Re: Favourite Cruising Songs?

For night watches? Dark Star, the live version by The Grateful Dead, it sort of put me in the right mode.
Glad someone mentioned the Gilligans Island theme, after all these years I can still remember all the lyrics. Whats the difference between the lyrics for the pilot episode and the regular series?
One more tune for fun, Martin Mulls "Men", co-written with Steve Martin. Trying to get the whole crew to learn the lyrics for a race we're doing this spring.

Re: Favourite Cruising Songs?

For that drift away mood. "You can get anything you want at Alices Restaurant. .... including Alice"

Honestly I have over 14 gigs of songs I have not gotten a file count in a while but I think I would just slap it on random something sooner or later would spark my mood. For safe bets most tunes from the 60's and 70's would be a pretty safe bet I would be playing with a dash of 90's and today's tunes.

Right now Soul Asylum - Black Gold is playing and it just changed to oops umm David Peel and the Lower East Side - Happy Mothers Day.... "you are made of plastic you are filthy rich"

Re: Favourite Cruising Songs?

I made a typo; I put a Jimmy Buffett song as "Find" , it is actually "Fins"
