the title does say it all :)

compilations and greatest hits packages do not count ;)

what is the album that you wished you'd written and why?

for me, it's joe strummer & the mescaleros' streetcore. more than probably any other single album, it fuses all of my songwriting influences. the johnny cash song that never was, 'long shadow,' moreover, is an incredible self-penned, and unconscious, eulugy on strummer's part.
