LuckyMama at A Long Weigh Away Congrats! So she's is actually very lucky after all :) If you haven't read her blog, please do stop by. She's also lost a lot of extra pounds this year, so double-congrats to her!!
In answer to the question "If you were to be a cast away all alone on a deserted island which record would you choose to have with you?"
LuckyMama answered: I'm a Queen freak - all of it, but I'd probably take Innuendo.
BUT, there's a new artist I found - small at the moment - named George Ezra. Young fellow too, but I'm loving his voice!
If you don't know about George Ezra he's English and recently released his first album called Wanted on Voyage. He has a distinct voice and writes catchy folk melodies. It should be interesting to see how his career evolves.
My choice is... well, it took a while to decide. Here was my thinking on narrowing down the list:
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oliver Jones or Oscar Peterson?
Mozart or Beethoven?
Joni Mitchell or Carole King?
John Coltrane or Miles Davis?
Alanis Morrisette or Tori Amos?
Leonard Cohen or Bob Dylan?
Radiohead or U2?
Bessie Smith or Robert Johnson?
PJ Harvey or Bjork?
Missy Elliott or Beastie Boys? ... yeah it goes on and on...
In the end, I had to chose what over time has stayed with me the most on a personal level:
Kate Bush's album Hounds of Love. In particular, I've listened to the song Running Up that Hill so many times since discovering her catalogue of music and it speaks to me on so many levels. Mostly relationship-wise, but also when facing any challenge and of course weight-wise. The version I've linked to is the remixed version she performed at the 2012 Olympics in London.
