That's right on all. Great song and Otis is the only version.

However, its not sailing specific so doesn't qualify. I'll take ships if its clear they are talking about sailing ships, but Otis doesn't. There have been some GREAT adds above. But beaches, oceans, nautical, etc are sneaking in and don't count.

Keep the sailing/sailor songs coming !! This has been great.

Re: Sailing specific songs

This is one you can improvise to:

Way, hay up she rises
Way, hay up she rises
Way, hay up she rises
Earlye in the morning!

What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
What will we do with a drunken sailor?
Earlye in the morning?

Then each of the following lines you repeat three times followed by "Earlye in the morning"


Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him

or

Hoist him aboard with a running bowline

or

Make him turn at shining bright work

or

Put him in a boat and row him over

OR you can start making your own shite up.

Re: Sailing specific songs

I will admit that humming Drunken Sailor in my head for the past day has been pleasantly overcome by Dock of the Bay. Thanks!!

But Otis still doesn't count.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Fado (destiny) is the typical Lisbon kind of music, kind of an older blue.

This one is about a Canoa, that is a type of old sailing boat. It is a famous song around here. Well, it is special for me not only because it is a great song but also because my first boat was a 80 year old Canoa that I have recovered.

If someone is interested on the letter you can find it here and run it by a translator.

CANOAS DO TEJO - Carlos do Carmo (letra e vídeo)



Ir this one, also a very popular one about Sailing away:

Re: Sailing specific songs

I am searching for a maritime fisherman's song I used to hear on CBC back in the 70's. "Ory Get Your Dory, There are Herring in the Bay". Anyone ever heard it or have any ideas where I can look? I am stipulating it was either a sailing dory or working from a sail powered carrying boat. Ha!

Oh my gosh...amazing! And we had to look up Mt. Gay, because we've never heard of it, but it turns out it's the oldest rum from Barbados made in 1703 and specifically for the sailing community. That's too much. What fun! Thanks for sending!! That was truly a learning experience for us.

Re: Sailing specific songs

How about the one by Chris de Burgh called "Sailing Away". (He's looking at the boats in the harbor and as they sail away...does that count?)

Here's an unusual one by Michelle Shocked "It must be luff" I don't really remember the words to this song though, so it may not qualify.

I actually spend quite a bit of time curating my Yacht Rock playlist. Here's the most recent incarnation, which assembled following the sudden death of my music server:
