To me the song that i will always associate with the QE2 will be "Time to say goodbye" - it was performed on the last transatlantic crossing in one of the evening shows, but it really hit home when we went for dinner on the last evening.All week we had been given wonderful menus with a topic of the beautiful lady - the last one was a coloured photo of her sailing away with the title of "time to say goodbye" - that to me will always be the song which brings back the wonderful times and incredible memories of my time on board.

That's it Twynkle! Great to hear that again-especially to those images-all we needed was a certain greatest ship in the world sneaking in to view!

I thought of that too, Kev!
 - at least QE2 is on the top of the vid - & had hoped that this would justify the 'post'!

What a lovely piece that is - it brings back memories of the wonderful day spent at the Loften Islands last June - on the cruise up to Spitzbergen. If my memory is correct that was the last occasion the QE2 visited the Loften Islands - the sun shone and the mountains and Islands were wonderful - the finest cruise i have ever been on.

Until youtube removes it. I uploaded that some time back for some reason I can't remember.

Nice one Avariel! Ive got the album too-had it ages. I've sometimes thought that Mikes second album Hergest Ridge (1974?) could be used as background music to film of The QE2 sailing serenely along. I recall Hergest Ridge (the name of a real hill in Herefordshire)was once shown on TV with footage of a glider  sweeping along the thermals gently and carefree just like a nice dreamy cruise on QE2.

To Rob!

I'm missing Viva La Vida terribly although not as much as The QE2 :'(


Here's a link - Hope it's allowed?!! :-\

Made in The Netherlands :)

And if we can't have a direct link - maybe this will do instead!

This song works well with the footage of beautiful QE2 at sea.

Personally I've been associating that song with QE2 ever since I saw that video.

Sometime last year, I was randomly lurking in the kitchen looking for food to eat (PIG!) when I heard that song on the radio. I immediately froze and I stood there for some time listening to the song and thinking of QE2.

And Vida La Vida has come to be associated with QE2 as well, for me. Late last year, I was in the car with my sister and her boyfriend and we were on the way home after prawn fishing. The song came on radio. And I became very quiet and started thinking even more about QE2.
