You Are Home :: My Top 20 Bands

My best friend gave me this keen book for my birthday this year that I absolutely love, and have been both dying to, and avoiding, using. You see, it is this journal about music, each page a question for you to fill-in and create a list (with fantastic music-related art included, by the way). This is so right up my alley and so what the list-making music obsessive thrives off of. That said, there is something so anxiety inducing (to me) about putting down, in actual pen to paper (and even typed ink to screen paper), seemingly permanent choices of favorites and loves that I have put it off. Enough of that, though, as part of my write more self-demands I am also challenging myself to step out of self-created comfort zones and express myself more.

This book reminds me of something that Penny Lane and William Miller would compile, on those endless bus rides whist following Stillwater on-tour. In one of my all-time favorite films honor, then, I will proceed with filling this book out, sharing my responses here at lyriquediscorde, and feature a photograph of Penny and/or William with each entry, categorizing it under You Are Home entries.

Without further ado, the first near-impossible list (thanks Bree!) in no particular order because it is hard enough to pick twenty, I cannot put them in any kind of best to me order, too.
