The question here isn’t will you or won’t you, that’s an argument for another time, the real question is what song would you pick…
The maniacs (I mean that in the most endearing way possible) over at And Vinyly (clever as fuck name) have found a way for us to live on in song, literally. So I ask this, what song would you pick? And before the Vinyl collectors come out of the woodwork and come at my dome with the “Uh Matt, Vinyls hold more than one song”. I know, but to make this decision a lot easier on everyone, let’s just stick with one, okay Ryan Gosling?
My pick is the timeless classic by Sir Elton John, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’. If you are not familiar, listen and enjoy.
An all-time great song that stretches across every genre of music. Not only is it great, it sends the message i’m looking for. Which is…sure it’s a great song, but its also super sad. People are going to play my dead body at a party and there won’t be a dry eye in the house. Maybe you should have been nicer to me when I was not a vinyl record.
Over the weekend my brother and I were lucky enough to fall into possession of a large collection of vinyls. So we did what any level headed, music loving human would do; we had a record draft. Luckily for me, and for my brother, we both have VERY different tastes in music. I was able to score all the hair metal I could carry and he made away with a sizable stack of Doo-Wops and Motown. Here is one of my scores from the weekend.
