Call me thorough, but in planning our trip in 5 weeks I'm working on a mnemonic device to enhance the London/England experience...I'm downloading songs to burn to a "Travel CD"....we'll play it in the car on all our jaunts through the countryside...each kid gets to pick two of their favorite songs (at the present time...they're really fickle)...so when they hear those songs again in the future hopefully it will bring back easy recall of our ventures over there....
Son's songs "Dueling Banjos" and "Dixie"
Daughter's songs Clay Walker "Jesus was a Country Boy" and "Old Man River"
Daughter's songs Louis Armstrongs "What a Wonderful World" and Carrie Underwood "Jesus take the Wheel"
Now 3 months ago their songs would have been "Louie Louie", "Another One Bites the Dust" and Josh Groban's greatest hits...don't know how they morphed into this month's selections...my husband and I both get choices...he's still working on his and mine are a fave of Andrea Bocelli and Danny Boy..
so now we need some input of about 4-5 songs that are unmistakably British! It can be the national anthem (don't know the name of it), a Beatles song, an old Irish folk song, something they might have the chance of hearing again in the future and would be a fun song to play on road trips, meaning easy to sing to or good melody.....
Everytime I travel I plan a CD or tape and it's amazing how when the song comes on you can have instant visual memories of where you were when it played...hoping to make this trip as memorable as possible. Thanks for any help with our CD!!!!
