What albums come to mind when you look back on your teenage years? And if you are a teenager, what do you imagine these will be?<br><br><br><br>
For me- Disintegration by the Cure<br><br>
The Blind Leading the Naked by The Violent Femmes<br><br>
Nothing's Shocking by Jane's Addiction

Ouu, GOOD question!! I remember when I was about 10 or 11 wandering around with "Axis: Bold As Love" trying to get any and everyone to listen to it. I got a bunch of blank stares and condescending sneers while they kept trying to push "Revolver" or Three Dog Night's "Harmony" in my direction. My sister would be blaring "One" on her turntable while I had "Spanish Castle Magic" thumping though my Sony amp and EV speakers (I always had the better stereo <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> ). It's a wonder that my parents survived at all . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
Albums that I still hold in high regard from my adolescence and young adulthood:<br><br><br><br>
Jimi Hendrix: "Electric Ladyland"<br><br>
Black Sabbath: "Paranoid"<br><br>
Beatles: "White Album"<br><br>
Alice Cooper: "Killer"<br><br>
Crosby Stills Nash & Young: "Deja Vu" (A truly timeless classic)<br><br>
Alan Parsons Project: "I Robot"<br><br>
The Cars: "Candy-O"<br><br>
Talking Heads: "Stop Making Sense"<br><br>
The Isley Brothers: "Greatest Hits"<br><br>
Earth Wind & Fire: "Gratitude" (?) (The white covered double live album from the 1970s)<br><br><br><br>
Man, the list is endless, but these surface through my presently foggy state of recollection . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Good question! The first record I ever bought was Michael Jackson's Thriller. The first cd I ever bought was Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction. I also remember listening to Def Leppard - Hysteria quite a bit. All three had a pretty significant impact on my childhood.

Heh.<br><br>
Sugarhill Gang, the Fat Boys, later on LL Cool J and Kool Moe Dee.<br><br><br><br>
I also had a fascination with some hard rock/metal. The Scorpions, Guns'n'Roses (Appetite for Destruction only), and of course, Anthrax.<br><br><br><br>
I also liked...Loverboy. Still not sure why.<br><br><br><br>
Billy Joel and some others, including a little of the Boss and Phil Collins.<br><br><br><br>
I also liked Smokey Robinson for some time.<br><br><br><br>
Ended the late 80s with NWA and Sir Mix-a-lot, with some 2-Live Crew thrown in to boot.

That is something you should never admit to a potential date. Ever. Owning that tape automatically places you in the "gay friend" category. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I saw Phantom of the Opera just before I turned 13 and for several years after that I listened to nothing but show tunes. I loved (and still love) Les Miserables, The Secret Garden, Cats, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Miss Saigon, Into the Woods, Beauty and the Beast, Bye Bye Birdie, Godspell, Grease, Anything Goes...I love the drama of theater.<br><br><br><br>
I still like musicals but now I also enjoy listening to women with guitars and pianos.

Sabbath-Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Ozzy-Diary of a Madman,Bad Co-Bad Co, Robin Trower-Bridge of Sighs, Peter Frampton-Frampton Comes Alive, Led Zep-Houses of the Holy, Dio-Holy Diver, Boston-their first one, and Def Lep-Pyromania. The first album I ever purchased was KISS Double Platnum..I used to pretend like I was playing the drums on it while I jammed. I collected the trading cards too where there was a puzzle picture on the other side of each card. If you had all of the cards it made this huge KISS picture. I had all of the cards (same with the Charlie's Angel's cards)...I wish I still had them both. I think my mom threw them out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Oh Ruthie, classics one and all <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> In particular I should have mentioned Bridge of Sighs myself, I STILL find myself listening to that one, along with the first one, Twice Removed from Yesterday. I still have the albums somewhere though I just don't do vinyl anymore. I picked up this cd a couple of years ago which has both on one disc and it still finds it's way into my deck on a regular basis. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br><br><br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2518815050&category=1055" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...&category=1055</a>

We were livin' in a daydream...ohhhh, spellbound...<br><br><br><br>
Yep, they don't make music like that anymore do they. I still play it from time to time too. That's how you know it's a classic. Tunes that can withhold the test of time.

Yes Indeed! I think they should induct him into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame IMO. His work is very moving. I have so very good memories of times spent while listening to Trower.<br><br><br><br>
Word: Anyone who hasn't a clue what Bank and I are talking about you just absolutely have to find some way to listen to Robert Trower..your musical life is not complete until you do <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

During my adolescence, the alternative music scene really was alternative...and I was heavily into it. There was a radio program called "The Edge" that I listened to every night. (Except for Sundays, when "The Fear Of Music" came on. The music on that program was just *too* weird, even for me...which is odd, because I actually thought Ween was amusing. ^^;; )<br><br><br><br>
Some of my favorite artists (and some were more popular than others) were:<br><br><br><br>
The Smashing Pumpkins<br><br>
Belly<br><br>
The Jellyfish<br><br>
Pearl Jam (but only the early stuff)<br><br>
Soundgarden (again, only the early stuff)<br><br><br><br>
There were a lot more that I honestly don't remember now...I actually listened to the radio a lot, and didn't always know who sang my favorite songs.
