Desert Island Top5 Intro

November 25, 2008 - By

I don’t know why it’s so interesting to do, but I like to consider my top5’s often in the context of the desert island. I love that the “desert island” is the cliché for the quintessential stuff that you would want with you if you were stranded in a pop-cultureless bubble.

One of the most perplexing of these top5 lists is the album. At any given time I have a few albums that are really high rotation, or even favourites of the year; but these don’t have the makings of really good Top5’s, they’re more flash-in-the-pan obsessions for the moment.

The last time I narrowed down my top5 was around 2003, I’m not so sure it will be the same today. I plan to retool it in January. In the coming weeks I am going to go into some detail about these albums more.

Here are my current top5 desert island albums… what are yours?

#1 Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon,

#2 The Beatles – Abbey Road,

#3 Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells,

#4 Johnny Cash – Live at Folsom Prison,

#5 Moody Blues – Days of Future Passed

Next week: The Moody Blues
