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.
Should be easy, no? I promise not to look at my list of 100 favorite albums list first.
- This Are Two Tone – Various
- The Ultimate Otis Redding
- Folk Song and Minstelry – Various
- Belafonte at Carnegie Hall
- May I Sing With Me – Yo La Tengo
- The Beatles (White Album)
- Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World – Johnny Clegg & Savuka
- Ágætis Byrjun – Sigur Rós
- Lincoln – They Might Be Giants
- Free to Be You & Me – Marlo Thomas & Friends
- Intersections – Maus
- Tanglewood Tree – Dave Carter and Tracey Grammer
- Channel 1 – Various
- Doolittle – The Pixies
- Rum, Sodomy & The Lash – The Pogues
There’s a little method to my madness. In addition to a few of my all-time favorites that I keep coming back to I picked out some albums I remember introducing me to a new band, new sound, or new genre and thus changing my musical tastes. At any rate I did this in much less than fifteen minutes so I’m sure it’s not representative.
