Favorite song(s)?

If you were stranded on a desert island with only 10 songs to listen to over and over again for the rest of your life, what would they be?

**This is assuming the desert island had an mp3 player, CD player, etc. as well as speakers and a lifetime supply of electricity and that you could choose the 10 songs

I did a shuffle on my mp3 player to get these 10 songs:
1.Linda, Linda (the Blue Hearts)
2.天使之戀 (黃鶯鶯)
3.愛你像愛我自己 (王傑)

hard to decide… if i could pick an album, it would be the opera Carmen. If I had to pick 10 songs, who knows…

My top 10 played songs in iTunes are:

Sombody - Faith Yang (a depeche mode cover)
Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien - Edith Piaf
Make Me Whole - Amel Larrieux
True Colors - Cyndi Lauper
Also Sprach Zarathustra - Deodato
Piano Concerto No.2 (first movement) - Liszt - Richter
L’Amour au Premiere Regard - Trois Couleurs: Rouge Soundtrack
Danse Macabre - Saint-Saens (Paul Paray conductor)
Closer - Dido
Battle Without Honor or Humanity - Kill Bill vol.1 soundtrack

I’d probably substitute some of those for…

Isobel - Bjork
Amsterdam - Jacques Brel
Ne Me Quitte Pas - Jacques Brel
some nina simone…
who knows what else. it’d be a hard decision.

(Deodato is cool)

I would quickly throw away said mp3 player. Just having ten songs would drive me crazy. I’ll just listen to the surf and the birds.

you said it. the wind, the birds, the sea. that’s all we need.
