Re: Music to Sail by . . .

Sounds like fun and a good rule to go by. I like a variety of music myself.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

I like this style of music. Sound like it would be good to listen to with the wind in full sail.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

This thread started in 2011 and is still going because there is so much good music to sail by. Sailing has as many moods as there are types of music, so sailing and music work well together. I agree it's the OP that Southern Cross by Crosby Stills and Nash may be the best single sailing song (if you could only have one), but a great collection of sailing songs about places and sailing life in the British Virgin Islands comes from an unlikely source--Kenny Chesney, who is basically a country music singer. The CD is called "Be As You Are". Don't overlook it. Buy it cheap on eBay or download it on iTunes.

Am I wrong? Is the Baltic and Med actually replete with Parrotheads (other than on US flagged boats)?
I just don't like his music..Came out at the same time as Disco and everybody knows what Disco does ... this is more my style..!!

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

A modern take on an old tune.









a noble whale ship and commander
called the Catalpa, they say
she sailed into Western Australia
and took six poor Fenians away

so come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

you kept them in Western Australia
till their hair it began to turn grey
when a Yank from the States of America
came out here and stole them away

now all the Perth boats were a-racing
and making short tacks fot the spot
but the Yankee she tacked into Fremantle
and took the best prize of the lot

so come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away

the Georgette armed with bold warriors
went out the poor Yanks to arrest
but she hoisted her star-spangled banner
saying you'll not board me i guess

so remember those six Fenians colonial
and sing o'er these few verses with skill
and remember the Yankee that stole them
and the home that they left on the hill

so come all you screw warders and jailers
remember Perth regatta day
take care of the rest of your Fenians
or the Yankees will steal them away



http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalpa_rescue





Or a song for my fellow shipwrights:









Chip worked as a boatwright
As his father and his gran
Working in a boat yard
Building on the River Thames
One day Chip was hard at work
The Devil appeared from Hell
He held a roll of copper
And a bucket full of nails

The devil said unto Chip
Take these nail and copper roll
But you also have to take this rat
And I will take your soul
Chip despised the rat
The rat squealed and hissed
But the bucket o' nails and copper
Were too much to resist

Chip went straight to work
He'd get rid of the rat
And there would no be a problem
With his death after the fact
But the devil rat wouldn't die
No matter how hard he tried
The rat attacked the boatwright
And he bit him in the eye

It seemed as if the river rats
Fell under Satan's spell
They followed Chip around
And made his life a living hell
He slowly lost his mind
He lost his family
He lost his job
And had to join the King's Navy

A lemon grows a pip
A yard will build a ship
As Satan is my master
I will get you Chip

The rats chased Chip
Up the gangplank of the ship
They bit him and tortured him
Until he finally flipped
He sniveled to the captain
To turn around the rig
The captain spied his madness
And chucked him into the brig

Now the devil rat had his man
He knew just what to do
He'd command the rats
And through the planks they'd chew
The water rushed in
The ship went down
She was smashed upon the rocks
On which the rats danced around

Perhaps we have different taste in music. I find those tunes quite uplifting!

minaret, I confess: read the words, didn't pay to download the audio.

I can see where in that case you might think the lyrics a bit grim; but I assure you, were you an old school shipwright like me, you'd be more likely to find them hilarious. "Catalpa" is about the Catalpa rescue, wiki linked in the original post. Nothing depressing there, unless maybe you're an imperialist Brit who hates freedom! "Chip", however, is I assume where you take issue. FYI, Chip or Chips is the traditional name for any ship's carpenter. The idea that Chip is willing to sell his soul to the Devil for a bucket o' nails and a roll of copper ought to resonate with anyone who has done that sort of work. Certainly I've been willing to do the same on any number of build projects!



Both of these songs are very old Scottish folk songs, given a modern Celt-Punk take by my Canadian neighbors. Can't really be understood by anyone who's never attempted a Highland reel in the mosh pit at a punk show! So I understand your confusion, and appreciate your concern.
