KeepsMeAlive‘s Challenge: Top 15 Albums on the 15th
Aaron at KMA has invited bloggers to post their Top 15 Albums Of All Time on September 15. KMA will link to as many as possible.
The only rule is it has to be your Top 15 Of All Time, not as defined by industry magazines, critics, friends, etc. After that, there are no rules.
° Original studio albums (excluding re-issues/deluxe/live/compilations/etc.)
° Songwriting (in addition to performing)
° Time-tested for 15+ years
° My USB drive is on fire and I’m about to be ejected from the spaceship…which 15 albums do I bring to listen to until the end of time?
My Top 15 Albums Of All Time:
15. Willie Dixon: Willie’s Blues, 1959.
14. Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee: Sonny & Brownie, 1973.
13. Heart: Dreamboat Annie, 1975.
12. The Cramps: Big Beat from Badsville, 1997.
11. Van Halen: Van Halen, 1978.
10. The Cult: Love, 1985.
9. Kiss: Dynasty, 1979.
8. Bruce Springsteen: Darkness on the Edge of Town, 1978.
7. Wilson Pickett: It’s Too Late, 1963.
6. Eagles: Eagles, 1972.
5. Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers, 1971.
4. The Band: The Band, 1969.
3. Sam Cooke: The Wonderful World of Sam Cooke, 1965.
2. Led Zeppelin: Houses of the Holy, 1973.
1. AC/DC: T.N.T., 1975.
This is the best album list ever, yes? What’s that?
“How can you include ____ and not ____?”
“Who is Wilson Pickett?”
“Dude! You picked the wrong Kiss album!”
“AC/DC is #1? All three chords?”
You know what to do. 🙂
