My Facebook friend, Joanna Anello Davis sent me this note. Here is my version. Feel free to use the comment section to post your list.
THE RULES: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you’ve heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what albums my friends choose. NO GREATEST HITS OR COMPILATIONS. I added that part at the end.
Beatles White Album
The Who Quadrophenia
Rolling Stones Let it Bleed
REM Automatic for the People
Prince Sign of the Times
George Michael Listen without Prejudice
Green Day American Idiot
Ben Folds Rockin THe Suburbs
Radiohead The Bends
Muse Black Holes and Revelations
AC/DC Highway to Hell
Bruce Springsteen The Rising
Elvis Costello King of America
Crowded House Temple of the Lowmen
I could make a cooler list but these were the 15 that I thought of. It took me 10 minutes. I’m sure if I put more thought into it, I could come up with 10 different records on this list.
