Jen made a few Desert Island style compilation CDs the other day for some people she knows,
Its got me thinking. I made a list of songs, however compiling a Desert Island disk is a hell of a lot different from doing a comp cd for someone.
1. These have to be songs that you have always loved and will continue to love
2. These have to be songs that if someone said you could never hear these songs again you would be most upset
3. Ten Songs
I think I short-listed about 30 songs but finally got it down to ten
Some of my dilemmas are;
1. I would like either Atmosphere or Love Will Tear Us Apart By Joy Division, I would also like Crystal Or Blue Monday By New Order. I would also like Getting Away With It By Electronic.
Theres three bands that are all connected to New Order Joy Division and also feature Bernard Summer
2. I would like a Post Rock song on there since Post Rock has influenced me and been a big part of my life for years. As far as i'm concerned there are 2 Post Rock songs that are seminal
Mogwai - Fear Satan
Mono - The Kidnapper Bell
3. I WANT MORE SONGS
Here are the ten Desert Island Disks songs that I consider seminal in my life, These are songs I cant live without and will love forever!
The names are click able and will take you to the song should you want to hear them!
1. Grammatics - Relentless Fours
2. REM - Man On The Moon
3. Owl City - Fireflies
4. Fountains Of Wayne - Hey Julie
5. Spin Doctors - Two Princes
6. Take That - Never Forget
7. The National - Fake Empire
8. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Hysteric
8. New Order - Crystal
10. Mono - The Kidnapper Bell
