Re: Sailing Tunes

Ohhhh, I SPECIALIZE in tropically themed music. LOL. My muse is the ocean; all of my jewelry designs are nautically themed and that kinda' stuff plays in my studio all day, I live at the shore!

Currently however, my very favorite stuff streams right from Kenny Chesney's No Shoes Radio. Can get it off of i Heart Radio, right off the NSR website and iTunes as well. Plus, there's a NSR app for iPhone. I listen to it all day, b/c it combines reggae, classic rock, country and even oldies. It's such a great blend, and he's definitely the "new" Jimmy Buffett. I love him as well. You get everything from Springsteen to Willie Nelson to 311, Bob Marley and Dave Matthews covers such a great range of music and plenty of live performances that I've never even heard before.

Aside from that, if you've never heard Kenny's album, Old Blue Chair, do yourself a favor and sink into the best coastal songbook I've ever listened to. I've worn that album OUT I've listened to it for so many years now. Even my 10 year old son has grown up with it and when we saw him perform here on the beach in Wildwood, NJ this summer, Ian was beside himself when he started to sing some of our favorite songs from that. It's really near and dear to my beach girl heart. <3

Thanks for all the great songs everyone! So many great pieces! I love Southern Cross, too.

Re: Sailing Tunes

Back in the 80s I listened to Judas Priest while pouring through Wooden Boat and Small Boat Journal magazines, and to this day, listening to old 80s JP songs just evokes a passion for sailing to me.

A 14-foot mini-cruiser is minimalist. A 19ft is comfortable, and anything much larger than a 25 borders on ostentatious.

Re: Sailing Tunes

Thank you Cotemar for the redirect to an older (but very worthwhile) thread. It's given me a long list of songs to add to the boat list. Can't help but wonder why no one mentioned Eric Stone?

But if Jimmy-esque music gives you hives, here's another old classic that always takes me away.

Great song but a bit of a strange video.....don't think it quite captures the seemed meaning of the lyrics....still, it's my ringtone!!

I doubt they thought it would be hit.

Love to listen to Calypso by John Denver. Great when the sun is dipping down on the horizon.

My son always starts our voyages with the Theme tune to master and commander blasting out. It seems to set the scene and puts us in the right mood.
