Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

Sail Away with Me Honey - David Gray
Perhaps one of the more astute members could post a link. I'm just not that tech savvy nor do I wish to be. Unless you have high quality speakers attached to your computer I doubt you will be able to fully appreciate the intricacies of the song but it's worth a listen none the less.

Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

My hearing is not that good any more so I don't listen to music often. I do like Tom Waits' "Waltzing Matilda"... though it's hardly a sailing song. The tempo makes me think of a comfy broad reach. Lyrics actually remind me of being in the Caribbean.


pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

^^^ agreed SanderO, Tom Waits is sailing music whether he sings about sailing or not.

The Pogues also had a rendition of WaltzingMatilda on their very nautical themed album "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash".

Here is "Billy Bones" off the same album.

Slayer and ThereYouAre like this.
