gin blossoms / counting crows are albums i'd like to consign to a desert island, and then sink like atlantis. thats TOTAL chick bands.
bush i'm not crazy about either, but it doesn't offend me nearly as much.
now, purple rain was on my list for years and years, but i think its finally starting to show some dating... still great, but not timeless.
btw hum, u had zuma for young...
Yeah, I had to pick "Show" b/c it had most of what I needed... but no Lovesong. At least I don't think. I can't remember it being on there. But hey, everything's a sacrifice under these conditions.
And GB and CC may very well be total chick bands, but man, I loved them! And on a desert island, you don't want to be super-depressed. Which is why I couldn't have any Tupac, Dre, or Snoop. Not b/c the albums weren't good or I didn't love them, but b/c on a desert island, I need something that makes me feel better than those do. And GB and CC do that.
The same way that some of you guys considered not needing something you knew completely by heart in an actual desert island situation, I must consider what would keep me sane.
And Bush debuted when I was first starting to even care about music. My first CD I ever owned was The Offspring's SMASH album, and I loved it so much I could barely stand it. Self-esteem and Bad Habit are still two of my fave songs ever. Bush came out the next year, and that album had Glycerine, Machinehead, and Comedown. Totally, totally awesome.
Now, if I could do it over (and I told you guys I'd do this!) today I'd cut Bush and add NIN "pretty hate machine." Can't believe I forgot it!!
And I thought about depeche mode, but like you with The Cure, there was no one album I could choose. Also, if you're ever in a situation where you might think about offing yourself, depeche mode would probably hurl you over the edge. So I'd avoid that in any desert island situation.
And why'd you use your confused face when you said you had no beef with my other picks? Did you expect different ones?
