    Default Music for the Room Suggestions

    25 days till we leave! I'm really getting excited. I need to find our new CD that we will listen to while we are there. I always buy a new CD to take with us that way when we return home and I listen to it, it reminds me of our time at CTI. Any suggestions? We love Kenny Chesney and his island music. Does anyone have suggestions for similar type music.

    Plenty of reggae, old school ska and rocksteady.

    You'll get sick of American Pie, Sweet Caroline and The Piano Man in the Piano bar and everyone else will have Jimmy Buffet!!

    You'll hear the familiar Bob Marley and UB40 tunes so it might be a good idea to add some of the less familiar ones.

    Whatever you need to get in the mood but as they say when in Rome.

    Coloradojuli:

    The new CTI do not have CD players in the rooms, only Ipod docking stations.

    What about Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffett, or Bob Marley?

    We requested a CD player from our housekeeper and she got us one in 10 minutes. You will hear Bob Marley until it's running out of your ears. To the staff, it's like K-Mart radio. Be adventurous, get some Third World, Peter Tosh, Beenie Man or Vybe Kartel. Kenny Chesney? Oy !!!!

    You will need CD's for the Island. They eventually allowed the staff to bring over a working CD player las week, but couldn't manage an iPod dock

    Caribbeanlovers ~ My favorite Kenny Chesney island music is "Lucky Old Sun", "Be as You Are: Songs From An Old Blue Chair" is also a good one. The "Lucky Old Sun" CD comes with a bonus CD that has a few live songs on it and they are also really good.

    Default take & leave

    We burned some CDs for our trip - lots of Temps, Barry White, Santana, Al Green - lots of old school make out stuff (which worked great) and then left the Cds with staff as we went through the week. I know there is a beach bar playing lots of Temptations tunes! The crew working really liked it. They dig many kinds of music, it's not all island music. No effort, almost no cost, made a huge impression on the wonderful staff working to make our trip remarkable. Try it.

    Another suggestion...Shyam Moses - Expressions. Shyam played an acoustic set at the bonfire on Thursday night during our last visit to Couples Negril. Of course I picked up a copy of his CD and when I listen to it, it definitely takes me bak to Couples. What a memory...
