Kick out the Jams.

Music is a massive inspiration to me, it helps me live. Truly, without music and books I would be destroyed. So I figured I would put together a list of songs that have influenced my being.

Leave the City-Magnolia Electric Co.

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised-Gil Scott Heron

Hey Joe-Patti Smith

Queen- Greatest Hits-(This band is incredible, just listen to everything you can possibly find, soak it all in.)

All These Vicious Dogs-Will Oldham

Nantes-Beirut

July-Youth Lagoon

Little Dreamer-Future Islands

Helicopter-Deerhunter

All Tomorrows Parties-The Velvet Underground

You gonna get it-The Coachwhips

I’m Eighteen-Alice Cooper

Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd

Space Oddity-David Bowie

Battle for Hoth-Burden Of A Day

White Wedding-Billy Idol

Tiny Dancer-Elton John

Dancing in the Moonlight-King Harvest

Fleetwood Mac (Greatest Hits Album, absolutely could not limit my choice to a few)

The Humpty Dance-Digital Underground

Bring on the Dancing Horses-Echo and the Bunnymen

If it appears this list is appealing, it will continue to grow, this is just a few to start out. The links are the best versions, but go discover the other versions! They are just as insane.
