You think you're Cooler Than Me

I can not get that song out of my head!! I heard it once! Just once and picked up the melody immediately and it just loops in my head until I feel I might go insane!

Then Dan snapped me out of it with this challenge THE Fifteen Album Game. And it goes like this ...THE RULES: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.

It took me seven minutes to make this list -

1) Abbey Road - the Beatles
2) Eat a Peach -Allman Brothers Band
3) Tres Hombres - ZZ Topp. This album brings back memories of the year we road around in Terry's Pinto (early 1970's) smoking doobies the size of cigars and listening to this on his 8 Track!! I recently found out Terry passed away in the early '80's in a car accident. Hopefully, he's up in the sky rolling them up for when the rest of us catch up with him.
4) Home Free - Dan Fogelberg
5) Modern Times - Bob Dylan (love this album! and most all Dylan albums)
6) The Foundation - Zac Brown. Wow - talk about tunes getting in your head!
7) Neil Young's Greatest Hits - Neil Young (too many great albums to consider, so this trumps them all. I recall hearing Harvest and After the Gold Rush being played over and over and over in my brothers room!)
8) Once - Soundtrack
9) Buena Vista Social Club - this album blew me away. Blows me away every time I listen!
10) Nick of Time - Bonnie Raitt
11) White Album - the Beatles
12) Nevermind - Nirvana
13) Pump - Aerosmith (I just love this album!)
14) Let it Bleed - Rolling Stones
15) Exile on Main Street - Stones

This might not really be all my favorites - but these are the ones that popped into my bored head this beautiful sunny afternoon as I sit at a computer listening to the Sound Track of my life play in my head.
