I can remember staring at Kate and thinking for the 1st time that, 'I love breasts'.

Too right. When the researcher first got in touch to sound me out about appearing I thought it was a wum!

Apologies to you and tonight's guest, Elephantstone, for last week's no show, due to work commitments.

Let's get straight on with it then, here are Elephantstone's 8 most memorable tunes he would like to take with him to Tissue Island.....

These aren’t necessarily my favourite songs but with being stuck on a desert Island I will want to bring some tunes with me that will evoke certain memories of places, people and times. These tunes all have their places etched in my memories of distant voices, times, emotions and people who have been in and out of my life.

1) There is a light that never goes out - The Smiths
A timeless classic its has everything – love, death, fear, rejection, anxiety, suicide….. 'Oh God! My chance has come at last', but then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn't ask." I’m sure there are many on here have sat through this scenario thinking they should have acted on impulse with a chick.

2) Come Dancing – The kinks
A great song which evokes happy memories. The Kinks were one of my favourite bands when I was growing up.This is a really catchy tune with great lyrics and storyline of watching his older sister making here way through life and love……"I was the guy that would
end up blowing all his wages for the week All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek"


3) And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind – Elvis
A great tune written by neil Diamond but performed by The King. Like many other songs he took and made his own.This was recorded in his real Golden period of 1969 when Elvis was spiritually fit and healthy. His voice coupled with the lyrics are just amazing. This song is very special to me in more ways than one

4) Sunday Morning Coming Down - Johnny Cash
This is a great tune written by Kris kristofferson but suits Johnny Cash’s more gravely voice and persona. I had many Sunday mornings coming down…..it could have been written any day for me. Thankfully I stopped drinking nearly 12 years ago

5) Redemption Song - The Chieftains featuring Ziggy Marley
I love the arrangement on this tune fusing Reggae/folk with traditional Irish. I’m a big fan of Irish folk/trad and this song compliments both. Written by Bob Marley it has been covered by loads of artists including Johnny Cash, Sinead O’Connor, Christy Moore, U2 and I have heard Ian Brown has recorded a version but I am yet to hear it.

6) Bizarre love triangle – Frente
I stumbled on this tune by accident a few years ago I obviously heard and loved the original by New Order but this version by Frente is just excellent. I love the gentle acoustic feel to the tune. This was probably New Orders best song …."every time i think of you i get a shock right through into a bolt of blue it’s no problem of mine but it’s a problem i find ...living a life I cant leave behind". Lyrically brilliant.

7) Geno – Dexys Midnight Runners

Geno Geno Geno Geno This was the first record I bought way back in days of 1980 great intro, great beat woah Geno.A tribute to Geno Washington of the Ram Jam Ban. I was only 9 and just started getting into music. There was a black girl who lived next door and we used to bring the empty pop bottles back to buy the singles from Sifters

8) 'Sweet, Sweet Spirit' – JD Sumner and The Stamps.
These were Elvis’s backing bandfrom about 71 onwards and during concerts he would take a breather whilst they sang this Gospel song. I don’t know if he wrote this song but he is accredited with writing 700 Gospel songs! And he recorded the lowest ever recorded note. This is a real moving tune which reminds me of my own immortality.

Good evening Elephant, and welcome to the studio.

Quite a diverse list of tracks as usual on TID's, so let's start off with your first choice, the 1986 Morrisey/Marr track from the Queen Is Dead LP, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out, which coincidentally was not actually released as a single until 1992.

Did you ever see the band live?
some very good choices there mr stone

particularly fond on the smiths number which has some resonance

and one of my favourtie kinks tracks that especially the
