Who went home last night? Was it Tom Delay and his two stress-fractures? Did Michael Irvin drop the ball on Monday? Does Debi Mazur have the entourage of the others?

OK, So STARRLIGHT of "Here Comes A Storm In The Form Of A Girl"tagged me with this on Facebook weeks ago and I think it is a cool thing to do, so here we go...I am telling you, this is not so easy!

  5. Great list dude. They are all great picks...

     
  6. ...careful with that axe, Eugene...

     
  7. Starrlight Says:
  8. Wasn't it hard to keep it to 25?!?! Love the nod to the GTO;s

     
  9. Jay Says:
  10. These lists are so hard to do because everyday your top 25 probably changes a bit. Or a lot. ;-)

     
  11. I'll try to do this one... for some reason I wonder if I can come up with 25.

     
  12. Yeah, I got tagged with this one, and another one, too. I've just been too scatter brained to do them. Some day...

     
  13. Outstanding list, Vinny. I really don't see how you managed to cut it down to just 25.

    #3, #10, #16, #18 and #19 would almost definitely be on my list.

     
  14. Travis Says:
  15. Great list. I couldn't do it. I haven't really been influenced by full albums, and my list of favorite songs is constantly in flux.

     
  16. TopChamp Says:
  17. Ha - no 1. I love that you love them.

     
  18. Ralph Says:
  19. The first LPs that we had as kids were given to us with our GE record player for Christmas 1967, seventh grade for me. "Sgt. Pepper', 'Rubber Soul' and 'Surrealistic Pillow' were among them. My parents were hip, sort of, for picking out these selections! In later years, I love # 05, the Boss with brass, 'Kitty's Back' my favorite Springsteen song for the ages. Nice choices!

     
  20. Dana Says:
  21. So The Bay City Rollers actually count? Their "Rollin'" was my first album. STOP.LAUGHING!
