Walking to the beat of my own drum….


Recently I received a note on Facebook to create a list of the first 15 albums that come to mind, spending no more than 15 minutes creating your list.  I was done in under 5 minutes…

The “problem” I have with this, if it can even be classified as a problem, is that there are truly too many influential albums to choose from!  Since posting the list of 15 last night, my mind has been running rampant with albums I should have or could have listed.  After looking back and reviewing the 15, I am compelled to continue on with this list…not for any other reason but my own obsessive compulsiveness in such an area as music.  I am such a music junkie 🙂

No genre is excluded in my music library.  I am a lover of all artists old and new; classic and pop. I am continuously on the look out for up and coming artists, while also rediscovering some tried and true artists that I have let slide by the wayside over the years.

There are of course the “givens” in my library…the ones that anybody who knows me at all, knows are my all time favorites.  Dave Matthews, being my all time favorite…My college roommates and friends can attest to my obsession when it comes to Dave.  Somethings, no matter how much time passes, will never change.
