I'm not talking about the "best" group or music. This is what I'd love to know: What are the albums, 8 tracks, cassettes, cd's, itunes that you played over and over and over and over again? Maybe you wore them out. Maybe you still play them.

Do tell.

I'm still trying to whittle my list down but I know the very first album I wore out was Carole King's "Tapestry." I listened morning, noon and night.

When I was a teenage musical theater geek, I think I listened to Michael Crawford's Andrew Lloyd Webber album (on cassette) every single day. :)

Counting Crows August and Everything After. No Doubt Tragic Kingdom. Counting Crows Recovering the Satellites. Counting Crows This Desert Life. Bryan Adams Cuts Like a Knife. Bryan Adams Reckless. Bryan Adams on a Day Like Today...well, just about every Bryan Adams. I'm not very highbrow.

Tapestry is always on my playlist. I also have Oingo Boingo and The Cure.
When I was a teen I wore out Edie Brikell's What I Am.

If we're also talking about current addictions, Edens Edge (http://www.edensedge.com/) (new-ish country group) is mine. I happen to be wearing their T-shirt as we speak. :D Until their first album comes out next month, I've been playing their EP and their new single obsessively.

I can only think of three albums that I played over and over and over.

The first was Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours". I was on vacation with my Mom and Aunt when it was released. When I got home, I ran inside and hollered at my sisters, "Did you get Rumours yet? Did you get Rumours yet?" Of course they had, I think at one point our family had three copies! :lol:

The next was "Private Dancer" by Tina Turner. I remember when "Let's Stay Together" came out and I thought it was possibly the most amazing recording of all time. From how I remember it, the album came out many months after that single was released, so I found a 12 inch recording with a non-album song on the flip side. That would have to hold me until the album came out. (P.S. I just googled to find out what the b-side was and it is I Wrote A Letter (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nm7ANL7YYg) - can you believe a song this good didn't even make one of her albums???

And the third was "Control" by Janet Jackson. I had her first two albums, but this one was something different (meaning something other-worldly, as far as my ears were concerned). I knew something was up with the single "What Have You Done For Me Lately" and the video which was equally astounding. When I got the LP, I would play it three times a day. Every day. For at least six months. I just thought it was one of the most amazing works ever created.

My car has 6 CD spaces. I have Vivaldi lute concertos, Dvorak trios, 3 Beethoven trios Cds and a Gordon Lightfoot. I think I have memorized every note of every piece and song! Approaching Lavender indeed! That man has the most beautiful voice.

Love classical music in general, and Gordon Lightfoot is one of my all time favorite singer songwrtiers, so I listen to lots of his CDs (my favorite CDs of his being Sundown, Dream Street Rose, and Summertime Dream). Approaching Lavender is a gorgeous song!

Other CDs that get lots of play - John Williams - Summon the Heroes (1996 Olympic CD)
Keith Lockhart & the Boston Pops - The Celtic Album, My Favorite Things (a tribute to Richard Rodgers)
Camelot - original Broadway Cast (Richard Burton, Julie Andrews, Robert Goulet)
The Sound of Music - Original Broadway cast, movie soundtrack, 1998 Broadway revival
The King & I - movie soundtrack, and the studio recording done on PBS in the 1990's (with Julie Andrews and Ben Kingsley)
South Pacific - Original Broadway cast, recent revival, concert version done a few years ago with Reba McIntyre and Brian Mitchell Stokes
Billy Joel -Turnstiles
Joni Mitchell - Court & Spark
James Taylor - Sweet Baby James
Bryan Adams - Reckless
Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves - soundtrack
Mr. Holland's Opus - score and soundtrack
Amadeus - soundtrack

I LOVE the Camelot original Broadway cast album. :swoon:

I have this album too-or rather, my Mother has it stashed away in some dark corner of her overcrowded house. Now I want to hear it! When I was 14, I was an unpaid apprentice at an outdoor summer stock theatre group in Atlanta. We did Camelot-I was an extra. Got to walk across the stage a few times, which was a very big deal for a 14 year old. Anyway, our Lance was the #2 man in the original Broadway production. He was amazing! However, when he sang "C'est Moi" his sword got stuck in its sheath and he was singing beautifully while tugging at it. We were all dying laughing!

I will not listen to the movie soundtrack version of Camelot. Vanessa Redgrave can't sing! Julie rules!

:lol: I was first introduced to Camelot as a kid, when my parents had a reel to reel tape recorder. Camelot was the first stereo recording they bought. As a grown-up, I bought it on cassette, and upgraded it to CD. It's still my all time favorite musical (in general I love Rodgers & Hammerstein & Lerner & Loewe musicals), and I thank my parents and my day camp/sleepover camp and music assembly teachers for all that.

Some other recordings I love:

Riverdance
Lord of the Dance
Spamalot
Jersey Boys
Oklahoma
My Fair Lady
Guys & Dolls
The Mission
First Knight
Little Women
Independence Day
1492
Life is Beautiful
Schindlers' List
Apollo 13
Jurassic Park
Lord of the Rings
The American President
Forrest Gump - soundtrack & score
Father of the Bride
Disney's Fantasia (the original) and Fantasia 2000
