    I'm sure Kraftwerk had a release in 79.

    Thank you, GPS! I was not only having a hard time remembering what I was listening to in 1979, but I was having a hard time finding credibility in a poll started by someone who wasn't even a sperm droplet then.

    Okay, now that Mr.Credibility has arrived, I can take this poll more seriously... Now, if only I could remember 1979 as clearly as Tom...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Right. And if you're on this board, you likely fall into the "music geek" category, hence why you were listening to those albums that most people would find at least slightly obscure.

    For instance, I just googled "top albums 1979" and it looks like the best-sellers were The Wall, Highway to Hell, Off the Wall, The Clash, and The B-52s.
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum

    I'm pretty sure The Clash was not a big seller in the US in 1979.

    Also, 52nd Street would be on any best seller list for 1979. Also Get the Knack. And Donna Summer and Rod Stewart.

    Edit: and Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty.

    It would be my preference as opposed to be a 25 year morning quaterback.

    I had no idea who Joy Division was in 1979, but I could have won a Debbie Harry nipple sucking contest in 79.

    Blondie, Joe Jackson, Cheap Trick, The Cars, and the B52s would be my list for 1979.

    The B52s would be my favorite 1979 album. I still have my original LP.
    Whiskey Sour

    This is exactly what I'm talking about. The average pop culture awareness of the time, I'd say.

    I pick "The Wall". "Off the Wall" would be my runner up, for "Don't stop 'til you get enough" alone! Never been a ginourmous Clash fan, but they'd be my third pick. For compilations, I would go with Bee Gees Greatest! I love that set. This is all in retrospect, of course, I wasn't even born until 1980.
    Upcoming: 04/11/14-04/13/14 - Coachella Weekend One; 04/18/14-04/20/14 - Coachella Weekend Two; 08/19/14 - NIN/Soundgarden (Isleta Amphitheater - Albuquerque, NM)

    Well you've leavened the discussion with a dash of absurdity. I would pay cash money to punch Jimmy Buffet in his swollen red schnozz.
