Radio 4 just did a listeners' "best of" where non celebs could send in their own selections and they were compiled into a chart.

So, if you could pick eight pieces of music and one luxury item for a long stay in sun-drenched solitary what would they be?

...Obviously too many options etc...but the following eight songs were the ones I picked. I tried not to ponder too much and the criteria was songs I'd want to listen to often on a desert isle...

1. Earthbeat by The Slits (fave)
2. Before the Bullfight by David Sylvian
3. Prelude to 110 or 220/Women of the World by Jim O'Rourke
4. Living Proof by Cat Power
5. Persian Love by Holger Czukay
6. Old Glory by Harvey Milk
7. The Seven Samurai End Theme by Ryuichi Sakamoto
8. Cold Blooded Old Times by Smog

People mentioned books and I plumped for The Periodic Table by Primo Levi...
