The "Greatest Album " thread below inspired this question: If you're stranded on an island or other wise totally isolated from the world, what's the one piece of music or album you'd want to have?

Mine would be a good recording of the Verdi Requiem.

Electricity? ...oh batteries...... die hard? keep on ticking! You would throw it against the rock ledge to keep from going nuts after 2 days.

Whatever it is, no matter how superb it is, once you listened to it a dozen times, you'd hope never to ever hear it again.

I disagree. A truly great piece of music can be listened to again and again and each time there will be new things to discover in it as well as well-loved sections to enjoy. That's what seperates "great" music from merely "good".

I only need one song: Muskrat Love (the Captain and Tennille verson).

That way I would get into the proper frame of mind to kill myself long before I starved to death.

Think I've made my position clear on this, but if not, The Wall.

I wouldn't want anything, because all my favourite tunes are in my head. Don't you know that's why us old guys walk around doing that silent whistle thing that young folk find so amusing. ;)

Impossible. Even with my relatively obscure and rigid musical taste I couldn't imagine having only one piece of music.

(Although the Verdi Requiem might be in the mix.)

Tortellier - and if pushed I'd settle for just the courante from the G major.

Stranded on a desert island? The one song is obvious:

Something that would burn really bright, and for a long time!

Forget about the music!!!!!
The real question is WHO would you like to be stranded on a desert island with?

John Coltrane "Gold"

I could listen to this CD loop forever and hear something different every time.

Beethoven's seventh symphony. I've already listened to it at least a thousand times. I could take it foranother thousand or so. His piano concertos would be tolerable ...

American's Dvorak Quartet. I can never get tired of playing it or listening to it. Ever.
