OK so this is probably sort of ridiculous but can be fun.
If you were marooned on an island with just a single album (and yes something to play it on lol) which album would it be. They have the edit button here so you can also change your mind.

For me, I would say:

The Beatles (The White Album) Album

That would sustain me more than anything else I can think of right now for years and years.

Have Fun.

I can't imagine any one album retaining my interest enough not to commit suicide by sunburn.

LOL I guess he is saying that if there was no other choice. I would probably pick some elevator music release without any vocals. I do not think I would want to hear any words to influence me in my solitude.

I guess it would have to be Soft Cell's "Non Stop Erotic Cabaret" but I want the remastered version with the extra tracks and not the original CD release that I have. It's probably been my favorite CD for 20 years, so why not??

Forever is a long time so I can not try and select something that I may like today, For this you need to pick somethgin that you may like forever or at least in the future as well. I like what centurion was suggesting and may do the same thing but instead of elevator music i would pick some super relaxing ambient album that has as much material as possible. sorry if that is not really what you are asking

Easy: Alphaville - Salvation. This album is such a mix of great songs and styles, and you can't get tired of it. Or...maybe during a "forever"-period. :)

Alphaville? That rings a bell. Wasn't that the band that did the song "Forever Young" or am I thinking of Rod Stewart?
