50 Favorite Albums

These are all CDs I love and make me happy from start to finish when I put them on. I guess they are the best albums I have ever heard. I know I can’t fit a few albums, but I don’t think I can take anything off. I realize a list of albums is pretty useless to people, so I put my favorite song from each album. But, this isn’t a list saying, “You should love these albums too.” It’s my personal list. If I do inspire others to listen to any of these artists, then great.
