Hey!
I just though of something.
Every one should write what was the Top 5 albums according to Billboard the year you were born.

How do you do it?
Go here: Historical Music Charts Archive - At Billboard.com You Can Explore Music History , and then check the lower-left area "Billboard 200 - Albums" and click the year you were born.

Mine:
1992
1. Garth Brooks - Ropin' the Wind
2. Michael Jackson - Dangerous
3. Nirvana - Nevermind
4. Billy Ray Cyrus - Some Gave All
5. U2 - Achtung Baby

Have fun

1979

1) Billy Joel - 52nd Street
2) Bee Gees - Spirits Having Flown
3) Doobie Brothers - Minute By Minute
4) Cars - Cars
5) Supertramp - Breakfast In America

All talented bands IMO, but I can live without the Bee Gees. Too bad I was a year late for Aja, one of my favorite albums of all time.
