    Default Where to buy or find a good selection of CD Singles?

    Where can I buy or find a good selection of CD Singles besides HMV? I've looked at Gramophone and Sembawang and they dun have any or even if they have, its limited.

    In case u're wondering why CD singles as they're more expensive:

    1. I wanna expand my singles collection. Got about 150 singles currently.
    2. Contains remix/live/acoustic/demo versions that are not avaliable in albums and sometimes, B-Sides.
    3. Different artwork.
    4. Kinda rare these days!

    Miss the days when stepping into any of the popular music stores as stated above having all the CD singles.

    Heck ... even small stores carried them .. and i could get all the various remixes without paying premium to buy the album ...

    Now - forced to buy the album that includes the tracks we don't like and also missing out on the various remixes

    Yeah it is a pity. Even MJ carries them last time.

    The problem is the cost these days. CD singles normally cost $10 and HMV sells them at $10-$15. To most people, it makes no sense to pay $10-$15 for a single when albums cost $17-$20 and $12 for SG version.

    Stores used to have a rack or 2 for singles but these days, they dun even carry a single copy. I remembered DaDa records used to have a massive rack of singles back in the old Funan days.

    Looks like it is 'Amazon here I come!'
