"Jamaica Farewell", written by Lord Burgess and sung most memorably by Harry Belafonte.

"Down the way where the nights are gay

And the sun shines daily on the mountain top,

I took a trip on a sailing ship

And when I reached Jamaica I made a stop..."

Oh, that was me. I had a hard time with it, too. For some reason, the replies don't get added to the previous comment, but gets added as its own comment. You have to reference the previous comment somehow, so it doesn't get lost. After you click the reply button, you can click the "Quote" button to copy the previous comment into your reply. Or you can just cut-&-paste what you want to refer to into your reply.     I had a few of Nillson's albums. Nillson Shmillson, Son Of Shmillson, The Point (with Me & My Arrow).  Good stuff.

 

 

Yes the setup is kind of confusing. Thanks for your help!

If we want to get into the REALLY old oldies, how about "Come, Josephine, in My Flying Machine" and "In My Merry Oldsmobile"? (Ah, the good old days of "Sing Along with Mitch"...) By the way, "Merry Oldsmobile" got an update when the Olds 442 first came out.

"On the Way to Cape May" - recorded by Al Alberts, is a great song about traveling to the New Jersey shore. Still very popular in PA and NJ.
