In 2011, Desert island Discs asked its listeners to name their 8 pieces of music, classical and rock that they would take to a desert island with them.

They named the top 100 most popular pieces of music, with the top 10 mainly classical music pieces.

They then compiled from the answers the top 100 musical acts of all time. they are as follows:-


The top 2 are the Beatles and Bob Dylan followed by Ludwig Van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Perhaps we could have a BeethovenFest or MozartFest in Moville.

It’s almost Pythonesque to see Franz Scubert just edging Neil Young for 19th spot and Morrisey and The Smiths just edging Tchaikovsky for 22nd spot with Bach just edging the Rolling Stones for 6th slot.
