Blogember – Day 11


November 11: 3 albums you would take in a deserted island

This one is really difficult. I love music, and there are so many albums and artists that have changed my life, and without whom I would be all kinds of sad. How could I possibly choose just three albums?! I mean, can they be mix tapes?!


Ok – so really, what this comes down to is choosing three artists, and then choosing one album each. Right? Simple, yeah? Still, not really.

After much hemming and hawing, I decided I was just going to go ahead and break the rules. =X

I made this list a few years ago, the 15 albums that changed my life, and it’s still really accurate.

1. Hanson – Middle of Nowhere

2. Rancid – …And Out Come the Wolves

3. No Doubt- Tragic Kingdom

4. Nirvana- Nevermind

5. The Eagles- Greatest Hits

6. Tommy Makem & Liam Clancy – The Makem & Clancy Collection

7. Simon & Garfunkel – The Concert in Central Park

8. Joan Baez- Classics Vol. 8

9. Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde

10. The Rolling Stones- Hot Rocks

11. Brandi Carlile-Acoustic

12. Led Zeppelin- Led Zeppelin III

13. Metallica- The Black Album

14. Ani DiFranco- Little Plastic Castle

15.  Fleetwood Mac- Rumors


Each one of these albums made a huge impact on my life at some point – some have made that impact multiple ways at different times. I guess, if I had to bring just three – I’d probably throw them all into a bag and then grab three and hope for the best.
