    well,what would you choose?

    I see Ed Miliband has been derided about his song choices on Desert Island Discs. So..,what would you choose? only 4 songs though not the normal 8. Is there anything that would shock or embaras your family and friends?

    Music by John Miles
    Angels by Robbie Williams
    It was a Very Good Year - by Frank Sinatra
    Love will Keep us Alive - Eagles

    I'm quite shallow really!

            The theme from Jurassic Park by John Williams + Orchestra.

            Sweet Caroline Neil Diamond.

            Bring him Home Alfie Boe

            Pure imagination from the film Willy Wonka

            It could be many more so much choice...Taffy

                  Desert Island discs

                  Am I allowed classical music Jan? If so my choice would be some lengthy compositions by my favourite composers......saves having to change the record frequently!

                  1 Vaughn Williams
                  2 Rachmaninov
                  3 Debussy
                  4 Paderewski

                  And if I was allowed one pop song, it would be Hotel California by the Eagles - 'you can check out anytime you like....but you can never leave.'

                      Glory of Love - Peter Cetera
                      I'll be missing you- Puff Daddy and Faith Adams
                      Because you loved me - Celine Dion ( Good taste drewlin, wigan)

                      I'd struggle with a 4th but it would be an old madonna original - crazy for you, cherish or dear jessie.

                      Probably more fun would be having the nerve to say why they are favourite haha

                            although "Angels" by Robbie Williams would be in my top ten, if it's only four, I'll go for;
                            One; U2
                            Gimme Shelter; Rolling Stones (brainwashing from husband)
                            Losing my Religion; R.E.M.
                            American Trilogy; Elvis

                            Oops, a bit depressing...time for a cruise!
