Fun fact of the day
Because you know we're all about the fun facts around here: It's the CD's 25th birthday today!
So, naturally, when I read that on Thursday, I started asking everyone at work if they remembered the first CD they ever bought and what their favorite CD of all time was. This led to all kinds of revelations, such as the fact that one guy I work with has actually NEVER bought a CD and the fact that apparently I am the only person on the planet who doesn't think Joshua Tree is the best U2 CD.
I definitely remember the first CD I got: Boyz II Men, Cooleyhighharmony. (It was all Bangles and Debbie Gibson cassette tapes up 'til then.) The last CD I bought? The Garden State soundtrack ... THREE YEARS ago!
My favorite CD ... I very, VERY rarely like entire CDs unless they're soundtracks, but I have a big soft spot for August and Everything After by the Counting Crows. Every time I started to get a little sick of it, I'd find another song on there I decided I loved. I'm not sure what my favorite song on there is ... Sullivan Street? Either Sullivan Street or A Murder of One, probably.
(Other random fun fact: I was reading somewhere else today, totally unrelated, that the Counting Crows are rereleasing that album next month, in a two-disc set that features an undoubtedly smashed Adam Duritz and the boys in concert in Paris.)
So ... what's your favorite/first CD?
