You Can’t Smell iTunes – The Rob’s Most Memorable CD List

I was sitting in a co-workers office and we started talking about the Beastie Boys. She told me that she got her first CD along with her first CD player when she was in eighth grade and it was Alanis Morrisette followed by the Beastie Boys as her second CD. She thought I'd be surprised by her album choices but I was shocked at the age she got her first CD. I've been hooked on CDs since I was 11. We kept reminiscing about milestone CDs. We all have them and it's interesting to think about how much music affects your life. Even the act of purchasing a CD is magical. I still don't purchase iTunes because I actually smell a freshly cracked CD and enjoy its rich aroma. So, onto the good stuff:

Dangerous was a gift from the Easter Bunny in 1993 when I was in the 4th grade. He's a smart rabbit. Michael is still the king, and heinterested in music.

For my 11th birthday I got my first CD player along with two albums. Thriller was brother's favorite album, and was probably sick of me 'borrowing' his so he bought me one of my own. I asked for CrazySexyCool.

Featuring "Shoop," "Whatta Man," and "None of Your Business," Very Necessary was unavoidable in 1995!

This album was huge where I grew up... Being from Philadelphia and all!

My Mom saw the dreaded Parental Advisory sticker and that was it for Naughty. The fact that they had "Naughty" in their name didn't make this CD any more welcoming for my mom/

I made the foolish error of leaving this collection of curse words in my mom's car as a seventh grader. I learned that when you break a CD in half, it doesn't break cleanly... Rather, it breaks into THOUSANDS of fragments. What Mom did NOT know at the time was that I had backed the album up on cassette tape and had it in my walkman. If she's reading this, I guarantee you she's steaming mad right now.

I thought friends would think it was cool but really they all wanted to beat me up. Bonus: I was also hoping for more Baby Spice pics on in-slip but that didn't happen either making Spice my epic CD fail. This is actually EASILY my most embarassing purchase. I deserved to be bullied.
