Actually managed to post this on time today.

Full list is here

Day 06 - A Song That Reminds You Of Somewhere

Dick Van Dyle / Sally Ann Howes - "Doll on a Music Box" - from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

This might seem rather an odd choice. I first watched this film (after owning it on video for several years) when I was 14, a couple of days before going to Gran Canaria with my mum. It was an absolutely brilliant holiday, arguably one of the best I've ever had, and thanks to re-watching this film several times before going (I used to re-watch stuff endlessly, a habit which continued into TV fandoms many years later) I was cursed with having most of the songs stuck in my head. For ages afterwards I would always associate the CCBB soundtrack with the holiday in Gran Canaria, and for some reason this song in particular is the only I remember most vividly. (Shipper instinct, probably. :D)

So that's that. :)

I have this on DVD actually. I may have to do a re-watch soon...

In other news, we went to see Inception today and it was awesome. Quite brain-manglingly plot-heavy but most enjoyable. I would review more but I'm far too tired. I did like the (very slight) nod to 2001: Space Odyssey, though I fear after finally watching that film I'm seeing it everywhere for evermore...
