Saturday Night Retro

21 months ago I set sail on my longest cruise vacation ever – a two-week Mediterranean / TransAtlantic Carnival cruise from Rome Italy to Miami Florida. The cruise embarked on the central west coast of Italy at the port of Civitavecchia (west of Rome). It then proceeded up the coast to the northwestern port of Livorno (west of Florence y Pisa).

Hailing from Livorno Italy here’s famed Italian deejay Mario Piu with his 1999 / 2000 European techno smash entitled “Communication (Somebody Answer The Phone)”. Its unique riff is actually based on the interference onto electronic equipment that’s caused by ringing cell phones nearby.

I tend to think that one of the most annoying sounds in the entire world is a ringing cell phone. I embark on my next Carnival cruise in just 44 days. I can’t wait to get away from everyone else’s cell phone !
