ALBUMS THAT HAVE STAYED WITH ME…..FOREVER

THE LIST OF ALBUMS THAT HAVE STAYED WITH ME…….from the day that I first heard them to the day you are reading this blog….and I promise you they will be with me…FOREVER


Today on Facebook someone sent me this:

“Rules: in your status update, list 10 albums (not in any order) that have stayed with you over the years in some way. Don’t take too long on this list – just a few minutes, tops. These don’t need to be “great” records, just records that have meant something to you personally. Then tag ten (or more!) other friends, including me so that I’ll see your list. I chose people who I thought would go along. If I didn’t choose you, and you’re interested, by all means respond.”

WELL I tried and had 10 albums from just the 90s so I figured I would do this by periods in my life.  And maybe once in a while I will toss in a story to show you why.

Also, I will put various album covers next to some of them because they are just amazing album covers or REALLY special to me and I have those framed at my house…or BOTH
 

And yes I found a way to have GNR, Zeppelin and Michael Jackson together.

 

 

ALSO, to make this easier lets get the OBVIOUS out of the way.  These are the albums that EVERYONE should have in their library.  And there was a time where I was convinced that the record companies were mailing these to everyone because EVERYONE had a copy. 

AC/DC – Back In Black (1980)

Alanis Morrisette – Jagged Little Pill (1995)
Def Leppard – Pyromania (1983)
Pyromania
Guns N Roses – Appetite for Destruction (1987)
Led Zeppelin – I (1969)
Led Zeppelin – II (1969)

Led Zeppelin IV (1971)

Metallica – Metallica (Black album) (1991)
Michael Jackson – Thriller (1982)
Nirvana – Nevermind (1991)
Nevermind
Pearl Jam – Ten (1991)
Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon (1973)
Pink Floyd – The Wall (1979)
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik (1991)

U2 – Joshua Tree (1987)

And you might see some of these again if I have a story about one of them.

DISCLAIMER:  THIS IS MY LIST ALONG WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS WHO I CONSIDER KNOWLEDGEABLE IN THE WORLD OF MUSIC.  WITH THAT SAID, THESE ARE ALBUMS WHICH MANY OF YOU, IF NOT ALL OF YOU, KNOW OR ARE FAMILIAR WITH.  

PLEASE DO NOT TRY AND ACT ULTRA COOL BY SAYING “Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)” by Digable Planets OR “Flipped Out in Singapore” by Chainsaw Kittens are albums that moved you otherwise you look like an elitist jerk dick.

AND its ok to LIKE some of the more popular albums even if you were sipping Starbucks or hating the govt.

FIRST watch this…..laugh as it’s one of if not my favorite skit from In Living Color…. 

OK NOW!!!….lets go
