Desert Island Discs

I was thinking this weekend about the concept of my Desert Island Discs. You know, assuming you had a Discman with a case of batteries or something, which CDs would you take with you to a desert island? And I’m not talking about which discs you “should” take, what other people think are classic records, but which ones you listen to a lot and couldn’t live without. Limit yourself to 10, and no Greatest Hits collections allowed. Here are mine. In no particular order:

  • Pixies-Doolittle
  • Pixies-Surfer Rosa
  • The The-Soul Mining
  • Bowie-Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars
  • Rheostatics-Whale Music
  • Spoon-Telephono
  • The Wedding Present-George Best
  • The Waterboys-This is the Sea
  • Stevie Wonder-Songs in the Key of Life (I guess this counts as two because it’s two discs)

What are yours?
