Over the past couple of years I’ve been picking up some vinyl records! Ever since my roommate bought me a pink floral record player, I’ve found the itch to start curating my own collection. Buying records is trendier than ever, but I think it’s a great way to remember an album that feels special to you and to treasure it in a unique way.
Here’s a full list of the vinyl records I own:
Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour: One of my favorite albums of all time. Flawless start to finish. “Golden Hour” sounds extra pretty on vinyl.
SZA – CTRL: Obsessed with this album and always will be. I could listen to it forever.
Paramore – After Laughter: A huge comeback for Paramore that I had to own in my collection.
Amy Winehouse – Back to Black: The only Amy album I care about is this one. Always a good one to cook and clean to.
Fleetwood Mac – Rumours: Got this one from my dad’s collection. Been in love with it ever since. I grew up listening to these historic songs.
Bohemian Rhapsody (official movie soundtrack): Loved this new movie so much, my boyfriend and I had to grab this vinyl.
The 1975 – A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships: A gorgeous album that I will never recover from. “Be My Mistake” was made for vinyl.
mansionz – Mansionz: One of my favorite duo albums – so many intricate and unique melodies on this.
The Best of the Beach Boys: Grabbed this one from my dad’s collection – it’s pretty amazing.
Chicago (Live): Found this at an old bookstore and love the live sound of every song.
Barbra Streisand – Je m’appelle Barbra: Picked this up at an old bookstore and found it mesmerizing to zone out to on a rainy day.
Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band – Stranger In Town: One of my dad’s that I had to include in my collection. He loves Bob Segar.
Hall and Oates – Private Eyes: Another one from the dad collection, I just find Hall and Oates so funny and entertaining. A fantastic duo.
Banks – The Altar: One of my favorite albums of all time and one that I really connected to when it was released. Listen to “Mother Earth” and “Lovesick”.
And here’s my wishlist of some albums I’d like to add to my collection:
Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
Coldplay – Ghost Stories
OneRepublic – Dreaming Out Loud
Maggie Rogers – Heard It In A Past Life
