Desert Island Discs

Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

Desert Island Discs

Postby Keepcoolbutcare on Thu Aug 11, 2005 5:17 am

All right, your all Tom Hanks (but with electricity! :D ) on a deserted island...what music could you not live without? And I'm going with 10 here, no 5 no 8 (for you Brits!) but a nice round 10. Double discs are OK, box sets are allowed (should see some interesting one's with that). Plus I just wanna know what kinda music my fellow Zoners are into. Ready, set, list!!!

1. Pavement "Slanted and Enchanted--Luxe and Reduxe"
For the days I just wanna slack-off.

2. Sam Cooke "The Man Who Invented Soul"
The voice, the hope, the message...did I mention the VOICE?

3. Miles Davis "The Colombia Years"
4 Discs of Miles bliss...

4. DJ Shadow "Endtroducing...Deluxe Edition"
I don't even have this, but it's double the pleasure apparently. Shadow is my fave DJ ever and this album changed the face of music.

5. James Brown "JB 40: 40th Anniversary Collection"
The Dean of Rock Critics (Robert Christgau btw) said that JB "is the greatest rock and roller of all-time" and Shadow has stated all hip-hop owes him a debt. Neither is faint praise. Both are correct.

6. Nirvana "Nevermind"
I was 17 when this came out. 'nuff said.

7. De La Soul "De La Soul is Dead"
For anyone who says hip-hop isn't intelligent, this is a meta-hip-hop album. And the beats are phenomenal.

8. Howlin Wolf "The Chess Box"
Another one I don't actually own, but it looks better than my best of Vol. I and II. Great blues always makes me feel better for some reason...it'll put my stay in perspective.

9. The Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are You Experienced?"
Tough call here but all the box sets leave something out that I love. So I'll go with the greatest debut in musical history instead.

10. PJ Harvey "Rid of Me"
I'm gonna need to hear a woman. And it'll remind me that fucking is above all else an animal, angry act. And that I miss it.

Apologies to the Wu, Modest Mouse, Radiohead, Deltron 3030, Captain Beefheart, Z-Trip, John Coltrane, Public Enemy and many others...
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

OK. HERE WE GO.


1. Definitely Maybe - Oasis (I was 13 when this animal came out, perfect timing.)

2. Kid A - Radiohead (because, even when I'm on a desert island I will be soaring through the cosmos)

3. Welcome To Sky Valley - Kyuss (i just hope the island has weed on it.)

4. The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses (did anyone really think this wouldn't be here?)

5. The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths (hard to pick one album from this band but "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" is perfect for the castaway hoping against hop.)

6. Cold Water Music - AiM (you can lose yourself for days in this thing.)

7. The Soft Bulletin - The Flaming Lips (if there is weed then wahey, if not I'll just put this on instead.)

8. Twilight - The Twilight Singers (romantic, brooding, baroque and mixed in Hull of all places...reminds me of my girl)

9. Appetite For Destruction - Guns N' Roses (just a fucking classic)

10. Substance - Joy Divison (i'm called TonyWilson for fuckssake, what do you expect?)

I just can't do this! Okay, deep breath, try to find 10 out of 40 or so, off the top of my head. Some of these will be boxes. And I have to already own most of them, right?

1. Bruce Springsteen -- "Tracks" My favorite musician, period.

2. Phil Spector -- "Wall of Sound" God gave Spector modern pop music the way he gave Prometheus fire.

3. Richard and Linda Thompson -- "Shoot Out the Lights" Screw you all for not knowing who they are! No, seriously, possibly Richard's best guitar work and brilliant, brilliant harmonies.

4. Leonard Cohen -- "The Future" Could it get any bleaker, or any warmer?

5. Bob Dylan -- "Blood on the Tracks" It's a cliche, but a spectacular one.

6. U2 -- "The Joshua Tree" And again, if only how they fade up the Edge's guitar on "Where the Streets Have No Name."

7. The Who -- "Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy" Proof that their legacy would have been as strong had they broken up in 1970.

8. "Weird Al" Yankovic -- "Al in the Box" Excessive, perhaps, but you've got to laugh sometimes.

9. Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes -- "Having a Party With Southside Johnny" Another group with no other sympathizers. The best damned white R&B group that ever was (Van Morrison counts as a solo.)

10. Buddy Holly -- "The Complete Buddy Holly" Forget Elvis -- Buddy Holly invented white rock and roll.

Somewhere I need to find a place for Van Morrison's single "Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)". I could wake up to that song every day for the rest of my life, knowing something good was probably waiting.

That song is fucking brilliant. I play it at work all the time and put it on mixes for the ladies. Always gets a great reaction.

I'd go for the self-titled album. Someone said it sounded like it was recorded in the late 1860s, even though phoNographs didn't exist then. Damn.

Another typo. Oy.

Ouch! Is that a dislike of his music or him personally?

