2 turntables and a microphone
A bazillion years ago when I was young, footloose and fancy free I remember a friend of ours told us that he had a theory that once you had kids the music you were listening to at this point of time will be the music you will listen to for the rest of your life. He asked me what music do you parents listen to? And sure enough my Mum still turns up the radio when she hears Duran Duran's Hungry like the Wolf which was a hit in the year I was born....and the more I think about it her favourite music is all from the 80's so think Elton John, Paul Simon and Phil Collins. Okay, she does enjoy Michael Buble but who's mum doesn't?!
This was uncanny but kind of freaked me out a little. Music is a massive part of Ross' and my life. I can't imagine our always growing itunes library to suddenly stop and become stagnant. We are always searching for new albums and love discovering new music and introducing each other to it. When Tallulah was born I remember Ross and I were going through an obsession with The National. I'm pretty sure this was the first album Tallulah experienced with her mini ears! This album will probably be a favourite for the rest of our lives but hopefully we'll keep listening to new music and our style is ever-growing!
Well I'm pretty sure we are safe because we purchased a bunch of new music this weekend! These are a few albums which I am loving at the moment and are on high rotation; Elbow- Build a Rocket, Boys!, Seeker Lover Keeper- Self Titled, Fleet Foxes- Helplessness Blues & Belles will Ring- Crystal Theatre. I am also listening to The Grates new single Turn me On and San Cisco's single Golden Revolver and patently waiting for their albums to be released!
So, what do you think? Do you think you'll still be listening to the music you are listening to now forever?
