I associate Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, and other big band music from the Captain's receptions. It fit well with the elegant Queens lounge of the Rembrandt.

I associate Reggae and Calypso music from the aft deck pool/buffet/lido bar too. The Norway had an excellent reggae band.

Strangest association is the bells and whistles from the casino slot machines.

Hi - I'm not sure that I understand the question - are certain areas of the world targeted? Are we talking long or short cruises?

The Love Boat theme always seemed to apply to Caribbean itineraries and maybe a few Alaska 'trips'' as I recall. It was never one of my favourite programmes.

You can download the theme from "Love Boat" from www.soundamerica.com .

By the way, the original "Love Boat" episodes tended to be Mexican Riviera cruises out of LA, not Caribbean. For a better look at the same cruise on the same ship, try to get ahold of the old "Columbo" episode where he takes a cruise. It was obviously filmed at sea, with the ship creaking all of the time and people lurching from side to side as they walked down the corridors.

ok i literally have 5 areas to cover:
The P&O fleet
Carribean
South Pacific
World Cruising
Panama Canal

as well as that, i have an introduction and an ending, and all i need is music. I need more classical, peaceful music, remember i am trying to encourage people, not shoo them away with rock music. The target audience is for 30+. I have one for under 30's, but i already have music for that.

ie. i mean the whole P&O fleet, including Princess Cruises and P&O South Pacific Cruises.

How about some jazz, soft sax music like Dave Deasmond or Stan Getz or P.J. Perry.

Celine Dion singing "My Heart will go on" always makes me think of ships; but it might not "go down" too well.

Pungpui, you can get water music and almost anything on 'NAPSTER'
I have just downloaded water music from this source.

For napster, type in the name on a search engine and download the program, its free.

The dowload is mp3 and can be converted on most computers into a format suitable to put on a CD . Get back by E Mail if you have any problems

This topic sent me searching for a piece of music that I had not heard in many years.

The title is "Transatlantic Lullaby". It was recorded in 194? by Geraldo, the bandleader, not the nit on television.

I would like to throw out the challenge worldwide to find it as follows;

Canadian broadcasting Corporation website.
Radio 1
Program 'fresh Air'
Adrians music portion of the program
Aired October 29, 2000
Song 3, Transatlantic Lullaby.

This song reminds me nostalgically of the immediate post world War 2 period at a time when the Queens were regularly transiting between Souhampton and New York with some small competition from TWA's superconnies.

If anybody finds it, please let me know their opinion.

If you want to check it out there is a Spanish song I love called "La Playa" (the beach) by a band called "La Oreja de Van Gogh". It is very beautiful, especially at the start which, as is suggested by the name, is reminiscent of the beach adn waves on the shore.

Paddy.

The song "Porcelain" by Moby is a reeeeaaallly good song which reminds me of standing on the top of a ship and feeling the breeze and looking at the blue sky and smelling the ocean. Its a new song and its alternative/rock. Hope that helps.

On my last three cruises, I heard these songs:

Bob Marley - Stir it Up (this is an all-time favorite "cruise ship song")

Blondie - The Tide is High

UB40 - Red Red Wine

Dollar Wine Dance (don't know the artist, just type in on napster).

Arrow - Hot Hot Hot (Feeling Hot)

Also, one more, that I have heard many times:
"Were going to take you on a party party." (Dont know the name or artist).

Hope this helps, and if you know any more, please let me know!

My favorite song that always seems to bring me to the sea is "Sailing" by Christopher Cross. I Think that's the singers name. He hasn't done much lately.

Hey I also have a recording of the Titanic's actual whistle blowing. The whistle was raised with many other articles from the Titanic, and those whistles were in pretty good shape, so they decided to fix them up again, and for one time only, they pumped high-pressure air through the wistles and for the first time since 1912, a few lucky people in St. Paul, Minnesota, heard the actual voice of the Titanic! What an event it was! I was there and recorded the whistle.

I also have the voice of the Queen Mary recorded. I use these two sounds on my computer, so I hear them throughout the day.

Sorry to be so late in adding my two cents, but I'll suggest a song that's a little different: Leon Russell - "Back to the Island".
