::: Every once in a while, we all make a personal-intimate list of our favourite Albums.

Those that we can't live without and that we -in theory- would take with us to a far away desert island (if the island were provided with electrical energy and a turn table, a pair of speakers, a bunch of cigarrette packs and a hundred 6 pack of beer).

I found this list in a music site as an interview for some music critic. Very Interesting list. It makes you Wonder.

I'm making a copy-paste of these questions below. It'll make you wonder about some music you love, or hate!

If you want, copy the questions and add your answers. Copy from below the dotted line...and Have fun!.javascript:emoticon('Cool')

No kidding - I think I like a simple "What 10 albums would you take if you were to be stranded on a desert island" hypothetical. Mabe even "What 5 albums....".

...well, I if I had the chance -like Gilligan- to watch 24/7 to a pretty girl like Ginger, I wouldn't mind not play a damn record in that island! Very Happy

Absolutely!

Here’s Ginger using an island made turntable as her accompaniment

My taste has always been a little more toward Mary Ann but I admit to have fantasized about being stranded on a desert island with both of them (and the island turntable). Twisted Evil
