'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell talks about his favorite albums

UPI News Service, 08/14/2006 

British pop music promoter and "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell chose none of his own products as favorites when he was a guest on a BBC radio show.

Guests on Radio 4's "Desert Island Discs" choose eight records they would take to a desert island. Cowell named none of the more than 100 songs he has promoted, The Independent reported.

The creator of British TV talent competition "The X Factor," made his multimillion-dollar fortune with a long line of pop hits but his personal preferences are classics from the 1950s and 1960s.

"If You're Not the One" by Daniel Bedingfield is "one of the most perfect pop songs of all time," Cowell told the radio show Sunday. He also said Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife" is the best song ever made.

Cowell described "The Guy's in Love With You" by Herb Alpert as sexy and "She" by Charles Aznavour "one of the most beautiful songs of all time."
