If you were on a desert island

and you had only three "songs" you could have to listen to there, what would they be?
This is something my friends and I have been doing lately during the lock-down and I thought it would be fun to see what you all would pick. Here are three of my all time favorites from three different genres:
Key to the Highway Derek and the Dominoes
Spanish Key Miles Davis
6th Symphony Dmitri Shostakovich

    Hehe, OP did use "songs" instead of songs @federica

    I suppose one could make three very long mixes, only limited to whatever technology/storage one was limited to.

    @walker you reminded me of some cds in the 90s where they mixed the ends of songs together, those were fun days...

    I think I'd take
    Baby Shark
    Gangnam Style
    And I'm open to suggestions on the last one but maybe Who Let The Dogs Out

    You see, this way I could torture my fellow castaways into giving me stuff to stop playing the songs. 😈🎶

    You think you jest... isn't this the way the US Government got their hands on Noriega?

    Seriously though, I don't actually listen to music all that much and I don't have a list of favorite songs. As a general principle though I would want something that I can dance and sing to. I would want something soothing and relaxing, a piece of classical music perhaps. And I would want something that would motivate and inspire me to keep trying.

    I might have 3 versions of John Cages masterpiece

    Not that I would ever play them ... probably be too busy listening to ambient sounds not recorded on a desert island ... :p
