A few weeks ago, our local newspaper had an article in the Entertainment section about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame releasing the Definitive 200, a list of 200 ranked albums that every music lover should own.
I love music, so I’m thinking that I should have quite a few of these, right?
Um. No. I don’t. Of the 200, I have 42… and that includes only three of the top ten (Which three? I have:
Led Zeppelin “Led Zeppelin IV”
U2 “Joshua Tree”
(I should also count Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” because I had it, but lost it, and it was awesome, but I only downloaded a few songs from iTunes for my iPod, and…)
I’m actually surprised at some of the albums listed. The Eagles, I get. Miles Davis, makes sense. Led Zep, you bet. Michael Jackson, circa the Thriller years? Oh yeah. That there is more than one Tupac album on the list – really? I like rap, I do… but I can’t even think of more than one Tupac song. There’s also several Dixie Chicks albums listed – huh!? Enya? Seriously.
Folks – check the list out. Then come back and tell me – how many of these are in your music library?
