Listenin' to Abbey Road

I'm a binge music listener. When I listen to a band, I listen to them for about 2 weeks straight -- day-in and day-out. Then it's on to the next band for 2 weeks.

Well, right now, I'm listening to the Beatles, specifically Abbey Road. It was such nice weather today that I rolled the windows down and turned the volume up! As I was listening to it, I decided that the best song transition in the history of rock is the change from "Polythene Pam" to "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window." I get so excited every time I listen to it. I start to think like Willy Wonka: The suspense is terrible . . . I hope it lasts.

And with that thought, I remembered that old show on VH1 called "The List." That was a good show. Each celebrity had to pick their top 3 albums in a certain category, like "Top 3 soundtracks," "Top 3 pop albums," or "Top 3 80's albums." Anyway, today I thought about what would be my top 3 rock albums. I know that "rock" is a huge category, but here are the three I picked:
  1. Abbey Road, The Beatles
  2. The Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd
  3. The Blue Album, Weezer
What would be yours?

Thing I'm thankful for: Nappy naps.
