Monday (8/30/10) 9:44am - ... wherein Peter answers the "15 albums" meme.

Okay, I'm doing this meme even though I didn't get tagged on it.

The rules:  Don't take too long to think about it.  Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you.  List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.  Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose.  (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste the rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note.)
These aren't necessarily the best albums I like, nor the most representative of my taste in music.  Like the meme says, they're albums that stuck with me.  They stay pinned to specific parts of my life, and they're roughly in chronological order -- the first four, I listened to incessantly in high school; the next five are all college albums; the rest I've discovered more recently.  I've linked the titles to representative songs when possible.

1. Grapes of Wrath - Treehouse
2. Sam Cooke - Live at the Harlem Square Club 1963
3. REM - Murmur
4. Pink Floyd - The Wall
5. Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
6. Matthew Sweet - Earth
7. The Connells - One Simple Word
8. Sting - The Soul Cages
9. Indigo Girls - Rites of Passage
10. Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson
11. Stevie Wonder - Innervisions
12. Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
13. Cotton Mather - Kon-Tiki
14. Big Star - #1 Record
15. The Nines - Properties of Sound

I suppose I'll go ahead and tag some people once this mirrors over to facebook.
