Sinead O'Conner The Lion And The Cobra (1987)
Tegan: "My mom would blast this record so loud in the van. I vividly remember us all screaming along with the track 'Just Like You Said It Would Be' and our best friend Christina and her brother covering their ears looking terrified. We were definitely influenced by a lot of female musicians growing up but Sinead was definitely a major vocal influence when we started writing and making our own music. Stand out track: 'Troy.'"
