My Golden Records

My darling and fantabulous friend Alisa Bernal recently posted a list. This list was of the 28 albums that most influenced her over the (almost) 28 years of her life. I immediately knew this was something I had to do. The list also did not take me much time. I already have an idea of what I will add after my next birthday.

Sigh. I heart music.

the 28...

1.Raffi- Singable songs for the very young
2.MWS- Change your world
3.Paul Simon- rhythm of the saints
4.U2- Joshua Tree
5.The Lion King soundtrack
6.Steve Miller Band- fly like an eagle
7.Amy Grant- Heart in Motion
8.Sarah McLachlan- Fumbling towards ecstasy
