I have a CD with music that has a crack?

Most of the songs work apart from one or two but the ones that don't work are my fave songs, its only slightly cracked around the edge of a part of the CD. Also a few weird tiny bubbles that I thought was just dirt to scrape off but is apparently part of the CD, do you know how can I get those songs to play? thanks. I have tried: Scraping the bubbles off which didn't work also cleaning it that didn't work either. I think it was caused by: Its been dropped and kind of left outside in the rain lol
