Love is in the air … sending up more memory-dust

Another blast from the past unearthed in The Great Clean-up.

Finding this shot of my boys having fun on the jousting pole in Paihia sent up clouds of memory-dust; the heat of that day, a game of uphill mini-golf, sticky ice-cream hands, and a soundtrack that comes straight from SingStar (which the three of us seemed to play a lot back in the day).

I could probably have chosen any song from that playlist, but John Paul Young‘s Love is in the Air also reminds me of Baz Luhrmann’s wonderful film Strictly Ballroom, so I love it even more for that reason.

It was also the song that tended to deliver me the highest SingStar score. Just sayin’.
