Some of the UK garagers might have seen that the Beeb threw open the eight favourite records to take to a desert islandto a national poll. 25000 people replied and the results were, in my view, execrable. Pink Floyd and Queen and some predictable and dull classical choices. I wondered if we could raise our own top eight favourite songs on the Garage. Rules say you can only have one song by any given artist. All lists have to have one Pat track as a mandatory requirement, but I am sure they would anyway. I am still thinking of my top eight. Anybody want to kick this off? I’m sure they’ll be a lot better than the ones which turned up in the poll!

Bookmark and Share DID with 8 favourites, quite hard to choose, yes. But on my next desert island trip I’ll have with me something from Joni (what’ll it be, uhm, Jericho, what a voice, such timing, such phrasing), the Dan (still thinking, Green Earrings, no wait, Dr Wu!), Mr Rundgren (Wailing Wall, no doubt about this one), Brian Wilson (mm, so many good ones, Surf’s Up?), Beatles (yep, Happiness is a Warm Gun), couple of progrock pieces: Yes (Yours is no Disgrace probably); and Gentle Giant (let me see, In a Glass House), but wait a minute, how about Brand X (Black Moon, I love that Percy Jones bit there), early Neil Young stuff (Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, how appropriate!). Is that eight tunes? Or maybe a bonus track, no one would mind. Oh, and let’s not forget an extra disc with 8 faves from good old Pat, hidden in the backpack somewhere. Speaking of impossible choices .

Bookmark and Share A nice shiny double sided CD that would reflect sunlight so the rescue plane would see you might work too. Pretty well actually.

Bookmark and Share In the spirit of the original concept of Desert Island Disks , my one ’luxury item’ would be an iPod with access to the ’cloud’-o-sphere in which every recording under the sun is accessible . That or an ironing board that doubles up as a surfboard .

Bookmark and Share It would have to be very big island as I have 1600+ CDs. It would be difficult to narrow list to favorite 100.

Bookmark and Share Not surprising the poll would have very populist albums listed. Its the nature of the game. My top 8 would probably be: Ligeti ’’lux eterna’’ Bartok ’’music for strings percussion and celeste’’ Allan Holdsworth ’’Devil take the hindmost’’ Pat/ornette Endangered species’’ Led Zeppelin ’’dazed and confused’’ Schoenberg ’’Piano concerto’’ Ralph Towner ’’beneath an evening sky’’ John Scofield ’Blue matter’’ it tends to change over time and mood.
