Music Made Me: Laura Leighe

Local singer Laura Leighe reveals the five albums that perfected her pop music.


Music

Rod Lott
Boyz II Men, II (1994)
I believe this was the first CD that I bought with my own allowance at Duncan’s local music store. It’s another really fun, soulful album — vocally, harmonically, musically outstanding. I remember lying on my bedroom floor and studying the lyrics, mesmerized for hours. I loved the singles, but my favorites were the opening track, “Thank You,” and the last track, their gorgeous, soul-grabbing rendition of The Beatles’ “Yesterday.” I was just learning about harmony at the time, and loved listening to their rich, thick, beautiful sound.
