Music Monday: My first album

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?

My first albums were actually ALBUMS!!! How crazy is that?!? was Purple Rain by Prince! Great Christmas gift for a 5 yr old =) I loved it though...I think I also got Madonna (who I adored growing up even thought I was 5) and Michael Jackson.

Mine was Chuck Berry's Golden Decade on tape. I am not old enough to remember 50's rock'n'roll, but there was a big revival thing when I was a teen. I do still occasionally listen to the replacement CD, or more often youTube Chuck Berry performances and bore my Facebook friends with the links
