After a conversation on Twitter with Sasha Devlin about music, I started thinking about the first albums I purchased in my late teens and early twenties. I had my Discman and a handful of CDs. I used to listen to them as I walked to work.
These are the ones I remember. I’m sure there were others.
- Matchbox 20
- Jarabe De Palo
- Third Eye Blind
- Tracy Chapman
So, Shakira, Tracy Chapman, and Jarabe de Palo came from when I moved to Santo Doming at 19 and lived there for two years. The rest I got when I was 18.
I think I listened to the first Matchbox 20 album at least three times a day. It soothed my angst-ridden soul.
How about you?
What were the first albums you remembered listening to?
