Doesn't it seem like time for that scenario to go away?  First of all, what would one use for electricity on this uncharted desert island unless Gilligan and the Professor are going to rig up some sort of solar/coconut-powered generator?  Wouldn't acquiring food, water, and shelter be much more important than wondering what one musical work one would be condemned to listening to for the rest of their life?  Anyhow, why haven't you mentioned Air Supply's music on that short list?

Agreed REM>Clash too much catelogue for Clash to compete.

So. Good. 

My favorite part is the layered vocals in the chorus.  Absolutely lovely.

Pity they stopped.

 

It is, way back in 1991 was when that was I believe.  More of a pity they kept playing all those years after anyway.

This has been a really groovy hour for me, filled with folk-y, baroque-y, and psychedelic tunes.  I was going to post after Sarah McLachlan, but then Bill put on "My Kingdom" and kept on going.  After this tune he's dropped Alison Krauss "Paper Airplane," and before I'm done "Refugee" by Oi Va Voi. 

Set so far = 9, even though I've rated down to a 6 ("Cutting Out" probably 7.5 in this set) and 7 ("Fall On Me" not my super-fave R.E.M.). 

9:10 pm - R.E.M. - Fall On Me
9:08 pm - Elliott Smith - Between The Bars
9:05 pm - Sam Phillips - Edge of the World
9:02 pm - Lloyd Cole - Cutting Out

8:58 pm - Gorillaz - On Melancholy Hill
8:54 pm - Echo & The Bunnymen - My Kingdom
8:50 pm - Sarah McLachlan - World on Fire
8:45 pm - Ray LaMontagne - Beg Steal or Borrow

8:39 pm - Loreena Mckennitt - The Dark Night Of The Soul
8:30 pm - The Moody Blues - Tuesday Afternoon

You know how to bring a smile to this listeners face. Still enjoyable as it was when new. Great rhythms and melody. Thank you!
