5 Albums I Can’t Live Without


Todd Rundgren



My high school fave, love every song on it.


Madman Across the Water
, Elton John



Every song means something to me and all of his records except the later ones…

Every record by the Cars



All reminds me of being a musician in Boston in the ‘80s…best time ever to be a musician…

, B-52’s



Reminds me of living on Whitemarsh Island in Savannah, Georgia with my husband. We would blast that on the way down to Tybee in his VW Beetle.

The Payback
, James Brown



Would have the title song on loop all night much to my neighbors’ chagrin. (Talk about giving up your age…)
