Default Fire! What 5 Albums Do You Grab?

This subject has come up again between me and a buddy.

The backstory:
your room is on fire. you have only enough time to save 5 albums from your collection. what 5 albums do you grab?


it has to be a complete album and no various tunes compilations allowed greatest hits, or best of are OK.


me:
1. Hendrix, Band of Gypsy's
2. Albert King, Live Wire/Blues Power
3. Bob Dylan, Time Out of Mind
4. REO Speedwagon, Hi Infidelity
5. Dead Kennedy's, Frankenchrist

My external HD with 500 or so albums on it.

Tough one, but I'll give it a try:
Led Zeppelin - 4 (zoso)
Beatles - Abbey Road
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Queen - A Night at the Opera
Simon and Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence

obviously not old enough to follow directions/instruction either

seriously though it is supposed to make you choose albums based on their entire content, not off of a single one or two songs. or that was our theory upon inception.

you on dialup?

I find it harder to avoid porn/porn-links that it is to actually find/obtain porn.

Not much more difficult to obtain music either for that matter if one were so inclined.

the entire album model, and the overwhelming majority of albums that have at least one, if not a majority of tracks as clunkers is what led to the rampant sharing, and eventual model of iTunes allowing follks to buy singles via mp3s.

In terms of contributing in the spirit of the thread however, I'll confess that lately, I've been listening to the Blues Brother's Original Motion Picture soundtrack on repeat, and Urethra's song is seemingly the only song I regularly skip.

However, even though it dates from the vinyl era (as do I) I also do not own any vinyl albums.

this is an awesome question. bravo!

i agree with flatfender. i would have to grab all my porn. my collection dates back to 1982 and those are classic. so besides grabbing all my porn, my real doll, my swedish penis pump with the "soft lip feel" attachment and my clear double dong with the flashing lights inside,


i would grab...


1. Black Sabbath: Master of Reality
2. Deep Purple: Made in Japan
3. Frank Zappa: Over Night Sensation
4. The Who: Live at Leeds
5. Motorhead: Ironfist

ovrlnd: btw, let me know when your house does catch fire and ill bring my REO over and let it burn with the rest of your cd's!

no argument there.

this has been ongoing for a number of years.....well since records were in the stores.

although most of today's crap would be eliminated, there is a plethora of great complete albums. it can be a CD if you don't have any vinyl doughnuts or solar eclipse watching discs.

Current faves, no particular order:
Bowling for Soup, A Hangover You Don't Desrve
The Cure, Staring At The Sea
Meat Loaf, Bat Out Of Hell
The Eagles, Hell Freezes Over
Gin Blossoms, Outside Looking In

Those are the first five that come to mind, that I listen to over and over, start to finish, some after many years... obviously I'm not on vinyl! Narrowing it down to five all-time best would take quite a lot of effort. I just put my entire CD collection on an iPod and I have just under 4,500 songs, everything from Limp Bizkit to Celtic harp music to John Prine. It depends on what mood I'm in!

no album is worth saving IMO. I'll take my pc and out the door though. 1.3Tb worth of mp3's family pictures, financial documents, etc...

I never worry about my music though as I've stashed a copy of my 90gb on my mom's pc and my brothers pc's since I've rebuilt them. That's every album I own ripped.
