Van Hanson’s Top Ten

Van Hanson is a busy fellow: songwriter, musician, board game designer and creator/director of Sitka’s 48-hour Film Festival. We’re glad that he found time to pick the ten songs that he’d choose to have with him on a deserted island. He also chose his grandma’s strawberry rhubarb pie, but get this – the recipe is secret – so you’ll have to go straight to the source because we can’t post it here. Here are his songs, and the show.

1. Cars Hiss By My Window – Doors: L.A. Woman

2. I Bombed Korea – Cake: Motorcade of Generosity

3. Something About Us – Daft Punk: Discovery

4. Santeria – Sublime: Sublime

5. Bro Hymn – Pennywise: Pennywise

6. Palmdale – Afroman: The Good Times

7. As Long as you Love me – The Backstreet Boys: As Long as you Love me (Radio Version)

8. Strong Enough – Sheryl Crow: Strong Enough

9. Pokemon Theme Song – (original theme song)

10. I’ll Be – Edwin McCain (the single)
