Is this normal?

I remember listening to CDs when I was younger but until this year, I never operated one of those CD players that has a part where you mount the disc on, and then it spins the disc. This year I got a Discman that's around 20 years old. One day I was at school and about to listen to my Linkin Park CD and when I opened the lid, the CD player wasn't on and it was empty, yet the part that spins the CD was spinning by itself for a few seconds. I found it a little creepy yet interesting. Do CD players do this sometimes? After getting the Discman I've been wanting to learn more about CD players.

Over my many years of flying about once a month, I used various Discman's to keep me entertained and block out the noise (until after a VERY long ~15-hr flight I left it and ~20 CD's & Hybrid SACD's on the aircraft).

My best guess is that you inadvertently brushed your finger against the CD....or the cover released in such as way to induce a bit of rotation to the disc....which is very easy to do with minimal resistance to rotation....
