What are your 'Desert Island Discs'?


What are your 'Desert Island Discs'?

Hey everyone!


So being a fairly new moderator on the community I thought it would be a good to get an idea of what music everyone enjoys. 


What better way than to pick your desert island discs?


So it's pretty simple, you are stranded on a desert island with a working CD player- which 5 albums do you have with you? (No greatest hits or compilations!!)


To keep with the 'Desert Island Discs' theme, choose 1 book and 1 luxury item too. 


I'll start us off...


5 Albums

Stereophonics – You Gotta Go There To Come Back

Jamie T – Panic Prevention

Coldplay – A Rush Of Blood To The Head

M83 – Hurry Up We're Dreaming

1 Luxury Item
