If I could only own 5 CDs (and not just use Ipod etc) I would cry. But, If I HAD to, I'd probably pick, Duran Duran's first album, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode's 101, Alecia Key's Songs in A Minor, Morrissey's Bona Drag and Clannad's The Legend.
Good Question! As the tears fell from my face I'd choose Florence and the Machine, Norah Jones, Mumford and Sons, Kings of Leon, and The Wides (my brother's band, they're going to be famous one day soon).
Streets of London by Ralph McTell, Mumford & Sons - White Blank Page, Mumford & Sons again with The Cave, Wish you were here by Pink Floyd and last but not least, David Bowie - Life On Mars? They could play around and around and life would be paradise!!!
