To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean...

I recently heard the song "Calypso" by John Denver on the radio, and the refrain got stuck in my head.  I knew I'd heard it somewhere before, but just couldn't place it.   The memory was just at the very edges of my consiousness.

Then my SO told me that was the last song they would play at Marineland of the Pacific just before the orca show started.  The memory finally clicked into place, that's where I'd heard the song. 

Marineland closed some time in the mid 1980's.  I think I was 10 years old the last time I went there.
