What was the last single you purchased on CD.
I'm not talking about downloads. . Or albums.

When was the last time you bought a CD single and what was it?

Or can you even remember?

Mine was- Kelly Clarkson-Behind These Hazel Eyes.

Ego - The Saturdays
Bought it in January 2010. Since then I've never bought a CD single. I download all my singles or get them on the albums.

I used to buy them every week in the Nineties.

I don't think I have bought any this century due to technological advancements rendering them useless.

'Something New' - Girls Aloud (A month ago).

Before that I think it was 'Skyfall' by Adele.

Green Day - Wake Me Up When September Ends

How long ago was this song now? 2005? I don't usually go for singles anymore, but if I don't fancy the album, then downloads is the way to go for me now.

Silence by Delerium in 1999

I only bought it cos I'm a big fan of co-writer and vocalist Sarah McLachlan

The last one I bought was Catch You by Sophie Ellis-Bextor (a couple of days ago).

But the most recent in terms of release date was 30 Days by The Saturdays (about 6 months ago). Both the promo and regular versions.

I still buy loads of CD singles (probably about 40-50 a year). Most of those are old releases though. I'm only really interested in buying a CD single if it has a b-side, and most artists have stopped doing them nowadays. Or if I'm a big fan of an artist, I'll buy their promo singles on Ebay for the instrumentals. I'm not interested in remixes though.

Heavy Cross- Gossip. Thanks in part to the Dior adverts that never seem to end.

Cee-Lo Green - F**k/Forget You in October 2010. I'd stopped around the turn of that decade but bought this one on a whim as I couldn't decide if I liked the 'F**k' or 'Forget' version better.

Before then there was a bit of a silly era around 2008 when I'd primarily download pop/rock singles but buy dance CD singles, as I thought the higher bitrate of a CD compared to a download (1411kbs vs 128kbs) made a big difference! But after iTunes increased their bitrate the following year it didn't seem to make much difference anymore, plus I was running out of music shops/home storage space anyways.

I bought 'Perfect Day' - CIN CD single. I found it in a charity shop earlier this year.

I originally had it on cassette tape when it came out in 1997. I love that song.

Kylie - Better Than Today in 2010.

It's sad how CD singles are dying out!
I think it's having a big impact on the older artists too...

Pet Shop Boys - Memory of the Future. They both came today and I'm so happy that they are continuing to release them.

I love a CD single and have absolutely loads of them. It's a sad shame that they are dying out. The only other recent CD singles i've bought are Girls Alouds 'Something New', Adeles 'Skyfall', Pet Shop Boys 'Leaving' and Kylie's 'Flower'.

If they aren't released in the UK (which most international artists aren't these days) I just import them from Germany, including Robbies 'Different' which was a 5 track EP .

Every Saturday I would buy a cassette or cd single... I wouldn't care what it was.
Its kinda sad to see the cd single has died.
I used to love going into the music stores and looking at the 30 biggest selling Cds on display. Awwh, good times.

Downloads have taken the heart out of music slightly.

James Arthur - Impossible

I don't like the song but I have all the other winner singles so there's no point runining a collection of 10 years just because your favorate didn't win
