly are.
We gave up on the idea of trying to make the record a good representation of the live performance.
I know the lead singer of System of a Down, and I record violin tracks with him.
The record business is dangerous to the health of bands and individuals, which is something I’m just now learning. But it’s not dangerous in any of the ways people think; it’s not that they try to make you compromise your art. That’s not the problem.
T Bone Burnett
You’re always in a different headspace when you make each record, so hopefully they’re all different. You just pick up things that you wish you hadn’t done on the first one.
Even the best guys in the sport have losses on their record, and Myles Jury, I just feel like he’s coming up into that reality check with me.
The ‘Daryl’s House’ thing has made me into a live musician even more than I ever was, and even in the way I record.
Sometimes before we make a record I go back and listen to a few. It’s equally humbling and uplifting.
Is the Iranian record of intervention and terror worse than that of the U.S.?
I am very proud of The Saints and I’m very glad that I’ve been associated with them all these years, but the next record is the best record… has to be the philosophy for any band that remains even halfway decent or vibrant, and that is kind of where my head’s at.
My brothers and I had a gospel quartet, and that was the only music people listened to. But I was already gravitating towards songs by Sam Cooke, and then one day I put on a Jackie Wilson record, and baby, I was thrown right out of the house.
I think prime ministers, I actually think Cabinet ministers should be subject to intense scrutiny, I think that’s in the public interest, even if some of the allegations made aren’t right and so on, and they have to correct the record, it doesn’t matter.
But what you realise after you’ve been in the business for a while is that people develop opinions about you that don’t have anything to do with your music, they like or dislike you for a million reasons, they like or dislike you for your last record.
I became Iggy because I had a sadistic boss at a record store. I’d been in a band called the Iguanas. And when this boss wanted to embarrass and demean me, he’d say, ‘Iggy, get me a coffee, light.’
You gotta stick your neck out and put out a record that isn’t safe… that’s the Green Day way!
It has been extraordinary, wonderful, I’ve been three feet off the ground since I made that first record.
In my off-time, I do record. Once in a while, I’ll just go into the studio if there’s a really good song that I have in my head and want to do. I think, as artists, you’re constantly in creative motion. If I stopped writing songs, then that’s a part of me that would stop in my life, and I need constant motion.
If I’d just been interested in record sales, I would have taken one of the deals I was offered after ‘Soapstar Superstar,’ made a quick covers album and probably had some success for five minutes. I decided that wasn’t for me.
Viacom’s results for the first quarter put the company on a fast track for another record year in 2004.
I would like to say this for the record: that I am not trying to lose weight or gain weight. I am just trying to be the best version of myself, and that’s really important.
When I wrote ‘Marvin Gaye,’ my whole intention was to make a record that people would put on a record player… and just instantly make out with each other.
I don’t like Bush. I don’t trust him. I don’t like his record. He’s stupid. He’s lazy.
Puffy’s contribution to hip-hop culture was the remix. He offered us the music that his mom played in front of him, with newer drums and younger artists. That worked, and will consistently be there. The remix comes right after the original record, that’s something Puffy did to influence the culture.
The closest I ever came to getting married was just before I started singing. In fact, my first record saved my neck.
I’ve woken up from dreams and the whole song is there. I’m listening to it in my dreams. I consciously have to wake myself up and get a tape recorder because I hear it like a record.
What my job is, is to get on with getting the process of democratic politics, back on the road, entrenching the peace settlement, and I ask you to judge me on my record.
We must wait for the official history of the Chinese Revolution to record in greater detail the invaluable work of our Japanese friends.
I was just glad to meet somebody outside of my group of small town friends who was into music. Somebody else who had aspirations to do something more than sing at a record hop.
This album, ‘ununiform,’ I didn’t even have to record it if I didn’t want to.
In the very beginning, we went on tours with Rammstein in really small clubs. We didn’t even have a record out. We played in restaurants and pubs in the south of Germany.
As far as my solo record, I don’t want a gold record or anything, I’m happy to be small and to have the people appreciate the music who really like me for being me.
Yes it was we, are a few years back parted from our record company and took the album that we were making with them and released it independently in the United States had a number one Independent debut in the United States.
