Yesterday I asked you guys to put your five favorite CDs of all time in the comments section to the post entitled “Five.”
In 88 comments, 52 of you posted your lists and 25 of you managed to list only five CDs. The rest couldn’t resist longer lists or honorable mentions.
So you see how difficult only five is, right?
Today is number four.
When I was 24, I spent three months living in Mexico and during that time, and during all of my many many many visits back to that country, and thanks to the music choices of my friends from Mexico, I have learned to come to appreciate their music.
Maybe not all of it because I will NEVER understand the appeal of Mariachi music and the fact that every damn song sounds the same, like this “Coachi peeky weeky lala moody dooody doo. Peety wicky feety rara plooty poo ooo poo.” Srsly.
Listen to at least those two on this album by an artist born in Merida, one of the most beautiful parts of Mexico I have ever visited.
4. Aleks Syntek, 89-99.
You do not need to understand what the words mean because Aleks Syntek speaks the language of Awesome.
Coming next, Number Three, which is an album one of you already listed to make your top five.
If you haven’t yet listed your top five, feel free to do so here. It is a great exercise in FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS AND ONLY LISTING FIVE!
