Desert Island Discs

I saw a friend tonight and he mentioned the notion of the Desert Island Disc Collection. It’s simple, scan through iTunes and make a playlist of the 10 albums you would take if you were stranded on a desert island (and you could only have 10 albums, of course.)

What a hard thing to do. Music addresses so many of the moods I have. Do I pick my 10 favorite moods? Moreover, he made the observation that you have a tension between genres and between best in genre. Quite a challenge, but I have started.

At this point, there are some albums I know need to be on the list. Though they are certain to change as I think through it more, but the following just gotta be on the list.

Love those albums. Good times…

OK, so I dunno yet and I don’t want to commit given the gravity of the topic. But I am thinking, what 10 albums to take?

    You almost had me until Bat of of Hell 3. My first ever album (when I was 5) was Englebert Humperdink.

    Desert Island Discs is a radio show back in the old country. It has been going on for over 150 years. You only pick 8 tracks (not albums), one book and one luxury item.
