Have to admit that I'm having a hard time with qualifying some of the instrumentals. Maybe I'm not creative enough.
I guess that composition for ship horns is a difficult one to qualify I find it very funny

A more easy one from a composer singer that I like a lot : Wainwright the III


This is part of an interesting compilation about "Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys": Rogue's Gallery

Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys is a compilation album of sea shanties performed by a wide array of artists, ranging from Sting to Bryan Ferry, representing a variety of genres. The artists cover a large number of diverse songs of the sea, at times adding elements traditionally attributed to other types of music. The majority of the pop performers had not been known to be familiar with the sea shanty as a separate genre. The Rcord was produces by: Hal Wilner, Gore Verbinski, Johnny Depp & Brett Gurewitz.

Well, it is one for sailors made by sailors

Believe it or not it is a traditional sailor's song:

It is possible that this song was inspired by an actual event, where a female convict (Charlotte Badger), sailing on the colonial brigantine Venus, convinced members of the crew to commandeer the vessel, sailing from Port Dalrymple in Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania) in 1806


Have some more from the same album and from favorite singers of mine, Nick Cave and Bryan Ferry:



here you can explore the rest of the Album that has some great sea songs:

qqqqhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTj-8waBk7E&feature=list_other&playnext=1&list=RD03cWDVQ3xqRNY

You have to go to the address with the q out and you will have a gallery with 10 songs. If I post only the address it will go to not to a gallery but only to the first song.

Regards

Paulo

Re: Sailing specific songs

OK, this one violates all the rules, but my 23 year old son put me up to this. He suggested this one (warning: language). His explanation is that rappers film a lot of videos on boats, even though their song topics have nothing to do with anything nautical. So this video is a parody of that:

Re: Sailing specific songs

Clearly references "wind in my sails" "catch a warm trade wind" Still, probably a metaphor, but I'm going to keep it.
