Along the way around the world, we've picked up songs, albums / radio stations and other tunes that have without a doubt become the soundtrack to our trip! We wanted to mention a few of them - linking them to the places that they remind us of...
Jo Jo - Leave (Right Now)
Juvenile - Slow Motion
KIIS FM (LA) - Ryan Seacrest
The guy who welcomes every flight / passenger onto the island with his guitar and amp. Even our 5am flight!
Sugababes - Round Round I'll never forget the time we strolled into the one and only supermarket in Cook Islands and Sugababes were playing... I mean... Are they that big?!
Men At Work - Down Under Cheers to Stevie G in 2K for reminding me of this amazing track - I heard it at the airport social club and it reminded me of 2k straight away!
The BULA! / Goodbye Song Anybody who's been to the islands of Fiji would have had these songs pumped down them by the islanders, with their ukelales. We hopped over quite a few islands and practically knew all the words by the end! BULA!
We heard loads of Kiwi music whilst there - there are some great acts (especially Hip Hop act SCRIBE).
ZM Radio - including the great Kiwi Caravan Race!
Well the soundtrack to our Christmas was massive!! As follows...
Inaya Day - Nasty Girl
Mylo - Drop The Pressure
Hed Kandi Aus CD
Franz Ferdinand ("It's so much better on holiday!!...")
Destinys Child - Destiny Fulfilled ("Hit Me!")
Kiss R&B CD from Rachel
Michael Gray - Weekender (Thanks Nikki!) Massive in Sydney!
Triple J Radio
Nova FM - Wicked station, check it out online!
Gwen Stefani - Love Angel Music Baby (Especially Rich Girl) - Thanks to Manpower Suzanna for the Heads Up!!
Live Element - Everything to me "I don't wanna do without you girl... oh baby! You mean everything to me"
All those cheesy 80s remixes, like "Owner of a lonely heart", "Waiting for a star to fall and "Everywhere"
Black Eyed Peas - Don't Phunk With My Heart
Athlete - Vehicles and Animals Although Gareth already had this, our fine Perthian housemate John reminded us of the true style of this band! John could imitate the English accent and everything ;-)

Killers - Hot Fuss Ohhh bless you LizeeB for supplying this one to us! We love it!

Hmmm... Not that we bought lots of music but...

Keane - Hopes and Fears Great CD, we're a bit slow with this one - but it is a belter never the less!
Pink Floyd - The Wall Thanks for reminding us Live8!
