I finally got on the iPod bandwagon and have a boat that I can plug it into, and need some boat related songs. Here’s what I have so far:
Gilligan’s Island theme
Deadliest catch theme (Dead or Alive)
Pirates of the Caribbean
I’m Your Captain (Grand Funk)
Sloop John B (Beach Boys)
Kokomo (Beach Boys)
Calypso (John Denver)
Love Boat Theme
Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (Gordon Lightfoot)
Boat Drinks (Jimmy Buffet)
Pirate looks at Forty (Jimmy Buffet)
Where the Boat leaves from (Zac Brown)
Toes (Zac Brown)
Love Shack (B-52s)
Island Girl (Elton John)
As you can tell, the rules are:
*Work all night on a line of coke (daylight come mon me wan get stoned)
Been so long since I had a toke (daylight come mon me wan get stoned)
Come Mr. Tallymon, tally marijuana (dcmmwgs)
Come Mr. Tallymon, fill my boat with ganja (dcmmwgs)
Load six bales, seven bales, eight bales - TON!
Six bales, seven bales, eight bales - TON!
Dooo-ope! Smok-ee do-o-o-ope!
Daylight come mon me wan get stoned*
Fiddler’s Green is another good traditional song that I can’t find a version I like to link, now. (Schooner Fare did an excellent version of it, BTW) A nautical take on the Unfortunate Rake cycle of songs.
