The theme for #beachthursday today and the #beachchat later on Twitter (Don`t forget to join from 2.30 – 3.30 pm EDT!) is BEACH MUSIC.
So, which music makes you want to jump on a plane and have yourself a beach vacation? I always think a bit of Reggae, Merengue or Salsa brings that ‘feeling good’ vibe to life as well as memories from past vacations. Reggae reminds me of a cruise I made in the Caribbean whereas Merengue and Salsa brings back lovely memories from trips to the Dominican Republic.
Or hearing Bula Maleya, the Fijian welcome song, reminds me of the trip I made out there for my 30th birthday and how friendly the people were.
Besides music bringing back memories, other songs can also be inspiring. I came across this video of Aloha Oe with images of Hawaiian beaches. As I`ve never been to Hawaii this definitely makes me want to visit.
And of course there are the Beach Boys, how can you not want to visit Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahama?
A while ago I asked on Facebook what`s on everyone`s playlist for when you`re at the beach, you can find the answers to that here. I hope tonight at #BeachChat I`ll be able to add a few more as I love having good music at the beach.
