Need some music to start your weekend off? We’re compiling Weston-super-Mare’s favourite songs by asking business people, entertainers, and musicians which ones they would pick if they were stuck on Flat Holm Island with only 10 tunes for company. This week is Nutty Noah’s turn.

The entertainer made his name on Britain’s Got Talent and now regularly performs at the Theatre Tropicana and Puxton Park. He also incorporates music in his shows. He said: “This is a lot harder than it seems. But here are 10 songs which mean something to me.”

Herb Alpert – Tijuana Taxi.

Music can be silly and this is my favourite example.

Weird Al – That Boy Could Dance.

Weird Al was the first artist I was introduced to that performed novelty songs, something I really love.

Katzenjammer – A Bar In Amsterdam.

These girls are amazing and make a lot of noise.

Stevie Wonder – Superstition.

Billy Joel – Piano Man.

Elton John – I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues.

Spice Girls – Wannabe.

We used this as our wedding song.

Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah.

I love music which gives you goosebumps and any version of this song does it for me.

Street Life – Street Life.

(Local band back in the 90s) I was lucky enough to see these guys every Sunday live at the Imperial, and was also lucky enough to play keyboards for one song once and it changed my life.

Bach – Violin Concerto in D Minor.

Beautiful, just beautiful.
