The fine folks at Join Something are running their first blog challenge – 10 Albums I Would Take To A Desert Island. Go on over there and take a gander at it. The site itself is new, and it is based on the cool idea of having one site to visit to learn about blog challenges.
Anyway, back to the challenge itself. Now, I’m not sure why these sorts of lists involve being on a desert island all the time. I’d much rather be on a temperate island with plenty of clean water and a variety of food. Also, a solar, wind or water-powered electric generator would be nice, too. While I’m at it, I’d like a sturdy building with air conditioning for the summer and heat for the winter, indoor plumbing, and a natural gas supply. But, I digress.
So, the albums I’d pick, in no particular order, are:
- Boston – Boston
- Prince – The Hits/The B-Sides
- Run DMC – King Of Rock
- Frank Sinatra – Nothing But The Best
- Kraftwerk – The Mix
- 48th Highlanders Of Canada – Scotland The Brave
- Enigma – MCMXC a.D.
- Phil Collins – No Jacket Required
- Rodney Atkins – If You’re Going Through Hell
- Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Etc.
What sucks is that I’m limited to ten. I love music, and can’t possibly be happy with only ten albums, but, hey – that’s the name of the challenge.
You can see that I have an eclectic taste in music. This sample doesn’t cover anywhere near all the things I like. It also is limited to what I could find online at all.
So, there you have it. As per the challenge guidelines, you’ll see my next post on Monday.
