I'd say it's more like you pick up the needle and drop it on the record, then wait as the song loops to get to the part you want to hear.

This is different from a record where it's one continuous "spiral" (although that's the same as a CD, DVD, etc.) On the C64, each track is a full circle so if you start from any part on the circle, you'll eventually see all of it. And bitwise, as you point out, the circle is identical no matter where you start.
