Good sailing songs for a mix-tape?

Okay not a mix tape, but to load up an iPod?

Something to listen to when on a reach across the Chesapeake on a perfect evening. Or something to listen to when stuck in traffic on the beltway wishing I was on the bay?

I'd like to know what's on your playlist that's sailing related.

Southern Cross by Crosby Stills & Nash is definitely on there.

Here's a good live version on youtube: YouTube - Crosby Stills Nash - Southern Cross

And the VH1 video with some sailing footage: YouTube - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Southern Cross

Other suggestions?

Thanks!

(still has a box of lame cassettes I (literally) taped over -- remember sticking tape over the holes on the top so you could record onto them?)

We've been loving Kenny Chesney's "Be as You Are" CD. Not too twangy for a country singer. Almost entirely about sailing in the virgin islands, where he is know to hang out routinely.

Coy thanks for that, very nice

Here is a couple for you;

Tanglefoot - Trailghli Bay, as mentioned in the youtube comments, The best pirate song there is.
YouTube - Tanglefoot - Traighli Bay

and

Tanglefoot - Dollar Bill
YouTube - Tanglefoot Canadian Folk Roots Band Singing Dollar Bill

A song that won't mean much to most but for me..
Dollar Bill's was a bar in my home town of Kingston, named after a famous boot legger from the 20's. The song is about him, to be in Dollar Bill's on a Saturday night during prohibition, good times I bet.

Awesome stuff! Keep 'em coming!
Fighting sails in a squall to O Fortuna -- I could practically see you do it while I had it playing!
