We love Abba - all of their albums...very uplifting and great for sailing. We purchased a 35P and was lucky to have lots of classical music left aboard. What a pleasant way to play cards, dominoes (mexican train) or dine w/this on.

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

I just blogged about some of my favorite obscure sailing songs here: Sail Far Live Free: The Best Sailing Songs You've Never Heard

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

Thanks for taking the time for that list leocat66. I will check out each one of them. You too MikeOReilly.
No body mentioned Cool Change by LRB. I listen to that one at least once a week if not more often, reminds me of why I am eating at home all the time and saving as much of my meager wages as possible. Or does that one fall into the same catagory as Jimmy Buffett? Whom I have most all of his songs and they still bring a smile when I hear them yet again and play them often just to get into a light hearted mood. I freely admit to being a parrot head. Christopher Cross, well I listen to 'Sailing' when it comes up on the ipod in shuffle mode, but how about his 'Ride Like the Wind', it's not a far stretch to adapt parts if not mostly to sailing. Most anything Santana, check out 'Shape Shifter', and of course 'Europa' and 'Samba Pi Ti', oh and 'Singing Winds and Crying Beasts', 'Vera Cruz'. Even Madonna's 'Isla Bonita'. For the jazz lovers check out Gato Barberi and Two Cellos. Erikah Badu is very nice for romantic evenings with a special mate, add red wine. I am gravitating towards clasical more and more, there is such a wide range of classical music to fit all moods and goes very nicely as background music to the wind in the sails and waves past the hull.
Thanks again all, as you can tell, I can use and appreciate new music to explore. So glad I perused this thread, and will continue doing so.

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

For me, it's definitively music-free when sailing. My favorite moment when sailing is actually a sound as well: It's that moment after you've set your sails, when you turn off the motor and yet somehow, magically, the boat is still moving forward. It's that moment when I realize that this forward motion isn't burning a limited tank of gas, and yes, I really could go anywhere I wanted.

For rainy, cold winter days, when sailnet and a bookshelf of nautical books are the only things keeping me sane I like Awolnation's Sail to get the sailing/racing blood pumping.



I also STRONGLY agree that at anchor, especially during that magic sunset time, music should not be heard beyond your own boat. Unfortunately this also seems to be the time that everybody wants to run a genset.
