The Theme music that you hear as you are leaving port

Some of us sods and Sodettes have soothing or not so soothing music playing in their minds as they are leaving the marina out into the bay or out to sea or on a lake, whatever.
So do you have a favorite? Several favorites or what ever was playing on the radio as you drove up? Is it soothing or really annoying??
Don't you hate when some silly tune gets stuck in your head.

It happens to me all the time. In my case, though, being a professional musician/singer/entertainer it's a good thing. While I was waiting for my computer to boot up I was on the keyboard playing "Suicide Is Painless," which is the theme song from MASH. When I climb aboard the boat and head south, even in Chesapeake Bay, Jimmy Buffett's A Sailor Looks At 40 seems to come to mind, then I mix a Margaretta, prop up my feet and...well, you know the rest of the story.

Gotta' do what the voices in your head say,

Gary

We were privileged to take an 11 day cruise on the 5-masted square rigged Royal Clipper for our 30th anniversary a while back. We sailed from Rome around the boot of Italy and up the Adriatic to Venice, with stops at ports along the way every day. The music played thru the ship's PA system as the sails were unfurled was the theme from the movie "1492-Conquest of Paradise" by Vangelis. Very moving; brought tears to my eyes every time!
