    Well lets say you brought a walkmen or have an iPod with a limited amount of songs/albums :P

    EDIT:

    Or think of it as you can only listen to 12 albums for the rest of your life.

    Here's what I'd bring ATM.

    Artist-Album

    1) Verve Pipe-Villains
    2-4) Doors- Live in NY (Discs 1,3) LA Woman, Soft Parade (3 albums)
    5) Tool- Enima
    6 ) Audioslave-Audioslave
    7) Alice In Chains- Dirt
    8,9) Zeppelin- Mothership 1,2
    10) Jimi Henrix Experience- Experience Hendrix

    12) Pearl Jam- Live On Two Legs

    Still none because both would run out of power soon with no extra batteries or any way to plug in the iPod :lol: And careful, kids these days may not know what a walkman is :P Dating yourself there "old man" :lol::lol:



    Hmm only 12 album for the rest of your life could be a tough one to come up with.

    :lol: kids these days.

    Funny how I thought a walkman was cool back in the day. :lol: The only time I really listen to CD's now is in my car driving. Otherwise I listen to music on my iPod or computer.

    EDIT: I had a discman too :lol:

    True. You'd have quiet nights though and I'm a bit of a night owl.

    It would charge during the day, so you could use it at night also.

    I'm a night owl too- it's 5am here and I've been up all night listening to music. The thinly veiled is in my bedroom so having to take this one on a walk through the woods. If I didn't have an iPod, I'd seldom go for walks.

    That was easier than I thought. At least until I figure out what I've forgotten, and try to decide what to replace with what. :mrgreen:

    I agree! :thumbup: The difficult part was having to exclude Call Your Girlfriend in favor of Cry When You Get Older. And I much prefer the Part 2 version of Hang With Me. Tough call, but otherwise I just would have gone with the actual Body Talk album.

    Ah, I wondered why you didn't go for the LP! I personally prefer Pt 2 cos I love Criminal Intent so much. I worked at a music store during 2010 and converted a lot of people to Robyn by having that on the playlist every single day!

    "Somebody alert the authorities, I got criminal intent"! Good stuff. U Should Know Better was also pretty tough. Just makes me wonder if any Snoop fans who aren't into pop/dance would dig it. I hadn't heard anything from her since her debut, But when I heard Dancing My Own, I caught up as quickly as I could.

    Are you referring to her UK release debut, 2005's Robyn? I loved that at the time (well, I still do). Bum Like U and Be Mine! were the jams.
    My friends and I used to always put Konichiwa B*s on a late night drive and sing every word, ha.
    I saw her recently at Brixton and she was awesome. I saw her at Glastonbury too, but it was marred by technical difficulties. And yeah, Snoop's feature renewed my respect for him- fine verses. Definitely his best work since his 90s gangsta material.

    Don't remember how I originally found her, but I had Robyn Is Here (1997) in my collection. Fast forward to 2010. Heard Dancing On My Own while shopping for music, and couldn't believe she was still around. That's when I hunted down Robyn from 2005. The first time I listened to Konichiwa B's, I was loving it. I doubt I'll ever get to see her live, but I can hope. The true test for U Should would be to find a die hard Snoop fan who doesn't listen to any other genres. I like to think that even if they didn't particularly like it as a collaboration, they still might find some respect for her skills, as well as his.

    The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society
    Blood On The Tracks, Bob Dylan
