Albums You Know By Heart

Doug over at Coffeeswirls has a post about his top albums after he read the Top 500 Albums of all time. His list has a lot harder rock than I listened to.

Yes, I know, this post does two things. One, it dates me. Yes, I called them albums, not CDs. Two, I forget. Probably related to how old I am.

If you’re 40’ish, you might remember listening to albums like I did. I’d sop by the music store and pick up an album I wanted, carry it home carefully on my bike, take off the cellophane from the cardboard square, and marvel at the shiny black vinyl with the unscratched grooves.

Although I listen to these artists rarely anymore, they were my favorite back then. Not only did I know all the lyrics, but I could also hum all the instrumentals.

Here were some of my favorites in no particular order:
Three fine Queen albums giving you classics like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “Somebody to Love.”


Billy Joel’s “The Stranger” was the best album he had. The older he got, the harder he got. I liked his early stuff best.


Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America” has some wonderful rhyming lyrics.

What were some of your favorite albums?
