    Thumbs up to some decent music being listened to! Rather a fan of the "poppy" (so post-Gabriel) Genesis stuff and of Collins generally, although some of Gabriel's older standalone stuff gets some good playtime in the car too. If I was stranded on an island with only 3 discographies available to me, Genesis and Queen would be 2 of them.

    Fantastic - welcome to the iPod age! Instead of 8 Desert Island Discs we have entire discographies. I assume the MP3 player wasn't the "luxary item". And for book - Kindle?

    Well, you leave me utterly consumed with irresistible curiosity ...

    Pink Floyd? Led Zeppelin? ... Abba?

    Oddly enough I don't think I could pick a 3rd from discographies. It'd have to be a compilation. A large collection of (yes, slight change in taste/genre, but some might see the link) Tiesto, Corsten, PvD, Oakenfold, Armin van Buuren, Airscape, Solar Stone and Rank 1 tracks would probably be it.
    My musical taste shifts around my mood though. My car is currently playing through a collection of 80's awesomeness ranging from the aforementioned two groups toBonnie Tyler, Harold Faltermeyer, Soft Cell and loads of other cheesy greats.

    If push comes to shove, then I think I could do with something like Hans Zimmer. That'd tick a few boxes for me

    I saw Genesis at the NEC back in the early 80's I think - Prince Charles and Diana were there, I remember that.

    Saw Phil Collins at Wembley but we were so far back, and the video screens were way out of sync, that it wasn't great

    I'd take Genesis to a desert island, and Frank Turner (possibly in person, he's quite cute!) but Queen would be a dastardly form of punishment!

    Who would be my third? Hmmm. That's very difficult.
    A seventies compilation maybe to remind me of my youth?
    A bit of Elbow? Maroon 5? Massive Attack? Portishead? Zep? Meatloaf?
    Dunno - choice is too big
    And then there is the classical genre as well....

    Some years ago I started thinking about a proper "Desert Island Discs" list. I'd be picking from this list, but actually refining it to ten or whatever would be hard.


    Baker Street Gerry Rafferty
    Fotheringay Sandy Denny
    Who knows where the time goes Sandy Denny
    Nights in White Satin Moody Blues
    She's Not There Zombies or Santana
    Albatross Fleeetwood Mac
    Rhiannon Fleeetwood Mac
    The Chain Fleeetwood Mac
    Shine on you crazy diamond Pink Floyd
    Learning to fly Pink Floyd
    Keep talking Pink Floyd
    Run Pink Floyd
    Stairway to Heaven Led Zep
    Layla Clapton
    Tears in Heaven Clapton
    Ain't No Love Whitesnake
    Macalla Clannad
    Aqualung Tull
    Locamotive Breath Tull
    Let It Be Beatles
    In My Life Beatles
    Killer Queen Queen
    We Will Rock You Queen
    Emerald Thin Lizzy
    Snow Goose Camel
    Hotel California Eagles
    Fields of Gold Eva Cassidy
    Schools Out Alice Cooper
    The Planets Holst

    If we're talking "Desert Island Disographies" then my list would be headed up by R.E.M. and then the Crowded House/Split Enz family. Third? If someone put a gun to my head and forced me to choose - probably Queen (and various off-shoots). But I'd be so disappointed in all the great music I'll be leaving behind

    I actually sat down and created a playlist - 10 songs each from 10 artists that I thought best summed up my core musical tastes. Here's the artists...

    The Beatles
    David Bowie
    Split Enz
    The Police
    Nirvana
    Toad The Wet Sprocket
    Richard Ashcroft
    Stereophonics
    Liam Finn
    Imagine Dragons

    I look at the list and can't help thinking of all the great bands that are missing from it! Rolling Stones, Roxette, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, The Kinks, T Rex, ..., ...

    The whole concept of Desert Island Discs is a form of torture. How do you choose just 8 songs?

    Okay, sticking with Genesis, I assume I can expand out to related acts? Best/Favourites...

    Genesis - No Son of Mine
    Phil - Another Day In Paradise
    Peter - Solsbury Hill
    Mike - Someone Always Hates Someone
    Tony - Still Takes Me By Surprise

    Honory Mention to Siltskin (Ray Wilson) - Inside.
