Fifteen Albums (Music Meme)

Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of, musically shaped your world.

AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheep
Billy Squier - Don't Say No
Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen - Lucky Town
Bryan Adams - 18 Til I Die
The Eagles - Eagles Live
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Foreigner - 4
Joe Cocker - Live
Journey - Time³
Little River Band - Greatest Hits
Pat Benatar - Crimes of Passion
Queen - The Game
Robert Plant - Now and Zen
Rod Stewart - A Night on the Town

* Note - My profound musical moments are usually attributed to a specific song, not the artist or the entire album. Looking through the discography of the artists responsible for those magical songs led me to choose the above albums...let me tell you, it wasn't easy! My iTunes Library is full of songs from artist's greatest hits releases. I'm reaching back a few years here.
