The prompt for this post would've coincided perfectly with Saturday since I attended the Dot To Dot music festival in Bristol on Saturday. Ya know, if I hadn't been such a poor excuse for a
human being blogger. Instead, you're getting some well-matured content. I'm not saving it am I?
This is a difficult topic for me. Music is a huge part of my life. It really would be a serious consideration whether, given the choice, I should lose my sight or my hearing. It can depend on the day. And it is doubly difficult to narrow down my choices. Five albums? Where do I even start?! I'm not always an album-person anyway; there are some individual songs I adore whilst having no idea what the rest of the album sounds like. I feel naughty admitting that, not sure why.
I was trying to decide between five favourites of all time or my five current favourites... OK, I've decided. Some of them are favourites, some are those I just really want to share whilst their residence on the all-time-favourites list is as yet, undecided. Discovering new music is a biggie so one or two will also be quite new to me.
Back To Front – Lionel RichieThis album holds a very special place in my, and my family's, heart(s) for very personal reasons that I am not going to share here. But it's also because it was the soundtrack to a good few years of my youth. My dad had purchased a new car with a CD player (!) and this was one of the CDs we owned. I'm not even sure I can pick out one particular track as my favourite, I love them all, but All Night Long and Dancing On The Ceiling never fail to get me to my feet. Never. Lionel also just seems like an awesome dude!
Ceremonials – Florence + The Machine
Six60 – Six60
Bad Blood – Bastille
xx – The xx
Phew! I'm glad that's done. Turns out I like British, specifically English artists then.
This month, I'm taking part in Blog Every Day in May (BEDM) and this is day 25.
