Re: Sailing specific songs

Wow, those were great, especially the Shiver Me Timbers. Took me back to 5 years of age when asked what I wanted to be I said "A beach bum". But that was before I discovered sailboats. Sinbad was my hero. Scheherazade my favorite music, even today.
I knew a guy in LA in the 60's that had a full reel (remember reel to reel?) of old sailing ditties. One I remember begins "Hoist the sails me hardies, and water the decks with brine, bend to the oars you lousy (rhyme needed here), the rest gets worse.
I remember others, but that was the nicest one.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Lots of great songs in this thread. Looks like I'll be making another donation to iTunes today.

I posted a while back about some more obscure sailing songs here: The Best Sailing Songs You've Never Heard.

Re: Sailing specific songs

That last one deserve to be listen on the original, I mean when they were young:



Songs last forever and not always are performed better when their authors get older

Ha! That's funny. I enjoyed your childhood story, too. Yes, I remember reel to reels...used to have one.

I used to practically live in one of the trees in our front yard. My dad had planted 3 of them, one was straight up, another was pulled over at a 45 degree angle, and the last was pulled over parallel to the ground. When they got about 5 years old, they were huge, and wonderful climbing trees. I sat in the 45 degree tree all the time (used to run up it barefooted) and pretended to be on a sailing ship. Good memories. I think that's why I liked Pirates of the Caribbean so much...it reminded me of my childhood.

Re: Sailing specific songs

That is like Puff the Magic Dragon an old song, a lot older and it takes also sailing in a figurative way, but what a big performance by Bessie Griffin:
