My Top Six Favourite Music Albums

Roger Johansson wrote My top ten favourite music albums and I was gonna reply but I do not have ten (10) albums. I’ve got six. Though, I did have a few songs that I have played until they’ve become white noise.

I found nineteen artists with songs. Six for which all songs on an album I like; twelve artists with songs that have gone white noise; and, one with collected label set plus one song.

  1. The Quicksilver Messenger Service
    “The Quicksilver Messenger Service” [First Album]
    [Note: The finest San Francisco psychedelic music. The album art was originally printed on silver foil.]
  2. The Byrds
    “Younger Than Yesterday”
    [Note: Very trippy Los Angeles psychedelic type music.]
  3. The Chameleons
    “Script from a Bridge”
  4. Thelonious Monk
    “Monk’s Music”
    [Note: If only for “Well, You Needn’t” (with John Coltrane’s and Coleman Hawkin’s solos) but all of the songs are pure Monk. His most immediately accessible.]
  5. Tool
  6. Gustave Mahler
    “Symphony No. 2” - Bruno Walter’s (or. Pierre Boulez with Berlin Philharmonic, and Staatsopernchor Staatskapelle Berlin)
  7. John Cale
    “The Island Years” with 12" single version of “Hedda Gabler”
  8. Joy Division
    “She’s Lost Control”
    “Shadow Play”
    “The Only Mistake”
    “Love Will Tear Us Apart”
    “Dead Souls”
  9. Ministry
    “Just One Fix” [Extended CD Versions]
    “So What” [from The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste]
  10. The Move
    “Blackberry Way”
    “Walk upon the Water”
  11. Ian Dury and The Blockheads
    “Sink My Boats”
    “Wake Up and Make Love With Me”
    “If I Was With a Woman”
  12. Taj Mahal
    “Oh, Susannah”
    [Note: My favorite happy song (and it’s got a five-hole fife.) I've almost figured how to play it on the ukulele.]
  13. Johnny Cash
    [Note: This song is best listened to whilst watching the video.]
  14. Los Straitjackets
  15. The Jam
    “That’s Entertainment”
  16. Bauhaus
    “Bela Lugosi’s Dead”
  17. Hunters & Collectors
    “Run Run Run”
  18. Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
    “The Carny” [from Wings of Desire]
  19. Fats Waller and His Rhythm
    [Note: Another happiest songs.]

I like songs.

You can tell a lot about a man by the music he listens to.
