What is your favourite sailing song.
 
Curious to hear peoples favourite sailing song.

I am a Great Lakes guy, so I am a big fan of the Wreck of the Edmunds Fitzgerald.

Arcb, how do you define your favorite sailing song? Favorite to play while sailing? Favorite song about sailing?

I started this thread many years ago and it became one of the most fun things I have on the boat. You'll see from the OP the rules were to identify a song that contained a reference to sailing or sailors. Not beaches, wind, tropics, water, or boats in general, it had to be sailing.

I've long since made a mix of about two to three dozen songs, which I downloaded from iTunes. It's a crazy mix of old, new, country, rock, pop, swing, etc. We play it aboard, especially for newer guests. Virtually all the songs we chose are recognizalble (some in the thread aren't) but the newly exposed never really listened to the lyrics realize the reference. The mix amazingly works together. To this day, I hear one on the radio and add it about once per year. My latest add was "Waiting on You" by Lindsay Ell, which contains the line ".....like a sailboat wishing for the wind to blow....."

Here's some lyrics from a song I posted in Minnewaska's thread llinked to above. "Southern Cross" by Crosby Stills and Nash. Still my favorite song about sailing.

Got out of town on a boat goin' to Southern Islands
Sailing a reach before a followin' sea
She was makin' for the trades on the outside
And the downhill run to Papeete

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas
We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away

I don't know, I guess either. Anything that might be fun on a playlist for a 3 day drive to Florida.
