Like most people, I am proud of the first album I ever purchased. I think it really defined my elementary school years, and because of it, the artist is someone I respect to this day...despite everything. My first album was Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time."
The sugary-sweet album was perfect for me when I was the ripe age of nine. "(You Drive Me) Crazy" would be my favorite Spears song of all time, and as I continued to collect her albums throughout my life, the nostalgia never faded. She shaved her head; I still couldn't let her go. She's far from winning Parent of the Year, but I still respected her. Because she had been in my life since I was eight years old, she could do no wrong in my eyes.
Although today she may not be making the greatest music, and I miss the days of her and JT, I still respect her. She was like my musical version of a big sister. Although Jessica may have had a television show, Christina a better voice, and Mandy an acting career, Britney is and always will be my favorite of them all. What a fun, perfect album.
What was your first album, and do you still listen to it?
