Desert Island Discs Revisited

D and I had a go at our Desert Island Discs in the car in Campbell Park, Milton Keynes back in August (06).

Here is what I came up with:

1* Miles Davis - Flamenco Sketches
2 John Coltrane - A Love Supreme part 1
3 Marvin Gaye - Mercy Mercy Me
4 Satie - Gymnopedie
5 Bruce Springsteen - Into the Fire
6 Siouxsie + the Banshees - Icon
7 Sinead O'Connor - On Raglan Road
8 Frank Sinatra - One for my Baby

revised from:

1* Miles Davis - Flamenco Sketches
2 John Coltrane - A Love Supreme part 1
3 Marvin Gaye - Mercy Mercy Me (?)
4 Curtis Mayfield - Move On Up
5 The Clash - White Man in Hammersmith Palais
6 Bill Evans - Love theme from Spartacus
7 Bjork - Hyperballad
8 The Doors - The End

And here's young D's first stab at it (then age 6):
1 Madness - Embarrassment
2 Bruce Spingsteen - Atlantic City
3 The Cranberries - Ode to my Family
4 Cornershop - Brimful of asha
5 Max Romeo - I Chase the Devil
6 Trumpton - Windy Miller song
7 The Jam - Batman theme
8 AC/DC - It's a long way to the top

Meanwhile N (age 11) had written his out long hand in a notebook, taking several months to pin his choice down:
1 U2 - Vertigo
2 Unite Tribe - Life and Death
3 Oxmo Puccino and the Jazzbastards - Perdre et Gagner
4 The Cure - Love cats
5 * Michael Franti & Spearhead - Sometimes
6 MC Solaar - Solaar Pleure
7 The Raconteurs - Steady as she goes
8 Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit

I was just listening to the Max Romeo the other day on a great Lee Perry triple CD - Arkology. I predict a bright future for the lad. When I am back home (just arrived in Kosovo I will add my daughter Lily's to this. Number one is likely to be DJ Shadow's '6 Days'.
