Desert Island Discs – Michael Caine

I’ve been listening to the Sunday repeat of Michael Caine’s Desert Island Discs (on BBC Radio 4), and it has to be said he has a surprising range of music in his choices. The opening song was Cold Play’s “Viva la Vida”, he also had music by Elbow and Bent’s “Swollen” (making a joke that someone should do a mashup of the two and call it “Swollen Bent Elbox”); as well as more conventional choices, such as Elgar’s “Nimrod” and John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (Was is Over)”.

All in all, a very pleasant show, and worth listening to – it should be up on Iplayer in a little while.
