Without a doubt:

Bob Marley Pass It On

It's just so hard to go wrong with Bob

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
- Robert Heinlein

As for me, it's all about listening and reconnecting to the world around you. Some describe it as finding the music of the spheres, but I think that's far too astronomical, not to mention too large a scale. I hear the sounds of man's silence - or perhaps we should call it the music of the piers. There's the the sound of water caressing pilings, high-fiving hulls, and flopping up on the harbor shore; the easy susurrus of the wind in the rigging; the atonal clanks of many halyards, hitting aluminum masts making a countermelody to the melodious (well, sorta melodious) calls of sea birds, and so much more. It's the most beautiful music in the world!

If I have gone down to single hand the boat for a sail, sometimes I'll just sit in the cockpit for a few minutes and listen before I start doing anything. It goes especially well with a cup of coffee -- juice of the holy bean as a friend calls it. But that's another thread.

No song, just a routine announcement. "Anythings gonna happen, its gonna happen out there", then we cast off and the unfamiliar look at us like we're nuts. That's the best part.

The theme from "Shaft"
Pretty much that is the theme music I hear everywhere. It is expensive to have the band follow me around all the time, though.


Seriously, though, there are times where the "Benny Hill" theme would be appropriate.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

If anybody says "The Theme from Rocky" I'm going to puke!


Right now I'm humming "Boat Drinks"
in two weeks it will be "Changes in Lattitude, changes in attitude . . ."

When we leave port we always play a song from the Animals

HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN.....now maybe thats because Haleakula is Hawaiian for House of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

------ organ solo ------

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy

Kinda self-explanatory:

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

"The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note..."


One of these days, I'm gonna find me a runcible spoon.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
