Begin the Begin

Hello, and welcome to The Vinyl Countdown. Before we get settled among the grooves, I think some insight on how this blog came to be is warranted.

This blog’s beginnings can be traced back to the backseat of my mother’s bright white Ford Windstar circa 2002. Car rides with mom were filled with an endless rotation of cassette tapes–me belting out my own interpretation of whatever the likes of Morrissey and Sting were whining about.

Car ride sing-alongs soon evolved into living room concerts in which I channeled my inner Belinda Carlisle–solidifying my undying love of all things new wave and synth.

Thankfully, I outgrew the living room routines and discovered a newfound hobby in record collecting–compiling a selection of vinyls from Paul Simon to The Paper Kites.

And so The Vinyl Countdown was born.

By no means am I musically inclined, but I hope to use this space to document my expanding collection and share my thoughts along the way. In turn, I hope you will stick around and enjoy the process.
