I remember when my wife and I first got together and combined our CDs. It was kind of magical to see where the overlaps were. Obviously we both had an Ani DiFranco thing, but also some Shelby Lynne, a ridiculous number of Marianne Faithful overlaps and Radney Foster for goodness sakes.
I kind of miss that.
I also miss listening to a full album and not “smart playlists” or a “collection” or what have you.
So I bought the Taylor Swift. Because my musical tastes for the most part hover around that of a 14-year-old girl.
Just to remain balanced. And also because I have a heart, I also bought The Rails’ “Fair Warning“.
