What's in my CD rack?
So I’ve been looking through my CD rack, which contains a LOT of CDs, some old and some new, and I’ve picked out a few to share with you. Some of these are really old and embarrassing, but it’s always a laugh to look back on old music and relive the memories that come with them.
S Club 7 – ‘7’ (2000) and Steps – ‘Gold: Greatest Hits’ (2001)
The Steps album was also a favourite of mine for so long! This one is a greatest hits compilation of 20 songs, including the song that everyone hates to love, ‘Tragedy’ (and everyone still remembers the dance, don’t even try to deny it. And several rude versions). This album also contains such bangers as ‘Stomp’, ‘5, 6, 7, 8’, ‘Chain Reaction’ and ‘Better the Devil You Know’. What amazing tunes. They don’t make them like that any more. Not going to lie, I just looked through the track list for this album and could still remember most of the words to all of the songs on these albums.
Atomic Kitten – ‘Feels So Good’ (2001)
Jonas Brothers – ‘Jonas Brothers’ (2007), ‘A Little Bit Longer’ (2008) and ‘Lines, Vines and Trying Times’ (2009)
One Direction – ‘Take Me Home’ (2012) ‘Midnight Memories’ (2013) and ‘Made In The A.M.’ (2015)
‘Now! That’s What I Call Music’
Kelly Clarkson – ‘Breakaway’ (2004)
Paramore – ‘Riot!’ (2007)
So, that’s a small tour of what’s in my CD rack. Obviously I have a LOT more CDs than that, but those were just a few that stood out to me when I was looking through them all and some of them definitely brought back a lot of memories! Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, Olly Murs and all my other favourite artists that you already know about also dominate my CD rack, but these were some little gems that I unearthed and had almost forgotten about.
What are your favourite childhood CDs? Do you still have them? Do you prefer downloads to CDs, or are you like me and prefer to have a physical copy of an album? Leave your answers in the comments, or anything else you’d like to share. I’d love to hear if these albums brought back memories for you guys too.
