3 Rock Albums To Take on a Deserted Island #Blogember

3 rock albums to take on a deserted island
I am coming down from the high that was Bloggy Boot Camp this weekend. I got excited and wrote my post on Sunday afternoon, so if you missed it, I would adore you if you would check out my Bloggy Boot Camp experience here.

Today's Blogember (blog every day in November) challenge is to write about three albums you would take on a deserted island. I am always thrilled when I get the chance to combine my running blog with my love of music. So let's say I am stranded on a deserted island (my dream come true) with only three albums to listen to (and run to) for the rest of my life. What would that look like? You know, at least until the batteries die on my MP3 player.

November 11: 3 albums you would take on a deserted island

My love for the Dead Weather is well documented (to hubby's dismay). The only question: Which album? I am going with Sea of Cowards. I love Alison Mosshart & Jack White (not necessarily in that order, but maybe).

I love White Stripes, not like a normal person likes a band, but like you love your best friend. It is a sentimental love, as well as an emotional one. I always say if it was socially acceptable for an almost-fourty-year-old woman to have a poster of a rock star on her bedroom wall, I'd have Jack White. While there are six studio albums to choose from, but I think if I only get one, I am gong with their first major label album, White Blood Cells, although it is really really difficult to choose.

The third album was the hardest to select since I know it will be the last album I ever to get to choose (in this fantasy deserted island scenario). While I have many choices for this third album, I landed on the Cold War Kids, Mine is Yours. This was one of those albums that took me a couple of spins to get it to click, but once it did, I was hooked forever.

After some thought, I decided that three albums isn't enough for the rest of my life, so I reserve the right to carry some Raconteurs and Yeah Yeah Yeahs in my back pocket. My rules.

And I want a real record player on my deserted island. I'm wasn't sure where I would plug it in, but then I Googled it and found this. Oh yeah, I need internet on my deserted island too. And a hair dryer. OK, who am I kidding? I wouldn't survive a weekend on a deserted island. I need way more than three albums to survive in life.

What albums would you take with you on a deserted island?
