Loggins and Messina "Full Sail" LP. First heard it sailing around Hawaii. Can't seem to get it out of my mind. Of course, no music is fine.

Favorite Cruising Music?

Our boats theme song is "Where the boat leaves from" by the Zac Brown Band. We listen to a lot of him, Buffet, Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Bostones, Marley, John Browns Body, and some other mixed country and reggae.

We have an iPod for the boat that has several playlists. We will also hook up the iPhone and put on Pandora if close to shore.

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"

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

I love all kinds of music too, from classical to blues to country, but don't listen to music while underway, for the reasons everyone else gave... but, sitting at anchor with a glass of wine, anything by Van Morrison does it... "Into the Mystic"... there are many references to sailing and the sea in his music. Poetry.

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

I recently put together a youtube playlist of great sailing songs: Great Sailing Songs - YouTube

It's got most of the tunes mentioned in this thread plus many more.

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

Hey you all don't forget Enya songs. To name just a couple, try Book of Days or Caribbean Blue. Nearly all of her songs are awesome to listen too while sailing. In fact I like her songs so much I thought about naming my next boat Enya

What ever happened to this lunatic?
You guys didn't scare him off did you?
Say something nasty about how he smells?
Make fun of his C-30?
Or how he almost got run over by a container ship?
Did the mod's finally have enough of his wackiness?

Hog, where are you?

Re: Favorite Cruising Music?

I actually kind of enjoy night passages while I'm on shift and my husband is asleep, close up the companionway for a few minutes, and belt out some Florence and the Machine, 'Shake It Out'.
