More music fun-desert island-4 CDs..

Which 4 CDs (or albums for us old folks) would you take? You have a way to play them-No room for full collections of…
Here’s my choices:

  1. Jesus Christ Superstar. It is an excellent rock album and fairly complex.
  2. Beatles Red Album. Gotta have the classic Beatles-I never will get tired of them.
  3. .38 Special, Flashback. Good southern rock. Plus I just really like them.
  4. Cowboy Up #1 PRCA Album. Gotta have some country and this is a good mix.

1)Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle
Greatest hits compilation. Every song is a classic
2)Beatles Red Album - (double disc, counts as 1?)
I have to agree, 67-70 was better than 63-66, and I could not choose any 1 album
3)Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood
Debut and best album. I can listen to the songs “Lenny” or “Rude Mood” over and over. Just saw the movie Sixteen Candles on Tv for the first time in years, and realized that “Lenny” is playing in the background when Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald are sitting in the car talking, and he asks for her panties.
4)Chemical Brothers Dig Your Own Hole

  • I need my bass, and I think this is one of the best albums of the 90’s*

Damn, only 4, that was too hard, and I know in five minutes I will change my mind and probably have 4 totally different albums.

I’m the girl that’s constantly bitching about radio overplay, but if I had to be stuck listening to the same four CDs over and over again, I suppose I’d choose:

Paul Simon, Negotiations and Love Songs

Fiona Apple, Tidal

Bloodhound Gang, One Fierce Beercoaster

Dave Matthews Band, Crash

I don’t suppose it’d be possible to make a radio out of some coconuts and seaweed so I could at least tune into NPR, would it?


Veni, Vidi, Visa … I came, I saw, I bought.

SHeDAISY - The Whole SHeBANG
Jimmy Buffett - Songs You Know By Heart
Ty Herndon - What Mattered Most
Billy Dean - Greatest Hits

Hard to pick just four. Let’s see…

  1. Any good recording of Dvorak’s 9th Symphony (New World). My all-time favorite piece of classical music.
  2. YesClassicYes Contains all their biggest hits from the 70’s.
  3. Weather ReportHeavy Weather The ultimate jazz-fusion album. Contains the now-standard “Birdland”.
  4. Blood, Sweat & Tears3 Why? Cause I like it. A lot.

Ask me again tomorrow, and I’d probably give you a completely different list. (Except the Dvorak, maybe.)

Barenaked Ladies, Stunt
Allman Brothers, Eat a Peach
Something by Clapton, have to think on which one
Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

I take it I can’t burn a compilation CD. Foo. In that case…

Diva, Annie Lennox
Stones in the Road, Mary Chapin Carpenter
Ninth Symphony, Beethoven
Nether Lands, Dan Fogelberg


Someday we’ll look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject…
