Twenty-Five Albums

Got this Facebook meme from SarahK and loved the idea... and loved that she also cross-posted it onto her blog. So I'm doing the same.

Think of 25 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 how they were thought of -- musically shaped your world. When you finish, tag 25 others, including me. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good.

No being cool, which albums have you actually listened to thousands of times?

Here are mine, in no particular order:

--The Beatles, Abbey Road
--J. S. Bach, The Brandenburg Concertos
--Bruce Hornsby & The Range, The Way It Is
--DC Talk, Intermission
--Bruce Springsteen, Born In The USA
--G. F. Handel, Messiah

--The soundtrack to the original Charlotte's Web animated movie
--P.O.D., Satellite
--Bonnie Raitt, Nick of Time
--Queen, Greatest Hits
--Hank Williams, 40 Greatest Hits
--Brad Paisley, Time Well Wasted
--Eagles, Hotel California
--Hall & Oates, Private Eyes
--John Denver, Rocky Mountain High
--Linda Ronstadt, What's New
--Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
--DeGarmo & Key, Rock Solid
--Petra, More Power To Ya
