A Lifetime of Music

Take a journey with me as I take you through my 26 years of life and my favorite music from each year. For the first 6-7 years I have selected what would currently be my favorite 2-3 albums from that year, if I don’t recall my actual favorites. Every year after, I honestly have selected what my actual favorite albums were at that time. There are some embarrassing picks, and bands that have gone on to do horrible things but I promised to be honest in my selections and they are accurate.

We chose a song or 2 at random to include from each year.
