From the moment that she first started to make a name for herself in the early eighties I was a fan of Alison Moyet. Her voice and the way she can deliver a song was enough, but there was something else. We should never expect anything from performers than that which they are paid to do and to ask for more is frequently the road to an unjustified disillusionment. None the less, I always felt that offstage Alison Moyet was probably an interesting, warm but complex person and her appearance on Desert Island Discs was confirmation of this. Nice selection of music too.
