The Deserted Island Answers And…

Last week I had asked the questions below: Got a lot of great answers and none of them wrong of course. After all if is personal choice. Just thought-provoking. Love to see more … what are yours.

Here’s my answers . THEN  I have a follow-up question (too much time sipping beer at the bar with my chums).

1) What are the 5 musical artists (complete works) you would want while stranded on a deserted island? 

The Beatles_

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (can I cheat and get all of their stuff together and apart) yes my question so my answer 🙂

Copeland  – this is a group lead by a guy named Aaron Marsh. They are pretty recent, but even for an old-timer like me… great stuff

Todd Rundgren (big fan – has had music in my life since high school and he has some profound lyrics)

Jason Mraz ( love him thanks to my daughter for that)

2) What are the 5 books you would want to while stranded on a deserted island?

The NIV Holy Bible

The Lathe of Heaven – Urlsa LeGuin

The Stand- Stephen King

The Hunger Games Trilogy ( probably just a “now’ thing)

Cutting for Stone- Abraham Verghese (currently trending to be one of my fave)

This is a question that can change alot (except for the first one) depending on my mood


3) What are the 5 movies you would want to have to watch while stranded on a deserted island? (Yes you would have a way to watch them too)

The Philadelphia Story (Stewart/Grant/Hepburn)

Dial M for Murder (or any Hitchcock movie really)

Les Misarables 25th Anniversary Show ( love musicals so instead of picking a real one- this will do just fine)

Shawshank Redemption– the story is timeless

Robin Hood (the one with Errol Flynn)

I could have cheated again and said something like The Star Wars Trilogy (you know which one) OR the LOTR Trilogy… could have- but thought that was extreme. 🙂


So my friend asked me:

a) What is your TV show theme song if your life was a TV show drama?

b) What is your TV show  theme song if your life was a TV show comedy?

c) What is your move theme song if  your life was an action movie?  –

We had some funny answers- what’s yours?
