You must have some form of player already on your computer to use any of these INTERNET files. Just get them from a trusted source and have your anti virus programs up to date.
I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.

Thumbs up Eileen Quinn

Jimmy is ok, but I have really come more to associate his music with tourist traps and cruise ship type 'adventures'.

The best I know of is Eileen Quinn Her music makes much more sense to cruisers, and has much less to do with chain restaurants.

You can preview her music here.

Some lyrics;

Cruising Too Long (from Miss Inclined)

early in our cruising
we feared we'd run aground
we never did
we took such care with each little knew thing
over time we grew less timid
confidence we found
now we run aground a lot
'cause we know what we're doing

these are the signs we've been cruising too long...
nothing like experience to help you get it wrong
we've been cruising far too long
The Anchoring Dance (from No Significant Features)

...the perfect little parking place is easy to find
all you really gotta do is read his mind
if what your honey wants is hard to tell
when the hand signals fail you can always yell
grind your teeth, shout till you're hoarse
there's always one more step, you can file for divorce
no better way to test a true romance
than to do, do, do, do, do
do the anchoring dance ease to starboard, then hard to port
throttle down but you come up short
up on the foredeck, see them prance
when they do, do, do, do, do
do the anchoring dance...

I get a lot of heat from some of my manly friends, but when I'm cruising either with wind or motor, I like a little Enya.

Thanks for a great topic Christian, I've got two new CD's to order from Amazon now.

I nice easy way to sample most of the music here is to go to : MP3 Downloads Type in the artist ya want, and find the songs / albums you want to download. There is a sample button for all.

EILEEN QUINN!!! We love her! She's great live too. Couldn't be more cruiser than Eileen...

Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women!
