1000 Minutes: Dave #1

If I were to envision myself as Hurley from Lost, having recently suffered a catastrophic event and finding myself on a deserted island with an mp3 player, what music would I listen to? Similar to Hurley’s situation in that I can’t get any new music but different because my batteries will never run out, what music will comprise this final playlist? I have exactly 1000 minutes of music for all of eternity, or until death. This vision takes the liberty to assume there is a fair amount of leisure time to sit on my ass not worrying about staying alive.

The list is not going to be in any particular order. Here are two songs I would need.

1. Doves – The Cedar Room (mp3) from Lost Souls (7:38) [Time Remaining: 992:22]

Best song from one of my favorite bands. I can listen to this and never get sick of it. And that is the entire point of this exercise.

2. Bran Van 3000 – Drinking In L.A. (mp3) from Glee (3:56) [Time Remaining: 988:26]

If Andy is being far more hopeful of the location of his deserted island and I was perhaps stranded in a frigid wasteland it might be prudent to mention I wouldn’t last long enough to listen to each and every song let alone be concerned with music. If I were to end up in such a nightmare then I would like this song for the escapism. That and I fucking love it.

    Hey, you really need to think about carrying a small solar powered charger. You can easily carry them in your pocket now!
    This way, you won’t have to such negative scenarios!
    You can be on that island and listen to all the song on your ibod. (that isn’t a typo)
    think about it, a sunny island is the perfect place for a solar charger.
