Clicky Island Discs / Josh

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?
This time, it’s the turn of our new PPC Assistant Josh to share his favourites!

Songs

Heart Shaped Box – Nirvana
I could just pick 5 Nirvana songs and been done with that but I suppose that wouldn’t be a good read so I just picked one at random. They’re my favourite band and Kurt Cobain is my favourite vocalist.

Paper Wings – Rise Against
The first song of theirs I ever heard and the first band I ever saw live and possibly the best gig I ever went too. Been hooked on them ever since.

Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd
This is another hard one to pick. It was either this or Comfortably Numb as my favourite song by Pink Floyd but I think this is my favourite opening to any song and reminds me of summers in high school.

In Waves – Trivium
I went to Download 2014 and saw Trivium for the first time and the atmosphere was incredible. Safe to say I came away from the weekend with a lot of bruises, most of them from their performance!

 
The Whole of the Moon – The Waterboys
Bit of a curveball this one but it just reminds me of a specific New Years Eve with my bestfriend and never fails to make me laugh.

Book

This is a hard one, I’d probably take Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien I’ve read it too many times to count at this point so a few more on a desert paradise wouldn’t hurt!

Luxury item

My luxury item would have to be my laptop with all my games on it, I’d need to take a solar battery charger too though!
