Desert Island Discs

Desert Island Discs Marian KeyesI recently listened to the author Marian Keyes on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. It was a fascinating and heart felt interview, and the songs that she chose were very moving.

It got me thinking about my own Desert Island Discs, and whilst travelling on the train yesterday I made a list of five songs that move me.

My Desert Island Discs

1) Magic moments by Perry Como

This takes me back to my childhood when my father sang this to me and my younger sister. We played this at his funeral and it still brings tears to my eyes.

2) Band of Gold by Freda Paine

 This was the first single, a boyfriend had ever given to me.

3) Bridge over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel

 This was the first ever album that I purchased.

4) Living Doll by Cliff Richards and the Young Ones

 My daughter asked us to buy this for Comic Relief in 1986, and it still brings back memories of her dancing around to it in the living room.

5) Maggie May by Rod Stewart

 This takes me back to my teenage years.
