  • Mood:
Five desert island CDs for unwinding

These are the CDs I would never wish to be without, but this was a really hard choice. Given the opportunity I would make it Recurring Dream and four other compilation CDs I had burned. Except this is cheating. *g*

(1) The Stone Roses The Stone Roses

(2) Recurring Dream Crowded House

(3) Grand Prix Teenage Fanclub

(4) Koyaanisqatsi Philip Glass

(5) Allegri Miserere and other masterpieces
Not actually for the Miserere but for Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis, which blows my mind every time I hear it

Five more I would include if I got 10 choices:
Screamadelica - Primal Scream; All that You Can't Leave Behind - U2; OK Computer - Radiohead; Indigo Girls -- Best of; Revolver - Beatles

And finally, what are your favourite cover versions?

Mine are:
I Second That Emotion, Japan (Smokey Robinson)
One, Johnny Cash (U2)
People Are Strange, Echo and the Bunnymen (The Doors)
