❝List 10 albums in no particular order that made a lasting impression on you as a TEENAGER, but only one per band/artist. Don't take too long and don't think too hard!❞

(This is a meme that's currently circulating over on Bookface, but in the nostalgic spirit of the teenaged years, I'm posting my list here.)

  1. Electric Light Orchestra, New World Record
  2. Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
  3. Supertramp, Crime of the Century
  4. Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon
  5. Aerosmith, Toys in the Attic
  6. Van Halen, Van Halen
  7. The Beatles, The Beatles (White Album)
  8. Bruce Springsteen, Darkness on the Edge of Town
  9. The Specials, The Specials
  10. The Clash, London Calling

These are basically in the order that these albums impressed themselves on me. At the risk of thinking too hard, I'd say they reflect a progression in my listening habits, and changes in my cohort. The last two led into a real musical awakening in my 20s, which is to say, the 1980s.

I would later come to appreciate artists from the 1970s that I'd overlooked, and some of these 1970s artists would go on to do well in the new decade as well. But this is a snapshot of my teenaged years.

≎ Apparently, I Am Blue Denim, and apparently what that means is:

You remind others to have fun. Life should always be celebrated. You believe in living in the present. There's nothing but the here and now. You are a very "do it yourself" type of person. You like to dig in and get things done. You have great people skills. You can find common ground with others well.

To be perfectly honest, I didn't know that denim came in other colors. At least it matches my lucky underwear. Also, my waist doesn't exactly look like this.

What color denim are you?
