Be boppin round the island...

My choices for music were dictated by the following, in order:

1) albums that I wouldn't get sick of -they had to have stood the test of time already - no need to take a chance on some new CD that I am listening to a lot..
2) the mood that they generate or soothe in me - I needed a variety as there will be good times and bad on the island.
The choices:
1) Tom Petty Wildflowers - this can be the default playlist.
For all the angry times. Why am I on this god-forsaken island?!? Why won't my sexytime men stop talking and build me a better hut? Metallica's S&M album.
Special note: some people are angry at Metallica. I won't have to deal with those people on my island.

And for all the other times - Carole King's Tapestry.

Albums that almost made it and I would like to give a special shout out to:
a) Dixie Chicks -Taking the Long Way
b) Mary Chapin Carpenter - Come On Come On
c) Eagles - Greatest Hits I
d) Morphine - pretty much any CD although Cure For Pain and Like Swimming are probably the best choices
e) Pixies - Wave of Mutiliation (Greatest Hits)
f) Prince - The Hits
g) Garth Brooks - The Hits
h) Bob Seger and Silver Bullet Band - Greatest Hits
I don't think that Greatest Hits CDs are cheating at all.
