Your Desert Island Discs?
« on: August 26, 2013, 03:25:11 PM »
So,Desert Island Discs is a popular long running radio show in the UK,where someone famous will talk about the records they'd take with them if they were being marooned on ,well,a desert island.

So what would your ten records be,and why?

As a starter for ten,here's mine

El Paso-Marty Robbins
American Pie-Don McLean
The Cowboy Song-Thin Lizzy
Sunshine of your Love-Cream
Simple Man-Lynyrd Skynyrd
Sultans of Swing-Dire Straits
Tie your Mother Down-Queen
Wish you were here-Pink Floyd
Setting of the Sun-Seth Lakeman
Whatever you want-Status Quo

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

OK here is where I got confused because I never bought any singles, only LP's back then. To me a record was an entire album. N E Ways......... :P

 :rant: You asked for it Kirky

Little wing-Stevie Ray Vaughn { I get chills cause you can hear the hum of his tube amp}That man made me pick up a guitar. Dad put alot of hours in that summer at the paper to surprise with a trip to the music shop.  Plus Stevie gives a classy nod to Jimi Hendrix in his instermental version of this song.

Stone Cold Crazy-QUEEN -Brad May does some killer riffing with a trippy quick solo.Rockin tune

2112-RUSH [Their Big FU to the music bizz,Plus Rush was my first concert ever and 2112 was played in its entirety during that show and tour for the first time in 20 years or something. Test for Echo Tour

Cortez The Killer{from LIVE RUST-Neil Young [a long time study of mine into the style of neil young guitar solos. Big fan of the Guitar and amp setups for that show. Still saving up for my Perfect Gibson so i can play it right.

Little wing/Maggot Brain-Pearl Jam {live one time deal in Chicago '95} was playing when this batter made it all the way home for the first time.  :tu:  Mike McCready was on a different level of being for that performance. Im sure Funkadellic would agree  :D

Good Morning little school girl-Greatful Dead w/Pig Pen ,The best years of the Dead were with PigPen "Ron McKernan" In My opinion. I forget the the year of the Filmore show '68 or 69. Just a plain fun song to jam along to. And sing to if the BAC is just right  :whistle:

Blues Power-Albert King   [The only man who could pull of playing a Gibson Flying V in a three Piece Suit. The whole song is a fine guitar lesson.

Black No1-Type O Negitive { I can stand by the words"she wont go out cause her roots are showing, DYE'EM BLACK!] My brother and I saw the band about a year before Peter Steele passed away. That guy was a smurfing big built mother smurfer.

Time-Pink Floyd [The reason I love real anolog tape delay so much, Plus Shine on you crazy diamond because kirky made us abide by rules

Axis Bold as love-Jimi Hendrix {the first song I hacked out at a High School Battle of the bands. Along with Folsom Prison Blues and Hey,Hey My,My.We were a dedicated bunch. Our band "Jerrys Kids" came in second to our math teachers sons band. They played covers of smurfing Blink 182. what a slap to the face]

There ya go. Im not into music that much

Only ten SONGS?!? Not albums?  Oh man, this is gonna be difficult...... In no particular order:

Pink Floyd - Dogs.  Animals is my favorite Floyd album, with Dark Side a close second.
The Moody Blues - Ride My See Saw.  A classic from my father's favorite band.  :tu:
The Who - A Quick One, While He's Away (from Live at Leeds).  Great version of a fun little suite of songs.
Cream - White Room.  Wheels of Fire was the album that turned me on to classic rock.
Metallica - Orion. Classic thrash metal instrumental from Master of Puppets.
Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child (slight return).  How can you possibly beat this?
The Grateful Dead - Box of Rain.  American Beauty.  The Dead's studio masterpiece.
The Doors- Peace Frog.  Oh man, that riff.......
Jethro Tull - Locomotive Breath.  Aqualung would be right at the top of my list if this was albums......

And finally,,,,

Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick (album version).  :D  It's the only song on the album.  43:46 of pure goodness!  Win!

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

Ah smurf it, here's ten albums too.  :D

Jethro Tull - Aqualung.
Told you.  ;)
Pink Floyd - Animals.  Dogs, sheep, all sorts of pigs - Roger Waters' psychedelic Animal Farm!
The Who - Who's Next.  Tough call between this and Live at Leeds.  Ask me tomorrow and you might get a different answer.......
Metallica - Master of Puppets.  Their best album, and the last with Cliff Burton.
CCR - Chronicle, Vol 1.  Not a bad track on here.
Cream - Disraeli Gears.  Sunshine of your Love, Tales of Brave Ulyssees, Strange Brew.....
The Beatles - Revolver.  'Nuff said.
Alice in Chains - Dirt.  I wore out several cassette copies of this when it first came out.  :)
Big Brother and the Holding Company - Cheap Thrills.   IMO, Janis had a hell of a voice......
Albert King - Born Under a Bad Sign.  A true electric blues classic.

There's no such thing as "Too pretty to carry".  There's only "Too pretty NOT to carry"...... >:D

I went to see Ian Anderson perform Thick as a Brick in October of last year.  That was the third time I'd seen him, the first two were with Martin Barre.  :tu:  Just a few British bands in my collection.....  ;)

Albums ... off the top without putting any real thought into it ... (in other words I'll probably kick myself for leaving other stuff off)

Queest - Greatest Hits
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction
Pearl Jam - Ten
Extreme - Three Sides To Every Story
Living Colour - Time's Up
Supertramp - The Very Best Of Supertramp
Pink - Greatest Hits ... So Far!!!
Madness - It's Madness
Bare Naked Ladies - Stunt


Singles .... Nah, I'd get too bored of hearing just ten tracks way too quickly anyway

2. Joe Bonamassa - Slow gin
3. Sonata Arctica - Everything Fades to Gray (the full version)
4. Van Canto - Hearted
5. The Black Keys - Little Black Submarines
6. Half Moon Run - Call me in the afternoon


Pff... 4 to go, this is hard...


7. Madness - Nightboat to Cairo
8. Iron Maiden - Fear of the dark
9. Mumford and sons - Babel
10. Flogging Molly - Black Friday Rule


Of course, this is now.. Could be totally different in a week  ::)


Now, some youtubes for the less known music:




And some because I can :)

Classical was written and played by Mason William. The Shadows just did a good version of it. If you get a chance go to youtube and watch williams play it. He is a bad ass classical guiter player. Learning to fly is fun to play, only I play drums, so it just sounds like a bunch of thuds and crashes, in time.....lol

Does the show even let you have 10 singles?  I thought it was only 8, plus a book and a luxury item.

with very little thought going into this;

Procol Harum - Whiter Shade of Pale
Jethro Tull - Budapest
Faith No More - Epic
David Bowie - Heroes
Rush - Spirit of the Radio
The Who - Baba O'riley
Karl Jenkins - In Caelum Fero
Manowar - Defender
Deep Purple - Burn
Queen - Innuendo

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...
