Desert Island Discs

An interesting quandry...you're trapped on a desert island. You need to choose 8 pieces of music to listen too for the rest of your life, one book (apart from the complete works of shakespeare and whichever holy book your beliefs pertain to) and one 'luxury' (one can only presume that some kind of music player is already catered for on the island!) which has no survival value whatsoever.

So what would you choose, and why?

1.Skin and Bones - The Foo Fighters.
My current favourite tune by the foos and strangely enough what I would choose as my first dance at my wedding (if I have the choice that is).
2. Elgar's Cello Concerto - I love this piece of music, especially the first movement, would have to be played by Jaqueline Du Pre.
3. Enter Sandman - Metallica
For those days where I'm just feeling angry! GRRR
4. Soul Creek - Black Stone Cherries
My current favourite track of all time. Its such a great tune to let go and rock out to.
5. Sweet Child of Mine - Guns N Roses
Just for the riff...never tire of that riff.
6. One - Apocalyptica.
Metallica played on 4 cellos...Classic.
7. World in Union/Jupiter - GUstav Holst/Charlie Skarbek.
I love this piece of music anyway but when you put Skarbeks lyrics to it....cant get much better...reminds me, obviously, of Rugby.
8. California Dreamin' - Mamas and the Papas
Reminds me of Summer, group holidays and just chilling out and relaxing.

Replay by Ken Grimwood. A great unheard of book which I could read again and again. All about the choices we make in life and whether we'd make them any differently given the chance, and the consequences of that change.

A portable Dvd player and a copy of the Crow. The only film I've truely never tired of.

So...what would your choices be?
