This is easily the most difficult top 20 I’ve had to make. Movies are one thing, but ranking favorite albums? A different affair entirely. Half of these albums are tied with the other half: it’s really not fair. And Tom Waits got cheated because I love dozens of individual songs from his twenty or so albums. Yeah, this list doesn’t do most of my music any justice whatsoever.
They love me like I was a brother.
They protect me, listen to me.
They dug me my very own garden,
Gave me sunshine, made me happy.
I call up my friend the good angel,
But she’s out with her answerphone.
She says that she’d love to come help, but
The sea would electrocute us all…
