MUSIC: Fifteen Albums In Fifteen Minutes You've Heard That Will Always Stick With You

I got this on Facebook from an old friend of mine, so I thought I'd post it here. - OlderMusicGeek

The rules: Don't take too long to think about it - choose fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

In no particular order except the order I remembered them...

1. Q: Are We Not Men? - Devo (introduced me to alternative music)
2. Drunken Lullabies - Flogging Molly (showed me i could still go crazy about a band like I did in my teens and 20's)
3. Outlandos D'Amour - The Police (the soundtrack of my high school years... "so-o-o-o-o-o lonely")
4. Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes (soundtrack of my college years and introduction in the greatest band ever with the greatest bassist of rock!)
5. Star Wars soundtrack - John Williams (great soundtrack to a great movie)
6. Never Mind The Bollocks - The Sex Pistols (introduced me to punk)
7. Red Roses For Me - The Pogues (introduced me to celtic punk, was probably the start of it actually!)
8. Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd (great album, but also reminds me of bygone days with my old brother and also hanging out in my college dorm)
9. Tubthumper - Chumbawumba (don't know why, just like it!)
10. Systems Of Romance - Ultravox (just takes me back to hanging out with my younger brother and my two best friends in high school)
11. Pretty In Black - The Raveonettes (introduced me to The Raveonettes, a new band I like - again showed me some good music coming out after I turned 25!)
12. Call Of The West - Wall Of Voodoo (just an interesting band that did an interesting mix of country and new wave, big part of my teens, and probably was the start of me giving some country music a chance)
13. Presidents Of The United States Of America - Presidents Of The United States Of America (taught that pop and alternative music doesn't have to be serious and can just be fun!)
14. The Big Easy soundtrack - various artists (introduced me into the great music form known as cajun/zydeco!
15. Sinister Flower Gift - The Hollowmen (an album by my friend's band in the 80's who I watched countless times in my college years!)

(I cheated, this took more like 25 minutes!)

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
