First up on my list of 10 Albums I Would Take To A Desert Island is Boston’s self-titled debut album. What can I say about this album that puts it on the list? First, every single song makes me stop, stare off into the distance, and smile as soon as I hear the opening chords. It’s the same for just about any of Boston’s songs, but this album edges out all the others.
If I’m in a funk over something, all it takes is a few notes from this song in particular, and my mood lifts instantly.
