Enya-A Day Without Rain

Sinead O'Connor- I Do Not Want What I have Not Got

Yoko Ono-

Ok, sorry, I can't do it......

Alright, seriously this time,

I got so used to mp3's that the idea of needing a particular album, with the classic combination of good song/bad song/bad song, is no longer really relevant.

There are a gazillion songs, but very few actual albums, that I consider must-have.
