I have over 5000 albums on various formats so I guess I have well over 45,000 songs.
I have tons of vinyl in a storage unit somewhere, plus about 1400 CDs worth of music digitally "backed up", along with another several thousand "files" I aquired from different places.
Talk about funny, I bought a used car last week that still has a cassette player in the dash. I wanted to put a tape in it so it would look to the thieves like I had just a no frills system (the CD player is behind a fold down compartment cover), so I had to look through some old boxes of junk to find one. The tape I found was one I made from an album a local rock station put together in the early eighties promotong local bands. On a whim I went ahead and popped in the tape and I heard those magical pops from the vinyl I recorded it from. Too cool.

If you want endless analog audio pleasure, feast your eys on the Telex 48D.
It holds up to 12 8track cartridges and it can play quadraphonic tapes too.
Some 8tracks are as long as two hours. Load that with 12 120minute tapes and you have 24 hours of great music.
I prefer these over the record changer just in case me or someone in the room decides they want to dance.
No need to worry about the neddle skipping if the floor starts shaking.
Smart idea to disgust your nice stereo. I've always been a proponent of keeping the original factory stereo in cars.

Just 89 songs, I have a 512Mb Sony MP3 player... somewhere.
One of the headphones stopped working, so I put it in a safe place until I got new headphones, only now that safe place seems to be rather illusive. I'm not that bothered though, I got through a 13 hour flight without it, quite refreshing as well not to have it constantly in my ears whenever I'm abroad as I used to. Anyway, I find now that music just doesn't sound the same through tinny earplugs as a good surround sound system!

I have a pathetic 383 songs on my iTunes. The hard drive of my 80GD iPod can get very lonely with such a sparse population. Nearly 1.5GB and just over a day of music, I'm getting sick of listening to them actually.
