Desert Island Discs

Warning: a post that's got nothing to do with physical exercise of any kind.  It was "Your Desert Island Discs" on Radio 4 at the weekend, in which listeners were asked to nominate the records they'd take with them to a desert island.  Now I do love a good list, and I like music too, so it got me thinking....which 8 bits of music would I take with me?

Well, let me stress from the start, these are not my favourite songs - I discounted "favourite" as a selection criterion, on the basis that if you were stuck somewhere, totally alone, evoking good and happy memories would be the most important things, hence this little lot remind me of particularly memorable or enjoyable times.  I don't promote them as being of any great merit or worth other than that.  Here goes.  (One last thing - the list would undoubtedly change if I did it again in 6 months time).  In roughly chronological order:


  • Music, John Miles
  • Bette Davis Eyes, Kim Carnes
  • Whip It, Devo
  • Running Up That Hill, Kate Bush
  • Animal, Def Leppard
  • By The Way, Red Hot Chilli Peppers
  • Time To Pretend, MGMT
  • Dog Days Are Over, Florence & The Machine
