I know, because of the comments from last week, that many of you enjoy reading…
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?
- Rumours by Fleetwood Mac
- Abbey Road by The Beatles
- Storm Front by Billy Joel
- Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen
- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John
- Past the Point of Rescue by Hal Ketchum
- Infamous Angel by Iris Dement
- Live at Fenway Park by Jimmy Buffett
- The Wildlife Concert by John Denver
- The Definitive Collection by Kathy Mattea
- Thriller by Michael Jackson
- Sounds of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel
- Strange Things Happening by Sleepy LaBeef
- Classic Yes by Yes
I’m sorry, I broke my own rules but I just couldn’t identify an album on that list that didn’t deserve to be included. So, whateverrr. Right? I hope you all had an easy time with this week’s topic. Please include a link to your list below. And remember, you can join this weekly meme anytime but subscribing to the email list here.

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 one! We are the last generation to even call a music release an album. OTOH we got to have album art. Win-win.
I will be adding some new albums to my playlist!! 😉
A few artists I don’t know on your list. I will remedy that soon!
Wasn’t it hard to choose just ten??
You’ve got some great dance music and many iconic albums, too!
Whatever is exactly right. It’s your blog and you’re sticking to it!
Good list, but where’s the gospel music and old Motown? Otis Redding, Tammi Terrell & Marvin Gaye. . .
So fun! You’ve got a couple on there I’ve not heard of either. I must check them out!
What??? No Tapestry album by Carole King???????? 🙂
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.
