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!

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

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.

This sounds really silly but i thought about this. What song would you describe QE2's life. It could be any song as long as it fits in with QE2s career, life and retirement. It could also describe your love for her.

I have two here.

Personally, I associate that song with the QE2.

My friend introduced it to me in early December 2007, just before the cruise voyage. And I spent much of the trip listening to it.

Here is another one from me. Its John Farnham's Your The Voice. It reminds me a lot of QE2 i don't know why but it does.

I found this tribute video made about QE2.

Perfect choice of music I must say. ;D

 :'(

the song I think (and it brings a tear to my eye) is "You're no awa tae bide awa"  The song that was played when she sailed away from Greenock on her 40th birthday.  I have it on video and every time I watch it I feel the same.

Here's a good one from Shaun!


Perfect song title, and substitute the war ship for QE2 and use a dab of imagination...

Cher!  "If I could turn back time" - like I said, a touch of imagination required for this one!!

The very combination of the title... and the singer... and the ship... makes me grin... and smile...  ;)

I always wished Cher would do that same thing on QE2. That would be so amazing.

Agreed ;D

Stevie Wonder "I just called to say I love" will always remind me of my first trip on QE2 in 1985, sitting one night in the club lido as the ship rolled perfectly in time to the music. Fantastic. ;D
