Desert Island Discs – Miss Butler

This weekly feature gives us all a little insight into The Abbey staff, and our next Desert Island Disc ‘castaway’ is Miss Butler – Head of English.

Top eight pieces of music:

Turkish Rondo – Mozart: my favourite piece of classical music.
Your Song – The version from Moulin Rouge sung by Ewan McGregor

Cool – Gwen Stefani

To the End – Blur: The first band I ever saw live. There is a beautiful version of this song featuring Francoise Hardie

Into the Groove – Madonna: one of my favourite songs as a girl. Loved dancing to this as a young 10 year old

Don’t Stop Me Now – Queen

Dignity – Deacon Blue: Great anthem by Scottish legends

Head over Feet – Alanis Morissette

Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell
It is like 6 books in one. Beautifully written with clever plots spread through time with little interlinking motifs.

Luxury item:
My pillow. Sleep is everything.
