OK here's a challenge for you. You are stranded on a desert island with a solar powered cd player. Which 10 albums out of your collection would you like to be your desert island discs ?

these are mine. It was quite hard to wittle it down to 10. I decided not to chose any of my "hits" or "now thats what I call music " compilations cause I ususally get bored of listening to the latest chart releases after a while.

The best of R.E.M.

Led Zepplin - the early days

The very best of the moody blues

A rush of blood to the head- coldplay

Bowie- the ultimate collection

Duran Duran greatest hits

The Beatles blue album 1967-1970

Escapology- Robbie Williams

Echoes- the best of pink floyd

Queen-greatest hits I

I don't know if I'm showing my age a bit with some of my choices.mind you some of them are before my time anyway, I just grew up with my parents playing them.

I've actually heard of most of yours elevatedone . I was agonising over whether to have rolling stones forty licks or not. It just missed out narrowly to Queen.

I know that age will play a part in peoples taste in music but I expect that there will be quite a difference depending on which side of the pond you come from. There are a lot of american groups that I've not heard of and a lot of british groups that never managed to break america.

Hmmm... This ia tough one!
People have already mentioned most of my first choices, lol.

So I'll think of another favourite 10 - shouldn't be too hard, as I have loads of favourites!

AFI - Sing The Sorrow

Alice Cooper - Trash
Metallica - Metallica
Iron Maiden - Best Of The Beast
Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction
AC/DC - Highway To Hell
The Essential Ozzy Osbourne

no offense pantha
I'm just really not in the mood of doing such a tough thought-job right now...or anytime lol!

I love music too much too only choose 10 CDS! I'd rather have none than have only 10 I think...

This way I could sing! Lol.,...and slowly turn crazy... and end up killing my sef cuz I'm a bad singer...

"Greatest hits" and other compilations ought not to be allowed in comparative desert island selections, according to Rolling Stone and NME and the like.

I will return to this some time, but not before including Primal Scream's "Screamadelica" and The Stooges' first album.
