How would you go about choosing your Desert Island Discs?

It would be tricky wouldn't it.

And which one would you save?

melpomene - 17 Nov 2021 23:04:18 (#73 of 90)

It would change over time, hard to say.

Today's would be Cure - close to me, Berlioz-symphonie fantastique, Mendelssohn - Fingal's cave overture, Dylan - just like a woman, Joni Mitchell- River, will Smith and jazzy Jeff - summertime, jurassic 5 - concrete schoolyard and Rodrigo's guitar concerto.

Tomorrow might be different.

That's 50/50 songs that have some personal meaning and songs I just would always want to be able to hear. I suppose if you were doing real life DID you'd veer toward the former.

I think animate luxuries are verboten to prevent spouses/partners being chosen.

There is the precedent of Michael Palin in taxidermy.

#72

Good question.

Lawlsie - 18 Nov 2021 08:54:59 (#78 of 90)

#74 I love the Abbey Road medley Popstar. It's my favourite Beatles album. Far better in my view than Pepper

Has anybody ever swapped the bible for another text? Think I would prefer the I Ching

airynothing - 18 Nov 2021 09:50:40 (#80 of 90)

Yes, occasionally. I remember someone asking for the Bhagavad Gita instead.

And a few people have just rejected the religious text entirely - I remember Matt Lucas was one.

raymie - 18 Nov 2021 09:55:35 (#81 of 90)

In principle, I agree with Matt, but if I were to take spiritual/philosophical solace along, the I Ching or Tao te Ching would do

Lawlsie - 18 Nov 2021 12:35:36 (#82 of 90)

Jerry Springer was given The Torah.

airynothing - 18 Nov 2021 13:28:21 (#83 of 90)

Jewish guests are given the Torah, Muslim ones the Qu'ran, and I assume the same applies to adherents of other faiths as well, though I can't think of any offhand.

TommyDGNR8 - 18 Nov 2021 13:55:27 (#84 of 90)

Michael Mansfield tried to swap the bible for something else but was told that wasn't allowed. Castaways don't have to take the religious text, but can't swap.

airynothing - 18 Nov 2021 13:56:50 (#85 of 90)

That noted authority, Google, suggests he ended up with The Rights of Man by Thomas Paine.

41:50 - doesn't sound like it (though I didn't go to the very end)

MontyPeculiar - 19 Nov 2021 17:43:57 (#87 of 90)

Out of interest Popstar, what do you consider is included in the medley. All of Side 2? Everything starting with Because? The five tracks from Money through to Bathroom Window (i.e. all the first ‘joined’ tracks), everything except Her Majesty? Is there in fact a generally accepted definition?

EDIT: ok just checked Wiki which reckons You Never Give Me Your Money through to The End. Which I guess makes sense.

popstar7 - 19 Nov 2021 17:52:05 (#88 of 90)

Yeah, that works for me too.

Beaky1 - 23 Nov 2021 21:44:37 (#89 of 90)

I remember someone unexpected like Pam Ayers or Beryl Cook choosing Stockhausen and the sound of worms eating.

helenskywalker - 23 Nov 2021 21:46:09 (#90 of 90)

Great album.
