Desert Island Discs 2019

Talk about weird coincidences, but I was only saying to my wife the other night that I should start this off again for this off-season. It was great sitting in a campsite in Brittany with the Spotify playlist going with a number of bottles of nice red. Looks like KPB jumped the gun already. So if anyone else is game, I thought I would go for round 2. Same rules as before:

You need to pick 8 pieces of music, a book and a luxury item - which can’t be living, a form of communications or similar. You also have to choose one song to keep above all others.

Of course an additional rule for this year is that you have to choose differently, so no repeats for your own choices :mrgreen:

I've dug out last year's thread as a reference:

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7949&hilit=desert+island+discs

So to start things off:

1. Doves - There Goes The Fear (seeing them tomorrow night supporting Noel Gallagher - incredibly good live)

2. George Ezra - Shotgun (my daughter's love this and sing it all the time (and sign it as well!), seems like a real nice bloke too)

3. Haven - Say Something (beautiful song)

4. Embrace - Gravity (ditto)

5. Elbow - Lippy Kids - (the band I most want to see live - haven't managed it yet on several occasions)

6. Human League - Together in Electric Dreams (memories of so many nights out)

7. Hurricane #1 - Step Into My World

8. Manic Street Preachers - A Design For Life

Book- Should Have Got Off At Sydney Parade by Ross O'Carroll Kelly (a wonderful series of satirical books about South Dublin and it's rugby culture. Although it has become a much bigger satire over the years)

Luxury - Pen and book of blank pages so I could write down all my thoughts about everything until I was rescued

Hope this proves almost as popular as last year, we're heading to France in three weeks, so let's get another playlist going!!!! :mrgreen:

1. Isao Tomita - Snowflakes are dancing

2. Ac/Dc - Thunderstruck

3. Wishbone Ash - Throw down the sword

4. Janis Joplin - Summertime

5. David Bowie - Starman

6. Disturbed - Sound of silence

7. Pink Floyd - Run like hell

8. Principality Stadium - Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (I know, I know …. I said this last time! But it is one of the most amazing sounds in song you will hear. I encourage rugby supporters from all nations to attend and experience that sound)

Book- Hitler, My part in his downfall - Spike Milligan

Luxury - Silence from humanity!
Officially 'Happy Clappy'

My list for today:-
That Smell --- Lynyrd Skynyrd
It Ain't Me Babe --- Bob Dylan
Baba O'Riley --- The Who
Requiem Lacrimosa --- Mozart
Soul Sacrifice --- Santana (from Woodstock)
Blackmail --- 10cc
Un Moix i un Ocell --- Juan Bibiloni
Angel From Montgomery/ Sugaree --- Tedeschi Trucks Band
Book --- In the Shadow of the Sword by Tom Holland
Luxury --- A Bodhran (and just a hint of the talent needed to play it.)
The Keeper would be Santana; Mozart being a touch depressing to be left alone with on a desert island.
