Music is also known as The Universal Language. Simply put, music is an incredibly human form of art — perhaps the most human, actually. And it is these collections of songs we believe everyone should keep in their repertoire, both because they are enjoyable but also because they help give us a bit of depth, perspective, and understanding we might not otherwise have. Whether you stream, still cling to CDs, or are a part of the vinyl turntable revival, give these a listen.
When it came out in , this album topped the Billboard charts. A part of that reason is because, even at his most nihilistic, 2Pac was a visionary lyricist. Dre, either. This album is a legendary one for two reasons. If you have any appreciation for rock music , you should give this one a listen. The debut album from the Beastie Boys is still one of the best hip hop albums of all time and, so it seems, is comprised entirely of big hits from start to finish. Simply put, the nobel prize-winning musician is a lyrical virtuoso.
And, although that particular song cannot be found on Blonde on Blonde , this record still shows Bob Dylan at perhaps his most bizarre and creative. It should come as no surprise that Bob Marley made it on our list of records everyone should own. He is, after all, the reigning king of reggae — and likely will be for at least the entirety of our lifetime, if not longer.
Exodus is special, however, as it is what we believe to be the most cohesive and complete record in his catalogue. In our opinion, the Clash are the greatest punk band of all time. The album is loaded with hits that serve both to exhibit the sheer versatility of Joe Strummer and company and to keep your head shaking from beginning to end.
Sorry, die-hard Ramones and Sex Pistols fans, but the Clash just had that little bit extra that rocketed them into the rock and roll pantheon. Comprised solely of two Frenchmen, Daft Punk has become one of the greatest musical groups of all time.
Even people unfamiliar with the group themselves have likely enjoyed their music at one time or another — thanks in part to their collaborations; ubiquitousness in popular television , radio, and film; and involvement in advertising.
In , now-legendary producer Danger Mouse created what might be called the greatest mash-up record of all time. The result was glorious, to say the least. In fact, the Grey Album could be credited as starting the mash-up craze that happened in the late s. As a note, this is not an official pressing of the record, as only 3, were ever originally produced. Jazz is a strange beast, as far as musical genres go. That being said, we still believe every man should have a fairly intimate knowledge of at least one excellent jazz record.
This one from the Dave Brubeck Quartet is definitely a good place to start. And it helps that some of the songs sound familiar, thanks to their frequent use in other mediums — like movies and television shows.
By contrast, David Bowie was a shining light of creativity and originality. You can choose which cookies you want to accept. We need basic cookies to make this site work, therefore these are the minimum you can select. You can always change your cookie preferences in your profile settings.
