Interesting question.

I doubt this would've been a good exercise for me at the time, as I'm an "Exhaustive Completest". Every list I make has to be as complete as possible, and if I didn't have access to every single album that came out that year, my "EC" OCD would kick in and I'd probably go nuts. That's why making lists in the internet age works well for me. I have lists upon lists of information to draw from.

The only music list I made was in grade school, for a class project (wasn't even graded). I was collecting a list of Novelty songs from the 50s and 60s. The list wasn't supposed to be a long one, but I made it into one. I listened to an oldies station for hours a day. I kept calling in and asking for novelty songs. I went to libraries and searched for books on the subject. Anyway, the list was super long. The teacher was shocked that I spent so much time on it. But nothing else came of it. Except the self-satisfaction of completing it...
