  1. […] Ross from Ross v Ross […]

  2. Dentist song from Little Shop is such a great pick!

  3. Hey looks like you also have a Bond song. I quite like Goldeneye but not an ‘essential’ one.

  4. Yeah, love the Goldeneye song on this list. Sadly I don’t know any others save for Little Shop…but that’s a gooood one. Nice call there ROss:)

  5. 1. I really need to see Scott Pilgrim again and/or give a listen to this Metric song – half the people used it, and I’m not familiar with it. I don’t know how this happened…

    2. I think you’ve finally sealed the deal and served as the final push I needed to buying an ELO greatest hits disc. Showdown is great.

    3. You can never – ever – go wrong with Wicket Pickett. Sweet choice.

  6. Wow, losing track of which Desert Islands I have visited or not ahah.

    @ Fletch: Simply click on the link to the YouTube for the metric song. It has the entire scene from the movie!

  7. Yeah Fletch, click the link!
    Seriously thou, thanks for dropping by, glad I’ve pushed you into ELO territory. If I lived in your country id just lend you my greatest hits.. All you need really are Showdown, Living Thing, Sweetalkin Woman, Calling America, Don’t Bring Me Down, Hold On Tight and uh, a few others

  8. C’mon, guys – give me a little credit. Was at work and didn’t have time to listen to all of the songs I wanted to listen to. But now that I’m home…

    Yeah, thankfully, the ELO greatest hits CD appears to have everything I could possibly need and then some. 20 tracks, yo.

  9. dont worry Fletch, only teasing. I never click on anybody’s links either. Do you have any idea how F***IN busy I am, Hans???!!!!

  10. I like the Donovan choices a lot. And the track New York Groove – Ace Frehley is completely new to me, so thanks for sharing ( :

  11. cheers Chris. it was a bit off top of my head as i was late to Castor’ party, but hard to beat Donovan for a bit of atmosphere. That New York Groove song is so great. Guide To Recognising Your Saints wasnt a bad film, but that song elevated it. great song.
