This week I'm asking you questions!
So. Today, I'm going to invite you play along with a "thought exercise" Tom and I have been thinking about (off and on) since last summer. Oh, it's nothing hard or confusing. Just a bit of fun to rumble around with. Here goes . . .
Let's pretend . . . you're headed to a desert island. On this island, there is a very fine, old school stereo system with a turntable . . . but no albums. (And there is no internet, so no ability to stream your favorite playlists.) You have room for five albums in your "luggage." Which albums will you bring with you?
(You don't have to come up with a list of 5 here, but that's the ultimate goal. After several months of considering this question - and listening to several albums that are/have been in contention - we still don't have a final list of 5. . . I'm just interested in the albums you'd be considering.)
As for me . . . well. As I mentioned above, Tom and I have been debating this very question for several months. We've suggested various albums to each other, played them, and rejected most of them. (With only space for 5, you really have to be choosy, y'know? You have LOVE every song on the album - not just one or two favorites. . . ) At the end of the day, we've only ended up with THREE "for sure" albums: Fleetwood Mac Rumours, Rolling Stones Some Girls, and Nirvana Nevermind. There are many, many others still in contention: The Beatles White Album (or maybe Abbey Road instead?), Carole King Tapestry, Doobie Brothers Minute by Minute, CSNY Déjà Vu (or maybe 4 Way Street instead?), The Eagles Hotel California, Bruce Springsteen Born to Run??? You can see the problem here . . .
How about YOU?
I'm eager to hear which albums you'd pack along!
