懐かしい。着陸態勢に入ると必ず流れはじめる。揺れながら台風の中を 左右に前後に 機内の照明が暗くなって 眼下に 台湾や香港 バンコク マニラ ジャカルタの夜景がチラチラ 皆さん 気分が悪くなってきたわ。とつぶやきながら😁😁 テーマソングは流れてました

Peace and love for all... Barry meant it that way... so I think... but who am I? So Barry, love and peace for all!!!!

This is really interesting, because I never knew that Cathay used this music for their ads. I only heard it played during take off in the mid 80s. Do you know when they stopped using it in the planes? Thanks for a great look at the old ads, I've never seen them before.

Love's Themeは欽ちゃんのどこまでやるののクイズの全問正解パーフェクト賞の紹介のBGMでもありました。キャセイが先だったのかテレ朝が先だったのか…。トライスターに乗った時は衝撃でしたね。作りが違い過ぎて。いつもボーイングやエアバス機ばかりだったので。今は似たような機種ばかりで、個性のある機体が少なくなってしまいました。

CX was just the best in show in this era. Sensational times out of Kai Tak...loved flying HKG-BAH-LGW on a dash 300 747. So comfortable with incredible service. Unbeatable comfort.

Uh, Mr. Tatsuro Yamashita is by his radio program (JFN) sunday song book. It went on air with a comment as "the song which is best even if it was heard now, the best arrangement and the best performance".

Whoever chose this piece of music for Cathay back in the 70s/80s was a genius. To this day, I still haven't heard anything more perfect for an airline ad or, indeed, for the whole experience of flying. And Barry White was truly a spectacular talent. Never has love sounded so romantic, uplifting, joyous and hopeful. Thank you for uploading.

This is so nice; it just reminds me of my childhood when my parents took me on a Cathay Pacific. They used to play this song onboard :) Thanks for the memories.

Nice vid take50ky0j. Have always loved this Barry White classic, and your vid brings back old memories. When I was a Flight Attendant. Way back in the day. 1977. TY for posting. You made me smile.

Thank you for your wonderful message & you made me smile too :))

Wonder what those two flight attendants are doing today?
john fells (10 months ago)
Cathay could play this as their theme song now and it would still be a big hit for the airline as it was when it first came out all those years ago.
Liau Chung Ren (2 months ago)
john fells You absolutely hit the point brother. YES, YOU ARE RIGHT. I have suggested to CX many years ago that they should revive Love's Theme for their ad-campaign and Corporation's Theme Song. They didn't take my advice seriously which is too bad.
francis chow (10 months ago)
Classic! Makes Cathy Pacific is the first choice of supreme flying and service. I think they have the best trained pilot in any flying team.

いや、これは飽くまでも、楽曲で私が感じたイメージを、YouTube動画に上がっていた映像を使って、都合(曲想)に合致するよう再編集したものです。 富士山は、動画ではなく、Webに在った画像を挟んで動かしただだけですが、巧く繋がって見えた様でしたら、私の思いが伝わったので、良かったです。(時代と画質は違和感無い様に、気を遣って作ったつもりですw)

There really was a time when flying was like this. And, Cathay had absolutely THE most gorgeous flight attendants --though Singapore Airlines is a very close 2nd.-----Truly, a long, long time ago. ----------------------------Wolfsky9

I really find that tune inspiring. The series of commercials made for Cathay Pacific utilising it must surely be the finest airline commercials every made. They are far, far superior to any other I know of. Thank you for posting them.
Scarlet Bubu (2 years ago)
was born a year after this beautiful and magnificent masterpiece was released. heard this music at a bakery shop, but didn't know the title. until I watched Despicable me 2. went to IMDB.com and identified the song. a truly immortal masterpiece created by a legendary maestro. brings back some difficult memories of the early years when I was at Changi airport to only watch other people fly. Flying in those days was considered a huge luxury. MUSIC LIKE THIS LASTS FOREVER IN HEAVEN, ON EARTH AND IN ETERNITY.
solopolo (2 years ago)
Such a happy tune, so uplifting! Perfect match for an airline commercial, Cathay hit the jackpot on this one.
melle gerda (1 year ago)
This song was also the inflight background music. I'm not making this up. The notes from the violins blends so well with the engine sounds of the 747-200. That makes the whole flying experience to some degree 'magical'.

what a perfect songs for an airline commercial

I actually miss those seats in vivid jade colour knitted in patterns. I was in economy class in the 80's, seats weren't actually wide but I surely miss them.

jbdoggy (2 years ago)
The advertisement creators definitely made a very good choice in picking this piece. I dunno abt you,but i definitely get this feeling of floating & gliding in the air. Hence to me, its such a fitting piece to use to advertise an airline company!

Great shots of HK back in the 80s, I guess. So many happy memories of HK

What a great song to watch jumbo jets fly to. Very good.
tyme4mike (3 years ago)
One of the most fantastic airlines to ever grace the skies. Between Emirates and Cathay Pacific, I don't know who is the #1 airline I ever flew on. Flew to Bangkok back in 1990 by Cathay and it set the tone for the whole month I was there. Flew out by them, too. Excellent service and comfort.

Yes, this is how I get to know this song - by watching the Cathay Pacific Ad on TV all the time.  For the last 25 years, I have always thought this is just a typical Ad song until I heard it again recently on Satellite radio. This song represents a lot of joy, happiness and hope. Thank you Barry!!
Wong wan chung (3 years ago)
I Feel that Cathay Pacific Airways Now in 2015 Should SERIOUSLY Retained this Promotion Music as an Icon for the Airline just also the 35 Years of the Tribute to the Mighty Boeing 747-400 too of Services and the Former Old Kai Tak Airport which Now Closed PERMANENTLY and Relocated to Chek Lap Kok International Airport as seen in Mega Structures You tube Documentaries.
Cta2006 (3 years ago)
It's a dam shame that Cathay will end their use of B747 soon ... :-(

@Vitor MP > In the late 70's ~ early 80's, Cathay Pacific used this glamorous song for their TV adv. It was featured in the World. Many people saw that, and loved the Music. Thank you !!
Vitor MP (3 years ago)
Wondeful, take5t0ky0j! I live in Brazil and traveled two times to Asia, but I had not the pleasure to flight by Cathay. I hope in the next travel to this continent, that is the future of the world, have the oportunity to travel by Cathay. By the way, do you know where can I find some originals video of the Cathay's advertisement with this music? Thank you!
Vitor MP (3 years ago)
So glamorous! Is it true that Cathay used this music to be the on-board music?
Liau Chung Ren (2 months ago)
Vitor MP Yes, it was.

+Vitor MP Yes it was. I was a CX flight attendant in the early 90s and it was the nicest boarding music I have ever heard.

Wonderful video and the music! As I was born in Hong Kong, went through the era of Kai-Tak, handover to China, etc., this video triggered tons of memories in my childhood.
melle gerda (1 year ago)
Kai Tak was wonderful as I heard from a lot of Westerners who had experienced flying to HK. It was like diving right into a sea of diamonds.
muffintoo1 (4 years ago)
Everytime I hear this song always makes me think of "lets rock and roll" cause this used to be the passenger boarding music. Thank you, its a good cut of various ads, suprise to see some really old one.

they switch planes at 2:12. That's not a 747. Either a DC-10 or MD-11.
