Desert Island Discs

You have probably heard of, or maybe even listened to, the BBC Desert Island Discs, in which folks choose which 8 records they would take with them to a desert island, along with one luxury (cannot be anything to escape or rescue - so no boat, tablet or internet connection [sorry 02]) and one book (except The Bible and works of Shakespeare which are provided).

I thought it`d be a bit of fun for posters to share their Desert Island Discs

Here`s mine:

8 songs:

- Imagine (John Lennon)

- Let It Be (The Beatles)

- Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

- My Generation (The Who)

- The Times They Are A-changing (Bob Dylan)

- Sounds Of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel)

- A Whiter Shade Of Pale (Procul Harem)

- All You Need Is Love (The Beatles)

 

Luxury:

- duvet [for the cold nights]

 

Book:

- Guiness Book Of World Records

(I know I`ll never achieve any of them but it`d be fun seeing what folks have achieved)

 

 

Over to you guys....

Re: Desert Island Discs

Well here's my choices @Mi-Amigo:

 

With God On Our Side: Manfred Mann,

 

Hey Jude: The Beatles,

 

Sympathy for the Devil: The Rolling Stones,

 

The Boxer: Simon and Garfunkel,

 

Paperback Writer: The Beatles,

 

Human: Rag'n'Bone Man

 

Wolves: Rag'n'Bone Man,

 

Stairway to Heaven: Led Zepplin

 

Luxury: Bottle of Baccardi and bottles of Coca Cola.

 

Book: Complete Short Stories of Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie.

 

I would probably miss my phone and my games, my TV and DVR, so wouldn't last long on the island.

Re: Desert Island Discs

Ha...I've just noticed I have 'overstepped the mark' with my allowance of discs. I have 11 instead of 8.

 

Too bad, if anyone tries to take 3 away I will punch them on the nose. LOL
