Top Ten Albums I Purchased Most Recently

Top Ten Tuesday is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I count down my top ten choices on a particular theme. This weekly event is hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Top Ten Albums I Purchased Most Recently.

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt, the loosely-defined “All About Audio”, was so much fun! While I would have loved to have kept this week’s post strictly literary-themed and I’m sure many of my fellow bloggers will be discussing their favourite audiobooks and podcasts, I’ve not yet had the pleasure of listening to either (I know, guys. I KNOW.). Instead, I decided to use this week’s rather open-ended topic to talk about one of my other favourite things – Music! While it’s not something I have the opportunity to discuss on Pop! Goes The Reader very often, music is something that brings me a great deal of joy, and I’m always on the look-out for a new album or song that’s perfect for every occasion, whether it be driving in the car, running on the treadmill, or winding down after a long day at work. More specifically, in today’s post I’ll be exploring the ten albums I’ve purchased most recently, as well as my favourite track from each. In doing so I can only hope that, with any luck, I might be able to help you find the perfect song that’s right for you, too!

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

Favourite Song:

“I wait for you, but hold my eyes shut / You don’t see me but come here close / Tear my hands down, pull off the blinds / Look me in the eyes.”


Favourite Song:

“Everyone keeps a darker place / To lose control. You’re not alone / And when you come looking for embrace / I know your soul. I’ll be your home.”


Favourite Song:

“But the only thing I see, blue skies ahead of us / Searching for the empty half when something’s filling up the glass / I’m hopeless.”


Favourite Song:

“I never really know when he’ll be leaving / And even with hello I hear goodbye / He always makes me cry.”


Favourite Song:

“Freeze! / It’s minus degrees / And it’s creeping right through me from my ankles into my knees. / Please! / I gotta go now. / It’s moving right through me from my belly up to my brow / Wow! / This is not what you want, now.”


Favourite Song:

“I thought I’d found jewel of the Nile / You’re just a shiny rock in my pile / So many stones, stuck in my shoes.”


Favourite Song:

“Oh, tonight I’m a little too turned on to talk about us / And tomorrow I’ll be too turned off and won’t give a fuck / About you and I / I don’t wanna see you cry / But it feels like a matter of time.”


Favourite Song:

“Don’t tell me to smile / Don’t ask why I frown / Don’t tell me to smile / When, for all you know, I just buried my mother.”


Favourite Song:

“Running out of wind / You took it out of me, fell out of reality / Counting all my sins / You make a felony out of all the good in me.”


Favourite Song:

“And I want to keep us all alive / And I want to see you with my eyes / But I see you in the fireflies / And how extraordinary is that?”
