So there’s a new (to me) meme going around that asks you to pick 15 albums that changed your life or affected you in some grand way. I really couldn’t do 15 albums only, so did 15 albums from 1980 to 1992:
talking heads – remain in light
michael jackson – thriller
vangelis – blade runner soundtrack
newcleus – jam-on revenge
prince – purple rain
beastie boys – licensed to ill
n.w.a./eazy e. – straight outta compton/eazy duz it (bought ’em the same day so they’re forever one album to me)
leonard cohen – i’m your man
the pixies – doolittle
nine inch nails – pretty hate machine
public enemy – fear of a black planet
my bloody valentine – loveless
rhcp – bloodsugarsexmagick
the orb – the orb’s adventures beyond the ultraworld
the pharcyde – bizarre ride II…
Taking it one step further I put together a mixtape of one song from each of the albums above. I think I’m going to start a weekly mixtape feature here. Some weeks will have a theme. Others will just be random rawk. Enjoy.
Roughly 78 minutes long.

I’m taking all the credit for bringing you the Pixies. And Loveless too, I think?
Now I’m gonna have to work up a list too…
crap, i did it again…posted a comment under the wife’s login
🙂 yes, pixies and mbv are all you, my man (posing as your wife). and i am eternally grateful. though, to be fair, i first heard doolittle with patty, just didn’t grab me like it did when we lived together.
yeah, but patty liked rancid.
