Delighted to see the Floyd's Comfortaby Numb at number 5 in a list of 'the people's choice' of best ever Desert Island Discs tracks!

I'm sure Roger being a guest on the programme at the time the poll was open and having recently played the UK gave Floyd a boost in votes, but I am surprised at the choice of track. I would've thought 'SOYCD' would've been more popular or something from 'DSOTM'.

It was also mentioned that 'Wish You Were Here' came in the top 15.

I voted for 'Echoes'.
