This week the theme for Sunshine Sundays is ‘Music’. I thought I would dazzle (or bore) you with my first albums.
I received K.D Lang’s album when I got my first CD player. I think I listened to it a handful of times..her style wasn’t really one I loved.
This was the first album I picked out myself. My Dad got it for me from Silly Solly’s. I played the hell out of it.
The good old ‘best of’ albums. Every year for Christmas I would get a variety of these babies with the hits from the previous years. There was Pepsi Chart Hits, Now, So Fresh and 100% hits, all with the hottest hits from the year. I still have all of them and it’s interesting seeing what different genres were popular each year.
Aqua was another album that got the hell played out of it. I knew (and ahem know) the lyrics to all of the songs on this album and I was sad when it came to an untimely end..an end that we do not talk about, because the person who ended it is an arsehole. In case you’ve never heard these guys..I give you Barbie Girl.
My Mum got this for me when her and Dad went on a trip and I had to stay home. I hated the CD for years. Didn’t like the music, hell I was only in primary school so anything I couldn’t dance to was uncool. Then I turned into a moody teenager and it became a regular in the CD wallet I carried with my Discman.
I felt like such a badass when I got my Mum to buy this for me. Now there’s an oxymoron statement if I’ve ever seen one. You see I was only 14 at the time and so needed an adult to buy the CD for me. So badass.
What were the albums that made up your childhood?
