Saturday night. Whiskey Macs. No, the f*cking iPod doesn’t negate this.
I painfully leave out Leon Payne. I clingingly drop, with more disappointment than any other left-off artists … I abandon Patsy Cline. Then Sarah Vaughan gets knocked off (and I will burn in hell). Woody Guthrie … more sentimental than anything, but he’s gone. And Squeeze gets squeezed. How could I leave off Pet Sounds? The Beatles? Hank Williams … let’s not get started.
It’s my list. And it’s today’s list, not yesterday’s or tomorrow’s.
Like life, these things change. IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, Desert island disks:
- smitten – the martinis
- blood & chocolate – elvis costello
- surfer rosa – the pixies
- mutations – beck
- here be monsters – ed harcourt
- ram – paul mccartney
- priest = aura – the church
- california – mr. bungle
- the convincer – nick lowe
- has been – william shatner
