Re: Sailing specific songs

Thanks for a pleasant distraction from all the other crap going on.
I'm thinking about Lyle right now.
I was in Grand Cayman for my 40th. Forget the guys name "barefoot something". Was supposed to be the caymans version of Buffet. Played "pirate looks at 40" for me. Will never forget that evening.

Doesn't matter the era or genre or even if you like them, I will sort them out. Beaches, oceans, and particularly stinkpots don't count. The song needs to be about sailing or sailors, but it doesn't have to be in the title.

Here are a few to get started. Got any?? Its going to be a long winter.........

Come sail away - Styx
Cool change - Little River Band
Soul of a Sailor - Kenny Chesney
Sailing - Christopher Cross
Sail Away - Randy Newman
Sail On - Commodores
Son of a son of a Sailor - Jimmy Buffet
Brandi - Looking glass
Sloop John B - Beach Boys

Re: Sailing specific songs

It fun to have the words to some chanties printed and kept on board. Visitors have fun with them (kids and adults after a few brews).

Sail Delmarva: Sea Chanties ...

We have a longer list on-board. Add...
* Rovin
* Haul Away Joe
* Blow the Winds
* Boney

Re: Sailing specific songs

How about "I am sailing" by Rod Stewart (may just be titled "Sailing" its been a little while since I listened to the album)

Unfortunately it doesn't meet minne's "sailing specific" requirement, and respectfully, there is only ONE version.
Otis.
period.

But, on our boat "Sittin' " is a playlist staple.

Pretty much anything he ever did would be apt for this thread I guess but this is a personal favourite, gives me goose pimples.

Liked Stan Rogers voice...nice singing. Thanks for that. Never heard of him before. Where's he from?

Also another song..."Michael row the boat ashore" by the Highwaymen; an oldie. Showing my age here!

And before you go ballistic - there was a lost verse that explained they were rowing ashore from their schooner to get more rum.

I've never heard that version..or verse. Can you tell what the whole thing is? I'd really like to know.
