    Music for sailing

    This summer I know I'm going to spend a lot of time driving my car and, if everything's going according to plan, on a boat too.

    My compilation CDs are at least two to three years old and everybody is bored to death with them so it's time to prepare some new CD.

    I'm going to start 2 threads "Music for the road" and "Music for sailing", your suggestion are much welcomed.

    Thanks in advance

    For sailing you're going to need laid back but thought evoking enough to keep you awake. May I suggest some accoustic Paul Weller,Sting or may be even Noel Gallagher.

    The funeral march.
    Sailing is so slow you'll be dead before you get anywhere.

    White Ladder - David Gray

    It's a few years old now, but it's a definite crowd pleaser and it's got this gem on there..




    You're being a bit greedy starting two threads so here's one for driving, again another popular album, Tracy Chapman



    Going with the theme of albums people know and therefore happy to go along with...

    Beatles - Revolver
    Led Zep - IV
    Alanis Morrisette - Jagged Little Pill
    U2 - Joshua Tree
    Bob Marley - Exodus (a story of a journey itself)
    Coldplay -A Rush Of Blood To The Head

    Also a few hits compilations...

    Rolling Stones - 40 Licks
    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers - Greatest Hits
    David Bowie - Best Of Bowie

    Well that's what I've normally got in my car anyway.. oh and don't forget Vivaldi - Four Seasons



    Happy trails...
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Don't even consider any whale songs, it's not what you want to here in the middle of an ocean.

    When I am sailing I rarely listen to music. I love the natural sounds of the sea, the sound of rippling sails, the wildlife; even the freight train roar of breaking 'greenies'. However, my seafaring anthem, which has nothing to do with the sea is Great Southern Land by Icehouse and, although I know it's daggy to admit this, background music from Anya seems to 'fit' nicely.

    Then there's Yothu Yindi Djapana


    For fans of Mandawuy Yunupingu's music (Yothu Yindi) it is sad to note his recent death.

    Just did a 1700 mile sail, never played music once. Sailing is not a relaxing gig unless there is no wind in which case it is a long day

    My thoughts entirely. I just posted a question on musical requirements on a sailing forum to which I contribute. Already quite a few answers and it seems that offshore sailors listen to music far less than those who are casual weekend sailors. I would guess liveaboards in marinas probably listen much more than most...waterworld's trailer parks can be noisy places.

    I'll post a link to a blog when I get to San Carlos in October. I'll post pix on TD as I make my way across the Pacific. And just to please Harold, I'll post shots of water and seagulls in the Sea of Cortez, The Marquesas, Tahiti, Tuamotus, Tonga, Fiji, Samoa et al. Maybe even a wee tortoise if I get down to the Galapagos Islands, and a shot of him, buried up to his neck above a beach on Easter Island.
    ............now there's an idea

    I haven't finalize yet. According to the majority it seems the best music is no music at all. I'll probably take a couple of USB loaded with about everything and play according to the inspiration of the moment.

    To be honest my main concern at the moment is tomorrow we're going to India. I hate flying. I was thinking with time it's going to get better. It doesn't ! And the fact that we have booked some local budget airline doesn't make me feel any better.

    Any suggestion for a playlist "Panic in the sky" ?

    There's only one tune you should be playing whilst pulling into the harbour...

    Proof again that you can find everything on the internet. That is quite a good list! Off to Google to find the .mp3 version of that.
