desert island discs

some years ago, in the book black holes, baby universes, and other essays, stephen hawking got me interested in the BBC program desert island discs:
Desert Island Discs is one of Radio 4's most popular and enduring programmes. Created by Roy Plomley in 1942, the format is simple: each week a guest is invited by Sue Lawley to choose the eight records they would take with them to a desert island.
you also get to chose a book and a luxury.

because i fully expect to not ever appear on the show, here's my list of desert island discs:
  1. henrik goreki's symphony number 3, the symphony of sorrowful songs. a moving, deeply felt piece i think sweeps the range of human emotion.
  2. te deum, by arvo part. beautiful, inspiring music well performed. "It's what God listens to on his iPod" is how one person accurately described it. hoy minimalism ...
  3. the buena vista social club, a charming, warm collection of music.
  4. kind of blue by mile davis, probably some of his best work in my opinion. his own sound, great talent, the birth of a great period in music history.
  5. live at future primative sound sessions, cut chemist and short kut to fulfil my turntablism needs.
  6. andre segovia and his spanish guitar.
  7. the specials, some of the best two tone ska sound.
  8. the cure's staring at the sea, some of their best singles.
book: nabokov's "lolita", translated into english.

luxury: a picture of beth.
