Did You Have To Ask?

If stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one music album with you, which would it be? What is it about this music that never gets old for you?

Let me just say that if the situation ever presents itself, I would so totally be the person you would want to be stranded on and island with.  I would totally ROCK IT!  You would absolutely not have to worry about anything.  Shelter...stable, rainproof, sturdy...done, done and done.  Beds?  Complete with mattresses...done.  Blankets?  Give me a day and you will be warm!  I'm a resourceful kinda gal.  I sew, knit, cook and make an awesome fort out of sheets!  We would have nothing to worry about.

Your ears would not have to worry either.  Because they would get the privilege to listen to the lovely Mr. Darren Hayes.  First front man to Savage Garden, then amazing solo artist.  So here is the hitch...I can only pick one?  What?  Seriously?  I don't know if I can do it.  So here is my way to get around it...I make my very own mix cd with all my favorite songs!  HAHA!  Take that!  And before you say "that's not fair" ...yes it is!  I already have one made sitting in Rojo Grande right now.

Hubs and I started listening way back when before he was even the Hubs and was just The Boy.  We saw SG in SD and we saw Darren at the Roxy in Hollywood.  Had it not been Mr. Darren Hayes, I probably would have walked out of the Roxy.  Yes, the place has history but it also has crazy sticky really gross floors.  I was literally stuck in the same place the whole time.  But stuck or not, I still would have stood there.  I was in awe and in a sense of amazement.  Some nine months after that concert I had a baby.  But that is sooooo another story for another time!

Hubs just came in and derailed my thought train so that all my lil thoughts are spread out everywhere.  Then had the nerve to argue with me over what album I would take.  He said that I would pick Savage Garden's self titled album.  When I told him he was wrong he called me names.  He's just mad because I know he would take Van Halen. 

But this isn't about him.  It's about me.  So just one...I think Spin.  I love every song on the album.  I have felt and continue to feel every song.  That may have something to do with being with the hubs...well...forever.  So added on to Spin would be

So Beautiful, I Like The Way, Popular, Dublin Sky (love love love), Void (for those days), Love and Attraction, Sense of Humor, Who Would Have Thought, Casey, Step Into The Light, Sing to Me (love), Listen All You People, The Future Holds A Lions Heart, On The Verge, Neverland, Me Myself and I, Lucky Town and then every song from both Savage Garden Albums. 

So really instead of typing all of that out I should have just put "Check All".  And...AND...there is a new album coming out this year!  So depending on when we get stuck on this island I may have another album to add to the list.  And possibly another baby...but that is another story for another time.     



  1. You can't drop a baby bomb and then refuse to elaborate. :)

  2. You know those moments where parents tell stories and their kids turn all sorts of colors of red. I don't have to worry about it cuz I just told the whole interwebs. lol. I'm laughing so much on the inside right now!
