Desert Islands Discs

To carry on from Robb's recent music articles. I thought a game of desert island discs might be interesting.

I'm sure most of you are aware of the concept... You are stuck on a desert island and can bring 8 songs, 1 book and a luxury item.

1) Sigur Rós - Dauðalogn
2) Kanye & Jay Z - Who Gon Stop Me
3) Kate Bush - This Woman's Work
4) Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Otherside
5) The Beatles - Blackbird
6) Beach Boys - God Only Knows
7) Max Richter - On The Nature Of Daylight
8) Fleetwood Mac - Landslide

Book - Jack Kerouac - On The Road

Luxury item - A Steinway grand piano

----------

This would look incongruous indeed on a desert island -and what about when it rains?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Sits under the palm tree

Your not thinking - it is a DESERT island, it doesn't rain. And why sit under a palm tree when you can sit under the massive Steinway for shade?

That all said, there's a massive chance the sun then cool, clear nights totally facks the tuning out so you are gonna need tuning tools and a frequency analyser or a very good ear.

Can the luxury item be a woman?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The rules about this have been set earlier.

The island will allow a woman as your luxury item, but she dies during transit.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm sure there'd be some who would be OK with a dead woman.

Not that I wanna be accused of being misogynistic but this week I might do a ‘top 10 hottest women ever” article. Probably gonna get shut down but like the Young Guns, I get shot down in a blaze of glory.
