My Desert Island Discs

The lovely Morgan over at Shaking Away the Cobwebs tagged me in the the Desert Island Discs thingy what seems like ages ago...It took me ages to decide on 8 songs and then I changed a couple.....Imagine only listening to 8 songs for the rest of your life....

So what we do is pick 8 pieces of music that you would like to have on a desert island, a book and a luxury item....Here's mine!

1 - Bon Jovi - Always! 

It's mine and my fella's song....I love all of Bon Jovi's songs but this one is definitely my favourite! 

2 - My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the black parade!

Another song which holds a lot of memories for me....When I first moved to Ashington this was out in the charts and as we didn't have the internet or Sky TV in I had to resort to listening to the Radio...This was always being played....I even went out and bought the single on My fella and I always said when we get married we're having this as our first dance..I'm sure my friends will appreciate it....My family not so much....

3. Black Eyed Peas - I gotta feeling!

This is my going out song.....It has to be played before a night out.....It always puts me in a great mood!

4. Kenny Rogers - The Gambler 

I love this song...The first time I actually heard it was way back in the early 2000's on the Wrestling....The Rock sung it to Stone Cold (which was so funny by the way) and it sounded so catchy...I downloaded it and listened to it properly....So many lessons in life to learn from it....

5. Hanson - Mmmbop

Ahh the summer of 1997.....This song reminds me of then! My best friend and I annoying her brother to drive us about in his car with this song blasting....We were so not cool! lol So cheesy it's good!

6. Bare Naked Ladies - One Week

I love this song....I feel so clever when I sing it as I know all the words....hehehe My friend and I learnt them all years ago....The most random lyrics!! 

Chickity China the Chinese chicken
You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'
Watchin' X-Files with no lights on
We're dans la maison
I hope the Smoking Man's in this one
Like Harrison Ford I'm getting frantic
Like Sting I'm tantric
Like Snickers, guaranteed to satisfy

7. One Direction - Little Things

Just because I love this song....It doesn't mean I love those silly boys from One Direction...My girls do though! This song makes me think of them....

8. Glee - Don't stop Believin 

I do like the Journey version of this but I am a massive Glee fan....This always makes me smile!!

For the book I would take The SAS Survival Handbook: The ultimate guide to surviving...hehehe 

My luxury item would be a big comfy bed!! I do like my sleep!!

I tag you all to take part in this!! 


  1. Good choices..I love One Direction - Little Things...

  2. Thanks Kim, I'm going to be mmm bopping all the way home now! I used to adore Hanson lol. Great choices.

  3. I'd have to have an Oasis song in mine - Don't look back in anger - love it!

    1. I was never too keen on Oasis! I preferred Blur....hehehe x

  4. This is a great idea - I'm off to think about mine now. Loved your book choice as well - very practical!

  5. Hey I love this idea! I dont have a clue what I would choose though....eight songs...impossible! My mind is ticking though! X

  6. I love that Barenaked Ladies song, I'll be singing it all night now :) x

  7. Haha! Some fun choices there. I love the Chemical Romance song too - not sure if I'd ever have thought of it as a wedding song though! #PoCoLo

  8. Hi Kim, you've got some great picks there! Sorry, I've only just seen this post - half term interruptions. Anyway I totally agree with your number three, that's just the song I pick before I go out too! Great post. x
