Your Desert Island Playlist
« on: January 11, 2020, 04:09:18 PM »
Youíre trapped on a desert island. You have one 12 song CD/playlist that may just be the only 12 songs youíll ever hear again in your life.

What ya got?

I myself want a mixture of different songs: upbeat, sad, rockn, slow, etc... the one thing Iíll lean to is songs that are on the longer side. Only 1 song per artist.

1. Gimme Shelter - the Rolling Stones
2. Ten Years Gone - Led Zeppelin
3. One - U2
4. Heroes - David Bowie
5. Iím Just A Man - INXS
6. L.A Woman - The Doors
7. Jokerman - Bob Dylan
8. Baba OíRiley - The Who
9. Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
10. Black - Pearl Jam
11. Wheat Kings - The Tragically Hip
12. Backstreets - Bruce Springsteen

Definitive U2 Top 10: 1. One, 2. Bad, 3. With Or Without You, 4. Running to Stand Still, 5. So Cruel, 6. Ultraviolet, 7. I Still Havenít Found What Iím Looking For, 8. Hawkmoon 269, 9. Red Hill Mining Town, 10. Luminous Times

On the UK radio show Desert Island Discs you only get eight choices, one of which is the castaways favourite.  You also get to take a book and a luxury item.

For the purposes of reading and enjoyment...this Thread is RIGHT up my street. The kind of thread i love to see. But, im wondering if i have the knowledge of music to take part (im lousy with song titles). I will need to have a real good think about this. I dont want to muck it up.

In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world
