Clicky Island Discs / Vic

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?
Vic, who recently joined the Clicky team as our Content & Outreach Exec, takes centre stage this week:


1. Man! I Feel Like a Woman by Shania Twain
I’d only have to hear it once, and it would be stuck in my head all day. That’s good value when my electricity supply is likely to be limited.

2. Survivor by Destiny’s Child
A bit of a morale booster when you’re alone on a desert island I think, especially as in the video someone comes to rescue them off the island in the end.

3. Hypest Hype by Chase & Status
Because on an isolated desert island, no-one will see me dancing like an idiot.

4. RESPECT by Aretha Franklin
Because on an isolated desert island, no-one will hear me singing out of tune..

5. Bat out of Hell by Meatloaf
This + cherry tango is like creative rocket fuel for me. If I’m ever going to come up with a way to get off this island, it will be motivated by this song. Probably.


Can I cheat slightly and bring an entire book series? I’ll take George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” series (the Game of Thrones books), because they’re massive and will keep me occupied for ages.

Luxury Item

A bed
A proper one, not one I’ve had to fashion out of sand and palm leaves and things. It will probably prolong my sanity by at least a week.
Missed last week’s Clicky Island Discs? Not to worry, you can find it here.
