That's a loooooong stretch. Songs about booze and money would count too. But they don't.....

Ok, Sirens will be out but it is not a fair comparison with boose or money. Sirens are sea creatures that lived only in the imagination of old sailors. Boose or money are real and not specific to sailor's imagination.

"Song to the Siren"

On the floating, shapeless oceans
I did all my best to smile
til your singing eyes and fingers
drew me loving into your eyes.

And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me;
Let me enfold you."

Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you.
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was full sail?

Now my foolish boat is leaning, broken love lost on your rocks.
For you sang, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow."
Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow.
I'm as puzzled as a newborn child.
I'm as riddled as the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or shall I lie with death my bride?

Hear me sing: "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you."
"Here I am. Here I am, waiting to hold you."


Regards

Paulo

I should have said that sailors imagine MORE booze and money.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Kind of dark...and not one for the boatdrinks mixtape...but we have to get some Rush aboard...

Canadian power trio Rush from the album "Caress of Steel" Side B lyrics by Peart

"No One At the Bridge"

Crying back to consciousness
The coldness grips my skin
The sky is pitching violently
Drawn by shrieking winds
Seaspray blurs my vision
Waves roll by so fast
Save my ship of freedom
I’m lashed helpless to the mast

Remembering when first I held
The wheel in my own hands
I took the helm so eagerly
And sailed for distant lands
But now the sea’s too heavy
And I just . . . I just don’t understand
Why must my crew desert me?
When I need . . . I need a guiding hand…

Call out for direction
And there’s no one there to steer
Shout out for salvation
But there’s no one there to hear
Cry out supplication
For the maelstrom is near
Scream out desperation
But no one cares to hear


I also like alot of these songs everyone has posted...and also Robert Plant's version of "ship of fools"...

Re: Sailing specific songs

This a great thread for a rainy day. One that I didn't see mentioned was the Dave Mathews live cover of Lyle's great song "If I had a boat"

Re: Sailing specific songs

Thanks, it is a pleasure. Let me share one of the songs I like more with you: Amsterdam It is in French but the words are translated so you can follow the song. The guy was a famous Belgian singer and a sailor (for many years) that just left everything to sail away with his boat to the Marquise Islands. He had bad luck and died from cancer shortly after have arrived there. Really a sad thing.

Thank You again PCP, what a talent, and a very sad ending to what was just starting to take shape in his sailing adventures.

I am still trying to figure how to post the You Tube videos here on this site.
