5: Laura Branigan - Branigan
I can still remember sitting on my bedroom floor listening to this tape (I had it on cassette) while playing with my Barbies. Years later after growing up and entering the compact disc era, I added this to my CD collection. It's still my favorite album of Laura's, and when I listen to it now, it's hard to believe she's gone. If you like early 80s pop, you'll like this. This is the album with her huge hit "Gloria", but my favorite is the first track "All Night With Me". Other greats are "Lovin' You Baby", "Maybe I Love You", "If You Loved Me", and "I Wish We Could Be Alone".
4: Fleetwood Mac - Mirage
I think if the only great song on here was "Gypsy", it would still be hard not to rank this in my top five. That song alone is just perfect to me. …
