Top 10 Albums of My Teenage Years

There’s a meme going around on the social media circles regarding the top ten albums listened to as a teen. For me, I’d have to exclude KISS releases or otherwise Creatures of the Night, Lick It Up, Animalize, Asylum, and Crazy Nights would make up half the list.

I consider “teenage” to be my high school years. It’s interesting (at least to me) when I think back to what I was listening to at that time boils down to what my high school cross country and track team was listening to on road trips and meet camps. Ahh, the age of the boom box.

Here’s what I came up with–a whole lot of early 80s music:

  1. Michael Jackson, Thriller
  2. Def Leppard, Pyromania
  3. Motley Crue, Shout at the Devil
  4. Van Halen, 1984
  5. Scorpions, Love at First Sting
  6. Styx, Kilroy was Here
  7. Bon Jovi, Slippery When Wet
  8. Prince, Purple Rain
  9. Journey, Frontiers
  10. The Police, Synchronicity

Does this list make me look old?
