top five

I love music…probably more than I love anything else (even chocolate :-). I grew up with parents who loved it and made music a part of our lives everyday…sometimes to our chagrin. (Listening to my dad play the same four bars of music on the piano all day long did not do a lot to motivate me to learn how to play the instrument, nor did it to anything for my dislike of Cannon in D.) 

Moving on. Music has always been a huge part of my life. I can think back to any point in my life and name a song that reminds me of that time. If I were to create a “mix for my life” it would include anything from Metallica to David Lanz, and include really random stuff like The Party (anyone else remember them?). 
As I have been thinking about all of the music-related posts I would like to write, I’m going to start with this; the top five albums from my youth (through high school…not after). These are albums that I can (to this day) listen to end-to-end without skipping more than one song because I love them that much (and they hold so many memories).
  1. Shawn Colvin – Fat City
  2. Counting Crows – August & Everything After
  3. Dave Matthews – Under the Table and Dreaming
  4. U2 – War
  5. Madonna – True Blue
Eventually, I’ll make a list of all of the songs that represent my life (for my own sake…and that of my posterity), but this is where I’ll start. 

bueller?... bueller?... bueller?
