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.

Enya Book of Days

Celine Dion Immortality

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
