              OK: Once more, an impossibly too-short list, but here goes:
              Miles Davis: Kind of Blue
              John Coltrane: A Love Supreme
              Horace Silver: Songs for My Father
              Santana: Lotus
              Frank Zappa: Guitar
              Bad Brains: I Against I
              Grateful Dead: Live Dead
              Stooges: Raw Power
              Dick Dale: Tribal Thunder
              Bach: Brandenburg Concertos

              By the way, I have no idea what an "iPOD" is...(I still have a turntable!).

                While I was out on my 3-mile run today – oops, I mean 3-mile JOG – 25 minutes is OVER 8 minute pace, disqualifying me from runner’s status – I was thinking about the next step after this thread (and yes, I know how pathetic it is to be thinking about an internet board while AWAY from the computer, but the mind wanders) would be video, and how much more difficult a choice that would be. Movies really wouldn’t work, because, whereas we look forward to familiar musical melodies, our minds crave new visual stimulus. Dramas would be particularly pointless, because we seek to know HOW a conflict is resolved, and once we know that, it ceases to hold our attention. I rarely see a movie twice in the same year (of course, ‘The Return of the King’ is a notable exception; there was so much to see).

                But a TV series would be doable. Shows that feature comedy AND music are the obvious choices, and I imagine most people would include the full run of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ (were they available) for that very reason. Again dramas would not fare well, even my early favorite ‘The Twilight Zone’, simply because the joy is the revelation at the end. My all-time favorite series, ‘M.A.S.H.’ would have to accompany me, and ‘Cheers’, but then I’m not sure. Even ‘I Love Lucy’ would begin to wear after a while.

                But we can save this for another time, another thread – BTW - “Malcolm in the Middle” is on tonight, since the Sugar Bowl is anti-climactic. I already gave USC the trophy.

                  Yeah, a movie or video thread for the desert island (how about Mt Desert Island for the spot?) would be neat. About watching movies more than once, I disagree about dramas. If enough time has passed, you notice things you forgot (just hate the Alzheimers) or missed on the 1st n viewings. My wife and I stay home on New Years eve (amateur hour) and fix something good, with a bottle of good wine, and then watch a couple old movies. This year it was African Queen (3rd time each) and Greed, which neither of us had seen. How weird to watch a silent movie at home. I see that Metropolis is out in DVD, so maybe that next year.

                      What happened to iPOD the original? I was looking for more posts, and it seems to be missing.

                          Gotta delurk for a shot at this one.

                          Miles Davis -- Kind of Blue
                          John Coltrane -- Giant Steps
                          Ornette Coleman -- The Shape of Jazz to Come
                          The Beatles -- Rubber Soul (English)
                          The Who -- Who's Next
                          Bruce Springsteen -- Born to Run
                          The Clash -- The Clash
                          Elvis Costello -- This Year's Model
                          Nirvana -- Nevermind

                          Classical's not my strong suit, so I'll stick to something basic -- Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G Minor

                          Ten is so few . . . These are all necessarily so basic. Now how about a more obscure top ten?

                              ps- so many albums would make top 10, but have too many weak cuts on them(even 'greatest hits' albums - ever notice how many of your favorites aren't on them?). And Beethoven's 9th would be on mine, but EVERY (30+?) recording I've heard has at least one or two fair-to-poorly done movements! I miss the old drug days, when everything sounded just right.....
