The Monks - Bad Habits followed closely by REO Speedwagon Hi Infidelity (can you tell I was an teen in the 80's?)

Donna Summer, Bad Girls. It was the first 45 I ever owned. I think the B side was a duet with Barbra Streisand. Oh now I have to GooGle.

Andy and Company. Andy Williams with guests, including the Osmond Brothers before they made any of their own albums. Probably 1965/66, when I was just a toddler. Still have it. :)

There are 2 that I always go back to, in times of joy and in times of pain and stress: The Beatles, The White Album; Carole King, Tapestry. I wanna throw in U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind. Jeez, I'm not sure that's the title?

Anyhoo...today is The White Album. I am off the grid for the time being. I'll be *in* when I can. I'm jonesing bad for my word games and CDAN!

thegreatdanadane said...

New Edition - first album

Karen said...

@Sherry, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is one of my favorite songs!

One CD that I never get tired of listening to is Cross Canadian Ragweed's Soul Gravy. I can't describe how good it makes me feel to listen to it.

Unknown said...

White Light, White Heat, White Trash - Social Distortion
Slippery When Wet - Bon Jovi (NJ girl right hurrr)

Hootspa said...

He'd hate me for saying it, but Todd Rundgren's "I Saw the Light." Pure power pop that always makes me happy.

Lucas said...

Okay, here's my top three using "record" the same as "album":

Team Dresch - Personal Best
Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Counting Crows - August and Everything After

If we're doing "record" Grammy-style:

Counting Crows - Good Time

Pip said...

Tori Amos-Little Earthquakes and Boys for Pele,
Pele is a masterpiece imo. Little Earthquakes helped change, and save in a sense, my life (sounds cliche, but oh well!).

I'm also obsessed with The Idler Wheel by Fiona Apple

MnGddess said...

Pip said...

What's the difference between record and album?

@Jason Blue Eyes

Blonde On Blonde? I think I love you. I may drag out the old turntable tonite, find that album & Highway 61 Revisited & remember good times.

OKay said...

Monks - Bad Habits
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

I actually like John Mayer's new album. I just pretend he doesn't exist without a guitar in his hand.

Bluezz said...

@MojoBellaMama OMG! The Wedding Album! I thought I was the only who knew about that album. I love it!

Do you have it on vinyl? Mine is still in pristine condition even tho it was played so much.

Ok. I seriously have to walk away from this thread. I have done jackshit today except read, post & go down memory lane with all the music listed.

The kitchen calls & I will be grooving & dancing to Leon & Mary singing, "Fantasy," "Satisfy You" & a little "Lavender Blue (Dilly Dilly)".

I promise to close my blinds so I don't scare the neighbors. HA!

Thanks for always lightening up my heart while I'm here, you guys.

Adios, Muchachos & Muchachas! :-)

Alejandro Escovedo - Everything and now Real Animal

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I don't think I can pick just one...there's way too many out there. One I haven't seen listed yet, though:
Bob Mould--Workbook

califblondy said...

OMG I loved the Stayin' Alive soundtrack, I have it on cassette tape :). Frank wrote several great songs, but was overshadowed by the BeeGees. Cynthia Rhodes had a great voice.

califblondy said...

Was it Enough Is Enough?

Ramone Love said...

Sinatra at the Sands

Erik said...

Exile on Main Street.

Lindsey said...

It's not really fair to pick a compilation, but I can't narrow it down, so I say The Essential Bruce Springsteen
:)

cheesey.burrito.whore said...

OMG...music is my Abilify! I can't pick one...Tom Petty, Billy Joel, The. Clash, NIN, Bowling For Soup, Sublime, Everclear, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Queen, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, David Allan Coe...lol, eclectic music taste. And for the record, Johnny Cash and David Allan Coe aren't country, they're COOL.

OneGirlRevolution said...

@reese...I actually love the songs of All That You Can't Leave Behind more than Joshua Tree. I chose Joshua Tree though because it was their seminal album that not only brought worldwide acclaim and awards but was the first to show off their musical maturation and a coming into
their own. Boy and War (and even October) were great albums in many respects but lack the lyrical and musical maturity of Joshua Tree.

(says the U2 superfan)

mooshki said...

Women's High Jump. Rome, 1987.

Interplanet Janet said...

Yes - Going for the One

Persiaa said...

It's a toss up between Cream/Disraeli Gears or Dire Straits/Brothers in Arms.

Nothanksdarlin said...

I too go through phases but I always love
Dear You- Jawbreaker
4 AM Friday- Avail
And so many more, lots listed above.
My all time favorite love dong ever in the world is I Believe by Stevie Wonder though

Stacey Charter said...

going with the record meaning album my answer would be Counting Crows - August and Everything After.

Record meaning single song? In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

Bangagong said...

If record= song, then Voyage to Atlantis by the Isley Brothers.

If record= album, then Eat at Whitey's by Everlast and When the Pawn... by Fiona Apple.

Doris Mann said...

Cyndi Lauper, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

Bunnyears! said...

Tears For Fears-Songs From the Big Chair

Tanya said...

Too many to choose from but top albums on a desert island:

Why Something Instead of Nothing-Polarbear
Nothing's Shocking-Jane's Addiction
The Unforgettable Fire-U2
Dry-PJ Harvey
Rio-Duran Duran

LaLa said...

Downward Spiral, Nine Inch Nails.

jvanchicago said...

Will narrow down to two:
Alanis Morissette-Jagged Little Pill (that blind item be damned!)
and
Jeff Buckley-Grace (Last Goodbye is my jam!)

Unknown said...

FNM!! Love me some Mike Patton!!

Unknown said...

What's the alanis morissette blind item?

jvanchicago said...

I guess during some award presentation, a fan traveled a long distance to see Alanis. She allegedly ignored the person and was upset about the low turnout, or something of that sort. This blind was revealed I think on New Year's, but the comments that day were more interesting, if I recall correctly.

zeldafitzgerald said...

Exile on Main Street -Rolling Stones

Nothanksdarlin said...

Dianna and FNM Mike Patton has the sexiest voice ever. Hands down

El Roy 13 said...

Bob Marley -Talkin' Blues
