Music I listened to before reaching high school.
There were some classy choices 👌🏼
- •Innocent Eyes - Delta GoodremAhh such nostalgia, all those long car rides, attempting to hit the "cause I was born to try" note, doing the little squeal at the end of "Predictable" and singing "if we ever said we'd never be together and we end it with goodbye" in one breath.
- •Mistaken Identity - Delta GoodremYes, the second Delta Goodrem album in my possession, I remember the song "Analysis" and picturing her singing about a detective - I don't know 💁🏽
- •ShrekWhat a soundtrack it was. With classics like "I'm on my Way" and "Hallelujah", it was a hit for the whole family, car rides with the Shrek soundtrack were always happy ones. And don't forget "All Star" the most played track on the whole album.
- •Il DivoSooo it wasn't exactly my choice to listen to this but having a Nonna, I was cultured enough to listen to the music she wanted to and begrudgingly actually enjoy it. And I really do love it now, I have no idea what they're singing about, but their voices all melting together - mmm yummy 👌🏼
- •Mariah Carey - Music BoxI CAN'T LIVE IF LIVING IS WITHOUT YOU! Now whenever I hear this song all I can think about is Bridget Jones' stirring rendition at Daniel Cleaver's Christmas party.
- •The Beach Boys - Greatest HitsDad's music played a big part in my childhood and still does. I love The Beach Boys, their songs were catchy and fun, they sung about cars and surfing and they were downright cool. I remember sitting in the cinema with my bestie one day, waiting for the film to start and "Kokomo" came on (not an original Beach Boys but eh) and she was thoroughly impressed that I knew all the words.
- •The Eagles - The Complete Greatest Hits"Take it Easy" was the first song I learnt on the guitar, and "Desperado" came next. Again, such great songs that were easy to sing along to, Dad's choices of music were great 👌🏼
- •Roy Orbison - Black and White NightAnother of Dad's classics, I think I was seriously educated in the musical greats! I had the purr in "Pretty Woman" down pat.
- •Dwight Yoakam - Just Lookin' For a HitAgain, dad's music, this was my introduction to country music, with guitars and Cadillac's, I was pretty good at that nasally Yoakam sound.
- •Kelly Clarkson - BreakawayMan did this album get played non stop. I had a friend in primary school called Amy who introduced me to Kelly Clarkson, we used to listen to her at lunch time, using Amy's disc-man with a headphone each. We were so cool.
- •And now I feel like dancing - with Sebastian Stan, of course.
