Clicky Island Discs / Belinda
We’ve asked the Clicky team; before they’re castaway on a remote desert island in the middle of nowhere with only themselves as company, what 5 songs, book and luxury item would they take with them? It has of course been inspired by the legendary Desert Island Discs from BBC radio.
This weeks Clicky Island Discs features Belinda, and she says: ‘if I was going to be stuck on a desert island, I would want to dance as much as possible to kill time until I was discovered by the Clicky rescue party. With that in mind, here are a few songs that always get me up and dancing’!
1. Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey
This was the last song played at our wedding, and each time I hear it I am reminded of that moment; a filled dance floor with all of our friends and family. It was easily one of my favourite moments from our wedding, and hearing that song always takes me back!
2. Proud Mary by Tina Turner
This song is on the web team playlist and each time it’s played I have a tough time not dancing, even just a little bit. It cheers me up on stressful days that’s for sure!
3. Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
I am originally from Seattle, Washington, so there is something about hearing a bit of Macklemore that reminds me of being back in the States. I also love the beat of this song, and I find myself listening to it when I need to get excited for the day!
4. Shining Star by Earth Wind and Fire
I don’t know if it’s the brass or the beat, but I love this song. It is fun, upbeat and honestly makes me want to dance a bit.
5. P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing) by Michael Jackson
What list would be complete without a little Michael Jackson? I had a tough time deciding which song to pick, but I finally decided on PYT because this song just makes me happy.
Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert
This book tells the epic story of Alma Whittaker, a scientist who travels the world following her life’s ambition. It is beautifully written, and I would love to dive back into that book.
Perfect for relaxing or sleeping after a long day of desert island surviving!
