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.

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

I share the sentiment about the band's repertoire. For me not of all time...but I do very much like the tune.

  this one's pretty good too..

"..Here's a scene
You're in the back seat laying down
The windows wrap around
To sound of the travel and the engine
All you hear is time stand still in travel
And feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn't end
But slowly drifts into sleep
The stars are the greatest thing you've ever seen
And they're there for you
For you alone you are the everything..."

Just heard an interesting interview with Michael Stipe on Studio 360. Living with his soulmate (a Frenchman) and pursuing sculpture as a preferred creative medium. Always found him aloof and twee to the point of annoyance, but he claims it's all shyness. Noteworthy fellow, and the body of work stands on its own merit.

  

So Stipe has his very own Frenchman. How droll.  I wonder if he's a mime?  Love this song, btw.
