Twenty Albums

The Music Of A Lifetime

Earl, over at The Verdant Dude, turned me onto this Meme. Usually I dispise Memes, but this one seemed to have some merit.

Think of 20 albums, CDs, LPs (if you’re over 40), that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life. Dug into your soul. Music that brought you to life when you heard it. Royally affected you, kicked you in the wazoo, literally socked you in the gut, is what I mean. Then when you finish, tag 15 others (yeah, not doing that), including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill

1 Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band - Beatles
2 Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin
3 Countdown to Exstacy - Steely Dan
4 Chicago II - Chicago
5 Razamenaz - Nazereth
6 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
7 The Blue Brothers - The Blues Brothers
8 Sandinista - The Clash
9 Aja - Steely Dan
10 Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
11 Avalon - Roxy Music
12 The Tales of Hoffman - Jacques Offenbach (with Beverly Sills - Soprano)
13 Beethoven's 9th Symphony - Ludwig von Beethoven (Performed by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karijan)
14 Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin
15 Quadrophenia - The Who
16 The White Album - The Beatles
17 Yellow Submarine - The Beatles (Soundtrack - more George Martin than the Beatles)
18 American Beauty - Thomas Newman (Soundtrack)
19 The Road to Perdition - Thomas Newman (Soundtrack)
20 The Altogether - Orbital

That just about sums it up.....Party On Wayne....Party On Garth
