13 Cassette Tapes I own
I recently went through yet another box, and this one turned out to be Cassette Tapes.
You know, cassettes. They came after 8-Tracts (sp?) and before CDs.
So I'm going to reach in and pull out 13 of them and tell you what they are! Feel free to leave a comment if you smiled at any of them. Or cringed. Or hated them all, or even had no idea who any of the artist's are!
- Amy Grant's Heart in Motion. You know this one, where she turned to pop music. Come on, admit it, you know "Baby Baby"!
- Billy Joel's The Stranger. Movin' Out, Only the Good Die Young, Just the Way You Are, She's Always a Woman. Now this is a classic album. But my two favorites are Scenes From an Italian Restaurant and Vienna.
- Carly Simon's Greatest Hits Live. Yeah, I like her old stuff. Coming Around Again, Anticipation, You're so Vain.
- Whitney Houston (self titled). Back when she was, like, normal. Greatest Love of All, How Will I know.
- Paul Simon's Still Crazy After All These Years. The title of my life Album has 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, which, really, they don't all work.
- Steven Curtis Chapman's Heaven in the Real World. I like Steven's work. We don't agree on much, but he really seems to be living by his own values, and that's reflected in his work. Plus, he's just a terrific song writer period.
- Jeff Foxworthy's Games Rednecks Play. 'Nuff said.
- Randy Stonehill's Until We Have Wings. Another Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter who just does an excellent job of his craft. Plus, pretty funny. Saw him in concert years and years ago.
- Elton John's Greatest Hits Volume 2. He's great. His songs are great. Levon, The Bitch is Back, Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word. Great stuff!
- Huey Lewis And The New's FORE! album. I've always liked this group. Loved the video for Stuck on You. Also has Hip to be Square, a song I never really cared for.
- Eagle's Hell Freezes Over. The album/concert that brought them back together. Who can argue the greatness of this band. Take it Easy, Hotel California, Desperado, New York Minute, Get over it. Great Rock.
- Paul Simon's The Rhythm of the Saints. After his tradition solo work, he went Afrikan (in sound) with this album (or was it the one before it, Graceland, that he did that?) I enjoyed The Obvious Child and Born at the Right time.
- Billy Joel's Piano Man. I love Stop in Nevada. Then there's Captain Jack. And we all know what that songs about. hehehe. Plus the title cut.
13 albums. Any of them make you smile? Or cringe? (Good thing I didn't pull out my Debbie Gibson tape... out of the blue.
