Desert Island Discs: Episode 24, Business Development Manager (Wealth Division) Peter Clarke:

Well, here goes, my choices for Lifetime’s Desert Island Discs!

 

Disc One: A Night To Remember – Shalamar

This was the first CD that I bought in the early 1980’s – and I still have it!

 

Disc Two: Trapped – Colonel Abrams

This was playing in 1985, when I was studying hard for 11 ‘O’ Levels and with my saved pocket money, I bought the ‘Picture Disc Vinyl’ which I think is now worth a few quid……..

 

Disc Three: Suffragette City – David Bowie

This coincided with both my studies and my first concert at Maine Road, Manchester in the 1980’s. At the time,  I couldn’t quite work out what my ‘O’ level, historical suffragettes, had to do with Bowie!

 

Disc Four: Wonderwall – Oasis 

This song I played to death, until I was annoying everyone who was within listening distance, namely my family! Day and night for months…….

 

Disc Five: Mustang Sally – The Commitments

Being Irish, this song resonated with me in the early 1990’s and is still my ‘karaoke’ go-to song!

 

Disc Six: Thriller – Michael Jackson

Just the most mesmerising video I had ever seen. I still think that it is the greatest song he ever wrote.

 

Disc Seven: Beautiful Day – U2

Simply a pure classic.

 

Disc Eight: As – George Michael

1998 was a special year for me in my life and I remember George singing this. Very poignant now that he is no longer with us.

 

Choice of Book: Far From The Madding Crowd – Thomas Hardy

I studied Thomas Hardy at school and quickly became addicted.

 

Luxury Item: Water!
