    you can have the complete works of 5 music artists to play in your neverending music player, but only 5. Who do you choose?

    1-4 are somewhat obvious choices for me. However, number 5 is hard.......I have to choose between Willie Nelson, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Def Leppard, Beethovan, Mozart, Jimmy Buffett, Frank Sinatra, AC/DC, or the Beach Boys.

    1. The Cure (my favorite music group)
    2. George Strait (my favorite country singer and solo artist)
    3. The Cranberries (I needed at least one female voice, and I love their music)
    4. Depeche Mode (my second favorite music group)
    5. The Beach Boys (a childhood favorite, I love most of their music)

    This is hard... So many groups/singers where I like 1-3 songs, but not a lot where I like a good chunk of their catalog...

    1. The Beatles- So many good songs I like.
    2. The Rolling Stones- See above.
    3. Roy Orbison- It would be like God was singing.
    4. ABBA- Yeah, cheesy pop music- But I like a lot of their stuff.
    5. The Village People- Yeah I know.

    No harm listing Percy Faith... It was a heck of a catalog. Theme from "A Summer's Place" was the Billboard #1 hit for weeks on end. Mega hit.

    Herb Alpert could easily be listed in someone's top-5.

    So could John Williams (the composer found on many hit movies...

    -Jaws
    -Star Wars
    -Jurassic Park
    -Indiana Jones
    -ET
    -Close Encounters
    -Superman
    -Harry Potter
    -Saving Private Ryan

    Just a small part of an incredible catalog.

    You know I want to replace the Beach Boys. At 5 will now be the Newsboys......I love their music, especially the Peter Furler years.
