This slower and shorter work week has folks’ brains in some really odd places.

After a brutal morning of meetings, we took a late lunch, and the next odd lunchtime conversation questions came up.

  • What song would you have played at your funeral?
  • If you were trapped on a desert island and could only have 10 CDs with you, what would they be?

I haven’t thought hard enough on either of these to have an answer ready. For the first question, the range of music I like is so broad that I’m finding it tough to narrow it down to one song. Would you pick a tune you loved? Or, would you pick something that reflects your philosphy of life? Perhaps you’d pick something silly to make folks giggle at your funeral.

For the desert island question, I’m also struggling with an answer. Some albums come to mind instantly — Meat Loaf’s Bat out of Hell, for example — but I need to ponder this a bit. After all, we are talking music you’d be listening to for a long, long time on your coconut powered CD player.

Ahhh, nothing like a little philosophy to end the year with, eh!
