The Ultimate Non-Sailing Sailing Mix

While i wait for paint to dry and epoxy to cure, I am building this season's sailing soundtrack. Here's the goal- a great subtle evocative soundtrack for all occasions without a single chanty, reggae tune, or jimmy buffett chestnut. Instead, I want something a little more subtle, emotional, more ephemeral.
Here's where I am at, and maybe you'll see what I mean:
"Voices" -Russ Ballard. I first heard this song as background in an episode of Miami Vice- it backed Crockett and Tubbs crusing in a Scarab as the sun sets. Michale Mann knows evocative.
"The Power of Love" - Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Perfect for Long rollers, 10-15 knots, sunjust starting to set.
"Eminence Front"- The Who . The song for motoring out of the harbour after dark for a little fresh breeze nightsailing.
"Friend of ours"- Elbow. 'Cuz sometimes you sail because you don't want anyone to see you cry.
"Seasons of Love"- Rent Cast & Stevie Wonder- 'Cuz sometimes you sail because you don't want anyone to hear you sing while you cry.
"Leaving Wallbrook"- Hans Zimmer.
"Green Onions"- Booker T and the MGs. Forget the Ventures- this is the best damn instrumental group ever.
"Love the One You're With" Luther Van Dross- Sometimes, you just need some Luther. CSN should take notes.
"Stack O Lee" Samuel L. Jackson. Who knew? Perfect for when the air is thick, light, humid and you're just drifting.
"Everyday" Dave Matthews Band. Secular gospel with a horn section.Just give me a damn amen, alright?

So it's your turn to play DJ- what would you add?
