I could talk about music and albums all day so narrowing it down to just THREE was killing me, but here they are:Arcade Fire- Funeral
I first listened to this album when I was fifteen or sixteen and it completely floored me. It definitely changed the way I thought about music. My favorite track is ''Rebellion (Lies)'' but you should definitely listen to the whole thing, it's a beautiful, post-apocalyptic, dream of an album. Also, David Bowie said it was his favorite album of all time. Have faith in Bowie.Nick Drake- Pink Moon
This album is quiet and gentle, full of strange imagery about the natural world, and yet is very soothing. Nick Drake was a very shy, isolated individual and you can hear that reflected in his music. Favorite track is ''Place to Be''.David Bowie- Hunky Dorky
I love most of Bowie's early stuff but this will always be my favorite just because it makes me so happy. My favorite track is ''Life On Mars'', which is eerily relevant right now in wake of the elections. I'm still devastated by this man's death.
Honorable mention:Pretty Odd- Panic! at the Disco
I was a massive Panic! fan as a teenager and still am to a certain extent today. As a sad teenage, this gem got me through some tough times. Also, I think its genuinely lovely, I love the folk/rock late '60s vibe this album has going on. Favorite track is ''Behind the Sea'' (because Ryan Ross's beautiful voice, am I right.)
