Music has always been an important part of my life and a significant part of this blog. Whether it is listening to music, playing it by myself or with the band, there is always a song close by.
I was asked to name my 20 favorite albums, but found the task daunting.
Deciding on an alternative, I will list my 100 favorite records, broken down into five categories of twenty each. The categories will be:
- Instrumental only
- Live performances
- Compilations or “Best of” collections
- Studio Recordings
- Individual songs from other albums
I started creating the lists this evening and will need to do some significant editing as I have way too many albums already. These lists will be of “contemporary” music and when this project is completed, maybe I create some “classical” lists. Baroque would be more like it. If nothing else, you will likely be exposed to some musicians you have never heard of before. . . and you might actually like them.
A song that John describes as about ” Desire, love gained and love lost, all in the setting of a Southern, railroad town”.
