Re: Sailing specific songs

Lot of interesting songs here. Please forgive this question if it has been already asked but... Is it possible to take a song off of this thread and create a MP3 file so it can be replayed on an iPod? or do you have to go to I Tunes and download it there? I'm not savy in the ways of the iPod and am in need of some advice.

For sure. However, the song doesn't mention anything about sailing.

No idea how, but assume it would be illegal. Most of the youtube rebroadcasts must be as well.

I'm just buying the song I like on iTunes.

Re: Sailing specific songs

I was afraid of that. Napster was way before I got the iPod. I do the iTune thing now, but some of these more obscure songs I'm not sure are even there. Besides, call me cheap but I don't think I want to spend a buck for an original, unabridged "Popeye the Sailor Man".

It mentions "a salty old dog of the sea" with a silver tongue or some such, and your original post did say sailing or sailors. Powerboaters and fishermen smell funny so he must be a sailor.

[QUOTE=capttb;951211]There's just not enough accordians and females in here.

well I think we can add some sirens

I don't know if Sirens count. They have always been on sailors imagination .



On this one I love so much the song and this three vastly different interpretations that I will not resist to post the three.

Re: Sailing specific songs

I couldn't find Little Feat's version, so Robert Palmer will have to do...

As long as we all believe the referenced Sailor is sailing a sailboat, its in.

I agree, stinkpotters smell bad, so it should be easy to tell the difference.
