Description

Charli XCX throws her VIP contacts book open and steps into the interviewer’s chair. In this one-on-one weekly format, she asks what their favourite song is for a particular situation. Best song to fall in love to? For Christine of Christine and the Queens, it’s Spring 1 by Max Richter: a reimagining of Vivaldi’s Rites of Spring. Best party peak? Usher’s Yeah. Funeral song? Always Look On The Bright Side of Life. This is Desert Island Discs for situations other than being stuck on a desert island.
