The perfect Sailing Song

When we sail out of the bay, generally into the wind, we like to blast Richard Wagners "Ride of the Valkyies" at full volume to set the mood.

What a wonderful list! If I start collecting now, then when I head out to the sunset I''ll have a song for everyday! Some to go with the syrup! Thanks for sharing Pirate! And Happy New Year!

Does being a sailor mean that one can no longer rock?


"Ride, Captain, Ride" Blues Image


"I''m Your Captain/Closer To Home"
Grand Funk Railroad


And for those that liked Disco there''s "Rock the Boat" Forgettable Band

Sorry 73, but I believe you''re showing your age a bit with the mentioned "Rock" tunes.Don''t get me wrong, they''re all great tunes, but to be considered "Rock" now a days, tunes need to be capable of providing some "head banging", or at least some "Hip-Hopping", don''t they? ;^) I''m with you my brother, but my 14 year old daughter asked me,"A Grand Funk.... what?" ha!ha! One more "easy listening sailing tune worthy of this list: "Cool Change" - Little River Band

DuaneIsing:
I think you hit on a good one there. Before I learned a few sailing terms I had no idea what Crosby, Stills and Nash were talking about in "Southern Cross". The whole first stanza is nothing but sailing.

Isn''t the souther cross a celestial point of reference for navigation?

See ya
