Knowing Me, Knowing You by ABBA
Jesus Built My Hotrod by Ministry
Granadaland by Wedding Present
Holy Thursday by David Axelrod
In White Rooms by Booka Shade
Born Slippy (Nuxx) by Underworld
Funky Credentials by Kobold
Soul Train by Swansway
First ever single - Waterloo by Abba
First ever album - Sheer Heart Attack by Queen


An ABBA track would definitely feature in my desert island discs too.

It's either KMKY or Eagle. Both great songs, but the backstory behind KMKY pips it for me.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

I love the whole of ABBA's Greatest Hits Vol. 2 1977 which I am looking at now. It is probably one of the first albums I bought if I exclude Charles Asnevor.

The Winner Takes It All is also a stand out song.

What's the backstory behind KMKY Nik?

The lyrics were written by Benny and Bjorn, about how they thought Anni-frid and Agnetha felt about the fact that they were divorcing them. And sung by the women, heartbreakingly.
