my 20 from 20  
My 20 from 20 years. (Not necessarily recorded in the past 20 years, but I "discovered" them in the past 20 years. EEK! I can say "the past 20 years"!?!?!) These albums got me through at least 40 crushes, my first car, one gay boyfriend, three big moves between two different states, college, high school, teen angst and life in general.

Midnight Oil – Blue Sky Mining (listened to obsessively the summer of 1990)
Cowboy Junkies – basically every album but especially "Studio"
Paul Simon – Graceland
Mazzy Star – So Tonight That I Might See (first heard in Savannah, GA)
Voice of the Beehive – Honey Lingers (found while huddled around a radio at 3am ON A SCHOOL NIGHT in 11th grade)
Smashing Pumpkins – Adore
Blues Traveler – Travelers and Thieves
Van Morrison – Astral Weeks (first CD Craig bought me)
Lemonheads – Car Button Cloth
INXS – Kick (first concert I ever went to if you don't count Whitney Houston)
10,000 Maniacs – Our Time in Eden
Chris Issak – Baja Sessions
Buffalo Tom – Big Red Letter Day ("Sodajerk" and "Tree House" were my Wilmington anthems in 1996-1997)
Stevie Wonder – Song Review
Fleetwood Mac – The Very Best of
REM – Life's Rich Pageant
Counting Crows – Live Across A Wire
Jayhawks –Tomorrow the Green Grass
Everything But the Girl – Acoustic

Honorable Soundtrack Mentions:
Rushmore
When Harry Met Sally
Singles
Romeo+Juliet (new version)
Great Expectations (new version)

Ella's honorable mention from her past 20 days:
Simon and Garfunkel - Bookends (for the song "At The Zoo" sung by me along with the Paul Simon children's book of the same name)
