No,You raised a good point...I could think of lots of "soundtracks"

Especially in the 70's

Song Remains The Same-Led Zepplin

Tommy-The Who

and debating is good here...it always equals out

What a debate I started! Really, it doesn't matter to me much if it is nominated or not. I owned it as a child and liked it, but it's not like I am emotionally attached to it. I was merely asking if it was eligible, and seeing that it's not, it's OK. I will rescind that nomination and only have "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" as a nom.

There, debate over.

Jenny, Everybody has seen Jersey Shore and knows the kind of trouble you Jersey Girls can stir up.

Are you sure? What if it would be allowed? ;)

Yes, I'm sure. I was a kid in the '70's and didn't own too many albums. GYBR is one that I came to know as an adult and has some songs I truly love on there.

Besides, there are lots of good choices already!
