    If forced to choose one and only one song, I would take none. I can’t think of worse torture than having to choose one song that I’d want to listen to for eternity. Better to remember the songs I’ve heard than erase them from my head with song over and over and over.

    Sarah B.’s a cheater! Sarah B.’s a cheater! Kidding.

    I can’t believe you said “Tupelo Honey,” which makes me melt…that and “And it Stoned Me.”

    That said, my choices:

    “Crimson and Clover” by Tommy James and the Shondells (a little sparse on lyrics, but that’s what the book’s for).

    “Cat’s Cradle” by Kurt Vonnegut. Hey, if it’s the end of the world, might as well enjoy yourself reading about your sad situation.

  • http://queserasera.blogspot.com Sarah B.

    I didn’t cheat! They totally sell them all in one big book now. If I had to just pick one, though, I think I’d go with “The Voyage of the Dawntreader,” because inside, I am forever nine.

  • http://www.meamea.blogspot.com Miss Mea-Mea

    “Wild is the Wind” by David Bowie(the BBC version). I sigh and get all swoony every time I hear him warble.

    Slackjaw, I’d have to agree with you. If there was only one book in the world I could read, it would be Lord of the Rings.

  • Kate

    Much better, Sarah B. Miss Mea-Mea, now you’re cheating too (I think I’ll be the class tattletale for the day). One book, not all three! That’s like saying your favorite movie is the Godfather Trilogy.

    I’m actually reading The Voyage of the Dawn Treader right now… the boyfriend bought me the boxed set since I hadn’t read it since I was 12. I forgot how annoying Eustace is. It’s making me want to rip the pages out of my book.

    Points to consider:
    1. I do not recall inviting you into my cave during the nuclear event.
    2. I am very old and do not have long to live.
    3. I only care what dooce thinks.
    Thank you for caring and sharing.

  • http://www.meamea.blogspot.com Miss Mea-Mea

    Oh, goody! I get to be all super-dweeb now.

    Kate, actually the Lord of the Rings is one big book. It’s what Tolkien intended. Think of it as having three parts.

  • http://www.killerchicken.blogspot.com Kelly

    I’m gonna have to go ahead and say Echo by Incubus and the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. It’s kinda cheating, but I have them all in one book so it still counts, right?
