These Albums Are Twenty Years Old!

It was quite a shock yesterday to learn that Madonna’s Ray of Light album is now twenty years old; where have all those years gone? I was twenty-four then; in many ways, I still feel that age, as if I’m somehow stuck in 1998. If anything, it feels more like a decade ago, not two decades.

Here are the albums I was listening to twenty years ago. Did you have any of these?

Air – Moon Safari


Lauryn Hill – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill


Madonna – Ray of Light


Fat Boy Slim – You’ve come a long way, baby


Saint Etienne – Good Humor


R.E.M. – Up

  1. Is hard to believe it has been 20 years. I think I checked out Madonna’s “Ray of Light” from the library on cassette tape when it came out. I remember going out to nightclubs sometimes that year and songs like Will Smith “Getting Jiggy With It”, “If You Wanna Be My Lover” by the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys telling us they were back with “Everybody” blaring so loud it was hard to have a conversation but did have some good times with friends anyway.

      1. we still have shelves full of CDs, but my wife has introduced me to Tidal, which is the main way I listen to music at home now. However, in the car, CDs still rule…
