Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?

Roup9 and Christian.hess, that's exactly the sort of thing I meant - when the music fits the environment like a sound track, rather than sailing - related music, although it is interesting. Especially that Johnny Depp stuff and some of the others mentioned sound really promising ; will have to spend some time checking all those out. Thanks all.

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?

I've been a musician for over 25 years. I've been in 6 bands, played about 300 live shows. Rock, Metal, Folk, all of the above. Music means the world to me. And when I'm sailing, all I want to hear is the water against the hull and the whipping of the sails through a tack.

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Stan Rogers. He was a Canadian songwriter/musician that sang about all things nautical, particularly about the Maritime provinces. Incredible stories.

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?

For us, among all the other sailing stuff, we love Eileen Quinn!

Where Jimmy Buffett sings about the dream of cruising, Eileen IS a cruiser and sings about the reality of it. And does it OHHHhhhhhhooooooo so well!

In one of our videos, we show a big "pot luck" with many boats attending. She allowed us to use one of her songs as the background to it, the song is "Piranha Potluck".

You can hear snippets of her music at CD Baby ( Eileen Quinn | CD Baby Music Store )

Standard disclaimer, just a very happy listener.

Greg

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?

As a working musician/entertainer, I can unequivocally assure you that any and all music is good to sail by when you are out there alone with nothing but you and the sound of the waves slapping against the hull. However, when I have someone sailing with me, which is much of the time, the music stays off. Now, that's just how it is with me, opinions will, obviously vary.

Good Luck,

Gary

Re: Music for sailing: what floats your boat?
