“If stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one music album with you, which would it be? What is it about this music that never gets old for you?”

OK, we must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel.  Yesterday’s topic was so off the wall, I didn’t even bother posting in response to it (aside from which, I had appointments up the wazoo).  But this one just leaves me shaking my head:

One music album.  On a desert island.  What is it about desert island that I’m missing?  Wait…it’s coming to me…could it be…electricity?!

Or am I just being too prosaic?!  I mean, what good is an album without something to play it on?!  Solar batteries, maybe?  It’s the only way this topic works.

And why do you need an album, anyway?  Are you so brain-dead that you can’t even make your own music?  ‘Cause that’s what I’d do.  If I were stranded on a desert island, I’d want enough water to keep my throat from getting dried out so I could sing to my heart’s content.  And I’d need food to keep up my strength, of course — singing is a workout, if you do it right.

All this assumes I would even put myself in a position to be on a desert island in the first place.  Not me, sister.  Day-to-day living is enough of an adventure, thankyouverymuch.  I don’t need Assistance.

Come on, WordPress — get real!
