Even if ABBA isn't your favourite
ABBA Night in the Yacht Club took some beating.....

Try this!

It's for you QE2 - and all Dancing Queens, all over the world!

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 majestic 15-16 minute tune always brings me back to QE2, to my first voyage on her, where I heard it being played in the center of The Lido off a CD player sitting on a table. All this as I waltzed around the ship, getting to know her. It also sounds like the perfect tune you would expect to have heard from the Bridge Cam channel in your stateroom.


As someone else also pointed out, Coldplay's Viva la Vida also makes me think of her, probably due to a YouTube video that was produced of her departure from So'ton last November.  The song gives me chills from time to time whenever I catch it.

"I am Sailing" was played aboard during my first ever QE2 departure.

Heart did sail on the QE2.  I keep thinking whether they did perform that song onboard her.

I  thought that song perfectly fit the day.  I had it loaded on my iPod for the trip too.  Everytime I hear it, it takes me right back.  Using the shuffle feature on the iPod can surely catch you off guard.  :'(

I especially like this version of "Time to Say Goodbye", performed by Chris Botti and the Boston Pops.  I took the CD version of this out of the Library last weekend and when this song came on, it really affected me.  Perhaps it is because I used to play trumpet, but never that good, but the trumpet is haunting here. 

Now, also on this same CD, is another song that instantly reminds me of QE2, "Under my Skin" originally by Frank Sinatra, but this version is especially nice.  I could have written this after my first time onboard and it brings back visions of wearing that tux on those magical nights on QE2.

This is a great song that reminds me of QE2. I cant find the original version without the female duet part.

But its Josh Groban singing OCEANO. Its best heard off a CD.

I originally heard this attached to a video about the Norway, a 60s liner that has been scrapped.


Im free...

Caledonia by Dougie McLean.

I put some video of QE2 on the Clyde during her 2007 birthday round UK - felt right at the time and given what happened a year later - even more so!!

Can we post video to this forum? I've got it down to a reasonable file size!

You don't have to be mad to post on here, but it helps!
How about this for a bizarre song/ tune with aQE2 conection
When QE2 left the UK for the last time Cold Play’s Viva la Vida was the backing music and for many QE2 fans it brings a tear to the eye.
How strange that the only time I saw these buskers in Sydney they were playing that tune.
It mad but fun.

Well, it is the 'silly season'!

When QE2 left the UK the BBC used Cold Play Viva la Vida as the background music as she sailed away.
Anyone who heard it cannot be moved by it being played.
When I was wandering back to my hotel in Sydney a crazy group were busking and of all the tunes they were playing was Viva la Vida.
The QE2 is still on Google maps as you know in Sydney so it was ironic to hear the tune being played there.


Prepare for tears I've found the original BBC clip

I always have this BBC tribute to her on the top of the most watched clip of her, it's just magical and heart rendering.

The lyrics really do remind me of QE2 in how she has a heart and soul.
