I did take this more than seriously.
I spent about 10 months, going back and forth, adding things, dropping things, changing my mind a million times, till this was the ultimate final list of albums I would take with me if I were to be banned to a deserted island.
- Glenn Hughes
- Philip Catherine
- Pat Metheny
- Jeff Wayne
- Blue Oyster Cult
- Mitch Watkins
|Bridge To For Ever|
|Burning Japan Live|
|Bright Size Life|
|Conflict And Dreams|
|War of The Worlds|
|Fire Of Unknown Origin.|
|Strings With Wings.|
Given the amount of thought I put into this and the diligence, these really are by far, the ONLY albums I have NEVER gotten tired off and that I know I will never ever get tired off.
I made that list after sifting through about 40-50,000 songs, spread out over probably about 5,000 to 6,000 albums.
I had 7 other very strong contenders competing for the spot in the above list, but sharing those here would take away of some of the magic of the above top 10 choices… so I will keep that my secret.
For those who find it odd that I, always claiming to be so busy, could possibly want to spend the time on something that seems so useless as above endeavor: “This was important to me because the thousands of decisions involved in this process, further solidified who I really am as a musician and what I am really in love with musically”.
I saw this as an important exercise on my musical journey.
If you were to be forced at gunpoint to have to choose your top 10 fav albums, and those were the only 10 albums you could ever listen to again, what would be in your list?
Share it cause I am anxious to find out. 🙂
