Over my whole life? I'm guessing Dark Side, Bat Out of Hell, and probably Life's Rich Pageant.

Guns N' Roses - Use Your Illusion I

Beck Odelay
Money Mark Mark's Keyboard Repair

I also had these in my CD changer for over a year:

Coldplay A Rush of Blood to the Head
Electrelane The Power Out

The former actually never left once it was purchased. It was just always there.

My iPod, which has been in service only a few months, indicates Amadou & Mariam Dimanche Bamako

Last.fm indicates either Yann Tiersen Amelie OST or the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah self-titled.

If I were to guess, I'd say A Rush of Blood to the Head, Nevermind, and Last Splash. The latter two were staples in my Walkman for many years.

FWIW, I didn't really get too into them until I saw them live (in '95, touring for that album). I've seen them about 6 more times since then (they don't really tour the states, as their last few albums didn't get released here), and they are easily one of the best live bands I've ever seen - and I've seen a lot of great live bands from The Who to Rush and Rollings Stones to U2 - these guys are that good.

I'm going for honesty here not hipness, so in no particular order:
10,000 Maniacs- Unplugged, Paul Simon- Graceland, Thad Cockrell- Warmth and Beauty, Dave Matthews Band- Under the Table and Dreaming, Van Morrison - Moondance

Closely followed by,
Pearl Jam- Ten, Bob Dylan- Nashville Skyline, Cat Stevens- Teaser and the Firecat, Ryan Adams- Gold and R.E.M.- Life's Rich Pageant for me too.
Oh and for a whole summer Prince's- Around the World in a Day never left my tape deck.
More than 3 on the list, but those are the albums that have been and in some cases still are in heavy rotation in my life.

Per my Itunes (since I'm not sure how it would work otherwise and going primarily by which albums have the most played songs)

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Stevie Nicks - The Other Side of the Mirror
Death Cab for Cutie - Plans

Prior to Itunes this list probably wouldn't be too different (and just guessing here):

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Tori Amos - Under the Pink
Carly Simon - Coming Around Again

It's fucking awesome!
Ogden's Nut is my most listened two album of the past two years, even though it was released 39 years ago.

I've never heard their cover. Where might I find it?

Oh, and thanks. Now I have this obsessive need to hear "Afterglow (Of Your Love)".

[not to derail this thread too much]
There was a Small Faces tribute album that came out about ten years ago (it's out of print - so let me know if you need a, um, "hookup"), and even though I'm usually not at all a fan of most tribute albums, this one is pretty great.
Here's are the songs, and the bands that cover them:

1. This Understanding - Primal Scream
2. I Can't Make It - Dodgy
3. It's Too Late - BLOW
4. My Mind's Eye - Northern Uproar
5. I've Got Mine - Manta Ray
6. Afterglow - Changing Man
7. Universal - 60ft Dolls
8. Become Like You - Granny Takes A Trip
9. Song Of A Baker - Ocean Colour Scene
10. Rollin' Over - Whiteout
11. Almost Grown - Reservoir Mods (w/ Paul Weller)
12. Talk To You - Hyperglo
13. Here Comes The Nice - Buzzcocks
14. That Man - Ride
15. Autumn Stone - Gene



*ack, Tim beat me to it...

Yeah, the Ipod (and before that, Winamp) changed everything. But best guess:

Scandal -The Warrior
Oingo Boingo -Boingo Alive
Alison Krauss -Now That I've found You

Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti (Ten Years Gone is just masterful)
Deftones - White Pony (the last 3 songs - Korea, Change, and Pink Maggit...just wow)
Elysian Fields - Bleed Your Cedar (Parachute is gorgeously dark and beautiful...Jennifer Charles has the best voice EVER)

Honorable mention to Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #2, as I have multiple performances of it by various pianists, including Sergei himself, and listen to it a great deal, but just not one specific disc...it's, by far, the most beautiful piece of music ever recorded...

Yeah, her voice is pretty damn amazing.
I first heard her on the self-titled Lovage CD (a side project with Dan the Automator and Mike Patton).

Seriously, your ears will go .
