Default help for our playlist

now we have an earlier immigrating date, we are thinking about a NZ playlist. we like to make playlists for special events in our lives as then certain songs will always evoke certain memories.

so.. can you help with suggestions of some good tuneage to emmigrate to? tunes that will remind us of packing up, flying out, beaches, kiwi lifestyle, sunshine etc..

our first ones on the list are Katie Tunstall "other side of the world"

thanks.

I have a Dream -ABBA

The times they are A changing - Bob Dylan
Say hello, wave goodbye - Soft Cell

I think you should listen to some of the lyrics of the songs that have been picked/suggest, not really songs gearing you up for a happy new life in NZ!
