Rereading this thread I forgot, I used to sing my 6month old little girl to sleep with Jimmy Buffet's "Nautical Wheelers." She's turning 13yo next month. Time really flies.

Didn't know Gordon Lightfoot did "Christian Island," which was a song my father used to sing a lot while sailing. I didn't appreciate Dad's taste in music then... I think I may have misjudged.

Many of the aforementioned songs are on a 16 gig flash drive plugged permanently into my stereo aboard.

I used to have many of you folks rule against "man made distractions" under sail. I sometimes still follow that rule, but I sail on an enclosed puddle mostly, and sometimes with beverage in hand, like some music to go along.

That being said, I plugged in the same playlist while in the BVIs and my music selection varied from TV Themes, to Ballads, to Country, to Brass Band... while individual songs, raised an eyebrow or two here or there, the playlist was considered more than acceptable by everyone. So apparently I am not alone in wanting some background music while sailing, and sometimes even while sitting at anchor

Re: Favorite Sailing Song

This is from the movie The Dove, went to see this when i was 17 and it captured the sense of freedom i felt when sailing.
Sailing has been a lifelong passion since and I often think of this song.
