Which discs would you take to your desert island?

I have put off answering this question despite having listened attentively to Kirsty (and her predecessors) as she casts people away every week on BBC Radio 4 Desert Island Discs.

I reserve the right to change my mind….most especially because the first draft of the list looks a little melodramatic.

  1. Vienna by Ultravox
  2. Sunrise by New Order
  3. Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber
  4. The One I Love by R.E.M <– save from the waves
  5. Heroes by David Bowie
  6. I want to hold you hand by The Beatles
  7. Fake Plastic Trees by Radiohead
  8. London Calling by the Clash

Book: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (all five parts of the trilogy)
Luxury: A seven iron and either an inexhaustible supply of balls or a ball that cannot be lost nor wear out.
