  • Life Changing Music (stolen from facebook)

    8 mars 2009, 1h41m

    Think of 15 albums, CDs, LPs (if you're over 40) that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life. Dug into your soul. Music that brought you to life when you heard it. Royally affected you, kicked you in the wazoo, literally socked you in the gut, is what I mean. Then when you finish, tag 15 others, including moi. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you're it!

    Not in any particular order:
    1. Joy Division // Unknown Pleasures
    2. Stiff Little Fingers // Inflammable Material
    3. The Fugees // The Score
    4. Siouxsie and the Banshees // Juju
    5. The Smiths // The Queen Is Dead
    6. Eric Dolphy // Out to Lunch
    7. Massive Attack // Mezzanine
    8. Lauryn Hill // The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
    9. Zero 7 // Simple Things
    10. Thelonious Monk // Monk's Dream
    11. Elliott Smith // XO
    12. Sondre Lerche // Faces Down
    13. Bad Religion // All Ages
    14. Beirut // Gulag Orkestar
    15. Air // Talkie Walkie

    I did this a kinda fast... I'm a little afraid I overlooked something.
