Are you a music loser? How many of these albums do you have? If you’ve got twelve or more, you might be a Dido fan. (I have six, but if you count mp3’s of the bands mentioned, it goes much higher. Thus I’m probably a loser.)

  1. Here’s my secret loser confession: I’m looking forward to the new Alanis album, and I hope to hear her new single when I turn on the radio. And don’t get my started on my weird longing for a Sheryl Crow Greatest Hits CD.

    For the list: I have five, although all of them are pretty old (Tracy Chapman, Graceland, Madonna’s Bedtime stories, U2 Joshua Tree, Oasis). The boyfriend has a few more (Moby, Bob Marley, Eminem, Lauryn Hill). But it’s a little too Britpoppy to really be my pop music collection.

  2. Only five. Thank the lord!

  3. Ten. Pray for Mojo.

  4. phew — only 5 — and one was a gift that i’ve never listened to, so does that count?

  5. Ooh, I think I heard Alanis’s new single, Bill! It was on some TV show here. I liked it. (Confession: I’ve seen Alanis twice, once on her first American tour and once a couple years back when she toured with Tori Amos.) She’s a bit freaky in live performance.

    I think we’re all safe, guys. The vibe I got from the article was that these are albums that middle-aged people who don’t know music buy, based purely on marketing and what they think they *should* be listening to. So I think we’re all good.

  6. I’m screwed. I’ve got about 15. Eeek.

  7. between J. and i there are only three albums in the house, but i did have two of them on tape once upon a time. as for Dido, i bought the CD and promptly resold it after listening to it once. not good.

  8. I have 3 of them…

    1. Coldplay
    2. Alanis Morisette
    3. OK Computer

    But I sure as hell didn’t buy them for the reasons stated in the article. Good lord… I hope I’m not that hopeless musically when I’m in my 30’s.

    I’m embarrassed about owning the Alanis Morisette album, but Parachutes and OK Computer are both very excellent. I like one Dido song, the one from the WB show, Roswell. “Here With Me,” I think it’s called.

    (Oh, I own the entire Radiohead collection and can safely say that Kid A and Amnesiac make me euphorically happy — not scary in the least.)

  9. Yeah. Uh 15 here, too. Oye.
