Music for me is like traveling or watching the New Orleans Saints. I just gotta have it in my life.
Now I cannot carry a tune to save my life and I cannot play an instrument nor do I know much about music but music is certainly a love. There are songs I love and there are artist I love. There are even albums I love and I am not even sure if i would consider myself a fan of some of the albums I love, but the albums that have captured my attention over and over, well, those albums are a part of me.
The album I have probably listened to the most is The Blues by Nina Simone. This album is a mix of songs from the late 60's and early 70's.
Here they are, the albums I certainly cannot live without...
