This week, the stars of Queen’s Theatre’s Educating Rita Danielle Flett and Ruairi Conaghan pick their all-time favourite tunes

Danielle’s picks:

Crazy in Love - Beyonce ft Jay Z

Great in a club with your friends on the dance floor.

Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson

My parents introduced me to MJ at a very young age. Most of his music videos were like short films and I was obsessed with his dance moves.

Stronger Than Me - Amy Winehouse

She wrote most of her songs and her lyrics are so truthful.

Bet That You Look Good on the Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys

Reminds me of being at college and when I first passed my driving test.

At Last - Etta James

I just love Etta’s voice and the lyrics are beautiful.

Ruairi’s picks:

A Town Called Malice - The Jam

One of the great records of the eighties and a biting piece of urban poetry.

We Will - Gilbert O’Sullivan

A lovely song about parenting which manages to make the line “I bagsy being in goal” moving.

I Just Can’t Get Enough - Depeche Mode

A brilliant dance track from Basildon’s finest.

Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue - Crystal Gale

Another searing piece of love poetry from a most beguiling woman.

Got This Feeling - Justin Timberlake

Proof that pop records now can be as good as they ever were and one that myself and my 10-year-old son Se go crazy for.
