Neil's Desert Island Discs choices

On February 4, 2007, Neil appeared on the long-running BBC radio program Desert Island Discs, on which celebrity guests discuss—what else?—which records they would choose to have with them if they were marooned on a deserted island (along with, presumably, the means to play those records). Neil's choices may seem a bit predictable, but only in light of what diehard PSB fans have read of his tastes and favorites through the years. To the more casual listener, they're quite enlightening:

*Shannon's "Give Me Tonight" is, at least to this commentator, Neil's most remarkable selection. It's of course the only "dance song" in the list—well, if you don't count "She Loves You," to which teenagers had danced themselves silly a generation earlier—and I'm intrigued that he would pick this one as opposed to Shannon's far bigger, better-known hit, the drop-dead classic "Let the Music Play."
