Take one minute... Pick one song.

Postby cbartal » Sun Oct 12, 2003 10:07 pm

OK

You're on a plane that's going down. You have ONE minute to pick ONE Costello song that will land on a desert island with you for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.

This is a stream of consciousness type of excercise. No analysis or intellectual activity is permitted. And no hedging, I want one song and one song only. If you take more than a minute and don't pick a song, you will end up with what your only accompanying survivor has picked... Hopelessly Devoted to You, which ain't all bad, by the way.

I know you can do it.

I'll start it out.

Pills and Soap.

Why? I don't know. It just came to me.

Your turn.

Will do LTZ,

So far we are doing pretty well on this island. We've got most of the staples. Pills, Soap, and a Shallow Grave.

Tokyo Storm Warning.

You gotta get your value for money, and boredom is a killer on a desert island (that is, if the crash landing hasn't killed you first). I was going to choose New Amsterdam but that's a little short. Okay, I'll shut up now.

Dear Plaything or Pet...don't you think that Tokyo Storm Warning would be better served in a torture chamber...???????
