Re: Favorite Sailing Song

Whatever I happen to be singing at the time, which can be any of 3,800 songs that I perform. I found myself singing Jimmy Buffett's A Pirate Looks At 40 this past Sunday. When you're a singer, and a nut case sailor, singing while underway is just kinda a natural thing to do. If the rig breaks - it breaks. Ain't much more that I could have done about it anyway, Zee.

All the best,

i do not listen to music while i am sailing--buti love my music when at anchor and in slips..
I'm with you Zee about not listening to music while under sail. IMO it's important to be able to listen to the boat while underway. You might miss that "ping" sound when a shackle or fitting gives way or the bilge pump kicking on. At anchor it's a different story. Single Handed Sailor by Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler is on my favorite list as is Sailing to Philadelphia.

This sort of thing changes a lot with time. Currently - Back In the High Life by Steve Winwood.

Robert Palmer "Simply Irresistible". Especially the line "she's so fine there's no telling where the money went".
