In no particular order
  1. Tomorrow the Green Grass - The Jayhawks
    This album made me rethink what I knew about music
  2. Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
    Just roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair
  3. Forrest Gump Soundtrack
    The score medley changed my point of view on movie soundtrack scores. It's beautiful.
  4. IV - Led Zeppelin
    Introduced me to hard rock when I discovered it in my mother's 8-track player. The first song I ever slow-danced to was Stairway To Heaven.
  5. Hell Freezes Over - The Eagles
    This tape lived in my Walkman during long freezing walks in the snow, and I got to know the music more than the originals
