Illustration for article titled New Additions to My Music Library

Recently my family observed the two-year anniversary of the passing of my step-dad, and finally got around to doing something that we'd meant to do for a while. We got the whole family together (my mom, my brothers, and my sister-in-law) and went through my step-dad's CD library, each picking out what we wanted to keep.


My step-dad's musical taste informed a good portion of what I've come to like, so I was happy to come away with some albums that I'd always wanted but had never bought. And it's like a musical time machine, honestly. Lemme give you a run-down:

  • Information Society, Information Society (1988)
  • Information Society, Peace and Love, Inc. (1992)
  • Eurythmics, Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (1983)
  • Depeche Mode, Violator (1990)
  • Depeche Mode, Songs of Faith and Devotion (1993)
  • Queen, Jazz (1978)
  • Queen, The Game (1980)
  • Duran Duran, Rio (1982)
  • Duran Duran, Seven and the Ragged Tiger (2003)
  • No Doubt, Tragic Kingdom (1995)
  • ABC, The Lexicon of Love (1982)
  • The Cars, The Cars (1978)
  • Talking Heads, Speaking in Tongues (1983)
  • Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense (1984)
  • Tom Petty, Full Moon Fever (1989)
  • 10,000 Maniacs, Blind Man's Zoo (1989)
  • 10,000 Maniacs, In My Tribe (1987)
  • 10,000 Maniacs, Our Time in Eden (1992)

  • Steely Dan, Two Against Nature (2000)
  • Sixpence None the Richer, Sixpence None the Richer (1998)

Does this ring any nostalgia bells with anyone else?
