3 CDs and a Desert Island

At lunch today Shiloh asked us if we were stuck on a desert island for the rest of our lives, what 3 CDs would we want to have with us? After my initial shock of comtemplating a lifetime trapped in my own personal hell (hot + sand + no escape), I decided my three would be:
  1. Backstreet Boys: Chapter One
  2. Sarah McLachlan: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
  3. Madonna: Immaculate Collection

And as with all games, I like to change the rules, so my runner-up would be:

4. Erasure: Cowboy

What I REALLY want to know is what each of you would choose!!!! Sooooo.....please leave a comment and tell me! This doesn't have to be your top 3 of all time--it can just be those three that are most important to you today. Or as my mom said tonight when I asked her the same question, the 3 CDs that feel like home (yes she really did say that).

runner up: Moulin Rouge Soundtrack. (because I can, can can....)

This is EASY!
It would be:
1. Mariah Carey: Christmas ( I can hear the whistle blowing on the HOT TAMALE train now!)
2. Donny Osmond: This Is the Momment- Broadway tracks
3. AC/DC- Back in Black

These truly are my favorites in that order. Odd collection I know, but hello...they are my choices so buzz off :)

Dang it I thought of another one! Collective Soul's Dosage.

this is cool to read everybody's choices! not sure on which albums I'd choose, but I'd need some Bob Marley, Beatles, and...I'll have to think on the last one.

Sometimes you hear an artist and you feel like somehow, they have reached in and touched your soul:
1. Counting Crows-August and Everythig After
2. Sarah-Mirrorball
3. U2- How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb

Runner up:
4.Bob Marley-Legend (and I hate that this is a "runner-up" because every time I listen to any track on that cd, I feel like I am home).

Hard choice!

1. Donna Summer-On the radio (reminds me of cleaning the house with my mom when i was little)

2. New Kids on the Block-Hangin'Tough (Don't laugh If Shannon can have BSB, I can hold on to the great memories from 1990!)

3. And Mika, I'm loving that CD right now!
