11.10.13 Emotional Albums

Emotional Albums

Albums that have emotional associations for me
1The Stooges
Raw Power

First punk album
2Amy Winehouse
Back to Black

Listening in the car with my sisters in seventh grade; psuedo-breakups
3Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am...

Last great Dandry album; sister too
4The Beatles
Abbey Road

The first album I ever knew, first favorite song (Maxwell's Silver Hammer)
5The Clash
London Calling

Listened to since I was a kid, took me forever to listen to it in its entirety, I have a
poster of it in my room.
6Stevie Wonder

Intensely emotional every time I revisit it. My dad played this for me when I was a
kid; "Visions" and "Living for the City" kill me
7 Simon & Garfunkel
Greatest Hits

I still know every song by heart thanks to my mother
8 The Beatles
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Music taste starts here
9Cocteau Twins
Heaven Or Las Vegas

Makes me think of my best friend. My sister and a few other friends now love this
album too. If I knew I was never going to see anyone again this is what I'd listen to
because it makes me remember that the world can be a beautiful place
Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

The first album I knew by heart

10th grade angst, pt. 1

Beginning of an obsession; bonding with my older sister

Exactly the album I needed to hear when I heard it
15The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds

In Which Younger Me Reevaluates an Album & Falls in Love with It. "...Wasn't Made
For These Times" expresses how I felt when I only liked old music
16The Replacements
Let It Be

Isolation/depression in college made bearable...
17The Strokes
Is This It

In Which Younger Me Decides Modern Music Can Be Good; makes me discover
postpunk and the Velvet Underground
18T. Rex
Electric Warrior

A definitive document of being a teenager
19 Yann Tiersen

Transports me into one of my favorite romance movies, makes me want to cry half
the time

(see Wire - Pink Flag)
22 Elvis Costello

24The Olivia Tremor Control

Helps me calm down in emotional situations
25 The Cure

Made me realize the badassity of clean guitars; title track might be one of the best
pop songs ever in terms of immediacy, lyrics, emotions, catchiness... just everything
