Write in the box your 5 pieces of music & why
My kind of music features Folk and Musical Theatre and my 5 pieces reflect this. I also have a vastly inflated sense of humour which I reckon you'd need if stuck on a Desert Island!!! All of these are amusing pieces. I hope you enjoy them too.
1 From their CD "At the drop of a hat" by Michael Flanders and Donald Swan - "The Hippopotamus Song". These guys were great entertainers and I enjoyed them on the radio before their programmes on television. CLICK HERE
2 "Kiss Me Kate" blends Shakespeare and music beautifully. As usual the wpman wins the contest and this song is a clever reflection of how the woman is always right!! Enjoy "I hate men! (I don't really - honest!) CLICK HERE
3 Barbara Dickson is a wonderful Scottish folk singerIt was difficult to choose a favourite as I like them all but I think her "Caravan Song" is one of the best. CLICK HERE
4 I've always been a fan of John Denver. He has lots of wonderful songs written by himself such as "Take me home Country Roads" which is what you might want if stuck on a desert island, though a boat would probably be better! CLICK HERE
5 My favourite singer and comedian is Glasgow's very own Billy Connolly. He always make me laugh. From his musical tour of Scotland i recommend "I wish I was in Glasgow" which I'd certainly be saying on a desert island! CLICK HERE
Your book & why
I love playing Bridge and read a lot of Bridge books. To keep me amused and not over using the brain, I'd like to take "The Bridge Adventures of Robin Hood by David Bird.
Your luxury item & why
I would definitely want a lap top computer with my favourite bridge programme - "Jack Bridge" - so I could continue to enjoy playing this wonderful game!
