I think so....unless I've suddenly gone blind, which is always possible.

I'm sure I thought way too hard on this one....but marooned on an island with a hot Italian car makes me want something soothing as far as music and also something that is inspirational as far as purpose, need, and a goal. White Bird furnishes that: she must fly or die. It also reminds you that every day you awake is beautiful. So the message is unless you want to die on that island with that hot Italian car you better figure out how to survive, set a plan in motion, and find a way off the island. I couldn't think of a piece of Italian music off the top of my head that fits those parameters. The other option was a French suicide aria from Lakme that was performed at Pat's memorial service because he loved the piece; and anyone can guess what the purpose of that would be marooned on an island, I've given up and am prepared to die.

Me! I listen to all that 80's crap!
The Cure, Depeche Mode, Clash, English Beat, Pretenders,
Cars, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, The Knack, Smith's etc.etc.

Hair Bands & Metal when I'm in the garage working/playing with the cars.

Deep Forest when I'm drinking bourbon relaxing in my chair!

Mario Lanza, Be MY Love
So it would either have to be Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited," Jefferson Airplane's "Surrealistic Pillow," or Joan Baez "Joan Baez." Of the three, I would most like to have Dylan.

1995 Nero & Tan 164Q as a second daily driver (at least in the summer) and 164LS repair project

07 Jeep Grand Cherokee (Wife's DD and to haul the boat).

I love Lakme as well, I like to listen to Bell Song when I'm driving in a very sportymanner.

Rush,,, A great rock band. I have a huge amount of respect for Geddy Lee... To play the h*ll out of the bass AND sing that strong..

Are you referring to a song with an Alfa basis ?

I always thought Red Barchetta was about a Ferrari but after "Googleing" it I see it's about some futuristics flying car dealy. My old time thought scheme was so much more vivid regarding a Spyder 3.0 V12 versus a big ole V8... Oh well, I will always regard it that way in my mind. The second or third concert I ever went to was Rush, after Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult. I traded Led Zeppelin tickets for the first encounter of a ... well that is for a PM or another thread...

My kind of music - If it ain't Willie, it ain't sh*t

The hard-headed stranger from western Ohio,
Surfed onto the board last fall.
And in his garage was the fastest black Spider,
Went one thirty-five you’ll recall.
The hard-headed stranger had no brain to think with,
But his fingers were lightnin’ fast.
His threads seemed senseless, his responses thoughtless,
His word, always the last.

Don't answer, don't question.
He's wild and he’s pointless:
He's deridin' an' hidin’ his brain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him;
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll not post again.

Long time Alfisti from all the world over,
Explained physics to him.
There’s Dolce, Low Mileage, and Brian Shorey,
BigSwede and PapaJim.
But how could they know that this simple Dave Douglas,
Knew more than they could recall.
For this was the guy from Sharonville Ohio,
Who had seen and done it all.

Don't answer, don't question.
He's wild and he’s pointless:
He's deridin' an' hidin’ his brain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him;
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll not post again.

The hard-headed stranger then posted a poll,
Results to show nothing at all.
Didn’t really matter, which way you voted,
In the end the proof was his call.
Feelings that got hurt really don’t matter,
Laughing as he prattled along.
Fired his responses without obvious thinking,
And faster than I wrote this song.

Don't answer, don't question.
He's wild and he’s pointless:
He's deridin' an' hidin’ his brain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him;
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll not post again.

The smartest of posters abandoned the thread
Hard-head kept on, of course.
Talkin’ in circles about torque and judging
It to the power of a horse.
This was the tale of the hard-headed stranger,
And if he should pass your way,
Stay out of the path of the speeding black Spider,
And maybe he’ll soon go away.

Don't answer, don't question.
He's wild and he’s pointless:
He's deridin' an' hidin’ his brain.
Don't fight him, don't spite him;
Just wait till tomorrow,
Maybe he'll not post again.

If not Willie, I has to be OLD rock, like Joe Walsh

Dave posed a challenge, just two weeks ago
Lots of responses, sayin’ it ain't so
He lives in Ohio, and speeds on the street
Builds American Vee-Eights, he must think them neat

Some say he’s crazy, he wastes lots of time
Can’t read the clues at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far………

His Alfa Spider does one-thirty-five
No Competition License, and can’t really drive
If he had a limo, he’d sit in the back
And change all the subjects whenever attacked

He’s settin’ the records, He thinks he’s great
The page count tells me we’re near thirty-eight
This Alfa b-board, though he joined late last year
He’s got more posts than some experts ‘round here

It’s lucky we’re sane after what we’ve been through
Everybody say I'm cool, he's cool
I can't complain but sometimes I still do
Life's been good to me so far……………

He’s in Engineering, some nights until four
It's hard understanding, when you just sweep the floor
It's so tough to handle formulae and fame
We’re all so brainless, he isn’t lame?

They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time
Everybody say oh, yeah, oh, yeah
He keeps on posting, guess I'll never know why
Life's been good to me so far………………

Well--most folks know there are only two kinds of music.

Country and Western

I really like "Where do the flies go in the winter time?"

And for something really touching " I got tears in my ears from lying on my back crying over you "

Sorry, sometimes ah jist caint hep m'self--all choked up an all.
