9:30 Coffee Break: Vinyl in Song

What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Earlier this morning, Jill and Steve were talking about the resurgence in vinyl sales over the past few years, and some recent reactions to that resurgence from a few different voices in the music business.

One major label spokesman recently told Rolling Stone that while he thinks vinyl's comeback is cool, it's such a tiny drop in the financial bucket that it's hardly going to "save" the music business. Elsewhere, Neil Young described the newfound love for vinyl little more than a passing "fashion statement."

Still, our love for vinyl here on The Morning Show is strong, and hardly a passing fad. For today's 9:30 Coffee Break, we thought we'd celebrate the beauty of the spinning black musical platter … with songs that make reference to records in some way, shape or form.

So, what songs mentioning records should we play for the 9:30 Coffee Break?
