Last week, Tim Abbott from Walking the Berkshires posted a challenge that asked, What were the 10 most influencial albums of your formative teenaged years? I’ve read several genea-blogger posts and know that once I list the music that shaped my life as an adolescent, I’ll appear as the teeny-bopper I really was!

So without further ado:

  • Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies & Welcome to My Nightmare
  • Barry Manilow – Tryin’ to Get the Feeling
  • Aerosmith – Toys in the Attic & Get Your Wings
  • Osmonds – The Plan
  • Rick Springfield – Wait for Night
  • Bee Gees – Saturday Night Fever & Spirits Having Flown
  • Peter Frampton – Frampton Comes Alive
  • Original Soundtrack of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”
  • Original Soundtrack of the Who’s “Tommy”
  • Kiss – Alive & Destroyer
  • Elton John – Elton John & Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
  • Bay City Rollers – It’s a Game
  • The Beatles – White Album

Okay – so there are actually 18 albums!  I also had a few singles that shaped my formative teenage years:

  • Led Zepplin – Stairway to Heaven
  • Cher – Dark Lady
  • Rick Springfield – Weep No More
  • Bay City Rollers – The Way I Feel Tonight
  • Kiss – Beth
  • Eagles – Hotel California

See, told you – teeny bopper!  The albums, I’d hear at least once a week & the singles – probably every day!

In all fairness, I enjoy most types of music (just not behind country 100%!)  Music has always been a big part of my life.  My favorite morning is to put on some music, pick up a good book, pour myself a steaming cup of coffee and settle in to enjoy the music of my youth.
