Listography ~Top 5 Band Albums

It's time for the Top 5 list again!!

Kate from Kate Takes 5 is making things a little difficult for me. I read her subject for this week and immediately felt stumped! So much so that I debated not even participating this week.
The subject for this weeks Listography is your Top Five Albums by a Band...
I am not really a "band" girl.. Everyone that knows me, knows that I'm a country girl and I love my country music. Most country artists aren't "bands"..

I decided to sleep on this one.. While laying in bed, the subject took me back a LONG time!! Like to grades 7,8 and then to high school...
Going back in my head, remembering school dances, joy rides with the girls and long weekends camping, I quickly thought of some really great (or maybe only great because of memories..) albums.
I tried to really think about albums that I could just hit play and enjoy the whole album. I didn't want to pick some of my favourites that only had a few great songs..

Here we go, in no particular order!!!! And remember,,,, don't judge me,,, or make fun!!! lol

1. REM ~ AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE
      I can't even begin to tell you how many times I sat listening to Man on the Moon and Everybody Hurts... usually after a breakup!!! lol


2. COUNTING CROWS ~ AUGUST AND EVERYTHING AFTER
     This was my brother's favourite album for a long time. If I wanted a ride anywhere, this is what I had to listen to.. I grew to love it as much as him. My favourite song....Round Here...


3. CCR~ THE BEST OF CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL
     I don't think that this one needs explanation,,, I just LOVE IT!!


4. STEVE MILLER BAND~ GREATEST HITS 1974-978
     This album takes me back to summers at my cottage.. All of the older "cool" kids and my sister played this album constantly one summer

5. DIXIE CHICKS ~ WIDE OPEN SPACES
     Don't judge me! I LOVE the Dixie Chicks and always will... I think this album stirred up my love for country music.


After doing this, I think that I'm going to go buy each and every one of these albums from Itunes!! I can't wait to hear some of those old songs again!!
What would your Top 5 Band Albums be??!! Remember,, the hard part is that they have to be "BANDS",, because my list would have looked completely had it just been any artist!!!
Can't wait to hear your top 5 and be sure to pop over to Kate Takes 5 to see everyone else's list!

I totally agree. I was stumped for ages too and like you had to do a whole memory lane! Totally love your REM selection. So many memories. LOVED your list.

Sarah said...

Thanks Gemma! I think REM was the first one that popped into my head. Its funny that it made me think of my old bedroom and the horrid wallpaper and bedding that I had!! lol

Dixie Chicks Forever!!! I still love that album start to finish!! :) and when I think back to the cottage, Fishing in the Dark by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band comes to mind!!!!! lol

Anne said...

The "Steve Miller Band Greatest Hits" is another one of my all time favourites. I'm always rockin' along to "Keep on Rockin' Me Baby" and it was playing when I actually drove from Phoenix Arizona all the way to Tacoma! LOL! Love it!
