Ten On Tuesday

Today’s Ten On Tuesday suggestion comes from Maddie of A Peony For My Thoughts. I thought it would be an easy one and I love when one of these lists comes together quickly. Turns out, it was really hard. Not because it was difficult to come up with 10 but because I had such a hard time limiting myself to 10. So I didn’t. But anyway, the topic is: 10 Albums I Love. And by love, what Maddie and I mean are, albums where you listen to every.single.song. Ready?

    If anyone is allowed to break ToT rules it’s you! The list I started had several of the albums you listed, but there was always one song that made me cross it off (Richard Cory and Darcy Farrow). Guess I’m just too picky. :-)

    Fantastic list Carole! And, great topic Maddie! I had so much fun with this one. There was much internal debate over a list of just 10! Thanks!

    This sounded really hard at first. Who listens to whole albums?! Turns out my problem was like yours. There are some deep Jimmy Buffet cuts that are not party music but absolutely beautiful. Limiting this is the challenge!

    Yep. Every.Single.Song. I thought about some of the albums you have listed — but we have not one duplicate on our lists. Fun topic. :-)

    Good list, but where’s the gospel music and old Motown? Otis Redding, Tammi Terrell & Marvin Gaye. . .

    your list includes a few of mine (Billy Joel, Elton John) and a few that are brand new to me. It’s been a long time since I listened to an album…but back in the day, it was all we did!

    Finding ten was sooo hard! I think I listed about 21 through my post that could have made the cut.
    I miss rifling through stacks in record shops. I heard a lovely interview with a record store owner this week. Talking about the upsurge in people who are buying vinyl again – they’re worried they’ll break a computer and lose their music collection.

    Hi Carole – I’ve been a lurker for some time enjoying your blog, but not commenting. Your TOT is always fun. Since I don’t have a blog, I wanted to add my 10 albums here…in no particular order:
    Blue Alert – Anjani
    Blue – Joni Mitchell
    Everything Stops for Tea – Long John Baldry
    John Barleycorn Must Die – Traffic
    Bad Education soundtrack
    All About My Mother soundtrack
    Tumbleweed Connection – Elton John
    Tudo Historias – Eros Ramazzotti
    Profile: Best of Emmylou Harris – Emmylou Harris
    Give It Up – Bonnie Raitt

    Thanks for letting me play along!

    Ooh, yeah, I should have included Abbey Road on my list. I don’t know most Beatles songs as albums (rather, I know them from my family’s road trip mixtapes), but I DO know Abbey Road.
