Bee's Desert Island Discs
1. bob dylan 'you're a big girl now' (blood on the tracks) for that all -grown-up on your own feeling: "you are on dry land"
2. neil young 'silver and gold' (silver and gold) for missing adam and izzy: "our kind of love never seems to grow old"
3. the ramones 'i wanna be sedated' (road to ruin) for rockin' out: "nothin' to do, nowhere to go"
4. tom waits 'gun street girl' (rain dogs) for being tough and scaring away the others: "blew a hole in the hood of a yellow corvette"
5. joni mitchell 'river' (blue) for feeling blue: "it don't snow here, it stays pretty green"
6. miles davis 'shhh/peaceful' (in a silent way) for being lost...
7. nick cave and the bad seeds 'breathless' (abattoir blues/the lyre of orpheus) for being found...
8. the faces 'ooh la la' (ooh la la) for everything: "i wish that i knew what i know now, when i was younger"
i would save nick cave, and thus be optomistic in a pessimistic way ;-)
book: harper lee 'to kill a mockingbird'
luxury item: a moleskine notebook and pilot pen (can that count as 1 item please?)
