i know, it's usually 'desert isle discs' but not this time. This time, what if- what if you were stranded on a deserted isle. On that island with you and the coconut trees is a cd player with batteries that never die. In that cd player is a disc with your favorite songs. Say, no more than 30 tunes. There's an abundant supply of coconuts and maybe some boxes of tim tams that have washed ashore. What songs would you chose to listen to for what could be- the rest of your life?!?!

Your Hidden Talent



You have the natural talent of rocking the boat, thwarting the system.
And while this may not seem big, it can be.
It's people like you who serve as the catalysts to major cultural changes.
You're just a bit behind the scenes, so no one really notices.

refletcing the possible moods of solo island dwelling...

I’m bored

The last unicorn - america
All star - smashmouth
One good reason – eric stuart
Lightning crashes – live
Electrical storm – u2
Long day – matchbox 20

I’m lonely

Gone to the movies – semisonic
The scientist – coldplay
Breathe no more – evanescence
Never tear us apart – inxs
Light at the end of the tunnel – something for kate
Better be home soon – crowded house

Well, maybe it’s not so bad…all this time and space to myself…

That ain’t bad – ratcat
Boys don’t cry – the cure
Always – blink 182
Angels - john farnham
China girl – david bowie
Sunsets - powderfinger

Screw this, I’m getting drunk!

Hey ya – outkast
Shut up – simple plan
Singing in my sleep – semisonic
Summer of 69 – brian adams
Like a prayer – madonna
Always – bon jovi

My head hurts…

Pain – four star mary
Give me novacaine – green day
Mr brightside – the killers
True tears of joy – hunters and collectors
November rain – guns and roses
Let it be – the beatles

Smile

We'll just pretend that we're within swimming distance when the tide is low.

i keep thinking of songs i needs to add but can't decide what to take off...might have to opt for "Silver Wings" in stead of "Mama Tried" and ditch the college fight song so i can add the absolutely necessary "Ripple" by the Grateful Dead.

i was gonna chose 30 really long songs, songs over 10 minutes long, but those songs tend to get monotonous after awhile. Maybe i should have picked 30 songs i only kinda like so that they would grow on me while stranded on the isle. Most of the songs on the list i made are earworm songs and i'd need them so i can scratch that earworm itch. Smile
