Ryan Adams, Gold: Adams' "New York, New York" was filmed just days before the 9/11 attacks, the previous Friday, and showed the city bustling with life just days before the tragedy. Also, this dude made us buy a jean jacket. CHL should have been born a chick.
Radiohead, Amnesiac: We had a good friend, Jennie, who burned us this album at her house. The sequel to 2000's Kid A, Amnesiac wasn't as huge with us as the previous disc, but we still spent months with it.
Jay-Z, The Blueprint: "Yo put your number on this paper cause I would love to date ya..." Remember when you had to write numbers down, and not just put them in your phone. We were like cavemen!
