High Fidelity (2000)

This is surely the quintessential depiction of the North American record store, with pugnacious and pedantic music geek Barry (Jack Black) and miserable, romantic audiophile Rob (John Cusack).

(500) Days of Summer (2009)

Ringo Starr plays an unexpectedly central role in the relationship between Summer (Zooey Deschanel) and Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). At first, the Beatle is a playful discussion point during some post-coital record-shopping, as their bond falters, the drummer becomes a grinding point of contention.

This is Spinal Tap (1984)

Of the many hilarious moments that this mockumentary has given us, it’s easy to forget Spinal Tap’s Smell the Glove LP signing session, for which only two people turn up – one, a bespectacled man who goads them into signing a different album (of assorted train noises), and another who starts an argument because their marker pen won’t show up on the black cover sleeve (“Tilt it towards the light!”).

  1. Record Store Day “Canada”

    WOW!!! What a success last Saturday in Toronto.
    H.M.V., Kops Records and Sonic Boom were crowded beyond belief. Other record stores across Toronto had the same results.

    Many people in their 20’s, both boys and girls, buying vinyl. AWESOME!!!!

    10″ LP Cassandra Wilson/Billie Holiday best find.
    Also bought the Van Halen “Live in Tokyo Dome”
    box set.

    Thank you all and keep spinning the vinyl.

    Vinyl-James
