Newton slept on my hands - must've been seeking bonus warmth, or he was jealous of my rubbing BHK's arm.
meme-time - snagged from SeanThink of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of musically shaped your world. When you finish, tag 15 others, including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you're it!
Here is my list, narrowed to 15.
(Scotto isn't tagging anyone, but is happy to see any other entries)
Let's see... this could be fairly tricky - I'm not sure of music that changed me forever... I've never really been one of those folks to play the same album over and over again... a few that come to mind -
Stuff that was significant to me, and I still dig -
1. Beach boys - I went through a major Beach Boys phase as a kid - Pet Sounds
was something that got a lot of play both in my home and on my walkman. The album still cheers me up quite a lot.
2. Beatles - Yellow Submarine
/ Octopus's Garden
(not really an album, but the first music I had as a kid.. that I remember. It wasn't even the Beatles, it was the Sesame Street Version) If I had to pick an actual Beatles album, I really liked Rubber Soul.
3. Talking Heads - Little Creatures
Great album - started me on that Band, and despite the "art student snob" aspect, I really like 'em.
4. Tubes - Outside Inside
Got this form a yard sale - I was very pleasantly surprised. (Wild Women of Wongo is what got me to drop 25¢ for it. ) I figure I've gotten well worth my penny a play just for that track.
5. ELO - Time
- first Album bought with my own money, played a *lot*
6. Steve Martin - A Wild And Crazy Guy
Not really a music album, though it had banjo and The KingTut single.
7. B-52s - Whammy
Discovered them late - mostly via gaming with Ray & Kat. (Specifically for Trism)
8. Zombies - Odessey and Oracle
This one keeps coming back, and I love it every time. (Most recently for "This will be our year")
9. XTC - Oranges and Lemons
So Sue me... I like Mayor of Simpleton.
10. They Might Be Giants - Lincoln
I first heard them on Dr. Demento when I was in High School - I've been hooked since. Hard to believe it's been 20 years+
11. Genesis - Selling England by the Pound
Very different stuff than the Phil Collins-centric bits in later years. It may be my all-time fave Genesis Album.
12. Chuck Mangione - Chase the Clouds Away - One of the five 8-track tapes I had for my first car, the blue bomber. played repeatedly, because we only had 5 albums, and eventually the AC/DC and Beach Boys tapes wore out.
13. Rusted root - When I Woke
- first really fun time with the hippies - post concert. I like them quite a lot.
14. Poi Dog Pondering - Poi Dog Pondering - "and I said YEAH!" - discovered by accident. Thanks, tape-traders in college!
15. Queen - Flash Gordon Soundtrack
- FLASH ! AHAHHHHH! HE'LL SAVE EVERY ONE OF US!
