Tu(n)esday: 12...

Seriously, how long has it been since I've done a meme? Like wayyyyyyyyyy too long.

I was tagged by a Facebook friend named Blaine to do this. Don't worry, I told him I'd do it on my blog instead of on the Bookface.

Rules of the Game: Copy this and post as your status update blog post but delete my list. List 12 albums in no particular order that made a lasting impression on you, but only one (1) per band/artist. Don't take long and don't think hard. Tag 12 friends to do the same, including me, so I can see what you listed. No compilations.

My list!

  • Run D.M.C. - Raising Hell - my introduction to hip-hop and rap.
  • Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet - the first time I was politicized by music.

  • Michael Jackson - Thriller - probably one of the first pop albums I ever listened to.
  • U2 - War - nothing U2 can do will ever beat their early albums.
  • Alice in Chains - Dirt - my discovery that there is music beyond hair metal.
  • Urge Overkill - Saturation - I can't even begin to explain how much I love this album.
  • Bruce Springsteen - 1984 - one of the first pop albums I ever owned.
  • Prince - 1999 - need I say anything at all?
  • Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes - introduced by a girl I was friends with. Really opened up my world.
  • David Bowie - Hunky Dory - "Life on Mars?" is still my favorite Bowie track ever.
  • Van Halen - OU812 - I can't count the number of hours spent listening to this and trying to play Eddie's riffs on guitar. It didn't work out so well.
  • Living Colour - Vivid - Wow. Just wow. And it holds up incredibly well for 28 years old. I still listen to this eclectic mix of rock, metal, and funk on a regular basis.

I'm a rule breaker. I don't tag people. So do it on your blog if you're so inclined or just let me know in a comment what you would choose.

As tough as last week's challenge photo was, I still had a correct guess amidst some really creative ones. That's what makes this game fun. Here you go... What about this photo? It's quite artsy.

I've got one thing to say about this... ... balls.

Hmmmm I'm trying to think of an album that made a lasting impression on me but can't really think of any. Not that I never liked any albums, but nothing in particular jumps.

I'd very much suck at making this kind of list!


Not even one?


Nope. Not one! Two of my favorite artists are Beck and Foo Fighters but no specific albums of their's that made a lasting impression.
