Stranded on an island - pick 10 CDs
 
Let's say you're stranded on an island and you make take only 10 CDs to listen on a solar-powered stereo. Which 10? I have about 700 CDs so it is VERY hard to limit to 10, These remind me of different times in my life and this music always moves me.

Here's my list, in no particular order:

Perez Prado: Greatest Hits

Tom Ze: The Hips of Tradition

Ana Belen/Victor Manual: Mucho Mas Que Dos

Skeleton Crew/Fred Frith: Step Across the Border/The Country of Blinds

Bhangra is Black: DJ KRS and Lucky Johal

Beirut: Gulag Orkestar

Psychic TV/ Genesis P. Orridge: Ultradrug

Aisha Kandeesha's Jarring Effects: Shabeesation

Gavin Friday: Shag Tobacco

Iron Maiden: Killers

Re: Stranded on an island - pick 10 CDs

2) Pink Floyd - The wall

4) Metallica - master of puppets
5) Rush - Hemisphere (cant live without ''La villa Strangiato'')

7) Queen - a night at the opera
8) Iron Maiden - number of the beast (a guilty pleasure!!)
9) Porcupine tree - fear of a blank planet

You can do it if you really try. It makes you think about what you like, and why.

For everyone who has already answered the question, you may now pick another 10. You have 20 CDs you make take, and you've already picked 10.

Here are my next 10:

U2: The Unforgettable Fire

U2: The Joshua Tree

Motorhead: Iron Fist

Ornette Coleman: The Art of the Improvisers

Batacumbele: En Aquellos Tiempos

Munequitos de Matanzas: Oyelos de nuevo

Diamanda Galas: Plague Mass

Herbie Hancock: Maiden Voyage

The Modern Jazz Quarter: Pyramid

Public Enemy: It Take a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

I'll get sick of them all probably. =p

hey DMC, this isn't the survivor show where you can just ferry across and pick up another 10 CDs!

Ozzy Biz 12-06-2008 06:54 AM

Re: Stranded on an island - pick 10 CDs
 
Tough one... very tough

Clutch - Robot Hive / Exodus
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - DIG!!! LAZARUS!!! DIG!!!
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Led Zeppelin - 1
Jurassic 5 - Power in Numbers
The Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
Neil Young - Harvest
A Perfect Circle - The 13th Step
The Pixies - Doolittle


I think that's the best I can do for now... the problem with these is you ALWAYS forget certain records that really should be on the list so it's never perfect. I'd be pretty happy with this one though

Re: Stranded on an island - pick 10 CDs
 
Well, very hard.
Let's see:

The Beatles - The Beatles
AC/DC - Powerage
The Roots - Things Fall Apart
Dave Matthews Band - Live Trax Vol. 10 Lisbon
Pink Floyd - Meddle
Frank Zappa - Joe's Garage
Gov't Mule - Dose
King Krimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
Rush - A Farewell To Kings
Thelonious Monk - Brilliant Corners

That's of course not my 10 favourite albums or something, that would be impossible, but it's a pretty nice selection.


I sincerely hope someone will remember to bring a cd player to the location of the stranding. And a lot of batteries too, for that matter.

I will leave my CDs and bring my ten favorite ermm..."entertainers"

hauk 12-07-2008 08:01 PM

Re: Stranded on an island - pick 10 CDs
 
That's tough. Here's a try off the top of my head:

Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
David Torn/Tom Rainey/Craig Taborne/Tim Berne - Prezens
65daysofstatic - The Destruction Of Small Ideas
Less Than Jake - B Is For B-Sides (great album but I feel like it's so short that it would almost be a waste.... naw)
Thursday - War All The Time
Copeland - In Motion
Streetlight Manifesto - Somewhere In The Between
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
Less Than Jake - Borders & Boundaries
Thursday - A City By The Light Divided

Now if I look back over the list I'll find all sorts of things wrong with it, but it's still probably the best I can do.