I can understand being sick of "Brown Eyed Girl", but "Baby Please Don't Go"?

SINGLES, damn you! We need to get a separate list just for singles! Please?


How many Dennis? 20? 30? 50? Or be really cruel and just a Top Ten Songs?

Reply and I'll start it up.

I have nothing against either, Winslow, and did not mean to impugn. Sorry if, once again, I have suggested such.

Well my Wife listens to DID's quite a bit so I'll go with your official selection process.......

St Etienne - Fox Base Alpha - My No.1, no questions asked favourite album evar.
The Streets - Original Pirate Material - Turn the Page begins and I feel happy to be alive.
Leftfield - Leftism - All time electronic classic, good teenage memories from this one.
M.I.A. - Arular - Just to dance round the beach to.
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights - I'd have to take Leif Erikson.
Massive Attack - Blue Lines - Another memory lane LP.
Beck - Sea Change - Campfire goodness.
Erlend Øye - Unrest - I love this album, it has turned out to be my 'I don't know what to listen to' album cos it reminds me of my Wife.

My tattered copy of Lord of the Flies would go with me and as for luxury item? My Scrabble set, which yes, I would play on my own.

I take it personal mixes don't count? :)

In that case, it goes a little something like this:

1) dredg - Leitmotif | Satisfying my anger at being stuck on an island, while remaining earthy and philosophical.

2) dredg - El Cielo | Pure beauty for the rise and set of the sun. Keeps me grounded. Desert Island? "All you need is a modest house in a modest neighborhood" indeed.

3) dredg - Catch Without Arms | May as well have their other studio album while I'm at it.

4) Mansun - Attack of the Grey Lantern | To remind me of some of the happiest years of my life.

5) Mansun - Six | To remind me of some of the most depressing years of my life.

6) Delerium - Karma | I'll take the version with "Koran," please.

7) Rush - Moving Pictures | Because.

8) Whatever Pink Floyd box set is out there. | DUH.

9) Moby - Play | God do I love that CD. Music to contemplate to.

10) Moby - 18 | More music to contemplate to.

That's just off the top of my head, I guess if I had 48 hours to sample music and make a definitive list, it'd be different. But those mean the most to me in a pinch.

Soundtrack to THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK - my favorite movie score.

R.E.M's LIFE'S RICH PAGEANT - hard-pressed for a favorite, but this one has my favorite song, "Flowers of Guatemala"

Nirvana's MTV UNPLUGGED - not going with NEVERMIND. This one is Kurt at his best.

Husker Du's NEW DAY RISING - "Celebrated Summer" is one of the all-time greatest rock songs ever.

Sufjan Stevens' ILLINOIS - Just beautiful. The movie score to my life.

Drive-By Truckers' THE DIRTY SOUTH - "Goddamn Lonely Love" I'll be singing at the campfire to my volleyball.

Paul Simon's GRACELAND - "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes" - always look to the bright side.

Pearl Jam's TEN - You haven't heard this lately. Do so. It RAWKS.

RHCP's FREAKY STYLEY - "Yertle The Turtle" - still the best RHCP song ever written.

The Complete Johnny Cash (Box Set) - because it's Johnny fucking Cash.

OK--no thinking, no second-guessing, off the top of my head:

COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHY by Minor Threat
AT ACTION PARK by Shellac
VS. by Mission of Burma
UNKNOWN PLEASURES by Joy Division
13 SONGS by Fugazi
AENIMA by Tool
THE FRAGILE by Nine Inch Nails
POST by Bjork
THE PROCESS OF BELIEF by Bad Religion
ENTER THE 36 CHAMBERS by the Wu-Tang Clan
The whole world's wild at heart and weird on top.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - B sides and rarities.

Happy Mondays - Pills, Thrills and Bellyaches

My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

Solesides Greatest Bumps

Nirvana - Nevermind.

David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust

Cornershop - When I was Born for the Seventh Time

Leftfield - Leftism

De La Soul - Three Feet High and Rising

The Avalanches - Since I left you

I've really gone for durability here, and records that I generally play in full - Albums I've listened to a great deal, and the prospect of putting them on, anytime, actually makes me very happy. So it makes for a slightly odd list - even to me.
Subject to revision, obviously.

I definitely want to change at least 4 of mine. Damn I hate looking at these old lists, I always think of ones I forgot.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Actually in my case, I can pinpoint the really happy (and often off-chops) periods in my life when these albums were reigning on my record player/stereo/mp3.

This is a great ear opening thread. Some recommendations I'm checking out.

Nordling or anyone else, what other Sufjan Stevens albums do you recommend? Just acoustic easy going simple stuff. Illionois and Seven Swans sound pretty good right now.

Suprised Stone Rose Stone Roses aren't on here enough. I'll check out Ziggy Stardust too, peeps.
