Desert Island Discs: Episode Five, featuring Lifetime Financial Planner Paul Lee:
Here is my list for you all – enjoy or laugh at!
Disc One: One Vision – Queen
I have been a Queen fan since 1984 and it would have been really easy to pick eight Queen tracks, but this is my favourite track, even above Bohemian Rhapsody!
Disc Two: A Bad Dream – Keane
There’s very little music that my wife and I agree on, but Keane is one band upon which we do – and for both of us this is our favourite track from them.
Disc Three: New Sensation – INXS
Back to my school days. Kick by INXS is still one of the most played albums I own – and this iconic track makes the cut onto my final list……
Disc Four: Song 2 – Blur
Disc Five: Whatever – Oasis
I was never into just Blur or just Oasis in the Britpop battle of the 90’s. I sat on the fence and bought albums by them both! The Oasis track ‘Whatever’ was out around the time I bought my first house and sums up my joy of having my own place and being able to do whatever I wanted. Song 2 by Blur brings back memories of playing FIFA 98 on the playstation 1 (how old am I?!!) as this was a track used on the game.
Disc Six: I Predict A Riot – Kaiser Chiefs
I still really love the Kaiser Chiefs but their early work is the best for me – and this track is by far the best.
Disc Seven: Kidz – Take That
This track is from Take That’s Progress album and was out around the time my daughter Hope was born. It says everything that all new parents feel; there truly is ‘trouble when the kids come out’!
Disc Eight: A Day In The Life – The Beatles
One of my prized possessions is a vinyl original Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band album, ‘pinched’ from my mum! This is a great track from that album.
