Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
I remember getting a summer job in the south of France on a campsite when I was 15.

It was a very formative soundtrack and I’ve always been into film soundtracks since.

I’ve probably bought this album more times than any other – I’ve bought it over a dozen times, as I’ve worn previous ones out. This never disappoints, and always puts me into a reverie. Stunning production…
