Oops. Seems like I was having a little too much fun and missed Listography.
I was actually having so much fun my kids nearly didn't get their Easter Eggs yesterday. It seems I hid them when in a drunken haze of 'mummy autopilot' but then couldn't remember where I had actually put them. Big Fail.
Anyway you'll be pleased to hear that I spent most of the day in bed listening to all the fun going on downstairs and praying to the ivory God of bathrooms.
Aaaanyway. On to Listography. I realise that this sounds a bit like a MTV Awards nomination but here we go - my Top 5 Albums by a Male Solo Artist (in no particular order)
1. Jeff Buckley - Grace.
A classic and brilliant album. I should take a moment to thank a guy called Rob that I used to work with for introducing me to it. And apologise to him for then 'acquiring' his copy, never to be seem by him again. Hope he got himself a new one.
2. David Bowie - Hunky Dory.
With thanks to my siblings for passing on their good taste.
3. Bob Marley - Catch a Fire.
I couldn't really have a list without him. So hard to choose just one but I'll settle on this very happily.
4. Tom Waits - Closing Time.
Again it was a lovely boy who gets the thanks for bring the great Tom Waits into my life. My first year of university and we skirted around each other for a whole year having deep and meaningfulls and sharing music crushes. The boy moved on but Tom stuck around.
And now - shock, horror - it's time to break my own Listography rules and put a joint entry in here.
5. Van Morrison - Astral Weeks \ Neil Young - Harvest.
Too tough to call.
If you want to join in and share your own list then just write your post on your own blog and then come back here to link up and have a nosey around some other peoples record collections. Sound like a good waste of time to me.
