Re: Music to Sail by . . .

I like this. I think music is important and goes well with sailing. I had some CD's and wanted more music and a friend had gig's of music, but when I asked, he said Yeah, he had gig's of music. He didn't want to get in trouble by selling me a bunch of his music collection. My SO (Safety Officer, Significant Other) likes classical. I bought an XMPCR online which is an XM receiver that uses your computer to play the audio. Also there was software online to record what I was listening to. I recorded several XM channels and found that they begin repeating the playlist after about 3 days. I was getting about 2-3 gigs of music per channel. The other nice feature is you can get all night talk radio when you're at sea. Keeps company if you're singlehandling. I think I've got 40 or 50 gigs of music now. Of course there are some blanks, some glitches, but I'll never get around to hearing it all. Maybe I'll make some big playlists and burn them to DVD and play them for entertainment. I've got to use the laptop for weathermaps and such, my smartphone has a 2 gig playl.ist on it already, it looks like I need to get an ipod or two.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

i think you guys will enjoy this one, and the disco biscuits in general
the disco biscuits really started the live electronic, jam-tronic, or as they call it trance-fusion genre.



"Magellan"

The waves make mountains, I've sailed with ease,
As wind gathers firmly in my canopy.
We dive through the mist to the autumn sun,
My vessel and its crew of twenty one, and we fly.

Through burgundy smoke and a fear of home,
Alas, my final mission to the great unknown.
As my thoughts betray me in flashes so bold,
I'm reminded of home where the coast shines like gold.

darkness, thunderstorm, a ship going down,
the crashing of rain and its deafening sound.
as the crew ties the sails blown aside by the wind,
crashing from the waves come tumbling in and we fly.

Rolling like a cobra, one life to spend,
drifting through the heavens where the oceans they end.
and there's no longer the sea no longer the sun,
my ship and the waves have all swirled into one.

And i'm off past the vision, the line of the light,
Where oceans turn waterfalls, daytime turns night.
And no people return, no stories to tell,
And i watched thru the door for the toll of the bell.

One with the raging wind,
Alive on the highest tides,
My ship at sail can climb a mountain,
Ride it to the sky.

Whoa...oh, he'll navigate!

Earlier up this morning, as I sit upon the bow,
In the distance, my homeland, but I just don't know how.
Years along the sea, and I thought I'd find the sun.
Once around the world, and now I think I'm done.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

I have a playlist started. But as was mentioned earlier, different places and times of day, or weather conditions call for different music. It is background music.

Jan Hammer - Crockett's Theme (Miami Vice)


Jimmy Buffett - Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes


St. Elmo's Fire - Man In Motion


Seals & Croft - Summer Breeze


Christopher Cross - Ride Like The Wind


Phil Collins - Another Day In Paradise


Da Yoopers - Fishin' With Fred


Crosby, Sills, Nash - Wooden Ships


Seals & Croft - We May Never Pass This Way Again


If you are sailing in Asia...
Murray Head - One Night In Bangkok


Watergate - Heart Of Asia

I am learning more about everyone from their playlists then I ever learned from their sailing posts!

I love music on the boat. Can't tolerate it in the office and every office I managed "open music" is banned.

I have a bunch of everything and what I am listening to often depends on the wind.

Buffet, chis cross, bob marley, sailing ballads - Sailing music is just too cliche. Don't hate it but don't play it at all.

Just about anything else except techno is heard on my boat. Latin dance is played frequently, some rap and metal is heard in short bursts. Old blues, rythm and blues, 70's rock. 60s rock and roll. Indian Bangra dancing can be found. Cars, B52s, roxette, zeppelin, berlin, ramones, billy idol, skynard, pink, joan osborne, tom jones (c'mon who doesnt love sex bomb?)

I make it a point to grab playlists from my nieces and nephews. In return once I gifted aerosmith cds to them for christmas. They had never heard of them and loved them!

They gave me just about every song I have released since about 2005

My current favorite boat song is "boats and hoes" perfromed by will farrell and john reilly. If you have a sense of humor and are not easily offended, you tube it.

Number one all time favorite is the rock and roll national anthem. Of, course that means Johnny B. Goode. Classic Chuck Berry is favorite but George Thorogood does a good one.

Oh wait. I just reralized. I do have a couple of techno songs. I guess the only thing not played on my boat are boat songs, go figure...

Now you know way too much abut me...

So I propose the following. If you are reading this you must (or the sailing gods will smite thee) post the must have song that comes to mind to sail to in the perfect conditions.

There is one rule.. If someone has mentioned the song you want you must choose another.

I'll start.

----

Southern Cross - Crosby Stills and Nash

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

Hey ex-Calif,

That said you'll probably get a kick out of these - Just search on youtube for these search strings below ...

(I'm a fan of blues, bluegrass, jazz, chill-out [test drive some French tech-chill; it's phenomenal stuff], bit o'Cuban/Latin & lo-fi minimal electronica, mixed with a dash of rap, hip-hop, techno ... )

Charlie Musslewhite mississippi beat 1
Smog Bill Callahan Rock Bottom Riser
Boozoo Bajou Tony Joe White Keep Going (link is above)
Tom Jones Burning Hell
JJ Grey Georgia Warhorse *
JJ Grey She Don't Know *
JJ Grey & Mofro - Footsteps (HD)*
Louie Austen One Night in Rio
Cafe Americaine - L'amour (Loungematic mix)
Roisin Murphy Ruby Blue
Cafe del Mar As the Cables Sleep
Sufi Trance Project Infinity by shalid ozgur
Dead Can Dance - Bird
Jim Rivers - I go deep

& for something a bit faster

Beastie Boys OK
Bliss N Eso Family Affair
Rodrigo y Gabriela - Savitri 11:11
Chicks on Speed We Don't Play Guitar
Drapht Sing it (Life of Riley)

and to finish ... hmmm, either UNKLE Eye for an Eye (or) UNKLE The Answer Trentemoller Remix.

I'm presuming you already have everything on Buena Vista Social Club? "Chan Chan" is totally uplifting. If you like guitar, Rodrigo y Gabriela - Savitri 11:11, is hard to top.

Enjoy!
S

* Anything by JJ Grey is phenomenal.

I'm pretty sure horrendrilous is where they were trying to go with that. Silly guys. Perhaps you could make your own version with man-hoes....

Thanks for all that. Another day spent in front of the computer downloading - grrrrr...

How about a song to wash your boat by. This one always gets my crew scrubbing...



Particularly appropriate if you have been "overloading" your cat with too much chain and too many provisions...

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

I just thought i would add this to the pile, i listen to the words and relate them (well, some of them) to chasing the dream of a life afloat...

Eg: "Rome wasn't built in a day" could be the boat or lifestyle you/I are chasing ?? or "You and me, where meant to be, walking free, in harmony" ?? you/I and the sea maybe ??.......

The song has absolutely nothing to do with boats, and I’m being as corny as hell i know, but that's just me, also i just love listening to Skye's voice
.......enjoy




Lyrics....



Also....
