40 Favourite Songs of Famous People

Noel Gallagher managed to make us like him even more with his fantastic selection of tracks on the BBC's legendary Desert Island Discs this weekend. Give it a listen if you get chance, not a bad tune amongst them.

Which is more than can be said for some of these choices.

We all have our favourite songs; perhaps it was a childhood favourite, or a track associated with a particular fond memory. Perhaps it was something that taught you about a different way of life, or a different way of looking at things - either way, it's a deeply personal choice which no one should judge.

That's not going to stop us laughing at Cristiano Ronaldo's selection though.

Enjoy our selection of celebrities' favourite songs; Bob Dylan and The Clash appear twice and David Cameron takes the award for most appropriate selection.
