Okay, Arlee Bird at Tossing it out is holding this blog fest. I have to choose 15 albums that are my favourites, or have special meaning to me.
I love music. I listen to music while I write. Music inspires me. I have two full ipods! I also have very eclectic tastes. Oh, and there are some days when only angst music will do. :)
1. Muse. All of their albums.
I thought it would be a bit of a con to have an almost an entire list of Muse albums. But love them lyrically, musically, the works.
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers: The Greatest Hits
I wanted to say all of their albums, but I won't. So I shall just have this one. Another awesome memory was seeing them live for the Stadium Arcadium tour.
3. Panic At The Disco.
I love the stories within their lyrics.
4. Meat Loaf: Bat Out Of Hell
This is a parental influence choice. I grew up listening to a lot of different music and this was one of them.
5. Jeff Wayne: The War Of The Worlds.
As was this too. I still love it though.
6. Queen: The Greatest Hits.
Dad, your musical influence has had more of an effect on me than I realised. :)
7. Madonna: The Immaculate Collection.
When I first started to get into music for myself, Madonna was waiting for me.
8. Green Day: American Idiot.
Happy times at the Leeds Music Festival in 2004. Amazing weather, junk food, sleeping in a tent and listening to amazing bands.
9. My Chemical Romance: The Black Parade.
A concept album done in an amazing way.
10. Kings Of Leon: Only By The Night.
11. Bon Jovi: Crossroads.
I know, it's a con having a greatest hits again but this was my first Bon Jovi album. I guess I'm a little nostalgic.
12. Paramore: Riot.
13. Take That: The Ultimate Collection.
They may not have touched the U.S. as much as here in the U.K, but Take That are a HUGE part of my early teen years. Happy memories.
14. Lostprophets: Liberation Transmission.
Some great tracks on here.
15. Linkin Park: Meteora.
Two of my favourite songs are Numb and Breaking the Habit.
Wow, that was really hard. I haven't even got half of the artists or albums I love on here.
That's me done. But, if you have time, check out some of the other participants at the linky on the top of the page.
