7 Albums Turning 20

I'm a huge music person. I've always got music playing in the car. I listen to music all day at work. I listen to a variety of artists and make sure my kids do the same. As a teen, I would shut myself in my room listening to my favorite songs and albums on repeat. It's hard to believe that the 7 albums below are turning 20 this year. I can remember listening to each of these. It's amazing how a song can immediately take you back to an exact time and place. Each of the songs highlighted below do exactly that. I feel obligated to specifically mention Jagged Little Pill. I listened to it in its entirety this past week. Without a doubt, Alanis stands the test of time. Jagged Little Pill is still one of the best albums of all-time.

Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne supernova in the sky

Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me cause it hurts

I want you to know, that I'm happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both

Dreams last so long
Even after you're gone
I know that you love me
And soon you will see
You were meant for me
And I was meant for you

It's steadily creeping up on the family
Exactly how many days we got lasting
While you laughing, we're passing passing away

Peaches come from a can
They were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way
I'd eat peaches every day

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused

I'm going to see Marilyn Manson in concert for the first time next month.
I know he's not for everyone, but I'm extremely excited!

I only owned the first two, but I remember them all coming out. Wow I'm old. Although, I was only 10/11 in 1995!

OMG! Bone bone hone bone...Now tell me whatcha gonna do... Hahaha!I haven't thought about them in years. Crossroads was the best song ever. Besides that one and Manson's album, I listened to and loved the others so, so much. I agree that Jagged Little Pill is still awesome. I feel the same way about Oasis too. I liked Manson's singles, but didn't really get into him until Mechanical Animals. And even then, I wasn't really into him. I didn't even know he still toured. I'm so excited to hear how the concert goes! I'd definitely see him live. He's an artist! I might be afraid of the kids in the audience though. I'm old. Haha!

Woah. This makes me feel old. I was out of high school when all of these came out.

No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom was the soundtrack to my life for about a year and a half.

I saw Marilyn Manson this past weekend, and I've also seen him about ten years ago. I love his new album, but I think he was wasted at his performance. Slurring. Disappearing at random times off stage. I hope he's better when you see him.
