Not all of our trips have neat, clean sets of songs associated with them. Sometimes it is a single song. Sometimes an older song leaps into the mind. Sometimes (in the case of the around the world trip) it was hearing ABBA. A lot. Everywhere.
Here are some audio snapshots from other trips.
|Cambodia - 1996||You Can Call Me Al|
|Somewhere in Phnom Penh, the lyrics of the last verse - about being in a street in a strange world - leapt into my head. It captured the feeling of being a stranger where all that was going on around me were foreign to me and commonplace to everyone else.|
|Croatia - 1997||Volare||Driving along the Adriatic sea, stunning skies ...and this song. We had the radio on to pass the time and, for reasons unknown, this tune recurred an unnatural number of times.|
|Croatia - 1997||Any song by John Denver||Listening to the radio in Croatia, we also heard John Denver songs frequently. We learned later that he had died and these songs were played in tribute.|
