The Motion Sick: Most Listened to Records

(Post by Travis Richter)

Hey Yall,

So I saw Mike’s last post about picking his fave records from each year he’s been alive, and I thought it was a great idea. Unfortunately, I got through 3 years and realized there was no way I was going to be able to pick my favorite records, mostly because there are just too many. Instead, I made a list of the records that came out in each year (according to the wikipedia list ONLY) and picked one record for each year that I felt I wore out. These are by no means my favorites… I’m also sure that I’m missing some great records I listened to, but I only used the list posted on wikipedia, so I apologize to all of the records I listened to a lot and got the shaft. Here goes.
