I was going to suggest the same one. It's by Lonely Island though, featuring T-pain. Brilliant! :-)

Also 'sail' by awolnation, played very loudly through a decent stereo system. Most uplifting.

re: Favourite Cruising Songs?

Just about anything by Eileen Quinn Some of my favourites:
  • Don't Make Me Dock!
  • Cruising Too Long
  • If I Killed The Captain
Of course, for Great Lakes cruisers there's always Stan Rogers' White Squall and Bluenose.
