Top 10 Soundtracks of my (Post-secondary) Youth


Here it is, installment two of the Top 10 Soundtracks of My life. My previous post covered albums that accompanied my childhood and teen years. Today’s post is all about the post-secondary years. Besides endless studying and drama, there was also a ton of music to try and keep me sane. Here are my Top 10 (with honourable mentions, because who can limit themselves to 10 favourites?? Not  me).

As mentioned, since it was impossible for me to pick only 10 from a LIFETIME of music-loving, I’ve divided them into different life phases, and limited them to ones I’ve listened to obsessively throughout the years.  The categories are….

Sounds of Childhood
The College Life and…
