Clicky Island Discs / Bethany
Inspired by the legendary Desert Island Discs of BBC radio, 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’s the turn of our SEO Assistant Bethany to give us her Clicky Island Discs:
1. For Reasons Unknown by The Killers
The Killers will always be my favourite band, and this is one of my favourite songs from everything they have released. I think I’d have fun singing along to this at full volume knowing I wouldn’t be irritating anyone with my terrible singing voice.
2. Butterflies and Hurricanes by Muse
I’ve been fortunate enough to see Muse live twice and I hope I’ll get to see them on tour again. I love Butterflies and Hurricanes mainly because of the beautiful piano solo in the middle of the song, and I hope to learn how to play it someday. Might be difficult on an island without a piano though…
3. Breathe by Sean Paul & Blu Cantrell
I think I was about 9-10 years old when this song was first released, and I loved it so much I bought the single which contained three equally brilliant versions of the same song. Still get excited when it comes on the radio so I doubt I’ll get fed up of hearing it on a desert island.
4. Don’t You Want Me by The Human League
This used to be on a party compilation tape (yes, as in tape cassette), that was always playing during car journeys to and from our family holiday destinations. I still love it and look forward to listening to it on the island!
5. Jumping All Over The World by Scooter
Everyone needs a little bit of Scooter in their lives. I can easily use this song as a party anthem for when I’ve finished crying out being stranded on an island. I’m ashamed to admit it but this song is in my 25 most played songs on iTunes. The lyrics in particular are especially complex and meaningful; “Every minute, every hour, got the power, take a hour”.
I’m a big fan of Cecilia Ahern books and have quite a big collection of them now. I’d probably bring “Where Rainbows End”. It’s quite different to most books as it’s entirely written with emails, letters, text messages and instant messages. I’d probably be happy to read this over and over again.
Nothing irritates me more than having extremely tangled and messy hair. I think a hairbrush will be vital in order to keep me sane. Plus, I’d want to look reasonably presentable if I’m shown being rescued on the news
