4 Indigo Girls - Indigo Girls
3 Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman
2 The Smiths - The Smiths
1 David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars

I didn't mark any David Bowie or Queen albums, as I seem to have only compilations of them. I believe I have the Hedwig soundtrack, but I would have to check. The Pet Shop Boys albums are all the result of a recent eBay shopping spree.

Isn't it great that Rufus Wainwright and Scissor Sisters are both on there twice? (HINT: there is only one correct answer to that, if you are unable to give it, do not answer at all...)

Oh dear, we only have the Pet Shop Boys in common. Our flatshare would be a 1980s gay disco!

I mostly hate other people's lists. I only care about my own.

I try to avoid other people's lists, so that I don't get irritated and start complaining about what's missing or included.

You ought to add Laura Nyro's Gonna Take a Miracle, and everything else buy her.
Give those Rufus Wainright CDs to someone who is deaf.
