    Pearl Jam's "Spin the Black Circle" is all about good ol' vinyl.

    "18 with a bullet" by Pete Wingfield was definitely about records, tho I can't remember if it has the words you want in it.

    Harry Chapin had a song about a radio DJ, think it was called WORL? I'd be surprised if it didn't mention records.

    The Teresa Brewer song Music Music Music is about a Nickelodeon.

    Olivia Newton John song Please Mr. Please is about a song on a jukebox.

    Joan Jett's I love rock and roll is about playing the song on the "record machine".

    The crappy Sheryl Crow single "Soak Up the Sun," has a line about '45's:

    I'm gonna soak up the sun
    Got my 45 on
    So I can rock on

    Van Halen - Jump

    Oh can't you see me standing here,
    I've got my back against the record machine
    I ain't the worst that you've seen.
    Oh can't you see what I mean?



    Madonna - Music

    Hey Mr. DJ put a record on I wanna dance with my baby
    And when the music starts
    I never wanna stop, it's gonna drive me crazy

    "A Little Green Rosetta" by Frank Zappa, from "Joe's Garage Act III":

    [spoken]
    Now you see, some
    places in the Third
    World it might be
    difficult to dance to
    this because the
    kerosene record player
    is not a very efficient
    device...And a lot of
    times they run out of, uh...
    they run out of spunk
    right in the middle of
    the chorus...Causing
    the song to sound like
    this...

    [lurching, out-of-tune, winding down green rosetta]

    However we continue
    in spite of the fact that
    the fuel may be low on
    your record player. We
    suggest that in places
    in the Fourth World
    where things are really
    tough that you keep
    the record player
    going by rubbing two
    sticks together. And if
    all else fails... throw the
    record away...build
    your own green
    rosetta...try this
    recipe: We'll start with
    a lump of grass...the
    grass bone connected
    to the ankle bone...the
    knee bone connected
    to the wishbone...and
    then everybody moves
    to New York and goes
    to a party with
    Warren. Hey!
