Clicky Island Discs / Tom

It’s a Wednesday, which means a new edition of our Clicky Island Discs series. Yay! Clicky Island Discs has been inspired by the legendary Desert Island Discs, which has been aired on BBC Radio since 1942.
If you’re not aware of the Clicky Island Discs format by now, it’s pretty straight forward. 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?
Songs
Hold You In my Arms by Ray Lamontage
I have a lot of love for this song. It was the first dance song at mine and my wife’s wedding, and reminds me of happy memories.

2. Superstition by Stevie Wonder
Who doesn’t love a bit of the big Steve? Absolute legend, and this is a tune that will get me on my feet and if you are unfortunate enough you will even get me on the karaoke with this one.

3. Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root
This is a real pick me up song, which brings up a lot of emotions. It’s a tune that always helps to put a smile back on my face.

The Message by Grand Master Flash
Arguably the foundation song to rap and hip-hop as we know it today. Perfect song to lay down the rhythm, while I attempt beats in solitude.

5. Beer by Reel Big Fish
One of the many songs from my youth that saw me through teenage years. The title speaks for itself, pretty much sums up what I saw as important in life at the time.

Book
Fables (Comic Series) by Bill Willingham
I’m a bit of a nerd and like things like this, but I have only just touched the surface of this series. The storyline puts a modern twist on fairy tales and folklore. Having only just started on this series, and with 140+ issues I would have plenty to read or if the storyline began to go sour, at least I would have plenty to burn on the fire.
Luxury Item
Bop It
It’s an easy way to pass the time, and surely I would get the worlds highest score. I guess it would be beneficial if this was solar panelled too!
