Desert Island Discs 

by Dennis Machart

A deserted island and five CDs of my choice, and if college tuition gets any higher, I may end up having to resort to this.

Bruce Springsteen: Darkness on the Edge of Town Springsteen's first commentaries on social/economic inequality prove why he is the greatest songwriter who ever lived.

Brian May: Back to the Light Queen is probably the most important band the world has ever known, and no offense Freddie Mercury, but the main reason for this was guitarist Brian May, the most gifted musician I have ever heard.

The Go-Gos: God Bless the Go-Gos The latest effort by these Hollywood hotties proves that some things do get better with time.

Bon Jovi: New Jersey Sure, these guys are kind of a joke, but listening to them is like riding a moped, it's cool as long as your friends don't find out.

Roy Orbison: The Very Best of Roy Orbison Simply put, the man had the most amazing and haunting voice. Remember the days when having a great singing voice actually mattered? I don't know when this all changed, but I'm sure it must be Mick Jagger's fault.
