Desert Island Blog
I'm highly unlikely ever to be asked to appear on Desert Island Discs.
So for the record:-
1. Runaround Sue - Dion and the Belmonts
I love the edge in his voice in a really early perfect pop song
2. Galbraith Street - Ron Sexsmith
Just sublime. Memories of a remembered street.
3. Uncertain Smile - The The
4. Dark Globe - Syd Barrett
"Please lift a hand, I'm only a person". A cry for help from a broken man. Truly affecting.
5. I only have Eyes For You - Flamingos
Soft spot for doo-wop VS?
6. Love Letter - Nick Cave
One of the greatest love songs ever written. A letter from jilted, as a rain storm builds..
7. Caribou - The Pixies
8. Here comes the Flood - Peter Gabriel
Haunting environmental loveliness.
Book - Dirk Bogardes Complete Memoirs. Possibly editing the truth, but very entertaining volumes from a true original.
Luxury - A radio. Your never alone with a radio. Education and entertainment. Plus, when I get bored of them songs I can listen to Heart FM (ugh).
Be interested to see yours folks?
