Fashion designer Stella McCartney has chosen her dad’s song Blackbird as one of her records for Desert Island Discs.She said she found it “incredible how contemporary the song feels” and was “proud” of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney for writing it. Stella told the BBC Radio 4 show that music had been “the driving force in every moment of our childhood”. For her book choice, she also chose Sir Paul’s memoir Japanese Jailbird, written by him but never released.The manuscript – detailing what happened in 1980 when the star spent nine days in a Japanese jail for a drugs offence – has been locked away for decades with the only copies given to his children, something that Stella said she finds “very beautiful”. She went on: “I just think it makes me remember family and it would make me also remember freedom.”The 45-year-old also praised the late David Bowie after choosing his song Starman as one of her tracks.”What an amazing talent and again so modern, so relevant and so individual. What an incredible, individual voice he had,” she said.
