List your favorite album that was released every year you’ve been alive.

I suggest you use Wikipedia’s listings of albums by year (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1996_in_music).

Here are mine:

1982 – “1999,” Prince
1983 – “Speaking in Tongues,” Talking Heads
1984 – “Purple Rain,” Prince
1985 – “Little Creatures,” Talking Heads
1986 – “Graceland,” Paul Simon
1987 – “Substance,” New Order
1988 – “Surfer Rosa,” The Pixies
1989 – “Full Moon Fever,” Tom Petty
1990 – “Bossanova,” The Pixies
1991 – “Nevermind,” Nirvana
1992 – “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde,” The Pharcyde
1993 – “Siamese Dream,” The Smashing Pumpkins
1994 – “Wildflowers,” Tom Petty
1995 – “Maxinquaye,” Tricky
1996 – “Odelay,” Beck
1997 – “OK Computer,” Radiohed
1998 – “Aquemini,” Outkast
1999 – “The Soft Bulletin,” The Flaming Lips
2000 – “The Discovery of a World Inside the Moone,” The Apples in Stereo
2001 – “Comfort Eagle,” Cake
2002 – “Original Pirate Material,” The Streets
2003 – “Chutes too Narrow,” The Shins
2004 – “Funeral,” Arcade Fire
2005 – “Twin Cinema,” New Pornographers
2006 – “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not,” Arctic Monkeys
2007 – “Neon Bible,” Arcade Fire
2008 – “Third,” Portishead

Tough choices:

“Wildflowers” over “Weezer (Blue Album).”

“The Soft Bulletin” over “Remedy” by Basement Jaxx and “Midnite Vultures” by Beck.

“Comfort Eagle” over “White Blood Cells” by The White Stripes, “Gorillaz” by Gorillaz and “Rooty” by Basement Jaxx.
