My Life In Sound: Inspired by Questlove

Recently, one of the few people I consider a musical soulmate tagged me in a Facebook post by Questlove where he described his #LifeInSound:

First thing I said was, “I’m in… but it’s gonna take a while.” With something like this, you want to get it just right. I’m not worried about impressing anyone with anything deep cut or whatever. I did the 10 Day/10 Albums thing and included Spice Girls. So fuck it on wanting to be edgy and cool. I want to make sure I get my experiences with music right.

There was a lot of back and forth and back again on some of these, but do know great care went into this. Much as Questlove did, I present this without commentary

1. First Complete Album You Remember Hearing

Tom Petty – Full Moon Fever

2. First Album You Were Gifted

Weird Al Yankovic – Bad Hair Day

3. First Album You Destroyed (accident/purpose)

Guns ‘n’ Roses – Appetite for Destruction

4. First Album You Had To Purchase More Than 3 times

5. Album you never put in your top ten cause you think you’ll look uncool

Matchbox 20 – Yourself or Someone Like You

6. G’head… impress me with an album you think makes you look cool for including it

7. Choose your favorite artist of all time: now gimme the album you like THE LEAST from them
