  • Re: USCHO Music Thread: We All Have A Crush On Shirley Manson

    To go top 10, even top 20, it's tough. Depends on the mood of that day, or your stage of life...one prob has a top 50 overall, no ranking, just 50 NEED albums.....
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        I cannot be constrained to 10. My tastes have evolved well beyond these and nothing below is from music I learned to love from high school forward, but I think this summarizes the foundation.

        The Rolling Stones – Exile
        Styx – The Grand Illusion

        The Allman Brothers Band – At Fillmore East
        Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
        Lynyrd Skynyrd – Street Survivors

        Van Halen - Van Halen
        Led Zeppelin - IV
        AC/DC - Highway to Hell
        Cheap Trick - Dream Police
        KISS - Destroyer
        Funkadelic - One Nation Under a Groove
        Van Morrison – Astral Weeks
        Prince - Controversy

        R.E.M. – Reckoning

          That one came to mind as well, but Dream Police was in my first Columbia catalog set.

          I slightly redid my list - I tried to keep it to my earliest years which omits a lot of very influential music as I got older. A lot of artists that I love dearly didn't make the list - especially some of the more obscure acts.

            I think mine might have had it too! I'm not joking! Along with Breakfast in America and probably some Kansas album. And ELO!

              I imagine we’ll probably be hearing some CSNY today.
              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                  I am almost positive Breakfast in America was in mine too along with Little River Band, Boston and Yes.

                    Mine definitely had Boston.

                    At 16 I hadn't found Yes yet. A toast to you.

                          My dad gave me Dark Side of the Moon and Frampton Comes Alive as presents for Christmas of '76. I still have one of them.

                            I'll be honest, I think the absence of Columbia House and BMG and whatever other "clubs" there were for music is a real loss for today's generation. They've got their streaming services and whatever else, but I thought those clubs were fun.

                              Had a bad youth.

                              Boston's first album
                              Elton John- Captain fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy
                              Kiss-Alive
                              Kansas- Point of Know Return
                              King Crimson-Discipline
                              The Clash-London Calling
                              Elvis Costello-Armed Forces
                              The Replacements- Let it be
                              The Waterboys-A Pagan Place
                              Blue Rodeo- Nowhere to Here

                              Bonus
                              Wilco- Being There

                              I got armed Forces while still in HS, and London Calling during my freshman year of college, but the one album that marked my transition from my high school of mostly Journey/Styx/Foreignor/Kansas/ BOC/Steve Miller/Kiss vein of classic rock was that King Crimson album. Saw them on an ABC network alternative to SNL called Fridays(where I first saw Michael Richards, also) and never been the same since.

                                Fridays was awesome. I remember watching the show for the musical artists almost as much as for the comedy.
