I had a similar preschool moment years ago when I was picking up my 3 year old. The teacher drew me aside and told me that the kids were going around in a circle, each getting a turn for everyone to sing the song of their choice. When it was my daughter's turn she asked for Neil Young's "Crime in the City". Maybe I was supposed to be concerned or something. All I could do was nod and, inwardly, be proud :-)

I was teenager in 80s and I still listen to those 3, so do my kids.

In addition:
Dire Straits - Brothers in arms
Sting - A brand new day
Peter Gabriel - So

But then I care about musical quality - mixing and reproduction. I seek out vintage SACD and DVD-Audio or new good concert on Blu-ray. Nothing can beat the above 3 and Rumers in DVD-A, imho (well, not sure about Brothers in Arms SACD but the music is great).

Everyone has named so many good albums. I am putting my headphones in right now and opening up Spotify now so I can listen to some while I work!

WOW! Y'all're pretty-much "Rockers", eh? Not even one posting for Country Music?
Here're the ones that've made me sit up and listen:

Merle Haggard: "Down Every Road" and "Bluegrass Sessions"
Asleep At The Wheel: "Western Standard Time" and "Ride With Bob"
Willie Nelson: "Pancho and Lefty" and "Stardust"
Vern Gosdin: "Never My Love"
George Strait: "Right or Wrong"

They're mostly albums/songs from the 70s & 80s, from the era when I was actually seriously playing Country Music on the road with a few different bands.
And, yeah ... YMMV ...

People on this forum have lived through the 50s rock n roll, 60s folk era, British Invasion, Motown,70's rock, Disco, Dance, Punk, Hip Hop etc. I am turning 60 this year. I love Dance music. Still buy DJ compilations. Maybe it is because I was a teen during the disco era. Sometimes I listen to Top 40 and Hip Hop music just to keep current with the times. Further, I like listening to 1960s music because it reminds me of being a child.

What is your favorite album that you can listen to over and over and why?

For me, its definitely the "One" compilation album by the Beatles, who I consider to be the greatest band of all time. The 27 songs are familiar and the melodies and harmonies are infectious, I can sing along and it makes me feel good. Perfect CD for the car. The Beatles changed music and they changed with the times.
Children of the Future - The Steve Miller Blues Band - Capitol Records -1968

why? - the arrangements. This was before they went Pop.

Great choices. Repped you. Seventh Sojourn is on my turntable as we speak. Much of the Moody Blues albums are whole side listeners.

I’ll bet you also like:

3 Dog Night
Donovan
Steely Dan
Badfinger
