    Friday OT - Desert Island Band

    Somehow your life goes all Gilligan and you get stuck on a desert island for the remainder of it. (Let's say, 15 years.) You have to choose one band - you can take their entire catalog of songs and albums, but ONLY that band.

    Who do you choose? Do you go quantity over quality, or vice versa?

    Re: Friday OT - Desert Island Band

    I always have trouble with this. I usually come back to the Stones, but there are a lot of good contenders. I mean, a band like RHCP has been around for forever - and most of their recent music is just mediocre, but they had some good stuff back in the day. How do you decide?

    If I'm stuck on an island than it has to be Jimmy Buffett.

    I have to say - one full evening at Margaritaville did me in. I no longer like pina coladas or getting caught in the rain.

    Probably the Doors or Zeppelin............lots of great music, plus they would bring enough drugs that we could have a good time before kick the bucket.

    Works for me!

    I always waver on whether or not it's also okay to bring work by the band members as solo artists, but I think I have to say that's cheating.

    Re: Friday OT - Desert Island Band

    Not a band per say.... but I'm counting it. The entire Cafe Del Mar collection. Volume 13 is my favorite

    "Lamento" is my favorite song on the album.



    The most popular song on the album is "Heading For The Sunrise"

    Heading for the Sunrise - YouTube


    You can see the whole playlist here but it is missing 2 songs on the playlist.

    Café del Mar Vol.13: Melibea - Lamento [Puesta de Sol desde Café del Mar] - YouTube


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 0-2 - .000

    9/22/18 & 9/7/19
    Akron and Iowa State
    CAN'T WAIT!

    I get what your saying. The reason I picked Jimmy is because of how large his collection of songs is and the fact that he at times is a cover band and has lots of cover songs on his albums so he could sing those for me too. Plus if I'm stuck on a desert island i'm not sure I would want a band that would depress me, I would probably need Jimmy and the Coral Reefers constantly pumping sunshine up my *** so I wouldn't go all Tom Hanks in Cast Away.

    The cheerful aspect is a very solid point. I don't think a lot of emo bands would be picked.

    My own band. :)

    I'd like to take classic Van Halen, but not sure I'd want all the drama...

    Just to clarify, are we bringing the actual band or just their music?
