I was in a sorting mood yesterday, I got the hubby involved and we went through our CDs, DVDs and Books and made a pile of ‘get rid of’.
The thing is, it was quite sentimental and it made me think about how your tastes change and different times that ‘that album’ or ‘that film’ reminded me of, so I thought I would share some of what I have come across…..
Alisha’s Attic (Alisha Rules the World) – This has been with me since a teenager and I still love it, the CD I listened to as a teenager drooling over my posters, stressing about a boy I liked or crying to myself because I had a bad day at School. The CD I listened to as a student lying in bed recovering from the night before, stressing over a boy I liked or crying because I missed my family and the CD I listen to now because I love it and it makes me think ‘how things change!’
Space (Three albums) – Fabulous band from my teens/early twenties (well of course I am not much older than that now – ahem). Spiders was one of the first albums I bought for myself and Space were the first proper ‘gig’ I went to, they were something different to the pop music, I loved them!
Don McLean (American Pie) – I bought this album because of the title song, a song that saw me through uni, it can match any mood and was often played in the union. I have to say Don McLean has many fabulous songs on this album. He has a great voice!
The greatest party album under the sun – What a brilliant album, bought on a whim it saw me through many parties, student ones, family ones, mixed ones! Tiger Feet, Build me up Buttercup and so many more, full of classics!
Several 60’s albums – should I be embarrassed that I love, love, love 60’s music – well I am not, these are the albums I bought off my own back, no influence from friends, nightclubs or the student years – I just love them!
Right I am off now to do some nostalgic listening, before I send the CDs to the Charity Shop!
