Basic rules: 14 songs, all artists. Only music you could ever listen to for the rest of your life.

Mine:
1) I Saw Her Standing There
2) No Champagne Socialists - Arkells
3) Mushaboom - Feist
4) That's Amore - Dean Martin
5) American Pie - Don McLean
6) While My Guitar Gently Weeps
7) My Body Is A Cage - Arcade Fire
8) Jungleland - Brice Springsteen and The E-Street Band
9) In My Life
10) I Don't Know - Sheepdogs
11) 1 2 3 4 - Feist
12) A Rush of Blood To The Head - Coldplay
13) Where Have All The Good People Gone? - Sam Roberts
14) One For My Baby (And One More For the Road) - Frank Sinatra

And, the explantation (it makes everything so much clearer): #4,5,8 are family reminders that I couldn't forget. # 2,3,7,10,11, and 13 are all Canadian classics of the last 8 years, and well, the Beatles' songs were one of my personal favs of each of the songwriters. And, I couldn't think of a more fitting song then what I hear ever night at the end of my favourite music broadcast. Ol' Blue Eyes - take me away!

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

(Alphabetical)

Axis Bold as Love (Hendrix) [the guitar at the end makes it all worthwhile]

All Along the Watchtower (Hendrix version of Dylan song) [amazing rendition of what is otherwise, IMO, a so-so song]

Eleanor Rigby

Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones)

I Want To Hold Your Hand [on a desert island, this will keep me in a good mood for days]

Light My Fire (Doors) [love that riff and the build-up at the end]

Lucy In the Sky [need to dream]

Message In a Bottle (Police) [a candidate for best lyrics ever + most appropriate for a desert island]

Monkberry Moon Delight (McCartney) [that riff, that scat singing at the end...]

Oliver's Army (Elvis Costello)

Penny Lane [love each and every one of those images, not to mention the soaring melody]

Saturday Night (Elton John) [gotta dance]

Summer of '69 (Brian Adams) [memory lane - I was just a kid, but summer of '69 - July: Moon Landing, August: Woodstock,    September: Abbey Road ...]

Suzanne (Leonard Cohen) [on a desert island got to be deep in thought sometimes]

 

Honorable mention: Since I've Been Loving You (Led Zeppelin) [some of Page's best guitar],   Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Simon and Garfunkel),   When the Music's Over (Doors) [fabulous ending],    We Used To Know (Jethro Tull),   Hesitation Blues (Hot Tuna) [great acoustic guitar and bass],   California Dreamin' (Mamas and Papas),     Wicked Game (Chris Isaak), .....

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
