Guns and Roses - Appetite for Destruction
Paul McCartney - Give My Regards to Broadstreet
Billy Joel - Greatest Hits Volume 1 and 2
The Alarm - Strength
Barenaked Ladies - Gordon

These are probably my 5 longest serving albums in my collection. I fad on others and it doesn't mean these are my absolute favourites as that list changes at any given moment but these have always been in the car, in the MP3 player or near to the stereo.


Race Winner
Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell
Garth Brooks - In Pieces
The Three Degrees - Greatest Hits
Queen - Greatest Hits
Top Gun Soundtrack

They would be my top 5 most listened to albums over the years I'd say.

for me im guessing
Ella Eyre - Feline
Taylor Swift - 1989
Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
Foo Fighters - Greatest Hits
Now thats what i call Christmas - if im being honest Christmas album probally must be on there. for amount we probally hear them every yr

yeah i am quite poppy person. which can get me a bit of stick with friends & colleagues at work. espically when taylor swift released new song last month :D but yes for me i think George ezra, Lady gaga, Queen, Foxes probally just missed out. but i went for what i can remember the most in the car

Daniil Kvyat Fan. Alfa Romeo Fan.
Psychedelic Furs - Talk, Talk, Talk
Pink Floyd - Animals
Led Zeppelin - In Through The Out Door (yes, really, it's my guilty pleasure, all Plant & John Paul Jones)
Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables
Crass - The Feeding Of The 5000

All on vinyl, CDs are not albums.

An honest (and not very trendy) listing:

1. Ian and Sylvia: Early Morning Rain
2. Leadbelly: Blood Letters and Bad Men
3. John Prine: his first album (John Prine)

These are kind of the big three. They are the only albums I learned every song on. There is a lot of other albums from many genres I have listened to intently, but no others that I so completely absorbed.

I want to edit my list.

Remove The Three Degrees, and change it to Phil Collins - No Jacket Required.

Oh and I like Pretty In Pink too :thumbsup:

cider_and_toast My daughter is a huge BNL fan, she has all their albums so I've heard their stuff a lot as well.

I have every BNL album except Barenaked For Christmas which has never really appealed.


Race Winner
Actually it's called Barenaked For The Holidays and my daughter has that. Their version of jingle bells is hilarious I will admit

That's the one.

I do have:

Maybe you should drive
Born on a pirate ship
Rock Spectacle
Everything to Everyone
Barenaked Ladies are Men
Barenaked Ladies are Me
All in good time
Grinning Streak
Ladies and Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies and the Persuasions
Fake Nudes

Disc One - the greatest hits
Stop us if you've heard this one before - B sides and rarities etc.

Yeah she has all those plus BNL Rocks Red Rocks, so she said. That is a good one to bake to apparently, it's a live album I'm informed. Plus Hits From Yesterday And The Day Before which is another greatest hits albums.

Mind you she has a lot of Cheap Trick albums too, it's somewhat disconcerting when you see your daughter wearing a top with Cheap Trick written across her chest :rolleyes:

Didn't bother with Yesterday and Today or Red Rocks as they don't really have anything new. Plus, there is no way they will top Rock Spectacle in terms of quality live albums.

Seen them live 3 times so far and understand they have just started work on a new album and another tour to follow.

Happy days.


Points Scorer
