Welcome to Top 5 Records! The weekly show-and-tell online hangout where we discuss our love of music and our “Top 5 Records” for particular occasions.

Whether we’re at the decks DJing a set at the party, manning the tape deck while driving on a cross-country road trip, commiserating with sad songs over a broken heart, or stranded on a lonely with nothing but music, each scenario calls for a different essential Top 5 records for THAT moment. What are your Top 5 Records for….?

Our theme for Volume 2 is “Side 1, Track 1” – pretty self-explanatory. To participate, simply create a 10×20 presentation on PechaKucha.com – upload 10 images in total, 2 slides dedicated to each in your Top 5, (an image of the front cover, and an image for the back cover.) It’s super easy and fun.
