The one area perhaps where Clark and I differ. :) We found it! If I was a guy, maybe...

Mine goes up tomorrow, but LOVE Darkside of the Moon. It got me through high school in a blissful daze.

Great list! I love Peter Gabriel, and those are my two favorite albums of his... especially "So", it's kind of my soundtrack to the eighties...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a cool comment... you've got a new follower in me! Hope to see you around the blog again sometime soon.

WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF POETRY: said...

Well done on an excellent choice, I loved the theme from Moulon Rouge, many of course I have not heard as likewise the same with mine,

Thanks for stopping by and the lovely comment. much appreciated.

Take care.

"Eye In the Sky" is one of my favorite songs. That's a wonderful list. My Dad likes Peter's songs.

Have a good day!:)

Will Burke said...

YAY! Let's hear it for the proud Canadians of Bare Naked Ladies! The Bass/Piano outro of the live "Brian Wilson" is some of the most intense music I've ever heard!

Tara said...

A lot of great picks! We have DSotM in common - and Blue October is one of my faves (that didn't make the cut).

Gregg said...

Johnny Cash I knew!

The Empress said...

Absolutely yes to Pink Floyd, Johny Cash.

Excellent choices. I'd think I'd have to carefully chose what I'd take, b/c being marooned and all, I'd have to keep it upbeat, you know??

Trudy said...

What an interesting list...I am so with him on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, isn't it fabulous?

I could probably hang out on his island for a while too!

Mark and Kiss said...

Good memories of you guys come to mind when I see this list...music is powerful.

Lisa said...

How could I have forgotten Blue October?!? Great list and thank you for stopping by and following. I'm doing the same!
