PermaLinkQueued Up Or Cued Up?
06:02:28 PM

There are six discs in the CD changer for the rest of the trip home. As an occasional DJ, I know that one song would be "cued up", and I think that applies to an entire disc as well. Seems reasonable. But when you're talking about a changer, isn't it more appropriate to say that they're "queued up"? This odd little quirk of English usage, which never occurred to me before, suddenly has me quite fascinated. It's probably the caffeine, really. But have you ever thought about this? Just wondering.

Here's what's in the changer:

  • Grateful Dead In The Dark

  • Meatloaf Bat Out Of Hell

  • Bob Dylan Time Out Of Mind

  • Jethro Tull Original Masters

  • Alice Cooper The Alice Cooper Show

  • Elton John Collection Vol 2. 1972-1974

I may be wrong but I think cued up is a metaphore relating to a ball positioned in front of a snooker cue (or pool or billiards - whatever) Quite why it is a cue rather than a bat or club is another question.

Back in the old days of reel to reel tape decks and stuff, they usually had a control that handles "cue" and "review". cue is what became known as fast forward and review became rewind.

If you imagine recording a broadcaster to tape. You'd cue the tape to the correct point and then afterwards stop recording and review it. When ready to record another segment you'd cue again.

When you cue an album track, you skip a section of vinyl or whatever and have it ready to start playing.

That all make sense?
