Re: Sailing music

I'll be cruising by myself most of the next 7 months, and during that time I'll be singing lots and lots of songs, mainly just to keep my voice and memory in good condition. Lots of country, Jimmy Buffett, 50s, 60s, 70s and early 80s songs, all of which I perform regularly. When I finally arrive in Marathon, FL I'll probably think of some new ones to work on as well. So to me, sailing music is whatever I'm singing while I'm sailing. The one song I will not be singing is the Ballad Of The Edmond Fitsgerald by Gordon Lightfoot - damned depressing song for sailors, it is.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Sailing music

Not to be a stick in the mud, but my favorite sailing music is the water lapping against the hull.
Flybyknight and SchockT like this.

I still do a gig now and then and sing some of Gordie's songs. Everyone always likes The Wreck of the E.F. It is a great song IMHO...."The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound, as a wave broke over the railing and every man knew as the captain did too, t'was the witch of November come stealin." Poetry. Remembering the lyrics to it is a good brain exercise!

Check out some of Gordon Bok's songs for some down-to-earth maritime folk tunes. Kagan, bring the dory home.

I was reading about that ship just a few days ago, and was interested to learn that in 2010 he changed a lyric to reflect new information recently learned:

Was:

"At seven P.M. a main hatchway caved in; he said,
'Fellas, it's bin good t'know ya!'"

Is now:

"At 7 p.m., it grew dark, it was then he said,
'Fellas, it's bin good t'know ya!'"

Re: Sailing music

Didn't realize he changed the lyrics. Did they discover the hatchway did not cave in?

Re: Sailing music

I think the hatchway caving in was just a theory. I guess someone finally made an official statement that it was only conjecture. Apparently that line was actually a cause for distress among the surviving families of the deck crew.
