ONE Album.

You can only listen to ONE album for the rest of your life.  Only ONE.  Which album do you choose?

My pick is Sting’s Ten Summoner’s Tales. 


The title is a play on Sting’s given name, Gordon Sumner and a character, “the summoner”, from Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.  Aside from this album being beautifully poetic, Sting’s voice relaxes me like no other.

I’ve seen Sting in concert numerous times.  Even caught The Police Reunion Tour.  And, while I appreciate his early work with The Police, nothing compares to his career as a solo artist.  NOTHING.  I finally met this perfect Englishman almost five years ago.  He wore this scarf wrapped cleverly around his neck and…  Oh, I could go on and on.  He made this cute little reference about my name and Dusty Springfield.  How beautiful that day was. 

If I could only download one song from this album {oh, the humanity}, then it would be “Shape of My Heart.” 

Your turn.

ONE album.  No more.

And, this is completely Thanksgiving related, because I am ever so thankful that Gordon Sumner was born on October 2, 1951.

    Right now my favorite has to be the first CD (realeased earlier this month) by Death on Two Wheels. This brand new rock and roll band featrures our own EWC David Fountain and Paul Doss. Those guys are living the life on the road in southern California for a couple of weeks. Playing a few shows and working on a new recording. They are being featured here in the ATL on 96.1 FM this week at 10:00 PM everynight. It’s really cool hearing our guys on the radio. Their music grows on you. I usually listen to country but I find myself listening to their CD everyday on my way to work.

    Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving.

    It would have to be a double album so you don’t get bored. Also it would have to be a best of, so you get quality stuff. My choice.

    Best of Gaither Vocal Band (2 disc set)

  13. I would chose the soundtrack to the Big Chill. Classics on that album!! Songs that make you laugh, cry and sing along. If I was picking Christian it would be Jeremy Camp Stay.

    I love music…So hard to narrow it down. 🙂
