Desert Island Discs (Nigel, No' 2)

Ye gods! I'm actually ready to post on time!

I've eventually managed to get this down to just 10 songs. It wasn't easy, but I got there. They're not my 10 favourite records of all time, but I've done it as a "Tracks of my years" idea, so they are songs with meaning (and some of them are my favourites). 

As yet there is no cover. The idea is to make a slip case to hold the 10 pieces, but I don't want to limit what people can add to their page, so I'll make the case to fit when I get them back.

This is track No'2 - the everlasting Quo.

In case you're interested, the full list is:

Brighton Rock – Queen
Caroline – Status Quo
Tainted Love – soft Cell
Vienna – Ultravox
Street Tuff – Double Trouble & the Rebel MC
A New England – Kirsty MacColl
The Lark Ascending – Vaughan Williams
Beltaine – Jethro Tull
Read ‘em and weep – Meatloaf
Freebird – Lynyrd Skynyrd


  1. It's looking good it'll be the last one for me. I wonder what will be left.

  2. The one that everybody else avoided like the plague!

  3. That's a good list :) I get it first so plenty of choice for me - just sent you my addy Nigel. Mine is also done so will be winging it's way to Sian sometime this week.

  4. Noooooooo....there is a song on that list that I want big time, but I get this CJ second from last, and so the chances are slim to none it'll still be available. Will keep my fingers crossed tight :)

    Look at you all young and soldiery :) great pics! love the embroidered denim jacket, I had one very similar :)

    Really looking forward to getting going with this CJ....

  5. aw how could I have missed Kirsty off my list??? arghhhh

    looking forward to working on your DI discs...

  6. It's looking fabulous - I'm not even going to think about what song I'd like as I'm the sixth person to see your journal and don't want to be disappointed!

  7. I'm trying not to think about songs but it's hard with this one cos I get it second so Karen keep yer hands off.... nah I won't say which one I want lol. Love it Nigel :o)
