Winter will soon be here, the snow is 5 feet deep, the power is off and your stranded with one CD and a battery operated…….

One More Pina Colada, Please!

.

Nah…., lets try this (it’s warmer): Your rich uncle gives you a beautiful, warm, but isolated  tropical island (shelter, food and clothing-optional- provided) but you have to promise to stay there for 5 years and you can take a limited amount of possessions. Items you can take?  Just 3 albums/CD’s .  What are your picks, and what are the best cuts.

FIVE YEARS, THREE ALBUMS.  YOU BETTER HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!

I was introduced to Gustav in the 60’s, I still like to listen to him.  Light, dark and everything in between.

Mahler: Symphony No. 2

I used to travel form the UP of Michigan to Florida and back and this one I played to start my journeys.  So maybe this one to remind me of
Road Trip!  If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane!

Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes

OH NO! Only one more?  Has to be a little dancing and  Rock n’Roll!

Chuck Berry – Too Much Monkey Business

HELP!  Can you send me more?

(Pina Colada

3 oz light rum
3 tbsp coconut cream
3 tbspcrushed pineapples )

If I was a FOX news viewer, I’d be scared into preparing for the worst… Which would mean that I’d end up taking a CD with Sounds of the Ocean, one with Sounds of the Rain, and the last… (no doubt) an album with the sounds of artillery shells constantly exploding.

…what’d I win?

Can’t live without my Bach:

Living, contemporary composer I’ve fallen in love with, Jennifer Higdon…well, her music, not her…not that there would be anything wrong with that…

But I’d have to have some Robert Johnson, too:

It’s impossible to imagine not getting sick of ANY music if you were limited to only three, unless you forced yourself to only listen to any one thing twice a year or something.
But I know I’d choose the White Album, because I haven’t gotten sick of it yet!

My latest favorite (to an obsessive degree) song. Am I the only person who listens to a song over and over and over?
