Sandie Shaw-BBC Radio 4 Desert Island Discs 26 Dec 10

Kirsty Young's castaway is the singer Sandie Shaw.

With her melodic, velvety voice, bare feet and Sassoon bob she was the epitome of everything that was swinging about the '60s.

She was just 17 when she first topped the charts with Always Something There to Remind Me and went on to become Britain's first Eurovision winner with Puppet on a String. She loathed the song at the time, but has recently come to terms with it after recording a new version which is, she says, rather forlorn.

Along with the highs have been terrible lows - years that she calls her dark ages, when, without money or creative freedom, she felt hopeless. It was Buddhism that turned her fortunes around and became central to her life. Now, she says, she cannot believe the journey life has taken her on and she is preparing for a final flourish as a performer.
