I own so much music it's not even funny. I mean my CD collection is massive, but it is very closely rivaled by my vinyl collection. I even still own tapes because my car is ancient and only has a tape player which I use frequently (usually it is either Bjork's Post album or Meredith Brooks's single of Bitch). But the vinyl is my favourite by far. There's something really fun about flipping the record over and setting the needle down. I makes listening to music more of an event than just sticking a CD in and letting it go. Beyond that I enjoy the sound so much more! (I'm a sound geek so forgive me. Sound is so incredibly facinating! It's nothing more than invisible bouncing vibrations and yet it comes out as such a magical thing! I'll stop now before I go on and on and on and on and on...) The raw-ness in the quality is just so... Imperfect? And yet that somehow makes it perfect? If that makes any sense! But I really love listening to my vinyl collection and I have decided to share it with you all! Each Sunday I'll share one record from my collection and post a video or two of my favourite songs off the album. Sound cool? I hope so!
So to start us off I will be sharing an album by one of my all time favourite artisits (if not my favourite), Carly Simon. Make fun if you will (some people just don't get my love for her), but I love her! she is a brilliant songwriter and an incredibly unique vocalist. Her music is relateable, honest, and full of deep emotion that draws you in. She is an excellent storyteller and when it comes down to it, that's what great musicians are. I own a few of her albums on vinyl so I'll start off with the oldest that I own, No Secrets. I highly reccomened it and all her music. So here's a few of my favourite songs off the album:
This my favourite song off the Album. I think it's a really fun song!
The Album's name song is one of my favourites just from a musical point of view. I love the way the melody is laid out.
Of course no post about this album would be complete without including what is Ms. Simon's most famous song, You're So Vain. Such a brilliant song.
