what album do you wish you'd written?

the title does say it all

compilations and greatest hits packages do not count

what is the album that you wished you'd written and why?

for me, it's joe strummer & the mescaleros' streetcore. more than probably any other single album, it fuses all of my songwriting influences. the johnny cash song that never was, 'long shadow,' moreover, is an incredible self-penned, and unconscious, eulugy on strummer's part.

If you haven't already, check out Global A Go Go. It's my favorite mescaleros album by far.

+1 Both are EXCELLENT CD's and capture the true escence of the bands.

Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
Every song is worthy of being a single, plus add that its their debut album. Every band would love to accomplish that.

I thought about listing that one. Or some of the Beatles stuff. But music is supposed to be about your soul, or something, I guess, and I just didn't feel right.
