We're actually trying to sell a lot of our stuff, to get money and to simplify.
So yesterday I went through our CD collection and kept only that without which I cannot live: All my Beatles, together and apart; all my Grateful Dead; all my Dylan; all my Steely Dan; most (but not all!) of my Neil Young; and a few assorted single specialties that I can't give up ... my Yes, "Close to the Edge," Jefferson Airplane, Pink Floyd.
Those that I am giving away (100-some-odd) include, interestingly enough as an afterthought, all the women musicians ... Kate Bush, Bonnie Raitt, Enya, Joan Osborne, Suzanne Vega, Toni Childs ...
I guess I loved those CDs, but since we don't have room for this in our lives anymore, these are the ones I can easily do without.
And yes, I've dated myself by this list, I know. I am in the 40-range.
But seriously, which do you have that you can live without ... and is there a genre that you once loved that you've lost?
And which will go with you to your deathbed?
