What Were Listening To   On An Endless Road Trip

From time to time we will post a list of music we like, titled “What We’re Listening To.” We hope to give a specific theme to each list to make it a little more exciting and we want you all to join in with us too! So look over our lists and then leave your own list in the comments. We can’t wait to see what you are listening to as well.

The theme this time is On An Endless Road Trip. Here’s the criteria for each list…

1. You are on a road trip that has no destination or timeframe, you will probably be driving forever, but if it does end at some point you are unaware of when that time will come.

2. You have to be willing to listen to each album over and over.

3. You HAVE to choose five albums, you can ONLY choose five albums.
