Desert Island Discs

Bit late on this one. Lisa asks for eight Desert Island Discs. I always get nervous when discussing music since my tastes are far more mainstream than most…I’ve mainly gone for older songs that I still like, since more modern music may not stand the test of time.

  • Jeff Buckley – Hallelujah
    I only listen to this rarely, and I don’t know a more moving song.
  • Céline Dion – To love you more
    Her voice at its best, imho.
  • Elton John – Candle in the wind
    Always a favourite.
  • Hewey Lewis and the News – Power of love
    Perfect rock and roll.
  • Meat Loaf – For crying out loud
    Great lyrics. This just made the list in place of Bat Out of Hell.
  • Katie Melua – Closest thing to crazy
    Beautiful little song, wonderfully sung.
  • Roxette – It must have been love
    Dad always liked this one too – I guess I picked it up from him.
  • Hans Zimmer – Barbarian Horde
    The soaring theme to the Gladiator soundtrack.

I like ballads 🙂
