I just received word from the ASS (American Space Society) that my family has been chosen for Ark Six-Sixty-Six. My wife, my dog, and myself have been selected to survive. On this Ark, there are no cell phones, there are no MP3 players, No iPods – not even Zunes.
Because these ships were developed secretly in the 1990s, there are only CD players available for each family – and each person is only allowed to bring one compact disc each.
Wow, space really is limited.
I am forced to make the toughest decision of my life. I can bring a CD with me to the giant spaceship that chose me to survive the the soon to be exploding Earth – but on that CD I am only allowed 16 songs.
Well obviously all 16 Songs will be Iron Maiden songs – but which 16? From which albums?
I think it’s only fair, and an amazing coincidence, that Iron Maiden (at the time of Earth’s final days) has sixteen albums – and I have 16 tracks to choose for my space CD.
So it comes down to this. One song. One song from each album. I must choose one song from each Iron Maiden album as the only song that I can listen to for the rest of my life. In space. In a spaceship. Have I over complicated this simple premise enough?
