Every song....another scene.

(Concert list updated Jan. 2014)

This weekend I was talking to a friend about concerts we had attended.

The good. The bad. The ugly.

I would think about one, then another, and another.

In my mind I was trying to form a sort of list. I think I was checking my memory. I would think of one, and it would trigger another and so on.

I decided that while my memory was still in (semi) good shape, I was going to make a list.

And keep it.

And what better place?

I may have to keep updating because my memory is sporadic. Also, I think it is worth noting that the overwhelming majority of these people sing "country music". Considering my tastes are so varied, I have to attribute this to the fact that while I was young, I was at the mercy of my parents musical tastes (country) and when I became old enough to go without them....I was at the mercy of (ahem) Steven's. (again...country) Granted, I like country, but if I would have had my way in Jr. High, I would have been at a New Kids on the Block concert.

Don't tell me if you actually got to go. Even at 37, I still think I might harbor some resentment.
It is only in the last few years that I have ventured away from country music....this time with my sister by my side.

I knew she would come in handy for something.

I can't believe how many concerts you've been to. WOW. I have to admit I did get to see New Kids on the Block. I think I was 14. I was such of big fan of them. Please don't hate me!!

So, does that mean you don't want to know about me seeing them in Oct. 08 and that it was the best. concert. ever! I never got to go in Jr. High/HS either. BTW - I'm totally inspired by this post & am working on my list so I can post it on my blog. ;D
