music friday: frequently played albums

The question has been asked on Twitter: What 5 albums have you listened to most in your life? Be honest, not trendy. I don't know how to be honest ... I mean, if I ask, which has been tracking my Spotify usage for a long time, the album I have listened to the most is Pink's The Truth About Love, which I'm pretty sure doesn't reach the numbers of stuff from the 60s, to begin with. So, keeping all that in mind, here is what I came up with, in no particular order.

Honorable Mention to Children of the Future, The Velvet Underground and Nico, Dirty Mind, Surrealistic Pillow, Beggars Banquet.

Personal note: The White Album was released on November 22, 1968. My then girlfriend/current wife gave it to me for a Xmas present.



This is a good Steven list. Would this suggest Born to Run is your fav by the Boss?

Yeah, I know it's a mundane choice, but Born to Run is my fave. I've told the story before, how we had tix to see him in 1975 (the Time/Newsweek year), and when I bought Born to Run, we went to a neighbor's for dinner and played the album. Started with Side Two, probably because that's where the title song was. When it got to Clarence's sax solo on "Jungleland", things got real quiet, and then our neighbor said, "you're going to see a really good show".


It's a great album. Just because most people see that doesn't make it a mundane choice!

Steven Rubio

I can see arguments for Darkness on the Edge of Town (which probably meant more to me than any of his other albums, because it merged so well with my factory life), and Born in the USA is massive. Since this was just "what have you listened to the most", I went with the earlier album. But you guessed it, it's my fave.
