'Quiet man' IDS wigs out to Springsteen
He may not seem the type to let his hair down. But Iain Duncan Smith will reveal an unexpected rebellious streak today by choosing a Bruce Springsteen song as one of his Desert Island Discs.
The self-proclaimed "quiet man" of politics will reveal a louder side with a track by a singer long identified with blue-collar workers. The BBC was tight-lipped about precisely which Springsteen song it was – saying only that it was from his latest album.
As befits a champion of family values, Mr Duncan Smith pays tribute to his mother, a former ballet dancer, with Swan Lake. And he also includes a single by an obscure Euro-pop act, Suzi Lyon – his sister, Susan. The most extensive mention, however, is reserved for his father, who we learn was once propositioned by Marilyn Monroe.
