Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

Privateering by Mark Knopfler

Yon's my Privateer
See how trim she lies
To every man a lucky hand
And to every man a prize
I live to ride the Ocean
The mighty world around
To take a little plunder
And to hear the cannon sound

To lay with pretty women
To drink Madeira wine
To hear the roller's thunder
On a shore that isn't mine...

Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

"So far from the Clyde" a sad song about boats by Mark Knopfler

They had a last supper the day of the beaching
She's a dead ship sailing skeleton crew
The galley is empty, the stove pots are cooling
What's left of the stew?

The time is approaching, the captain moves over
The hangman steps in to do what he's paid for
With the wind down the tide she goes proud ahead, steaming
And he drives her hard into the shore...

Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

Stan Rogers made some great sailing music, for example:
The Mary Ellen Carter
White Squall
Barrett's Privateers

Mary Ellen Carter,

More than a sailing song, a song about overcoming adversity, with sailing as a theme.

Re: What is your favourite sailing song.

6 Months in a Leaky Boat

1982
Split Enz.

When I was a young boy
I wanted to sail around the world
That's the life for me
Living on the sea
Spirit of a sailor
Circumnavigates the globe
The lust of a pioneer
Will acknowledge no frontier

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go,
And they'll turn it down for the cell they know
