"Think of 10 albums, CDs, LPs (if you're over 40) that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life. Dug into your soul. Music that brought you to life when you heard it. Royally affected you, kicked you in the wazoo, literally socked you in the gut, is what I mean. Then when you finish, tag 15 others, including moi. Make sure you copy and paste this part so they know the drill. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you're it!" 

1. You're Awful, I Love You - LUDO

2. Twilight Soundtrack

3. NOW! That's What I Call Country

4. Straight Outta Lynwood - "Weird Al" Yankovic

5. Greatest Hits - JoDee Messina

6. Under My Skin - Avril Lavigne

7. Fallen - Evanescence

8. Finally Out Of P.E. - Brie Larson

9. Oh Aaron - Aaron Carter

10. Nikky Cleary - Nikki Cleary

Looking at this one can easily tell I have a wide reange of musical interests. I can already hear the laughs I'm getting when you read the Aaron Carter part. Yes, I listen to Aaron Carter. Like all great artists, he was good until he believed the record company over himself. I hate it when an artist is one genre for one album then another genre the next.
