My Top 20 Albums Ever

The title is self explanatory; however, I’ve never really sat down and looked at what my all time favourite albums are. I think this is due to the fact that what I deem a favourite is quite fluid. My mood often dictates what I enjoy at any given time. But, I think I can definitely narrow it down now. At least for this season of my life.

The criteria I used to narrow down this list, include:

  • Enjoying/Appreciating every track on the album – not wanting to skip any.
  • Amount of time I’ve listened to the album (Though this is not prescriptive, as some I’ve only listened through a couple of times, but they just have a certain something about them; or they’re a relatively new album that I’ve only started listening to.)
  • The artist/band/group

So, without further ado. My Top 20 albums, ever. (The top 10 is in order, the rest not in any particular order.)

  1. Still Not Getting Any – Simple Plan
  2. Diamonds – Hawk Nelson
  3. Good News – Rend Collective
  4. The Greatest Showman – Original Soundtrack
  5. Pictures Not Taken – Paul Morrison
  6. Divide – Ed Sheeran
  7. This is Not a Test – TobyMac
  8. The Promise – Plus One
  9. Greetings From California – The Madden Brothers
  10. Avenged Sevenfold – Avenged Sevenfold
  11. Storm Front – Billy Joel
  12. No Other Name – Hillsong Worship
  13. Taking One For the Team – Simple Plan
  14. Hail to the King – Avenged Sevenfold
  15. Highlights of the Phantom of the Opera – Andrew Lloyd Webber
  16. The Best of Human Nature – Human Nature
  17. Let’s Talk About Love – Celine Dion
  18. Get Your Heart On! – Simple Plan
  19. Get Your Heart On! The Second Coming – Simple Plan
  20. Simple Plan, Live in Anaheim – Simple Plan

And, there you go. My Top 20 albums. Oh, and anyone who knows me will not be surprised by the fact that Simple Plan features four times. Haha. They are my all time favourite band.

“Why does it matter?” (Bed Hair – Twelve)

Pierre stood in the elevator, heading up to his room. Chuck and Patrick were with him. The three men weren’t looking at each other; Chuck was on his phone, checking the schedule for the next day; Patrick was leaning against the wall. But, it didn’t take long for someone to decide something needed to be said about the disaster which was the crew and band dinner.

“We should be.” (Bed Hair – Eleven)

Dear Diary,

Pierre is really, really good at fooling the public that he’s happy. That everything is fine in his life and he’s content and enjoying the moments with the band. But, tonight…everyone, and I mean everyone, got to see the real face of Pierre Charles Bouvier.

“Three sizes too big.” (Bed Hair – Ten)

Dear Diary,

School holidays. Something safe to write about. As a relief teacher holidays are my time to refresh myself. To take a breather. I guess it helps me to recalibrate. These holidays are going to be quite a bit different and will encroach into term time, so, I won’t be available to relieve any classes. I’m still not sure how I feel about it all. It seems so sudden… Simple Plan, here, in Perth. Fools Rush In, supporting them on their national tour. I still can’t get my head around it.

Pierre. I don’t have words.

The others, it’s great to see them…

What am I going to tell Bianca and Mark and the rest of the guys? How do you tell them about a past that is hard for me to even think about?
