1) Alexandra, If you could take only three albums to listen to on a desert island, what would you take? Rashaad Hi Rashaad, If I were stranded on a deserted island, I would probably take my friend Shawn Hook’s song Thank You or his album Cosmonaut and the Girl because I love his songs Every Red Light and Planet Earth.
