I like your choices. Definitely a rock fan.

ExactingL - it was surprisingly hard to limit myself to 10 albums, but I tried hard to think of my youth and what I listened to most. I think this is a pretty good representation, but keep coming up with missing albums - like Frampton Comes Alive.
Desert island lists are even harder! Surprisingly, I think about desert island lists for music/books fairly often. Just yesterday afternoon I was discussing my book list. :)

Eeek, ExactingL, I just looked at your desert island post and didn't realise it is limited to 8 music/1 book! When I play I do it with 10 and 10 and still find it impossible!

Recognise the Led Zepplin, Boston and Crosby etc. I'd have to go downstairs and look at the albums to figure out the rest. I'm a really big fan of silence these days!

Shelley, I find I have to make time to listen to music because as I've grown older silence seems almost more natural. I love music, I just forget to listen to it. And listening to music from my youth is really nice these days. Maybe I'm just stuck in a rut. :)

Sometimes when I hear music from my youth it reminds me how it felt to by young and it motivates me to exercise! Sometimes.

Shelley, listening to this old music makes me feel young. It is amazing how transporting it can be.

Dark Side of the Moon should probably be on the list. And After The Gold Rush. Maybe some Queen...

ah, a different generation here. With a wee bit of overlap. Mine were Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Doors, Joplin, Zappa, Jefferson Airplane, King Crimson, Cream, ...
Like you, I really prefer silence now.

Ah, I like all of that music too Pao. I still listen to a lot of 60s and 70s music. It makes me happy. :)
