Desert Island Discs [Music]
Oh no, your ship has sunk and you've found yourself marooned on a desert island! During the sinking you were able to save your 8 favourite pieces of music, a single book (the island contains a copy of an appropriate religious text and the complete works of Shakespeare) and a luxury (that can't help you escape or communicate with the outside).
What I ask, is which 8 pieces of music, book and luxury would you choose and why?
Obviously inspired by the long-running BBC radio series of the same name
My music choices would be:
Empire of the Sun I would choose purely because I much associate them with my time at university, and the memories it conjures up when I hear it. In a similar vein, I'd choose 'Rule Britannia', nothing to do with patriotism, but instead it's a song my step-dad would blast out on the stereo on a Sunday morning to get us all out of bed. Another song I don't particularly enjoy per se is Phantom of the Opera. On long car journeys to France or Italy for holiday a tape/CD that would frequently be played by my parents was a musical compilation.
And the rest:
The book I would take is 'The Deeper Meaning of Liff', by no means the greatest book I have ever read, but I just love it and frequently return to dip in, with my copy being the most battered and dog-eared book in my collection.
The luxury I would take would probably be a DVD player and boxsets of the Wire
