I agree. It'd also save a few fisticuffs fuled by coconut/urine fermented "sauterne." But I'll bet it'd still get all "Lord-of-the-Flies"y pretty fast, dontcha think?

No one caught it, but I was thinking less desert island and more Fahrenheit 451. I guess Ray Bradbury is dead, again. Pretty cool (British) film, too!

I'm assuming desert island, where the Professor (JohnK) has fashioned a CD player, solid state AVR, and three-way speakers entirely out of coconuts, with Gilligan (BobKay) generating electricity via an attached bicycle.

I'd pay good money to watch that remake!

I can't believe I misse this thread over the last couple of days. 10 disks is tough.

My list (in no particular order):

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream Hated this album at first, but then something clicked into place and it has been my favorite ever since.

Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water Every song is catchy. Every song gets stuck in my head. Every song makes me wish I could sing better.

Radiohead - OK Computer An epic album that left me a bit confused after the first listen. I wasn't prepared for such interesting songs and structures. Radiohead, I would like more albums like this, please.

Paul McCartney - McCartney What, a self-recorded homespun record from a member of one of the most influential bands of all time?? That's precisely why I like it. It's intimate in a different kind of way and perfect because of it.

Depeche Mode - Violator A band that's been around for three decades. At the top of their game on this album.

John Lennon - Plastic Ono Band An album of primal therapy and exorcising demons. Political, personal, and revealing.

Iron and Wine - Endless Numbered Days Achingly beautiful. Makes me smell the fresh cut grass of summer and dig my toes into the dirt.

Beatles - Revolver So many iconic albums in their catalog, this one stands out to me as there most consistent.

Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape Big hooks and big applause (from me).

Jimmy Eat World - Clarity Okay, so Bleed American had more hits, why do I listen to this album more? It's sneaky good. Really freakin' good. And Jimmy, why do all your other albums feel distant and calculated?

It's cool to see some of the artists I considered and dropped on other lists.

Cat Stevens' Tea for the Tillerman is an amazing album. Simon and Garfunkel wrote a huge number of incredible songs over their long careers. Depeche Mode are not exactly a household name, yet a great band. I didn't think I would see Dave Brubeck on anyone Else's list.

The repsonses have been pretty cool and really interesting. Thanks everyone!

I'm sort of surprised that there are several artists who pop up on almost everyone's lists. I'm also surprised that some of the same artists appear on both younger and older people's lists.

So many older albums. I guess I can't be sure if I'll really wanna listen to My Chemical Romance in 20 years, even if I'm dead before then. Seems others felt the same way---"If I've been listening to it regularly for 20+ years now, I guess I'd still be enjoying it in the future."

Simon and Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

A classmate and I played Simon and Garfunkel in our high school lip synch contest. We "performed" Mrs. Robinson, which took a weird turn later when another kid realized that he could substitute the name of a fellow student, Margaret Robinson. He went around the halls singing, "So here's to you, Margaret Robinson ..."

Quote:
Radiohead - OK Computer

This album is such a critical darling that I need to dust it off and try it again. Like you, I was underwhelmed at first. Unlike you, I gave up on it. Damn ADHD!

Quote:
Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape Big hooks and big applause (from me).

Big ... me. "Big Me" is on their first album, silly! Seriously, this was in my top twenty and was the painful cut that I alluded to in my post.

Jimmy Eat World - Clarity Okay, so Bleed American had more hits ...

I LOVE Bleed American! It is solid all the way through. I've always wondered why I don't have any of their other albums, so I think I know which one I have to get now.

Thanks, musical brother from another mother!!!

Loc: It's all about the location.
Physical Graffiti, Led Zeppelin
Surrender, Jane Monheit
Brothers in Arms, Dire Straits
Greatest Hits, Eagles(if we're allowed collections)
Mask and Mirror, Loreena McKennitt
Hot Rocks, Rolling Stones
Red Album, Beatles
Chronicles, CCR
Live Rust, Neil Young
Yellow Brick Road, Elton John

any of these could be traded for other titles if someone gets stranded on the island next to me. Brothers in Arms for Crime of the Century anyone?
