Past Albums of the Year

Past Albums of the Year

CategoriesMusic

Music means a lot to me – and one of the reasons why is how it helps me remember things. Listening to a song that was important to me at a certain point in my life instantly transports me back. I don’t have the best memory so this helps a lot. And for that reason, I’ve been keeping lists of my top 10 albums of each year for the past five years.
