    Ok you're stuck on an idyllic tropical island with your GPS-less iphone, and assuming you have not cannibalized it for parts, you use your handy solar-powered charger to keep it running...but because you tried to hack your iPhone to control communications satellites in order to get rescued, you had to delete all but 5 songs off your iPhone..

    Which 5 songs do you keep?

    Hopefully the great iPhone forum contributors can help me spruce up my outdated and fairly vanilla music selections on my new phone.

    If not, you're dooming me to an eternity of mostly my ex-fiancee's music collection, so tread gently ladies and gentlemen!

    I'd pick a bunch of really long tracks:

    MELVINS - LYSOL (whole album is one track on CD)
    Igor Stravinsky - Rites of Spring
    Captain Beefheart - Kandy Korn
    Throbbing Gristle (any disc from the TG24 box set)
    Nurse With Wound - Great Balls of Fur

    this sounds insane... but i agree with these completely... except i'd rather have "Two Headed Boy Pt. 2" instead of "Holland, 1945"...

    "Name" - Goo Goo Dolls
    "Green Eyes" - Coldplay
    "Your Heart Is An Empty Room" - Death Cab For Cutie
    "Fortunate Fool" - Jack Johnson
    "We Will Become Silhouettes" - The Postal Service

    Or if I could only pick one artist, any five Jack Johnson songs. I believe there's only a certain type of music that could keep me sane if I were stranded on a desert island, and Johnson is the epitome of that style of music.
