Favorite Albums

I'm not going to claim these are the best albums of all time, but they are my favorites.  In no particular order:

1 - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill - Lauryn Hill

2 - Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd

3 - Breakaway - Kelly Clarkson

4 - An Innocent Man - Billy Joel

5 - Glass Houses - Billy Joel

6 - The Stranger - Billy Joel

7 - II - Led Zeppelin

8 - Tidal - Fiona Apple

9 - The Wall - Pink Floyd

10 - When the Pawn - Fiona Apple

This really does not reflect my love of Jazz or Country music, but these are the albums that I have listened to over and over and not just for a year or two but consistently, sometimes for decades.

I thought this list was going to be a lot easier to make than it was.  It even spawned two more lists found below.  If you decide to do this post on your blog, which you should, be forewarned that it will waste several hours of your time.

You really can't go wrong with any Billy Joel, Fiona Apple, Pink Floyd, Kelly Clarkson, Beatles, or Led Zeppelin album.


1 - Legend - Bob Marley & The Wailers

2 - Greatest Hits - Red Hot Chili Peppers

3 - Greatest Hits - The Mamas & The Papas

4 - Greatest Hits: HIStory Vol. 1 - Michael Jackson

5 - Echoes - Pink Floyd

6 - Greatest Hits - Queen

7 - 1 - The Beatles

8 - The Immaculate Collection - Madonna

9 - Keeps Getting Better - Christina Aguilera

10 - Definitive Collection - Stevie Wonder

Other favorite artists are Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, Sara Barielles, Feist, Diamond Rio, No Doubt, Erasure, Ella Fitzgerald, Herbie Hancock, Bing Crosby, Dido, Alicia Keys, Rob Thomas, Maroon 5, U2, Elton John, Dixie Chicks, Pearl Jam, The Doors, and Nora Jones.

Quickly off the top of my head (noting that since I've been married music has become less and less kept up with in my life) I love the You've Got Mail soundtrack, most of Jimmy Eat World and Ben Fold's Five's albums, Foo Fighters and The Get Up Kids and Juliana Theory (can't think of the album titles at the moment).

(I also posted on Facebook, but thought I'd post here too!)

oh man I don't even know where I would begin!!! There are so many great singles, but a whole album is harder to accomplish. One of my totally random favorites is Supertramp's Breakfast in America Album. Anything by the Beatles and Michael Jackson. Soundtracks I love would include The Nightmare Before Christmas, the first Twilight Soundtrack (don't knock it till you try it!), and Footloose. On the other end of the spectrum, I love Lady Gaga's The Fame. And finally, whether or not you want to call them soundtracks they are still great works of music - Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Beethoven's 5th (too obvious) and Josquin des Prez's Missa Pange Lingua (if you ever have an hour to yourself to relax/meditate, listen to it!!) you're right, I could spend HOURS thinking about this!
