The 15 Album Meme

I stole this from Owen’s Blog

Internet Meme– The list of albums
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.

Here is my list…

  1. Fishbone- Truth and Soul
  2. Paul Simon- Graceland
  3. Pink Floyd- The Wall
  4. The Last 5 Years– Jason Robert brown
  5. Return to the Forbidden Planet– Original London Cast
  6. A New Brain –William Finn
  7. REM- Out of Time
  8. The Killers- Hot Fuss
  9. U2- Achtung Baby
  10. Poi Dog Pondering –Wishing like a Mountain, Thinking Like the Sea
  11. The Cure- Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
  12. Pulp Fiction– Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
  13. They Might Be Giants- Flood
  14. Tori Amos-Little Earthquakes
  15. The Indigo Girls- Rites of Passage

I kept with Owen’s rule of only listing one album from a musical artist or group.  Many of these groups I own several of their albums.  Some of the albums listed don’t even reflect some of the band’s best work, but they remind me of a particular time in my life.  Some of these songs wrapped around me like blanket during the dark times; others were the soundtrack for major events in my life.  Either way, whenever I hear them I am instantly transported back in time to those moments.

  1. Oh my goodness, looking at your list I realized I didn’t put down any Indigo Girls. That and Phish were my Bradley years. But I totally relate to linking memories/ time periods with certain albums. It makes me wonder what our kids will listen to and think fondly of when they are older.
