Desert Island Discs: Episode 17, featuring Office Administrator Sheila Lynch:
It was tough whittling the list down to eight songs, but here are my picks:
Disc One: Blue Monday – New Order
The first 12″single I ever bought. Think it lasted about 14 minutes!
Disc Two: I Wanna Be Adored – The Stone Roses
This song was released in 1989, when I was still a teenager! The Stone Roses were the reason I started to listen to ‘Indie’ music. I still listen to their albums to this day and will be digging out my Reni bucket hat in June!
Disc Three: Shakermaker – Oasis
I couldn’t have a list without Oasis or Noel Gallagher. Definitely Maybe is probably my number one album of all time, and this track is my favourite.
Disc Four: Scooby Snacks – Fun Lovin’ Criminals
I have always loved this song – and my kids love it too!
Disc Five: I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor – Arctic Monkeys
The best thing to ever come out of South Yorkshire! I’m always a fan of singer/songwriters and think Alex Turner is one of the best of his generation.
Disc Six: Breezeblocks – Alt-J
I’m a huge fan of Alt-J. Their music isn’t for everyone but it’s definitely worth a listen.
Disc Seven: The Cave – Mumford & Sons
The thing I like most about Mumford & Sons is how simple and organic their music is. We saw them live in December and the show was amazing.
Disc Eight: What Doesn’t Kill You – Jake Bugg
Yet another singer/songwriter to finish off my list. I think Jake Bugg is the most exciting artist to appear since Arctic Monkeys.
Choice of book: War and Peace – Leo Tolstoy
I’ve never read it but hear it’s very long, so it might kill a few weeks getting to the end of it…..!
A pop-up tent. Think it speaks for itself really!
