Music For A Wild Night At Sea

The Christmas winds were blowing and I had said to my bright shining one, who was flying in from Germany, that I would be there to pick her up, so I was making a night passage with 30 knots just aft of the beam.

It was a bright night, and we were roaring along but I was going nuts.

It was my own fault, I had left some chillout flute music on the music machine when what I wanted was some headbanging, footstomping, fistpumping singalong at the top of your voice stuff.

So on the work list for this summers quiet days in Grenada includes setting up a playlist for a wild ride.

I guess I would have the following for sure but need some help.

Burning Down The House ....Talking Heads
Bat out of Hell Meatloaf
Greetings from the fire .....Billy Joel [with the french toast video playing in my mind]
Don't fear the reaper....... Blue Oyster Cult
Thunder road .......The Boss


You get the idea MORE PLEASE !

My personal tastes would run toward Wagner's Der fliegende Hollšnder, but it sounds like you might better appreciate some songs from my youth at a time like that. I recommend Golden Earring's Radar Love.

There's an introduction to the music, but darn, is this one of the happiest songs of all time. If you listen to this, and don't begin to feel happy on the inside, you're a monster :O The actual song begins at about 0:40 if you don't want to listen to the composer speak. This is just my music taste. I'm a classical guy.

Wagner Ride of the Walkuries
Ives Symphony No 2.
Verdi Anvil Chorus from Il Trovatore
Strauss Thus Sprak Zaratustra (played loud enough to blow out your speakers)
Tchaikovsy Symphony No 4
Musorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition (orchestral version)

Just a short list of bombast from the classical genre. There is lots more for you to explore plus a ton of much more subtle music to tickle your brain.

Thanks,

I've got a 100+ playlist entitled "dishes" that looks to be right up your alley. I'll see if I can copy/paste the listing when I get home.
