Kompy's Baby Jams

I've been looking back on my childhood a lot the past few months, now that I'm technically an adult, so here's a list of stuff I liked as a wee lad. Inspired by Allergist's list of a similar nature.
1The Beatles
1


First music I can remember really loving- My sister and I listened to "Yellow Submarine" and "Paperback Writer" damn near every day for a while. One of my earliest memories is being in the car on a road trip and hearing "Can't Buy Me Love". Probably the single most important album in my musical development.
2Slade
The Amazing Kamikaze Syndrome


"Run Runaway" was my favorite song for a pretty big chunk of elementary school. There may or may not be a VHS tape of 7-year-old me dancing to this song with a stuffed elephant.
3They Might Be Giants
No!


My Dad's a big TMBG fan, so when they started releasing kid's albums he bought all of them for us. Looking back, some of the songs are your typical simplistic kiddie fare, but others hold up shockingly well ("Four of Two", "Where do they Make Balloons?", and "Sleepwalkers").
4Barenaked Ladies
Maroon


Another family heirloom- both my parents love BnL and I got into them pretty early. Their catchy pop melodies and verbose lyricism were and still are an absolute pleasure.
5Bowling for Soup
A Hangover You Don't Deserve


I used to listen to Radio Disney all day, despite hating literally every other song they played, because they would occasionally play "1985", which I thought was pretty much the most badass song ever at the time.
6Electric Light Orchestra
Discovery


I was super into ELO for most of middle school, and have many fond memories of failing miserably to play "Last Train to London" on bass.
7Fountains of Wayne
Sky Full of Holes


I outgrew this band along with most of the other pop-punk I was into in middle school and early high school, But I still have quite a bit of nostalgia for songs like "Cold Comfort Flowers", "A Dip In the Ocean" and "Someone's Gonna Break Your Heart"
8Wilco
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
9KISS
Greatest KISS


I discovered both these albums in my parents' CD collection at the same time (summer 2010), so now whenever I listen to Wilco I get the urge to jam KISS, despite not really being into them anymore.
10Neon Trees
Habits
11Ramones
Loud, Fast Ramones - Their Toughest Hits


This and 10 were the first albums I ever bought with my own money, back in... 2011, I think? The Ramones were the band that transitioned me from listening to mostly pop-rock and pop-punk to listening to hardcore punk, metal, and eventually all kinds of other stuff.
