Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

It's interesting to discover what albums/playlists/mixes end up becoming favourites- Tunes that raely get played in the dirt home become boat favourites. Last season Sting's "Symphonicity" was in heavy rotation and this tune...

led to the purchase of the "Cold Mountain" sountrack, which became the go-to album for winds from 10-15 knots.
Over 15 knots the Big Fun mix comes out- Radar love, a crapload of AC/DC, Dropkick Murphys and of course the ultimate fun wind song, ZZTop's "La Grange."

Speaking of soundtracks, "50 First Dates" is a Saturday afternoon light wind, bob n bake, sailing with guests favourite.

Light wind night sailing- jan hammer's miami vice tracks ( "Evan", "Crockett's theme" etc.,)and early 80s pat metheny and just for fun, Felix Da Housecat's remix of Nina Simone's "Sinnerman"

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
