foisted on an unsuspecting me
was the challenge:
detail the 15 albums that changed your life.
The ones with the power to transport you.
the ones that consumed you.
i began with the beatles because i thought that was,
for me, where (despite tubby the tuba, peter pan,
camelot, hans christian andersen and my fair lady, et. al)
the music began. I googled album covers which lead
to the madness of the completest:
recreate the playlist that was/is my life.
don't even ask me about the track list. it isn't finished
and i'm trying to ignore it.
then came the obsession with songs remembered from
the radio, from before the age of buying music
...early rock and roll. hits of the fifties.
which lead to more list making.
much like blogging itself,
and also: no rhyme, no reason.
