Thanks for always clearing my head, healing my heart, and lifting my spirits.
Who doesn’t love music? I recently took a trip to Good Records in Dallas, Texas and I was so excited to see all the records in the bins. I grew up during the era of CD’s and walk mans. The worst thing that could happen to a 13 year old kid growing up was one of their favorite CD’s got scratched. That felt like the end of the world to any music lover. I also grew up during the era when burning CD’s and creating your own mixtapes were cool. I can’t tell you how many cases of CD’s I’ve bought growing up. Then came the iPod, and of course I had to get my hands on one of those. In 2018 CD’s aren’t as popular as they were before and everyone streams music online.

Even though the devices that we listen to music on has changed through out time one thing remains the same……. the music. A classic will always be a classic. Technology has advanced since my days of burning CD’s now you can stream music on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, YouTube, etc. This has made listening to your favorite songs easier than ever. One thing I love about people is that they will never let us forget or miss out on the good old days. Record stores have always kept the pieces of history for us old school gyals who loves a good record on a record player or jamming to a CD in the car.
Being at this record store reminded me of my childhood and how much I loved listening to music. Here is a few of some of my favorite oldies.
