Desert Island Discs

Post by bristleposh »

I’ve decided that if I were on this programme I’d find it impossible to come up with a sensible list. In the bath this morning I was listening to a track by My Chemical Romance that came from their wonderful album The Black Parade. I just led their thinking that has got to be the best album of the noughties. Then I thought perhaps, what about Bleed American by Jimmy Eat World, then the Blink 182 Eponymous album or American Idiot by Green Day, The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me by Brand New or Like a Virgin Losing a Child by Manchester Orchestra or Evanescence’s Fallen. So that is seven stand out albums just from the noughties. I’d find it difficult to narrow that down to eight tracks without going into other decades. Ironic really that some out of touch people think the nineties was the best decade.
If anybody knows of better albums from the noughties that those seven I’d love to listen to them.

I don't think any of those were from the noughties

I don’t like live albums at all, although the Nirvana live acoustic album was a bit special, I like tracks from all the albums you mention Hysteria one of my favourites from the eighties and Highway a favourite from the seventies, 2112 is my favourite Rush album, I preferred Escape from Journey but hey-ho no they don’t count as noughties.

Hello, I just thought I’d pop in and throw my DID choices into the mix. By the way, unless I’m wrong (which is a possibility), the format is:
1) Pick 8 tracks (that’s singles not albums).
2) Puck one of those 8 as the one you would save (if you could only save 1).
3) A luxury item (lots of limitations in what you can have).
4) A book - you cannot have a series. Strangely they gave you the Bible and complete works of Shakey (the writer not the singer).

So, here are my entries and I must say lots of great entries already mentioned.

8 Tracks
1. Kings of the wild frontier - Adam und Ants
2. 15 Years - The Levellers
3. The Drugs don’t work - The Verve
4. Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen
5. Country Roads - John Denver
6. Imagine - John Lennon
7. Panic - The Smiths
8. Sheriff Fatman - Carter USM (be rude not to).

Save: Sheriff Fatman (again, be rude not to!).

Luxury: Darts and board

Book: Nathaniel’s Nutmeg

Hope to see some other entries!

Cheers
Sheriff F

Thank you for your contribution, my op was saying how difficult I would find it, at least in your list you have 1, 4, 5, and 6 that I could stomach listening to. As for the other stuff, I couldn't do without would probably be 21st Century Schizoid Man, my preference for a luxury would be for a pornstar ladyboy. Book, Lord of the Rings, I've read it but didn't understand it, hopefully, a second read without distractions, apart from my ladyboy I might be able to get more understanding.

It looks like nobody so far can come up with a solid list of tracks from the noughties brizzle.
If I were you I'd go for the superior quality of the 70s and 80s

I have hundreds of tracks from the seventies and eighties, I just tend to have liked a lot of stuff from the noughties, mostly American or Canadian. I liked a lot from the 2010s, and so far the 2020s have been dominated by long distance collaborations due to Covid. One I picked up on recently from this year is a collaboration between MOD SUN and April Lavign called Flames, stunning

Apologies, I was (and am) happy in the haze of the drunken hour, but can now see your post was more specific than my response. Sorry!

Thank you for not pointing that out and also for your polite response. Too often, gob-shites online are quick to highlight these things!



As a 70s child I am unable to offer advice about music post 95.
Anyway, everyone should be happy tonight

Thank you for sharing your other DID stuff. I think your ladyboy request would be acceptable. Your book choice is way above my concentration span (usually 8 secs (goldfish is 7)).
Cheers, SF
