Desert island albums
Most of you have done this before, I'm sure. If you were to be stranded on a desert island, what five albums would you want to have with you? Double CD/tape/whatever albums count as one album.

Rian D. Spivak 06-21-2005 12:25 PM


Styx - Paradise Theater
Def Leppard - Vault:Greatest Hits
Van Halen - Greatest Hits
Toad the Wet Sprocket - Fear
A New Found Glory - A New Found Glory

I guess that's my choices today. But I would probably choose something different if I was in a different mood.

Betsy Black 06-21-2005 12:46 PM

Grateful Dead, Europe '72
Beatles - White Album
Paul Simon - Graceland
Santana - Supernatural
Leftover Salmon - Euphoria

But, as Rian said, these are subject to change!

And what are yours, btw?

Hmmm. I don't know if live albums or compilations should count. And only 5? That's hard, and most desert islands are bigger than that. While we're at it, wouldn't you just bring your digital music player?

Here's my current list:

Marillion, Marbles (the 2 disc set of course)
Yes, Close To The Edge
Peter Gabriel, Up
Joe Jackson, Night and Day
Traffic, John Barleycorn Must Die

Beatles Sgt. Pepper's
Weezer Pinkerton
Brian Wilson Smile
Modest Mouse The Moon and Antartica
Red Hot Chili Peppers By The Way

Of course, if you could just bring 5 CDs, you could always compress the songs, but that's another issue.

O.C. "jewels"
a reggae tribute to bob dylan
Queens of the stone age "a song for the deaf"
led zepplin "how the west was won"
Black Sabbath "paranoid"
that should do!

Andrew A. Elliott 06-25-2005 03:28 AM

Tom Waits: Big Time
Nick Drake: Five Leaves Left
The Pogues: If I Should Fall from Grace with God
Peter Gabriel: Us
The Clash: London Calling

Hmmmmmm that's a good question.

1. Bob Marley and the Whalers (greatest hits collection)
2. Carlos Santana (greatest hits collection)
3. Beetles -- One album
4. Sublime -- 40oz to freedom
5. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (greatest hits collection)

Since i'm stranded on a desert island, thought I'd start off with some good music while laying by the beach sipping on a few pina colattas. Then some albums when the rum settles in you know what I'm saying :D??
