Desert Island Discs:
You have the foresight to know that you will soon soon be stranded on a deserted island. Which 10 Cds will you bring with you? The rules are: No Greatest Hits albums, No Compilations: GO!
My picks: (in no particular order)
Mazzy Star- So Tonight that I Might See
Indigo Girls- Indigo Girls
Radiohead- The Bends
David Sylvian- Secrets from the Beehive
Lloyd Cole- Rattlesnakes
Cowboy Junkies- Trinity Session
AC/DC- Back in Black
Pearl Jam- 10
David Bowie- Ziggy Stardust
Jimi Hendrix- Axis, Bold as Love
I know,it's damn hard, I've already thouht of 10 others I CANNOT LIVE without! And of course I reserve the right to update my list in May. Or perhaps it will be June.... :)

    ok, there's a reason that a large percentage of my livingspace has always been filled with a high tonnage count of records/discs/tapes whatever....
    I've thought about making a list like this before, but thought how it would change every few years---some things that meant a lot to me then might not seem so important now.
    A lot of the music I chose is "old"
    (not beethoven old, but "pop culture old")---partly cuz, even when I was in High School say, a good deal of the music I bought/listened to was a generation back from what my peers listened to, and also cuz I'm not sure if the newer bands I listen to today have earned their way into that shelf of timelessness...ok, almost done with my excuses...only to say...there's no Dylan, Hendrix, Clash and only one Beatle album....obviously I'll need more than 10 .

    Joni Mitchell---Blue
    The Beatles ---Revolver
    Brian Wilson---SMiLE
    John Lennon--Plastic Ono Band
    Beethoven---9th Symphony
    The Who----Sell Out
    The Kinks-VillageGreenPresSociety
    The Ramones--Rocket To Russia
    Jonathan Richmond--ModernLoversLive
    Tom Waits --SwordfishTrombones
    Pink Floyd --Meddle

    see, like I said, more than 10---when that Cowboy Junkies album came out, I 'member listening to it alot. And that is a great Radiohead album--and of COURSe Axis--also my personal fave of H's studio albums.See, 10 is never enough---greedy me.

    okay...I've been thinking about this all day - really brought my productivity down.... Hard to limit to only 10, but I thought it was important to have a lot of variety: 'cause if I'm gonna be stuck, I KNOW my ADD will kick in and make me go nuts if all my music sounds the same...so I thought I had to have a little of this and a little of that. So, here's my list, in no particular order:
    Isley Brothers - Essential Isley
    Brothers
    Cat Stevens - Numbers
    Indigo Girls - Swamp Ophelia
    Cheap Trick - Live at Buddokan
    The Beatles - Revolver
    Eric Clapton - Blues
    Meatloaf - Bat out of Hell
    Ray Charles - anthology
    Rod Stewart - Every Picture Tells a Story
    Wicked - The Soundtrack

    Hmm...that's the list as of today...this moment....subject to update, redirect, change, etc.

    this was a fun challenge--thanks!

    Led Zep----Led Zep 2
    Led Zep----Houses of the Holy
    Doors ---- Waiting for the Sun
    Nick Drake--Five Leaves Left
    Michael Jackson--The Wall
    Gillian Welch--Hell Among The Yearlings
    Marvin Gaye---What's Going On
    John Mc Laughlin--Electric Guitarist
    Acetone---Acetone
    Tchaikovsky--Romeo and Juliet Overture

    Led Zep 2 because every track is brilliant.

    Houses of the Holy because "The song remains the same".

    Waiting for the sun because "Summer's Almost Gone".

    Five leaves left because of "The River Man" and "Fruit Tree". Two of the most beautiful pieces ever (brings tears to my eyes) and he was a poet.

    The wall, a classic album, reminds me of Marcel's place in Bangsar and the happy days of the sun.

    Hell among the yearlings because of the simplicity of beautiful songs.

    What's going on, his best music ever.

    Electric Guitarist because Marcel reminded me of it, he excels.

    Acetone because there are some beautiful moments that touch my soul.

    Romeo and Juliet because I heard it as a child and it fills me with feelings of beauty, happiness and sadness.

    Thanks for rising to the challenge. Think I may have to take you all to the island with me, if only to expand my listening options :)

    hey! how about 10 people (dead or alive) that you would most like to be stranded with?

    so...on an island with dead people? is it a small island?
    would it pose a health risk?
    (har har)---to Kien---I couldn't pick ONE led zeppelin album--it'd be nice if we'd been allowed to bring that big fat box set.

    "Hey mister thereminman" (geddit?), I was completely down in the dumps not so long ago and carried on regardlessly with my things. Put Led Zep on and almost in an instant, after a few bars of the Immigrant song ("How The West Was Won'), I was catapulted into a different dimension. Uplifted beyond theremin frequencies of the most exquisite kind.
