I would just take the single "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys, because how could anyone ever get tired of that song?

You forgot Buffet's box set.
Hey, you ARE on an island

How can you be on an island and not have a little Jimmy Buffet ?

Because I don't like Jimmy Buffet.

Hubris, I love you - but don't come near my island with that song. I'll drown your ass.

I would've picked Murder Ballads instead, but perhaps that's because I'm jonesing on "The Curse of Millhaven" right now.

The audio book "101 Survival Tips for Living on a Desert Island."

But seriously

1. Symphony X - The Divine Wings of Tragedy
2. Shadows Fall - The War Within
3. Orphaned Land - Mabool
4. Portishead - Dummy
5. Living Colour - Collideoscope

"Elvira"? Dude, you're evil. Do that on my island and I'll make sure "Horse With No Name" is perpetually looped on yours.

#1 & #2 are on my list, and in addition:

Infected Mushroom - The Gathering
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Supertramp - Crime Of The Century

Good topic!

Brian Eno - 'Desert Island Selections'
Robert Fripp - Exposure
Jethro Tull - "Bursting Out - Live"
Ramones - Loud/Fast

A bootleg copy of '500 Songs - a collection by Michele Catalano.' Mostly because the copyright violations alone would ensure that minions from the MPAA woudl find me down ... and her taste in music is not teh sux0r

1 "A Wizard,A True Star" Todd Rundgren
2 "Woodface" Crowded House
3 Melissa auf der Maur
4 "best of" Roxy Music
5 "Remote Control" the Tubes

it probably depends on the mood I'm in the day I go for my three hour tour, thus I might hate myself for these five but here goes...

1. tool- Ænima
2. queens of the stone age- songs for the deaf
3. failure- fantastic planet
4. pixies- surfer rosa
5. the shins- oh inverted world

Love/Hate - Why Do You Think They Call It Dope
Steve Vai - On Passion and Warfare
Roger Waters - The Pros and Cons of Hitchiking
Van Halen III
Korn - Life is Peachy

I'll elimnate compilations, because that would be too easy:

1) "London Calling", The Clash
2) "Rocket To Russia", The Ramones
3) "Armed Forces", Elvis COstello
4) "Murmer", REM
5) "Birth of The Cool", Miles Davis

Dark Side of the Moon doesn't make the cut anymore. Damn, I must be old. (Although I did see Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, so there is hope for a fossil like me!)

1) Downward Spiral, Nine Inch Nails
2) Voodoo U, Lords of Acid
3) Becoming X, Sneaker Pimps
4) Rooty, Basement Jaxx
5) Transform, Powerman 5000

Radiohead OK Computer
Velvet Underground...best of
Bob Marley Legend
Pixies Surfer Rosa
The Cramps Bad Music for Bad People
