My 5 CD's

Who even buys CD's anymore? But here is a fun little game to play: If you were stranded on a desert island (why is it always a desert island? I want a jungle island with a fresh water source please) with a diskman and unlimited batteries, what 5 CDs would you want? No compilations or "best of" albums allowed.

1. Tori Amos - Under the Pink (Little Earthquakes takes a close 2nd)

2. Bjork - Post. It was hard to narrow her down to 1 album. I like so many!

3. Sarah Mclachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstacy. SO sing-along-able.

4. The Cure - Wish. Another band that I had a hard time narrowing down. I like almost every album they have ever made. Even the B Sides ones. But Wish has more of my favorite songs than any other album.

5. Indigo Girls - Rites of Passage. There's no group/musician I love to sing along with more than the Indigo Girls. They are amazing. As far as albums, it was hard. There are a lot of songs that I love by them, but no 1 album contains enough of my favorites! I wish I could've done a compilation CD for this choice. Oh well. I also wouldn't have chosen this CD just based on the cover. I know it was the 90's, but what were they thinking???

What about you? Which would be your 5?

Wow, we really have the same taste in music, I love all of these. I didn't know you were a Tori Amos fan! Under the Pink would definitely be in my top five too. Eric's first Christmas present to me after we got married was tickets to see her on her Scarlet's Walk tour, it was amazing!

Boy we sure have different musical taste. Bjork? Iiiinteresting. I'll have to think about this.

You and I have the same taste in music too. Tori Amos is totally in my top 5, although Little Earthquakes would be my choice. And Fumbling Towards Extacy and the Indigo Girls are definitely in my top 5 too. I think my 5th would be Toad the Wet Sprocket Dulcinea. But then again, I also have every Cure album ever made. Althought I doubt that I've bought a CD since all of these.

I haven't listened to a couple of these. I have never been able to get into the Indigo Girls. Great list though!

Thanks for playing :)

Arianne - I totally respect your lists! You are right on - and the movie list you gave me? AWESOME. I will always go to you for advice.

You and I have different tastes in music, except for Sarah. But at least you don't have country music among your favorites.
