Let’s have a little fun with this one, eh?
The game is simple, you’re stuck on a deserted island and you may never get off, which five albums would you want to have with you?
Much like The Dark Knight Rises, you may have to suspend your disbelief to completely enjoy this week’s post, so let’s just say that this desert island happens to have an electrical outlet where you can plug in your pre-loaded iPod or vinyl record player or whatever (no internet, though, so don’t think you can try to take Spotify with you.
Here’s my five albums:
Relient K – MMHMM: This album has meant more to me over the years than any others, I don’t think that will change just because I’m stuck on an island.
Bleach – Again, For The First Time: I don’t want to be depressed about my situation, so I’m going to take some good feel music from this heart on their sleeve band.
Anberlin – Cities: I want to remember that there was amazing art back home, even if all I see here is sand, water and palm trees.
House of Heroes – The End Is Not The End: I’m going to have to hope that my wife and kid are on the island with me and take this album that means a lot to us as a family.
Emery – The Question: Where were you when…I needed someone to teach me how to make a boat out of palm trees?
