Clicky Island Discs / Hayley

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?
1. I Bet That You Look Good on the Dance Floor by Arctic Monkeys
This takes me back to my uni days. I don’t think you can go to university in Sheffield and not like the Arctic Monkeys. On nights out, wherever you were, you could guarantee this song would be played and everyone would sing and dance their hearts out.

2. Keep the Car Running by Arcade Fire
I don’t really have a reason behind choosing this song, I just love it!

3. Everybody wants to rule the world by Tears for Fears
This song will always take me back to Friday nights back at home, when my sister and I would dance to this in the kitchen with wooden spoons as microphones after a couple of glasses of wine!

4. Mutt by Blink 182
Blink 182 in general just remind me of being a teenager. At school my friends and I would all jump in my friend’s car, put this song on full blast and drive down to the village shop to get lunch.

5. Summercat by Billie the Vision and the Dancers
My boyfriend and I heard an acoustic version of this song at the Botanist in Chester – it sounded brilliant but we had no idea what the song was. Thanks to Google we discovered the original, and it’s now one of our favourite songs to sing-a-long to.

The Beach by Alex Garland
I really enjoyed this book and I think it would be quite fitting too.
Luxury Item
I may as well relax properly, it could also double up as a bed!
