Default 60's & 70's Cruise Theme Nights !!!!

as we are getting ready for our Capital Jazz Cruise in October, every night is a theme night..One night is 70's Funk night (Funk legend George Duke is the featured performer) and we have our outfits picked out (from the movie Under-Cover Brother ) complete with our theme music (from the movie) that will be played at the contest for best theme couples (yes I actually still have my platform shoes with the see thru golf fish heels)

It made me think that in the 70's every tv show had it's own theme song (i.e. Hawaii 5-0, Cannon, Mannix, Sanford and Son) that the minute you heard it you would think of the actor...the slang term is " travel music"

What would be your theme music if you were on the cruise..it could be from any era and any theme... when you think of our fellow cruisemates that you may or may not have met, what theme song would you associate them with .....I already know a certain young lady from up north her theme 'traveling music" would be "Staying Alive" by the BeeGees..when I think of Kuki I think of the theme song from the cartoon show Dudley DooRight..when I think of Paul I think of Theme From The Pink Panther etc.

The theme music choices for me would be anything by Jefferson Airplane or CSN .The only CM person that I have met in person would want a Neil Diamond theme cruise .

Kat..Shaft is a favorite theme night topic and there are usually 1/2 dozen Issac Hayes look-a-like (also Super Fly)..I chose UnderCover Brother because it's one of my favorite movies/soundtracks, plus I already have the outfit (except the days of my Afro haircut are long past) :: and will have 3 women with me

Kat..when I think of you, your theme song would be "She's A Bad Mama Jama" ::

I like to be a Bad Mamma Jama I was hoping for Brick house. 26-34-26 isn't quite right, but I could dream.

For CQ I'm thinking shakira hips don't lie. Because she is like salsa dancing. But what is the right song for Dave the wave?

Wow, that is great, I couldn't think of a better one. It isn't james bond, but I'll actually like the song much better that say "Live & let Die".

I like Henry Mancini's use of the tritone in the melody. One a few songs that use it. Some of the West Side Story songs also do (Leonard Bernstein, can't beat him)

The theme song I would pick would be ( Till there was you ).

I would dedicate it to my wife (Rosanna), because life took on a different meaning when I met her. We have had a great life together and started to cruise on our honeymoon. We have traveled a lot since we have been married and I think that this song says it all.

Good to know that while I have been away, you guys are still thinking of me!

First post in a while. I have been just fine and Facebooking too much. Thought I would make an appearance here. I am back in cruise mode! 8 week countdown. 8) Started tanning and training seriously yesterday.

Miami Vice is awesome and I still have white liinen sports coat from the 80's.

There is only one "Dave the Wave" but there have been many imposters. I don't think I was on a music board though. Unless it was a Meatloaf fan club.
