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.

Here's the song I took my boat name from:


John
Ontario 32 - Aria

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.
JCP

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!
