This one can be posted here as BBC and broadcast on old grey whistle test in 1975, BBC therefore no copyright on this version

Mmm of course

Bob Marley - Positive Vibrations

And without a Doubt shown on BBC multiple times and streamed live around the world Faithless at galstonbury 2002

Its about living not just surviving eh?

Kind Regards,

link survival gear includes a 1964 gibson hummingbird and a harmonica (because sometimes blowin' is funner) - but anyways - presuming that i would have an ipod or such toy and an unlimited supply of batteries to run the dang thang and could only have three songs (talk about hell) they would be:

...sultans of swings - dire straits...

...tonight we ride - tom russell...

...bernadette - the four tops...

Just 2

Hallowed be thy name - Iron Maiden

Time to say goodbye - Sarah Brightman / Andrea Bocelli

Anyone familiar with the Documentary "Touching the Void" .

He had survived a 100ft fall, with a broken leg. When he regained consciousness, he took in the rope, and discovered the end was cut, and he realised what Simon had done.

He eventually abseiled from his landing spot on an ice bridge (which broke his fall and therefore presumably saved his life) to presumably the bottom of the crevasse, a thin ice roof, and crawled out back onto the glacier via a side opening.

From there, he spent three days without food and only splashes of water from melting ice, crawling and hopping five miles back to the base camp.


He had a song blarring in his head over and over and over .......

This is Joe Simpson's real-life "survival song"

The tune stuck in your head could be some Dog Food Commercial Jingle ..


Touching The Void (Youku link / full Doc.)

It is a remarkable story , the documentary is well worth the watch.

Do the Evolution - Pearl Jam

Better Days - Citizen King

edit: lots of good suggestions people are saying. I could dig.

I wake up, and check the thread for others' songs, and a couple posts after mine someone posted a clip to that movie.

Ok, so that gave me my *goose-bumps* for the day...

I've been asked by a *lurker* to add a song or replace a song I've listed.
Let me see if I can get the mite to register instead...

just wanted to say the diversity here is freakin most of the selections...atsers are way more deep than yocals like so many great titles, it is practically impossible for someone as indecisive as me.

but i guess ill give it a shot.

Sublime- date rape...not...haha j/k

Sublime- What i got/ Badfish or Zeppelin- Stairway to Heaven

what i got just has the "no genre specific" unbvelievable vibe that makes you wanna listen to it over and over again, and kinda captures the positive side of so cal perfectly...but is a bit too short (now theres a candidate..too short..haha...invasion of the flat booty bit****...dont worry i already slapped myself
) of the greatest songs ever...makes me think...especially since I learned it was satanic!...I know..crazy...never would have guessed...
...but stuff to ponder while completeing menial tasks...and so beautifully produced

Otis Redding- Sitting on the Dock of the Bay or Ben E. King- Stand By Me.

Unbelievable emotion that could help any man sleep..even with the weight of the world on your shoulders...impossible to choose between the two

You might be able to throw in a jack johnson hit or two in there...

Something hard...something that could wake me up and motivate me...something that would help to get my blood going...something to kick in the survival instinct...there are so many in this list its hard to capture the feeling with a few, but here are some that stand out the most for me

Pantera- Walk...
If your not ready to go after that...aint nothing will get ur butt up
Avenged Sevenfold- Scream ( i know..its about least i think...but its the guitar riff..just pumps you up..i use it to get me goin at the gym)
Strung out- Ice of my favorites, just all around kick arse
Metallica- Damage Incorporated

I have to throw in as a consideration ..Eagles- hotel california, Creedance Clearwater, -just about any of them, Misfits- some kinda hate/ where eagles dare, Transplants- tall cans in the air, i want it all, california babylon...aaahhh i cant stop..Rancid, System of A Down, Minor Threat..

ok ..this is ridiculous..have to cut it off there... more...2Pac

Rush - A Farewell to Kings

Boston - Don’t Look Back

CCR - Who’ll Stop the Rain

Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy because it would be like breaking out of prison. TV Diner by ZZ Top because it would be what at least some people woult be eating. And the third song would be The End by the Doors because it would be the end of things as we know it to be, at least for the forseeable future. Until things started to calm down from TSHTPF.
