Ok, if you were stranded on a deserted Island with a CD player and lots of batteries, what 10 original artist CDs would you want with you (excluding soundtracks containing songs by various artists, various artists compilations, box sets or greatest hits CDs)?

As a bonus--If you could have 12 CDs if number 11 was a soundtrack and number 12 was a greatest hits (or box set)what would they be?

I will log in and answer later.

Ok,
Robert Cray: Midnight Stroll, I Was Warned (all of his stuff is very cool R&B)
Bonnie Raitt: Luck of the Draw
Queen: Night at the Opera
Supertramp: Greatest hits, particularly like "The Logical Song"- I think the name of the CD is Paris
Marvin Gaye's Greatest Hits
Matchbox 20- Mad Season
Dave Brubeck: Take Five
Glenn Miller's Greatest Hits (just so I can dance)

I know you said "No Greatest Hits" but sometimes it's hard to find particular CDs. The classics were already posted! Is that better?

Well, I am not a huge music fan, so I'd really prefer greatest hits of all of them, and in some cases, I wouldn't choose them if i couldn;t have greatest hits, but out of the 10, I will mention these:

Songs in the Attic - Billy Joel
Steppin Out - Joe J.
That's the Way of the World - EWF
Zenyatta Mondatta - Police
Cosmic thing - B52s
Goodbye YB Road - Elton

Oh CubDave, you have the same choices I would make! Although I would like all of Billy Joel's stuff. I love his stuff because he sings in my key! (I definately do not have a girly sounding voice.)

I might subsitute Joe J. with Santana Supernatural. Or maybe Salvador.

Well then I guess T would have a real problem with Barry Manilow. I happen to think both Barbara and Barry have amazing voices. Very soothing!!!!!!!!!!!

Skye2477--Is it "Life's Rich Pageant" or "Lifes Rich Pageant" without the apostrophe--it is both ways on the LP (how old I am). Also, don't forget the Best of Ringo Starr. For a couple of years after the Beatles breakup, he amazingly had the most successful solo career of all the Beatles. FUN STUFF! He never took himself too seriously (like, say, John Lennon). "No, No Song,' "You're Sixteen," (ah, Sam Cooke), "Photograph," and "It Don't Come Easy." Of course, reality quickly set in and Ringo's solo material was largely forgotten and his newer stuff just wasn't as fun. His recent All-Star concerts are wonderful fun though.

CubDave--Isn't it Barbra, not Barbara.

Man, we have good taste in music: How about: Heart.

Love Fleetwood Mac, Wingspan is a great pick, Led Zep....

I have about 200 greatest hits discs and about 1100 albums total. By collectors standards, I am just a neophyte.

CubDave - I hate to do this to you, but as our attorney pointed out, you cannot even spell Barbra, so you cannot take that album. It's for the best, as her politics would not go over well on the island - and that voice would just remind you of the politics.
