    Songs and places!

    Reading on another thread about the song 'For those in peril on the sea' I remembered that was the one that was sung every morning in assembly at school.... even though it was 70 miles to the nearest coast, maybe the principal was a seafaring man? Always remember' Hey macarena.' playing as we left Miami on our first cruise. … 'Hot,hot,hot' playing on a reggae bus in Barbados. . 'We've gotta get out of this place' landing at Gatwick after a 6 hour flight from The Gambia.... (I hate flying) No doubt will think of many more Over to you!

    Angels, the Robbie Williams song, sung to me, on my birthday, by the wonderful Jonathan Dearden, on Seabourn Odyssey, the day before we reached Ft Lauderdale.

        Flying over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter 8 years ago the pilot played “ Fly into the Danger Zone” from Top Gun.

        Take care, Helen

          Who on board can fail to remember the 3 Queens event in Liverpool when the 3 Cunard ships sailed on the Mersey together. Amazing. We were on QM2 and as we left Liverpool flanked by the other 2 ships Beatles music was playing to packed decks.

            I remember the first time I flew to Spain in 1977 all the passengers started singing viva Espana when the plane landed. 🙈😂😂😂

              Sat in the jacuzzi on Indy as the pool band playing “ sitting on the dock of the bay” as we left Funchal. First cruise and the song always reminds me of it.

                The first time I visited Majorca in the late 1980s was just after Agadoo was released and it was playing in every bar. I think if it every time I visit.

                My cruising song memory was a sail away party on one of the Thomson ships with a brilliant female singer who couldn’t pronounce the letter v. “I’m your Venus” was not the best choice for her! It cam out as I’m your wenus.

                  Helen we must have had the same pilot and/or company, As he (Lee) did just the same and also told us to lift our feet as we were going over a massive ridge and then a few hundredfeet drop below us!!
                  And yes, We DID lift our feet. Thrilling. Jan.

                    Best sailing song, Sailing by Rod Stewart of course.!! But we also love Time To Say Goodbye.
                    Celebrity played it on sailout from Venice, But MSC played it on every sail away in the UAE, Didn't have the same feel as Venice is so much more pretty than Dubai etc.. Jan.

                        I was going to mention 'Time to Say Goodbye' sailing out of Venice on Celebrity. I remember looking down at the buildings and watching them disappear into the distance. Magical!

                          Was it Serenity Tours by any chance? They had their own private bluff in the canyon where we had a picnic lunch. Very civilised!

                          Take care, Helen🚁

                            YES!, He took us down to the Colorado River for a dawn breakfast which to be honest was under-whelming,(Breakfast,Not the canyon or River!) It consisted of a pop tart kind of bar,Fresh OJ, And a little platter of fresh fruit.
                            However the pilot was a natural comedian and kept us entertained as well as giving some great info of the plants and fauna around us.
                            We then got took to an Indian Resevation..Rip off, But it all made for a totally different excursion that we still have on Video,(And really need to get changed over to DVD.!! Jan.

                              Ours is on DVD but they managed to catch me blowing my nose! Not the most elegant of shots I have to say. We didn’t do the Indian reservation at all. It was out to the canyon via Hoover Dam and then lunch and back. Hubby had a beer with his lunch and I had a small bottle of fizz. I would love to do it again just to see it without trying to take a million photos.

                              Take care, Helen🏜
