Travel to You - The South Carolina Mix

When I arrived, over an hour late, at the Charleston, South Carolina airport last weekend (a foreshadow of things to come) I found Ambassador waiting for me with open arms. We hugged, giggled and promptly walked the four steps to the car rental desk (the airport was this big - put your thumb 1/2 an inch from your first finger).

We found our car and, much to our glee, discovered it had a sun roof.

Which came in handy as we drove over the Cooper River bridge, taking photos of the span while blaring Ambassador's "Travel to You" mix of songs - one of my myriad of gifts from him from that weekend.

  • Chain Reaction - Steps
  • Don't Leave Me This Way - The Communards
  • Groove is in the Heart - Dee-lite
  • History Repeating - Shirley Bassey and Propellerhead
  • It's a Sin - Pet Shop Boys
  • Knock on Wood - Amii Stewart
  • A Little Respect - Erasure
  • Never Can Say Goodbye - The Communards
  • Pride (In the Name of Love) - The Groove Factory
  • Waterfalls (Workout Mix) - TLC
  • What's on Your Mind (Pure Energy) - Information Society
  • Allegra's Aria - Soprano Yanick Alexandre
  • It's Oh So Quiet - Bjork
  • Miss Chatelaine - k.d. lang
  • Everlasting Love - Gloria Estefan
  • Whispering Your Name - Alison Moyet

  • And the song I associate with these photos is this fabulous rendition of Don't Leave Me This Way by the Communards. You have not lived until you've sung this loudly in a car with Ambassador.

    Any song that you have known forever and now have a fresh memory with it? Do share.

    Sorry for the lack of Linky Love options. Just put a link to your post in the comments and I'll make a nice little list.

    Fabulous mix~! And I loved the Communards clip.

    I've heard some very interesting versions of Billie Jean in the last few days, not surprisingly. I'm sort of awed how differently it can be presented, though.
