    • There have been albums like Bat Out of Hell from Meat Loaf that I have played a trillion times forsaking all others until I needed a change. Have you ever heard this really fun album with creative songs Spanish Train and Other Stories by Chris de Burgh. it is really awesome. You can now find it on YouTube.
