Re: Music to Sail by . . .

This thread really shows that this forum is dominated by lame old farts with very limited imagination. I suppose with alzheimer's knocking on the door the potential playlist is getting shorter by the day



Whilst I have been enjoying quiet the past couple of weeks solo, I do enjoy cranking up Rammstein's Du Hast. The beauty of the German lyrics is that I haven't got a clue what it means and don't care



I'm swinging at at anchor right now and listening to my "old fart" music, Pearl Jam.

Sirius radio Pearl Jam channel. Internet techno psycho channels alternating with a little Van Halen and Buddy Rich. That help?

And of course the Frank Sinatra channel on Sirius radio, just to get a little swing in the day.

You and my wife can have a Vedder love fest together. I personally can only understand every tenth word he mumbles through his wine bottle

Perfect sailing music to me should make you smile - maybe even laugh.

One thing I do laugh about when these threads pop up is the complaints about music at anchor. I could be the one everyone is bitching about.

Another old fart here with old music. You can't beat Richard Rodgers.

Then move on to a little Bruddah Iz, Take Me Home:




Then pop in the Best of Ka'Au Crater boys:




Then wind down with a little Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau:

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

lemme get this straihgt..yer going to the REAL ocean to listen to someone else's rendition of an ocean.... doesnt make sense.....but if ye must--i prefer the real deal. my interpretation of music is not always the same as others. is why i like to listen to the sea and wind and boat.
if i am going to listen to "what a wonderfrul world", it HAS to be satchmo's version. grabs your heart and makes tears flow. first time i heard that one was in plymouth england, day satchmo died in 1971. his face on tv screen and that song background--- omg. song is awesome. but i like it for anchor. end oif day music.

The reason is some people are artists and some are not. Jack Johnson (for example), and many others, have the ability to put words to what I'm seeing or feeling. I could never do that on my own, or I'd be a misician myself

Seeing and feeling the world is one thing, but putting it all into prose and melodies is something completely different and well worth appreciating.

I personally don't have music when I'm sailing, but only because I don't have a stereo and the power to run it otherwise, I love hearing someone else elaborate and celebrate my own personal experiences.

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

The first time I took my best friend sailing...as we headed out the slough to the open lake, he asked for some music....a theme song for us...

I put on Gordon Lightfoot....Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald....

Just the kind of guy I am....

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

If everybody else here is an old fart for their selections then I must be dead and buried:

Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor

I love just the sound of the ocean, but every once in a while, when the wind is howling, the night is dark, the ocean is glowing, and the boat is moving along nicely....

Re: Music to Sail by . . .

Not a Huge fan of music at sea - I prefer to listen to the boat and how she's moving and I always wonder, when I have a crew with an ipod stuck in their ears, if they are really in tune with what is going on.

Having said that - I have the National Anthem of just about every littoral country that I'm likely to visit and whenever I arrive at my destination, I play the alleluia chorus from Handel's Messiah - its become a bit of a tradition, actually.....
