Albums that Changed My Life, Part 1

  1. 1.
    Eilleen: The Complete Limelight Sessions (Shania Twain)
    This is the first album I ever owned. I got it from my uncle for Christmas and I had no idea who Shania Twain was. This album introduced me to country and rock n roll, as well as shameless air guitar sessions in my bedroom.
  2. 2.
    Abbey Road (The Beatles)
    In grade nine I finally HEARD what my father played all those years growing up and I fell in love with the Fab Four. They introduced me to meaningful song lyrics and wacky psychedelic sound. Oh, and hippie culture ✌️☮
  3. 3.
    Recovery (Eminem)
    The Real Slim Shady was struggling with depression and addiction. I was struggling with heartbreak and abuse. He was in recovery, and so was I.
  4. 4.
    The Blessed Unrest (Sara Bareilles)
    She taught me to be brave, to love fearlessly, and that I could have a voice through music and poetry.
  5. 5.
    Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die (Panic! at the Disco)
    No one else could accurately express how I felt growing up as a teenager like Brendon Urie could. (Plus he's a fox and I was an emo kid once.)
