That was a good dose of meds for the winter blues. Thanks.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Probably not many of you have heard of "Trooper", a Canadian band out of Vancouver that had a pretty good run as an opening act in the 70s.. for my money one of the more underrated bands of the era.

This song isn't strictly sailing, but it's a close qualifier...

Re: Sailing specific songs

Great thread, Minnewaska !!!

With the fresh snowfall just what I needed against the winter blues. Now there is one song that I missed and very much like in the version by the Pardeys:

YACHT CLUB BAR

I love to sit around the yacht club bar and talk about the things we're going to do.
I love to sit around the yacht club bar because it doesn't move.
The swells are big and the winds are high but that don't bother me.
Cause I never get lost and my tummy doesn't toss
It's a wonderful life on the sea.
My boat it is a big one boys. My crew it is the best.
We race around the entrance buoy beating all the rest.
We're the first ones home with a bent elbow and a powerful salt spray thirst.
We sit around and drink all night and see who comes in first.

Chorus- I love to sit around the yacht club bar

I took her out one Sunday, we got about five miles out
The wind it was a screaming, right dead out of the south.
The waves they must have been two feet high, the swells at least one more.
I'm so lost and my tummy is tossed, I'll never get back to the shore.

My head it was a reeling, my feet got tangled up.
Those damn old sheets were everywhere, just trying to trip me up.
The halyard broke, the boom fell down, the main took off like a bird.
Mayday was my final cry as I dived beneath my berth.

My sailing days are over, cause of that great scare.
You others take a warning, and don't you go out there.
There's winds and seas and swells so high, how can you stay afloat.
Be like me and drink to the sea and don't untie your boat.



And then obviously for all French speakers (and bilingualists) :

"Dans Le Port D'Amsterdam", probably the most powerful description of sailors by the immortal Jaques Brel:



Beyond the Sea is great. The original version by Charles Trenet is what plays in my mind when I'm on the way to the water

Re: Sailing specific songs

I've only gone through a few of the pages here, but I haven't seen reference to Jimmy Buffett's "The Captain and the Kid." One of my favorites. To me, the older version has more "feeling" in it than the later one, but I like them both.
