Re: Boat Theme Songs

When I bought Liberty Hound, a Hunter 27, this is the song I couldn't stop listening to! Sail Away, by the Oak Ridge Boys...

Re: Boat Theme Songs

and of course Dylan's Tambourine Man:

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Though I know that eveninís empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, Iím branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty streetís too dead for dreaming

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirliní ship
My senses have been stripped, my hands canít feel to grip
My toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wanderiní
Iím ready to go anywhere, Iím ready for to fade
Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Though you might hear laughiní, spinniní, swinginí madly across the sun
Itís not aimed at anyone, itís just escapiní on the run
And but for the sky there are no fences faciní
And if you hear vague traces of skippiní reels of rhyme
To your tambourine in time, itís just a ragged clown behind
I wouldnít pay it any mind
Itís just a shadow youíre seeiní that heís chasing
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

Then take me disappeariní through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
Iím not sleepy and there is no place Iím going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning Iíll come followiní you

In my opinion the whole thing sums up why I went crusing in teh first place.....and no I do not subscribe to the theory that its just about LSD!

Re: Boat Theme Songs

I always liked the Doors for sailing songs:

Land Ho
Crystal Ship
Ship of Fools
Horse Latitudes

And I will add more to that shortly.
Oddly enough, I am now a bigger fan of the Cartman version
