    + The listed artists are in order of the first letter of the first name listed e.g. David Bowie would be listed under the letter "D"; anything with 'The' as the first word of their bandname, etc, will be listed under the first letter of said band, etc... and yes, I did copy and paste this from the pussywhipped list I made. Proves how lazy I am -_-).
    + This list also includes compilation records, records featuring 'various' artists, and soundtracks to motion pictures.
    + The records listed are 12", unless noted as 7" or any other size.
    + Of course, this list will forever remain incomplete as I will be purchasing more LPs in the future :D

(We had generally sedate parties back then; one of the few times the cops came to bust us was when the Comp Lit folks came with their own mix tape -- a party no-no, if you ask me -- and cranked up Buffalo Stance really loud.) Madonna remained a party staple even after the house changed from its early halcyon life as a predominantly interdisciplinary Southeast Asianist pad (two historians, an anthropologist (that's me), and the lone Comp Lit person) to a full-blown German Studies house. (At that point I was the only holdout, my German limited to the kind spoken in Jim Abrahams and David Zucker's Top Secret!)

    During one of our dance parties, "Into the Groove" came on. People rushed to the floor (mostly the Government people -- they always crashed parties). …
