    Assume you are marooned on a desert island. A genie appears with good news and bad news. The bad news is that you will not be rescued and you will spend the rest of your living days on the island.

    The good news is that the genie has an iPod to give you and a few hours of download ability. Your mission is to select the ten albums that you wish to spend the rest of your life with - but there are a few rules:

    1. You are only allowed one album per band and/or artist.

    2. "Best of" and compilation albums are not allowed.

    3. No more than three of the albums can be a double disk or more.

    What do you choose and why?

    This leaves out genres like dance.

    I would download sets of certain DJ's which are not released on albums or as albums.

    However a must on my list would be

    - Beautiful Girls - Morning Sun (maybe learn yourself, hard to split the two)
    - Pete Murray - See the Sun
    - Jack Johnson (not sure which album here maybe on and on)
    - The Smiths - Meat is Murder
    - Radio Birdman (I have to break your rule here they only really had EP's and Radio birdman Essential would come with me, stuff your genie and his rules)


    Now some sets I would want to have with me
    Steve Angello - radio one essential mix live at amnesia Ibiza august 2006
    Plump Dj's 2003 Field Day
    Freq Nasty 03 essential mix
    They would probably fit on one CD; so I am claiming them as 1

    Now I am not going to finish my list but I post a question

    Is it worth downloading all those songs if you wont have access to recharge the iPOD the first time it runs out of batteries??

    Yes. The genie was the Tim Tam genie so the batteries will be never ending.

    Not really my sort of music though Nutz. i dont mind the old school hard stuff like Pantera but my heavy days are over.

    Have you guys heard of Xavier Rudd? He is bloody fantastic, basically a one man band, he sings the song off the Mycareer add, if you get the chance to see him do so.

    Other notes from Pyramid,

    Evermore, brilliant, they were probably the pick for mine.
    Silverchair sucked arse, they were dissapointing.
    Mylo, awesome, just awesome.
    Freestylers, good but not as good as I expected.
    Living End, better than I expected.
    Ugly Duckling, try hard Beastie Boys, they were so bad it wasnt funny.

    Doug, Mylo and feestylers were awesome at Field Day, highlight for me though were Plump Dj's, loose canons and Martin Solverg.

    As for Xavier Rudd, have seen him before and know of him, very good and every thing he does, you can see the passion he is putting into his music and how much he feels every beat and every phrase.

    Did you see the beautiful girls at Pyramids? How were they?
