Clicky Island Discs / Louise

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?
Louise apologises for not being cool in advance, and blames the fact she was born in the 80’s!
Songs
1. Mmm Bop by Hanson
I love this lively, cheesy song! It reminds me of being young – I used to listen to this whilst walking up a big hill on the way to school.

2. Peaches by The Presidents of the United States of America
This reminds me of being in the forest, which was local to where I grew up. Myself and my sister would sit in the car and listen to this on the radio.

3. Eternal Flame by The Bangles
Another nostalgic song for me – it takes me back to when the Top 40 was on a Sunday evening! My best friend Lizzie used to come around, and after dinner we would listen to the charts in my bedroom and often sing along to this (into a hairbrush). Whenever I hear this song, I reach for a hairbrush and think of Liz!

4. Someone Like You- Adele
Adele has the most amazing voice, and she puts so much emotion into her songs. I think if I were stranded on a desert island, I’d listen to this and think about my family. I also used to play this loads when my daughter, Hetty, was a baby!

5. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
All time no.1 classic. Best song ever – It’s got to be the RHCP version though!

Book
I love a recipe book! I’d probably try to recreate some recipes using things I find on the island!
Luxury Item
I feel lost without my engagement and wedding rings, so both of those if I could!
