I hereby dedicate U2's Angel of Harlem the Cruise Freek Forums Cunard Christmas unofficial song:

It was a cold and wet December day
When we touched the ground at JFK
Snow was melting on the ground
On BLS I heard the sound
Of an angel

New York, like a Christmas tree
Tonight this city belongs to me
Angel

Soul love
This love won't let me go
So long
Angel of Harlem

Birdland on fifty-three
The street sounds like a symphony
We got John Coltrane and a love supreme
Miles, and she's got to be an angel

Lady Day got diamond eyes
She sees the truth behind the lies
Angel

Soul love
This love won't let me go
So long
Angel of Harlem
Angel of Harlem

She says it's heart
Heart and soul...
Yeah, yeah...(yeah)
Yeah, yeah...(right now)

Blue light on the avenue
God knows they got to you
An empty glass, the lady sings
Eyes swollen like a bee sting
Blinded you lost your way
Through the side streets and the alleyway
Like a star exploding in the night
Falling to the city in broad daylight
An angel in Devil's shoes
Salvation in the blues
You never looked like an angel
Yeah, yeah
Angel of Harlem

That is one of my favorite songs! In fact, the morning of the QE2's final crossing I got up early for my fitness walk and headed for pier 90 at about 6am.... this was one of the songs I had loaded onto my iPhone. I had it set on shuffle and it played Angel of Harlem first, then when I turned the corner onto 12th Ave and first saw QE2 it started playing Your Wildest Dreams by the Moody Blues.

Some things just stay in your mind....

You gotta love U2! (even if you aren't Irish!) Razz

I'm a U2 fan as well. I became one when they decided to film a music video on a liquor store rooftop in L.A. back in 1987. We happened to be in L.A. that day, and witnessed the event. The song was "Where the Streets Have No Name". Way cool.

I'm also a big Jimmy Buffett fan...
In January 1996 Jimmy landed his airplane nicknamed "Hemisphere Dancer" in the waters off Jamaica, and was shot at by Jamaican police who believed the craft to be smuggling marijuana. The aircraft sustained minimal damage. On board the plane with Buffett were U2's Bono, and Island Records producer Chris Blackwell. The Jamaican government acknowledged the mistake and apologized to Buffett who penned the song "Jamaica Mistaica" for his Banana Wind album based on the experience.

Talk about lucky! You ever see the guns they carry in Jamaica!
