Have to admit that I'm having a hard time with qualifying some of the instrumentals. Maybe I'm not creative enough.
I guess that composition for ship horns is a difficult one to qualify I find it very funny

A more easy one from a composer singer that I like a lot : Wainwright the III

This is part of an interesting compilation about "Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys": Rogue's Gallery

Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys is a compilation album of sea shanties performed by a wide array of artists, ranging from Sting to Bryan Ferry, representing a variety of genres. The artists cover a large number of diverse songs of the sea, at times adding elements traditionally attributed to other types of music. The majority of the pop performers had not been known to be familiar with the sea shanty as a separate genre. The Rcord was produces by: Hal Wilner, Gore Verbinski, Johnny Depp & Brett Gurewitz.
