AWD was talking to a friend the other day about what 5 albums the Big Sexy would take with him if he was trapped on a desert isle. Without Ginger or Mary Ann, of course. If I had those two babes with me on an island, all I would need is some Teddy Pendergrass, baybah.
I have been thinking about this a while and thought there’s no way I could only take 5 albums. I haven’t even begun to contemplate where the electricity would come from on the island! But, that small issue aside, AWD has been thinking of the top 10 albums he would take if I would never leave the island or hear any other music again. Or if there were no Ginger or Mary Ann.
Here’s my list:
1. The Beatles – Abbey Road
2. The Who – Tommy
3. The Beatles – White Album
4. Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffiti
5. Pat Matheney – Letters From Home
6. Pink Floyd – Dark Side of The Moon
7. Beethoven – 9th Symphony
8. Rush – Hemispheres
9. Leonard Cohen – Live In London
10. Bob Marley – Greatest Hits
But those are some of the Big Sexy’s choices off the top of my head. I’m leaving out a lot of good stuff in jazz, ska, country, rock, soul, Latin music and classical music that I love. It would be hard to think of not hearing any Al Green again. Or the Stones. Or Willie! Sh*t! I better stay off that island and stay close to my iPod!
What are your top 10 choices? I bet they might be close to as good as mine!
Open Post – we haven’t had an open post in a while and AWD is just giddy over the passing of Mr. Potato Head down in Venezuela! If only it was Fidel! But I’ll take the deaths of comm-a-nist dicatators any way I can get them. Feel free to openly post what’s on your mind here.
Music That Doesn’t Suck tonight comes from the great Leonard Cohen. If AWD could write lyrics like anyone, it would be Leonard Cohen. Here’s The Future:
Here’s “Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye:”
And the beautiful “Who By Fire:”
And finally, one of AWD’s favorite songs of all time. “Suzanne.”
