Desert Island Discs

I used to listed to BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs quite a lot. In case you haven’t heard this program, the premise is quite simple: well-known (Mostly British) people are asked to list their favourite 10 records. At the end of the program, they select the one disc they would take with them to a fictional desert island. I think they also get to choose one luxury and one book.

Anyway, being that the BBC are unlikely ever to call me into the studios, I thought I might just as well list some of my favourite tracks here*. For the record, as it were:

10.  Kashmir / Led Zeppelin.

9. Closer to the Heart / Rush

8. House of Cards / Radiohead

7. September of my Years / Frank Sinatra

6. O Soave Fanciulla / Luciano Pavarotti

5. Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) / Jimi Hendrix

4. Don’t Interrupt the Sorrow / Joni Mitchell

3. Human Touch / Bruce Springsteen

2. I Believe in You / Talk Talk

1. Powderfinger / Neil Young

*Since this little-read blog is my own personal fiefdom, I may take the liberty of rearranging / updating this list as the mood takes me.
