Re: Music to Sail by . . .

The USA has given the world some wonderful music: Blues, most of the jazz legends, rock 'n' roll, R&B, soul, hip hop....but is it only Americans who actually "get" Jimmy Buffet? Most folk outside the US probably say "who?" but those who don't will generally say "why?!". I have eclectic tastes and am more willing than many to give inane crooning a chance but...nope...still don't get the appeal. Not even on a sunny afternoon on the boat with a margarita.

Am I wrong? Is the Baltic and Med actually replete with Parrotheads (other than on US flagged boats)?

So this is what its like to have a boat TOO FAST. Its supposed to be FUN, not perpetual survival mode.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

Thanks for that Rolling Stones video.

I listened to it a couple of times. Probably will
listen again soon.

Just great.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

I don't have any "go to" music when on the water. I mostly like classic rock or British invasion stuff like Beatles, Zombies, Animals, etc. Lately I've been listening to a playlist I assembled of old New Orleans R&B. Having grown up there, these tunes are local anthems. Ernie K Doe, Benny Spellman, Fats Domino, Prof Longhair, Lee Dorsey, etc. Great tunes for any occasion.

Please don't complain, I already know my taste in music is ... unusual
The movie "Underground" is the 1995 Emir Kusturica one, not the later slasher flick. Very funny.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

Southern Cross (even Jimmy's version)
Jason Mraz
Jack Johnson
James Taylor
And I like a lot of Jimmy B's low key sailing songs. Pirates life at forty and son of a sailor are two of my favorites. Wouldn't consider myself a parrot head but it's feel good music that puts me in the right state of mind.

Fair winds and following seas

I thought this would be good for all the dreamers out there.

Glad you like it.
My other favorites from him are:

Working for the Pullman Company
Ten Million Slaves
Nasty Letter

He's got other good one's but those stand out to me.

Great - Yes, I picked up 10 million slaves, Pullman Company and Nasty Letter. Also liked "I can see you're lying", and "Hands on yours Stomach".

I find music quite important on long deliveries and because I have a pool of different crew whose tastes range from Heavy Classical to Heavy Metal, I have a pretty eclectic library. The rule generally is that whoever is cooking that evening gets to choose the music!
