Michael Eavis has revealed that his favourite song of all time is Elvis Presley‘s “How Great Thou Art”.
Appearing on BBC Radio 4‘s Desert Island Discs, the Glastonbury organiser explained that Presley‘s 1967 recording of the hymn would be the one song he’d take with him to a desert island.
The song was the title track of the singer’s second gospel album.
Eavis also picked Bob Dylan‘s “I Threw It All Away”, The Smiths‘ “Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before”, T-Rex‘s “Children Of The Revolution” and The Grateful Dead‘s “Uncle John’s Band”.
The farmer also elected to take Peter Ackroyd‘s biography of William Blake and a harmonica with him to a desert island.
