Five For Friday: Desert Island Albums

Last week it was books. This week I answer the question, "Which five pieces of music would you take if you were stranded on a deserted island?" (This assumes of course that the island has electricity and a CD player. Or maybe it has mysterious properties like the island on "Lost" and can just power an iPod with its electromagnetic aura or something.)

This one might be tougher than picking five books.

In no particular order:

1. U2, Achtung Baby

2. The Beatles, Greatest Hits 1967-1970 (the "blue album")

3. King's X, Faith Hope Love

4. Johann Strauss, On the Beautiful Danube

5. Caedmon's Call, 40 Acres

I could've put Rich Mullins's Jesus Record in there somewhere too.

How 'bout you?

Wow, this is difficult.

Off the top of my head:

1.) Johnny Cash, "American IV"
2.) U2, "Best of 1990-2000"
3.) Bon Jovi "These Days" (not a "serious" pick, I know - but it's my picks, right) ;-)
4.) Marty Stuart, "The Pilgrim" (not a singles album but an ALBUM album)
5.) Jimi Hendrix, "Live at the Fillmore east"

honorable mention: Jars of Clay "Good Monsters" or "Who We Are Instead"

1.) 30 seconds to mars "beautiful lie"
2.) The glorious unseen "tonight the stars speak"
3.) Muse "Black holes and revelations"
4.) dredg "catch with out arms"
5.) blist "(no title yet 'cause we're still recording/writing it)" (is it too weird to include your own cd???) (hey, it's my island...)

honorable mention: any Disciple album and Staple "of truth and reconciliation"

In no particular order:

1) "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" soundtrack
2) J. S. Bach "Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello"
3) Gustav Holst "The Planets"
4) The Police "Message In A Box"
5) David Crowder Band "A Collision or (3+4=7)"

Is this what it would be like to have only 1 GB of space on a digital player?
