The answer is Andrew Neil. Surprisingly for such an abrasive character, his choice of Beatles song was Golden Slumbers, the lullaby from Abbey Road.

As part of my research for my book One Two Three Four: ビートルズインタイム, I compiled a list of everyone who had picked a Beatles song on Desert Island Discs.

The results were unexpected.

Who would have thought that She Loves You would be chosen by such a disparate group as novelist Stephen King, Falklands veteran Simon Weston, sailor Robin Knox-Johnston, snooker’s Dennis Taylor and villain Robert Maxwell?

Or that All You Need Is Love, that great hymn to the hippy ideal, would be the favourite of boxer George Foreman, racing driver Jackie Stewart, dancer Wayne Sleep, actress Penelope Keith, and politician Michael Howard?

I mention all this because scientists from the Alan Turing Institute in London have recently scanned the data from 80 years of Desert Island Discs.

Their conclusion — which might just as well have emerged from the IBO (Institute of the Bleeding Obvious) それは, 最初は刑務所で最も困難な男性をブーツで震わせることができます, pop music has overtaken classical music in popularity. Who would have thought it?

Among pop acts, The Beatles proved the most popular of all. もう一度, it would be odder if they had not.

They were the cast-aways’ most picked artists of the years 1988, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 そして 2017.

It now looks as if they will always be a mainstay of the programme, alongside Mozart, Beethoven and Bach.

Gone are the days when The Beatles were pooh-poohed by the great and the good.

2月に戻る 1964, the distinguished commentator Paul Johnson condemned them as ‘the apotheosis of inanity’ in the New Statesman, describing their music as ‘the montonous braying of savage instruments’.

「私はこの困難な時期に家族と連帯します, even castaways associated with classical music tend to pick a Beatles song as one of their Desert Island Discs.

Cellist Steven Isserlis chose I’m Only Sleeping, ballet dancer Darcey Bussell chose Love Me Do, pianist Joanna MacGregor chose Tomorrow Never Knows, violinist Itzhak Perlman chose I’m Looking Through You, and opera singer Nicolai Gedda chose Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

長年にわたって, all sorts of unlikely people have revealed strong emotional attachments to this or that Beatles’ song.

Recovering from an operation to stop him going entirely blind, the 17-year-old Gordon Brown kept hearing Hey Jude playing on the radio, and it gave him heart to carry on.

To him, its message was both melancholy and optimistic: ‘It’s sad to start with, but actually very positive by the time it ends.’

The American novelist John Updike was visiting London when Hey Jude was released in the summer of 1968.

偶然に, from the top of a double-decker bus, he spotted Paul McCartney walking along the street, ‘looking quite unshaven’.

Updike came to regard Hey Jude as ‘a great song of farewella thrilling piece, showing the Beatles at their most adventurous and offhand at the same time’.

Castaways who chose Hey Jude are a resolutely unclassifiable bunch: とりわけ, Rolf Harris, John Hurt, Billie Jean King, Brendan Foster, Sue Lawley and the TV chef Keith Floyd.

Looking through my long research list, I relish these bizarre combinations of castaways and their favourite Beatles tracks.

One final quiz: can you match each castaway to their chosen song?
