My Record Collection by Ward Thomas

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week we turn to country pop sisters Catherine and Lizzy Ward Thomas, better known as just Ward Thomas, let's have a look at their choices...

 

You can check out some of Catherine and Lizzy's picks in this playlist...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"This is Avril Lavigne - Under My Skin. Our older brother introduced us to Avril Lavigne. It was the first album we bought together with our pocket money."


The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"Dixie Chicks's Top Of The World. These women are such an inspiration to us in so many ways, and this record was the first album that we heard that made us want to get into music."


The record I've played more than any other is…

"We'd say Taylor Swift - Red. It's the best album to sing along to in the car, no song has got boring!"


The record that always make me feel good is…

"Again it's Taylor Swift, this time with 1989, because her songwriting is really distinctive and perfect for a pick me up sing along!"


The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"We'd say Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now. This is such a beautiful timeless song and it has such a beautiful message."


The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"This is Kacey Musgrave - Pageant Material. This whole album has such a lovely perspective on life."


The record with my favourite cover art is…

"We'd say The Beatles - Sgt Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band, it's just super iconic."


The record with my favourite title is…

"Patti Griffin - Let Him Fly. This song was a huge inspiration for our writing and it has the most simple yet effective title."


The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"The Weeknd - 'I Cant Feel My Face', it's very catchy but we don't understand what it means!"


The last record I bought was…

"This is Christine And The Queens - Tilted. This is so catchy and she is amazing to watch!"


The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2016 is…

"Shaun Mendes - Illuminate. Everything Sean has released is great with bags of energy! We're really looking forward to what the rest of the record sounds like!"


The greatest record of all time is…

"This is Fleetwood Mac - Rumours. There is not a bad song on this album. Every single track is a classic and 40 years later the songs still sound current."
