Call it the Vatican's 10 commandments for good listening.

The Holy See's newspaper yesterday published its picks for pop rock paradise, ranging from Michael Jackson's album "Thriller" to Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" and the Beatles' "Revolver."

What L'Osservatore Romano calls a semiserious guide on the road to good music will take you to "Graceland" Paul Simon's album made the cut. And it does get into the "Supernatural" by Carlos Santana.

The newspaper calls them classics to pack for a desert island. The other picks are David Crosby's "If I Could Only Remember My Name," "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac, Donald Fagen's "Nightfly," U2's "Achtung Baby" and "(What's The Story) Morning Glory" by Oasis.


Maybe she will have advice on what not to do in a marriage.

Madonna, who's been divorced twice, is going to be on "The Marriage Ref."

Madonna's spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg confirmed yesterday that Madonna would make an appearance on the upcoming reality show, where celebrities and a referee try to help couples in conflict. The episode has not yet been taped and Rosenberg did not have further details.

Madonna has been married twice, once to Sean Penn and most recently to Guy Ritchie.

The "Marriage Ref" will debut on NBC after the Olympics.


An interior designer is suing CNN anchor Anderson Cooper after she took an unusual fall at an old New York City firehouse that he is converting into a new home.

Killian O'Brien of Brooklyn says in her suit that she plunged 17 feet through the hole that once held the station's fire pole. The pole had been removed, but the hole was uncovered.

The accident happened in September. Her lawyer, Neil Greenberg, says she is lucky to be alive.

Cooper's spokesman would not comment.


Bobby Hoy, a stuntman and actor known for his way with horses in Westerns like "Bonanza" and "The High Chaparral," has died. He was 82.

His wife, Kiva, told the Los Angeles Times that Hoy died Monday of cancer at Northridge Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles.

From 1949 to 2005, Hoy acted and performed stunts in more than 150 productions, including the films "Spartacus," "Operation Petticoat" and "The Defiant Ones."

Hoy co-founded the Stuntmen's Association of Motion Pictures, which helped professionalize stunts, according to its Web site.
