For the Love of Music. My Top 40 List Over the Last 6 Months.

For the Love of Music. My Top 40 List Over the Last 6 Months.

Music has always been a big deal to almost everyone around me. My parents took me to my first concert when I was 5. (Elvis. That’s right.) My brother and sister (above) both play the guitar and sing. James knows more about music that just about anyone I know. The Hurricane is obsessed with sound… constantly crooning from his carseat along with everything from Richard Hawley to Gomez. And I spend way too much money on iTunes. This spending has helped with #27 on my year list…

27.) Bring more music back into my life. Make a soundtrack each quarter.

So I’d love to share my recent Top 40 with you. Some are old. Some are new. All are kicking.
