Just for amusement value, given the disparate music tastes on offer, if ever (god forbid) you ended up being interviewed by Sue Lawley on Desert Island Discs, which, say, six songs would you pick?

My Bloody Valentine- "You made me realise"

Though I'm quite tempted to pick something off "The fucking cunts treat us like pricks" by Flux of Pink Indians just to hear Sue say rude words on the radio.

I'm intrigued by "Daydream Believer", I must say...

A great song. T'would be churlish to deny it.

I think you should explain why you've picked those tracks. :)

That said, spare us the life story in between... :lol:

I'd definately want a couple vinyl records. I reckon they could be melted into bowls used for eating/drinking, keeping fish in etc. A few CDs would be handy, the reflective surface could signal passing boats and the cases could be made into useful cutting implements. Tapes would be really handy for making snares and fishing lines. You could probably magnetise a thin metal object to make into a compass with a tape too.
