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 7 is “Fly on the Wall” – albums or tracks that it would have been just amazing to have been a “fly on the wall” during their recording! Imagine having a glimpse onto the recording of a renowned album by a famous band witnessing the captivating sparkle of creative alchemy, raw emotions, and collaborative magic that give birth to iconic musical masterpieces. Hear the Top 5 Records, we would have liked to see being made!
