"I want some new love songs," Gita complained to Sidney. "I'm tired of listening to the same old ones." Sidney suggested that they go to WhereHouse, a popular music store that sold new and used CDs at great prices. So they drove to the one on Huntington Ave.

Once inside the store, Sidney asked the clerk where the Greatest Hits section was. She pointed it out to him. Sidney and Gita walked to that section and started looking. There was a tiny section entitled "Love Songs." It contained only two CD sets. One was called "Love Songs of the ?0s." It contained original hits by original artists, such as Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney. "This is great," Sidney told Gita. "There are 36 songs, and most of them are classics."

Then Sidney looked at the other CD set. It was entitled "Sixty of the World's Favorite Love Songs." While the first set contained 36 songs and cost $16.99, this set contained 60 songs and cost only $11.99. "Boy, this is a good deal," Sidney told Gita. Knowing that a good deal wasn't always a good deal, Sidney read the small print on the side of the package: "This album contains some tracks that are re-recorded. All single artist tracks are performed by the original artist. Tracks featuring groups were re-recorded using as many of the original group members as possible."

Bộ dĩa CD giá mặc cả (1)

"EM muốn có vài bài tình ca mới," Gita than phiền với Sidney. "Em chán nghe mấy bản cũ hoài." Sidney đề nghị họ đến WhereHouse, một cửa hàng nhạc nổi tiếng bán dĩa CD mới và đã dùng với giá tốt. Nên họ lái xe đến đường Hungtington.

Khi vào trong cửa hàng, Sidney hỏi người bán hàng nơi để những đĩa nổi tiếng nhất. Cô chỉ cho anh thấy. Sidney và Gita đến chổ đó và bắt đầu tìm. Chỉ có một chổ nhỏ đề "Nhạc Tình ca." Nó chỉ chứa có hai bộ CD. Một bộ "Những bản tình ca của thập niên 50." Nó chứa nhạc gốc diễn bởi nghệ sĩ, như Frank Sinatra và Rosemary Clooney. "Cái này tuyệt," Sidney bảo Gita. "Có 36 bài, và hầu hết là nhạc cổ điển."

Rồi Sidney nhìn bộ CD khác. Nó có tựa đề "Sáu mươi bản tình ca nổi tiếng Thế giới." Trong khi bộ đầu chỉ có 36 bài và giá $16.99, bộ này chứa 60 bài và chỉ mất $11.99. "Này em, mua cái này giá tốt đó," Sidney bảo Gita. Biết là mua giá tốt không phải luôn luôn là một cuộc mua bán tốt, Sidney đọc những chữ in nhỏ trên cạnh của bao bì: "Album này có chứa vài đoạn thâu lại. Tất cả những đoạn đơn ca được biểu diễn bởi ca sĩ gốc. Những đoạn do nhóm được thu lại dùng cho càng nhiều người của thành viên trong nhóm đến mức có thể được
