Desert Island Discs [Meme]

As I haven't done a meme for a while when Him Up North was asking for victims volunteers to be tagged on his post I stepped up to the plate. Since then I've been wondering what I've let myself in for! Sounds simple enough:

choose 8 tracks that you would have when stuck on a desert island 

then you realise that it's only 8 tracks and what would you really like to be stuck listening to for potentially years....

OK then let's start with something to sing along to:

1) Shania Twain - Man I Feel Like a Woman

Then something to restore my spirits:

2) Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer

Then something to chill to:

3) Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, 3rd Movement

A tune when I need to have a laugh:

4) Wurzels - Combine Harvester

When I need to feel young again:

5) Duran Duran - Rio

Next a tune to fantasise too:

6) Robbie Williams - Angels

I have to include a tune that might make me cry:

7) The Soldiers - Coming Home

Hummm what shall I take as my 8th choice... do I want to sing, dance or chill?

8) George MIchael - Faith

I couldn't get any willing volunteers so if you want to have a go please feel free or just add a comment with your choice for a desert island!

PS apologies for overlapping and layout but those YouTube videos are a nightmare ;-)

    5) When I need to feel young again: Take On Me - A-ha

    6) A tune to fantasise to: Flash - Queen (actually I couldn't think of anything for this, so i went for something generically inspirational)

    7) A tune that might make me cry: Disappear - Dream Theater

    8) One for good luck: The Heart Asks Pleasure First/The Promise - Michael Nyman
